I found this posted at the Gaf forums. I think it looks legit and pretty cool to boot.

What's that reflected in facemask? (besides the "SO")

It looks like the Master Chief is trying to shoulder his way out of the box. 7/10

Awesome. I'll check out that visor reflection when I get home. Any larger version sitting around?

I really dig the color scheme and theme, but the actual composition is pretty poor. The title looks like an afterthought, everything is a bit crowded - like they moved the Chief to the side just to show some stuff behind him. It's not natural looking at all. It still manages to be my favorite out of the three Halo (regular edition) covers, but that's because the first two were pretty weak. But then, it's Legendary Edition for me. :banana:

I think it's real because amazon put it up originally and it has the microsoft crap all over it. I don't think Amazon would take that from a fanboy, but meh. Looks pretty sweet, I want the collectors edition at least but I hope it comes with that box art inside the tin, but I'm doubting it. :( I would be getting the Legendary Edition back when it was $100, but now it's $130, not worth it. I'm guessing we will get confirmation/hi-res version tomorrow in the Weekly Update.

it's actually quite reminiscent of the first cover, only slightly less aggressive...

I think that it's real artwork, and a fake cover. I would be fine with it if the MC was centered, but it all seems so... awkward, and off-balance. Checking out that reflection now.

I don't like how the top half of the Chief looks awsome and then toward the his legs it starts to look mediocre. Otherwise I give it a two thumbs up.

Well, I sat down and did my best. Difficult with such a small picture, to say the least. Here's what I got:

First thing I thought was "Drinol?", but on second examination, I'm thinking a vehicle. The outline almost looks like a Seraph, but I'm not too sure. Make of it what you will. The more interesting thing, I think, is what I found while enhancing the visor as a whole. WTF is this thing:

Edit: Wait. Is it just me or does look like some kind of giant bug?

Drew youre picture manipulation skills never cease to dazzle my simple mind.

It reminds me of the Aliens in THE WAR OF THE WORLDS. They also remind of the Stryders in HL2. Or it could always be one of these....

Whatever it is.

Like Ghaleon said, I like the color and theme but something just doesn't look right about it. One thing that comes to mind is that MC doesn't look iconic enough and some of that has to do with him being off-center. I also don't think it looks dark enough, maybe the image itself is too bright.

The thing that sticks out the most (and to me is why I think it's fake) is the Lettering in Halo. I know it's that style but it looks cheesy and not proper with the rest of the artwork.

It's not fake, it is the real deal. (I confirmed with Bungie.)

Well I actually like it a lot. More than the Limited Edition too. Just me I guess.

I think it looks pretty good aside from Chief being a little too far to the left. It reminds me a lot of the Halo 1 box art with the battle taking place in the background.

EDIT: it's growing on me. But i'm a crazy (fanboy) kind of guys so it's 130 on the big boy.
