Oct 13 2009Power Wheels Modded Into Halo Warthog

power-warthog.jpg

I was never allowed to have a Power Wheels growing up because my parents were too afraid I'd back over my own head, but that's neither here not there, it's just one of the reasons I have parent issues. Anyway, some lucky tyke's father went and modded his to look like a Warthog from Halo. Sweet!

Fortunately, thanks to the folks at Bungie, we're all that much more knowledgeable about the DIY Power Wheels modder set. All it took was one M12 Light Reconnaissance Vehicle--better known as the Warthog--fashioned from the guts of a Power Wheels miniature truck--a "very used 2001 G3740 Street Scene Silverado," according to its creator.


That creator, flux83, has done a capable job of turning that Silverado into a teeny-tiny Warthog that looks to seat a maximum of two wee Spartans.

OMG how different my life would've been if only I'd had a Warthog Power Wheels growing up! I probably would have been popular in school and maybe even had a girlfriend. And you know what having a girlfriend means! Nagging, LOTS of nagging. Oooooh, swift burn to the ladies!

Hit the jump to see a video of the awesomeness in action and a link to the build page.

Thanks to Zak, flux83, Mister J, Tank and Professor N, who weren't allowed to have Power Wheels either but did manage to sneak rides on their neighbor's Big Wheels. Hey, that's something.

@2, are you some underpaid guy who lives in turkey who puts annoying irrelevant links on blog sites? You only have to answer the first part, I know the rest already.

@3, When you manage to get my boot out of your ass, I want it back.

I wonder if this Kid even plays Halo, or he just watches Daddy play.

hahaha

I love that he called it "The Chupa Thingy" - a brilliant reference to Red vs Blue.

Looks more like a Puma to me.

Best. Parent. Ever. I had one of the yellow Jeeps (I think) when I was a kid- I fought valiantly with my mom to not get me the Barbie car. I still miss that thing.

All it needs now is a Flux Capacitor.

Imagine that. Halo Warthog with a Flux Capacitor.

Epic.

@8 ... its gotta run out of bullets some time

i had a power wheel but all the other boys always made fun of me but i still loved my light red barbie convertable

Well, it drives as well as the one in the game does. Needs a marine to hop on the back.

Must See!!!
