    Damn, so it was the one they imported ages ago. I'm sure Roosterteeth could have started a fundraiser to get it fixed and improved. Having a road worthy Warthog should be every Halo nerd's dream.

      Burnie had said on a podcast a good while ago that it wasn't legal to drive in the US, and they couldn't transfer ownership of it unless it was first street legal.  That being said, they couldn't drive it because of safety and emissions regulations, but the government was completely okay with them blowing it up instead.

    Destroy it because it wasn't "running right"? All that custom frame work and body work to make a badass custom warthog, and it is destroyed because of the motor? Tops a used motor to put in that thing for replacement would be pretty cheap, a couple hundred. Flip was cool, but senseless destroying of something that is more than a prop.

      I think they said on the Podcast that they legally were no longer allowed to keep it for some weird reason. Something about the EPA getting involved or something. Plus it was also not legal to drive at all so since they couldn't have it any longer why not send it off in a ball of fire?

    I feel sorry for the dude that built the Warthog, sure RT bought it off him and it was starting to pack in but still... I hope he built himself a replacement after RT bought it off of him.

    Warthog explodes and everyone is looking it at threw their phones when they already have multiple cameras set up to record it... sad to think this is how the world is nowa days.

      Apparently having your very own inferior copy made personally by you makes it special somehow. It's got me fucked, makes no sense.

      more cameras are always better - it means that RT could use their phone footage if the main cameras missed something,and they might catch some commentary from the people watching it, and it means they get to tell their friends what they saw before it airs. Can almost guarantee that some of this video was shot from one of those phone cameras

      Sure, take the video, but look at it with your own eyes, seems a lot of people these days see events they're at second hand through their phones.  I get OP's point.

    To think that they started in a one bedroom apartment, now they are doing full scale production and live explosions, that's progress.

    Feel free to mod this as lame.  Why do people film stuff that is being filmed? This is one of the times you wouldn't have to worry about the moment not be recorded. That's the entire point of what's happening. Additionally, the phone footage wouldn't be as clear or as close as what the production footage will be. When given an opportunity like this, put down the phone. Be in the moment.

      To keep for your own personal sake. To have your own footage. Why do parents film/take pictures of their child when they're at their graduation?

    Is this the same warthog that was at RTX15? If so, I can at least say I got to get my pic on it! RIP warthog!

      yeah, they had it on display this year as well, sadly this was filmed before rtx, so they had it there, but it was already burned, no one was allowed to touch it.

    This makes me think that there is a way to test the Assassin's Creed dive without using a living person. (... nor a dead person... no person at all... a simulated person... a Sim.)

      That would mean pressing a big X button and having a device flip a warthog for you is just playing the game at that point. No.


      Taking things from games and putting them into the real would somehow is what Immersion is all about.

      Well, closest to an immersion leap of faith that you're gonna get has been done. If you haven't, search for behind the scenes footage of the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie. Fassbender's stunt double performs it from 125 feet (granted, not into a hay cart) for the movie.
