Halo Covenant Banshee Fighter . This is a LEGO model of the Covenant Banshee fighter from the PC and Xbox first-person shooter game, Halo - Combat Evolved. . The minifigs shown here were made using DECAL (STICKER) designs custom-drawn by me. I now provide a printing service for these decals HERE.
The Banshee was one of my earlier Halo 1 creations, first posted on
10/27/2003. At the time, I considered it one of the more difficult
items from the game to make.
The 'Shee is by far one of the most fun vehicles to pilot in Halo, and
among the great vehicles in this game, that's saying a lot! It can be
rather annoying in multiplayer though, especially in Halo 1 for the PC.
Annoying, that is, provided you are not the one piloting.
As you can see, the top/back of the ship opens wide to allow pilot
entry, just like in the game.
The Master Chief seats himself in the cockpit by lying down flat - the
same strange method used in the game. In this case, he is held in place
by sticking the LEGO minifig's "toes" between the studs on the plate
One thing I was always curious about was why the flaps on the back of
the Banshee did not turn when the vehicle did. Judging by their
appearance, this function seemed obvious to me. Perhaps I'm completely
wrong, but I liked the idea, so I featured it on my LEGO model, as seen
For those who are interested, here's what my Banshee would look like if
it was purple. Which, by the way, it is NOT. Sorry.
Apparently the LEGO company is about as crazy about the color purple as
I am... which is to say, apparently they hate it.
