Well if it is here’s a Scorpion Main battle tank from the game.
Thanks to the seemingly unending series of terrible ‘Warthog’ and ‘Master Chief’ creations that plagued MOCpages for years we’ve actively avoided publishing Halo models here, so ingrained is our hatred of them. However those days are now thankfully long gone and we’re finally able to admit liking a Halo model. Kinda like it being OK to admit to liking Journey’s ‘Don’t stop believing’ now that Glee has finally finished. Just us? OK… No matter, this Halo Scorpion Battle Tank is rather good, it comes from ZiO Chao of Flickr, and there’s more to see at his photostream here.
Halo. It’s one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, with over 65 million sales worldwide and grossing almost $3.5billion to date. And it’s also the cause of more awful Lego creations than probably any other genre in history. Besides Bionicle of course.
A Halo Warthog is therefore not an unusual creation. The online Lego community is plagued with them. But today’s find is an unusual creation. Because it’s a Halo Warthog… that’s really bloody good.
Built by previous bloggee and TLCB favourite Nico71 this fully remote controlled Technic Halo Warthog is a spectacularly well-engineered creation. Featuring remote control all-wheel-drive complete with diff locks, all-wheel-steering, all-wheel suspension, and a remotely operable gun turret, it’s very probably the Elves’ favourite creation of the year so far. Until it squashed them of course, but they’re used to that by now.
