Handling on the real life Warthog October 2nd, 2007
Halo 3 let’s you drive a warthog, but not like this. Here is the Bungie team trying out a real life Warthog. If only they created some of those Covenant vehicles, maybe we’ll get to see some if the movie ever pulls itself into gear.

And this is what they had to say about the upcoming Blomkamp short:
“The above image shows just how to scale the Warthog that WETA has been making is – that’s a real life human manning the gun. While there’s still not too much to talk about regarding the excellent work of Neill Blomkamp, the studio did get a sneak peak of his next short earlier this week. It prompted a number of “Wait, was that a…” and “ZOMGz” from the various folks around here, and needless to say, when it surfaces next, you’re in for a gritty and delightful treat.”
Looking forward to the next live action short. I am sure it will make us all salivate a little more about how great a feature length Halo movie would be.
