As you know by now, Microsoft brought the Halo Warthog to Sydney as part of their promotional activities for Halo 3: ODST. We were curious to find out how much it might cost to keep it here.
There’s only one Warthog in the world. It was custom built by Peter Jackson’s Weta Workshop back when they were gearing up to make a Halo movie. That’s it pictured right there.
Kotaku reader James wanted me to ask Bungie producer Curtis Creamer, in town to show off Halo 3: ODST, how much it would cost to rent the Warthog for the weekend.
“I don’t know how much it would cost to rent it, but I have heard that you could buy a Warthog. WETA would make one for you, but the cost of it is something around $500,000,” replied Curtis.
Seriously? Five hundred grand?
“You can make anything happen with enough money!” he added.
Right. Who’s keen to donate a dollar to the Get Kotaku A Warthog charity?
