Our Fall 2012 collection will be dropping soon, so we figured it’s as good a time as any to start throwing stuff up for you guys to check out. This time around it’s the Halo Warthog Resistance, an item that’s been getting a lot of hype and is sure to be a new flagship piece in every Halo fan’s collection. So let’s dig into it.
The NEW Warthog
Perhaps the most iconic vehicle in all of Halo (that isn’t the size of a small city), this is our latest revision of the Warthog. We’ve never been content to leave designs in the past, and this time around the Warthog has been updated with a more subdued color palette and an even more extreme attention to detail.
The typical Warthog mainstays are all here (independent suspension for each wheel, of course!), but everything has been made better. For example, a much sleeker, sturdier footstep and the bars around the hood.
The Turret has been given a whole new level of realism with a bullet chain and an improved handle.
The rear contains a functional tailgate with attached nitrogen fuel canisters.
Also included: a matching weapons container!
The best Warthog we’ve ever made. But that’s not the end of this set. It’s actually just the beginning.
So the story of this set is that a UNSC Recon team has discovered this ancient Forerunner Structure — and so has an Elite Zealot. We’ll get to those guys later, but let’s take a look at this thing.
What is it? A canon? A beacon? Who knows … whatever it is, it’s definitely important to understand it before the enemy does.
The flaps around the perimeter open up, likely to facilitate in doing something horrible.
These new Spartans have been upgraded with the latest in MJOLNIR technology! This set comes with a Spartan Laser and the NEW Sticky Detonator, which shoots sticky explosives and then detonates them remotely!
There’s also a black Assault Rifle included.
The new armor design (left) is a bit bulkier than the older design (right), but has more details and produces an overall more powerful silhouette.
New Elite Zealot
So the new Zealot is … monstrous. I’m not sure what other word to use. It’s huge, it’s vicious. With Carbine in hand, it’s our Spartans’ worst nightmare.
We’ve packed an insane amount of detail onto such a small figure. The manually-sculpted design has a very organic texture. A combination of matte paint and the metallic red plastic accentuates the armor. There are even impossibly-small painted details on the forehead.
The new Zealot is very, very different from the old design. It’s bigger both in terms of bulk and height. It has a much more animalistic appearance. And as I had mentioned, the addition of matte paint really adds a whole new level of depth.
So that’s the Warthog Resistance. We’re not done with this set entirely, and you’ll see exactly what we mean pretty soon. But even without anything else, this is an amazing set. The latest and greatest Warthog. The return of Forerunner architecture. New Spartans and a new Elite Zealot. A new weapon — the Sticky Detonator. And this is just the tip of the iceberg for our Fall 2012 collection.
Hope you’re as excited as we are!
