“Driving under the influence of awesome…”

I don’t know if there is anything else to say except that the title above is exactly my sentiment.

Frankie *title credit goes to Frankie, btw* over at Bungie.net posted an article showing a picture of a full-scale working (well, except for the machine gun…regrettably) Halo Warthog assault vehicle, courtesy of WETA Workshop, NZ.

Halo warthog

Of course, we all know of WETA’s involvement with the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and we know that Neill Blomkamp (edited – from New Zealand, where WETA is based from) is directing the Halo movie. So, it doesn’t take much to surmise that this Warthog, or a slightly modified variation of the vehicle, will appear in the film. It has already appeared in the H3 video teaser.

VERY cool.

I’d love to blow a Hummer off the road with one of these things…
