'Halo 3' Hero Undergoes Sex-Change Surgery

'Halo 3' Hero Undergoes Sex-Change Surgery

In 1986, gamers were stunned -- STUNNED -- to find out that the armored space adventurer they had been playing as in 'Metroid' for the Nintendo Entertainment System was actually a she (gasp!).

Yes, until that time, most ass-kicking in video games was done by a male protagonist, and this revelation that the main character, Samus Aran, had breasts both confused and excited an unsuspecting nation of gamers.

Fast-forward to 2007 and though female video-game heroes are now fairly standard, some games still haven't gotten the hint -- 'Halo 3,' for example. Thankfully, there's artist David Johnson who specializes in goth fairy sculpts. He recently took it upon himself to give the game's iconic alien-basher, Master Chief, an extreme nip/tuck. When the bandages came off, Master Chief had become "Mistress Chief." This one of a kind, 8-inch figure is currently up on eBay for nearly $2,000 and looks pretty amazing -- even if the heaving cleavage and exposed midriff is a little insensible for interplanetary warfare.
