Here are my new, ultra improved M12 LRV Warthog! A very big thanks to Justins Stebbins for many of the ideas.
The warthog itsealf, with a new custom windshield, inspired by Justin. I just have to say that I like this LAAG (Machinegun) more than anyone elses', why? I know that mine got four barrels, but it's much smaller and closer to scale.
Underneath, I skipped the elastic bands, making the whells to "bump" when in the air, why? Don't know, just thought it looked better.
Close up on the new windshield.
Back, inspired by guess who?
"Saddle up boy!"
"YEEHAA! Let's roll!"
"Incoming blue ones!" By now you've probably noticed my new red and blue minifigs, and my cameras crappy flash.
"Get your pants back online, we got a 'Hog to flip!"
"Watch out! The blue ones is back!"
"I'll get you for that you son of a..."
"For Jimmy!" BLAAAURG!!!
And now for the final chase... To be continued... Hopefully...
In reply to: brass munkey: Well, plagerised may be the wrong word, inspired fits better, I made my Warthog as I did because I don't think you can get more accurate on the spots I "copied", and I want my creations to be so accurate as possible, don't you do? And what do you mean with bulky? It looks like that in the game, check this picture out.
In reply to Zachimia 3: You know, most people would find it quite offending if someone wrote: "From MY EXTREMELY BETTER HOG!"
first of all i'd like to say this to all the people who say you copied the warthog: "the whole point of mocpages is to show others the cool ideas we have, then everyone can "copy" those ideas and techniques and make their own creations better. so it's ok if some parts are copied, if he said it was his own original ideas then you can yell at him for plagiarism, but since he gave justin credit for all the copied parts, he is not plagiarizing anything." now, about the moc, i like it, mostly for the fact that you didn't use those dumb megabloks spartans and because of the funny battle scene at the end. i like the turret (even if it's bulky) because after all, it IS supposed to be a freakin' HUGE gun. and the custom spartans are really good. nice moc!

Finally! I saw your old hogs and thought: what was he thinking? This one is really good.
OMG, I don't even copy MOCs this much. Sorry if you think I'm flaming, but really this is kind of pathetic. The M41 LAAG is HUGE, and the tires have street tread. Please try again, I think you can do better.
I take back most of what i said before, everything accept the bad turret lol. This is a good worthog, I still think you should try once more though, unless your totally put off of warthogs... anyway this is a great job! I hope to see some halo 3 from you in the future. Or you can check out my growing collection of "premature" Halo 3 MOCs, (its not really a theme but I still made it up to keep the critics who think im too early happy)

looks abit too much like scorps for me. The turret is abit big too.
Great work! I likee the gun and the suspension system (which by the way could you try and post instructions 4 the suspension system?) And the fact it's green (oh and what sets have a lot of green pieces?!?) well overall very good but the turret, although cool lookin, is a bit big.
Like brass monkey said, this actually looks far too copied to be an orginal creation. However, I like the way you did the windshield better than Scorp's, the tow hook is good, the wheels are okay (I personally like them grey if possible), and.....Well, I like your machine gun barrel, it does look much more to scale and accurate, but your turret is just bad man. It's like a box with flaps on it. Justin's is much better. But I think you did a much better job on the windshield part. But it looks too copied for me to give it a 5 smiley. Sorry.
Your first caption looks awesome, but the 'hog isn't all that great...the only reason I see for your warthog to be better than Saber-Scorpion's is that you've cut the windshield better. Far too boxy and studdy, and the gun looks strange.
