After my Ghost, I really wanted to try a purple Banshee, since I don’t recall seeing one before. Overall, I am happy with the results, though there are certainly some flaws. Some parts are too boxy and I’m not happy with the wing “pods”, but it’s the best I could come up with in this color. Also the Bionicle mask gives the front a nice smooth curvature, but the eyes are an obvious problem. I tried to fill them with some purple hose pieces, but it’s still an issue. Despite the flaws though, I think the overall shape and color give it the feel of a Banshee.
I also have a few new weapons near the end that I didn’t want to make a separate page for, so I stuck them here.
And, finally I’m getting a bit tired of Halo – so this will be my last Halo MOC for a while. I want to focus more on my own ideas instead of replicating existing designs.
After beating up your "Foundation-Class" with a harsh comment, I decided that I had to say something NICE about another creation of yours. Well, even though this comment was meant as a kind of "apology", this Banshee still deserves it. It's the most accurate in size, color, and detail that I've seen out there (Made of LEGO, not MegaBloks). The idea of putting a Bionicle mask up front is ingenious. You could use the eyeholse and call it battle-damaged!
I am always amazed at how you seem to conjure up these fantastic creations. I was wondering if you could possibly take a look at my banshee because I have a problem. The wings are much to flimsy and I was wondering if there was another way to make them more stable without sacrificing much shape?
this rocks this is by far the best banshee.
it is way better than saber scorps (no offense scorp)
this is because its purple where do you get purple bricks i want to make my own but i can't find any purple bricks. gah.

hey brian pllllleeeeezzzzzeeeee
reply to the contest pleez!?!
0mg th1s ar3 s0 1337! Also, could you or anyone who reads this, host a contest to make a map (multiplayer or campaign it doesn't matter) from any halo game... because not many people visit my page...
It can have figs or vehicles
It can be mini if it is still big enough
GREAT FREAKIN MODEL DUDE! I SAW THE MINIFIG LEGS ON THE SIDE TOO, VERY CREATIVE! like everyone else said , POST INSTRUCTIONS!!! also, the back flaps aren the perfect size, they just don't have the right shape. GR8 FREAKIN JOB!
I'm gonna be Mr. Critic here. The overall shape and color are good, but the wing flaps on the back need to be taller. The engine pods are to bulky looking, but they do sit on top of the wings. Also, unless halo 1 had an all purple banshee, it needs to have a red hood/purple body for 2 and greenish hood/blue body for 3. It's good, not perfect.
Im building your banshee too, but i cant realy get along with the bottom. Can you please help with the bottom? I know how the wings are built, but not how you connested them to the body.
dude,this thing PWNS!when I first saw the ghost I thaught it was a photo of it edited with legos! pls send ghost instructions

(LITTLE BRO INTO HALO, NEED A CHGRISTMAS PRESENT) IF SO THANX THANX AND UM.....THANX =D
These are the best Halo Legoes I've seen yet. The banshee is my fave aircraft to control. I built a Hornet, but it's not up ta snuff. Please check it out! I'd greatly appreciate it! By the way, how did you get so many purple pieces?
I know they're hard to find, but this is insane. Do you, like, work for Lego or something? Ah, well, good job as usual! Keep building!
What a spectacular creation. The perfect color, accurate size. Probably one of the best or the best on the site, though Scorps is still good. I am sorry to hear that you will not be making anymore, at least that is what I hear. Good luck with your future MOCs.
Superior banshee. Hopefully when LEGO makes new parts or when you discover new techniques you'll want to build more vehicles. But for now, I can't wait to see what you can come up with from your own imagination.
You know, it's funny, just a few days ago I was trying to make a rounded Banshee nose and having no luck whatsoever. I certainly didn't think of using a Bionicle mask! Heheh... Anyway, as jaw-dropping as always. I appreciate your efforts to stick to purple, and you still manage to get spotless results! This one's not quite as perfect as your Ghost (don't like the engines), but it's a harder vehicle to capture... and it's still a masterpiece of Halo LEGO, of course. I have a feeling you'll make more eventually... ;-)
You simply cannot stop building Halo Models, you have finally built THE lego banshee, warthog, ghost, etc. You have raised the bar for Halo mocs - a bit too high maybe - and even though I don't like Halo I have began to look forward to your models a LOT. Please build the mongoose ... or scorpian, then go on to your own designs. This is great-except for the grills on the sides of the cabin which look like they don't belong there and I don't think they do? Besides that its perfect and I love the mask. Welldone, Alex.

This is the most perfect banshee I ever saw! I don´t know how you do it but keep it going!
Goodbye halo mocs (for now). For the colors you have to work with I believe this turned out very nice. The bionicle mask was a good thing to try, I think it works very nicely there. Thanks for giving some much anticipated halo creations and I'm looking forward to some new things.
Though all the Halo freaks may have died a little bit inside to hear that this will be your last Halo moc for a while, I for one really want to see the stuff that comes out of your head. Okay, so that makes me sound like a brain-eating zombie or something, but you know what I mean.

The Bionicle mask will put more fear into it's targets as it closes in for the kill.
This is without a doubt the best Banshee I have ever seen. I'm not even joking, dude, this thing is amazing. It looks like you've got every detail down. And, not only did you get every shape right, but you managed to do it in purple! This is the first purple banshee I've ever seen! Great, great, great job. Keep it up man.
This is another amazing halo moc brian! i cant get my head around how you get these projects done so quickly! The bionicle mask is a great touch considering the extremely difficult shape that the banshee is famous for. A few months ago there was another banshee made in dark red that you should look up, it is just as good as this one in my opinion.
