E3 is an industry trade show centered around showcasing the very best video games that'll be coming out in the near future. That doesn't mean the show floor only has video game booths. There's also cars, cosplayers, giant replica mechs, and huge inflatable balloons — and Halo 4's upgraded Warthog vehicle that's just so beautiful.
While wandering the halls of E3 2012, we spotted a M12 Force Application Vehicle aka the Warthog parked in the middle of Microsoft's Xbox booth. Halo fans will know that the Warthog is as staple to the Halo franchise as Super Mario's fireball suit are to the Mario games.
Being the sneaky ninjas that we are, we took a few snaps of the slightly remodeled Warthog (now with more details!) before its driver could come back to kill us.
Halo 4 might have got all the fanboys to line up at Microsoft's booth, but the Warthog, whoo, it swept us off our feet.
Hit up our gallery, or if you want a moving-picture experience, watch our video tour of the Halo 4 Warthog replica below.
