That is, if Covenant forces only come ant-sized, then this Warthog can do serious damage. Because if the Covenant do show up in your backyard, we suggest you dial 911 and run like the wind to somewhere far, far away.
Moving on, what we have here is an interesting case of DIY flare and sheer coincidence. The resulting vehicle you see in the pic is from some guy named Dan. Dan recently bought a MacFarlane Toys scale model Warthog and noticed how its chassis fit one of his R/Cs. So with a bit of switcharoo and creativity, he is now the proud owner of a fully functional Warthog.
Being quite the proactive bloke, Dan even souped up and pimped out his ride. Those are newly installed LED lights at front and the vehicle runs a cool 35 mph in rugged terrain. If only the co-axial heavy machine gun fired pellets, this would be perfect for waging war on ants and assorted creatures infesting your garden.
We do believe this impressive bit of work deserves a place in the pantheon of Halo toys. It should inspire others, for that matter. In fact, we’re right about hankering for an R/C Scorpion tank that fires lead pellets. Trust us when we say it’s gonna be used to pester squirrels.
