I found this when I was checking my RSS feeds:

This dude modded his son's Power Wheels Silverado into a working Oompa-Loompa-scale Warthog from Halo. Best part: He modded a Vulcan to look like the chaingun and mounted it on the back!

YouTube Video!
Worklog!

For all the real nerds in the audience, he found that an 8.4 volt power source in the Vulcan gave the best balance of ROF and reliability.

I was more amused by the next picture, of the guy's four-something year old son throwing the horns.

Does it really matter?

Oh well, A video game is a great way to turn a kid onto firearms. I'm just warning, if the parent(s) go(es) this direction, the son might end up like this one. Hopefully that never happens.

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

Are you retarded? Video games did not cause that. There's so much other media out there that will draw children to firearms anyway.

But really, nothing media related is at fault. But you know who is? The parents that allowed a 12 year old kid (who obviously was a dumb ass in the first place) to have (or were dumb enough to have laying around) a .22 caliber rifle. People like to blame things like this on video games because its easier than accepting their shitty as hell parenting skills as the cause for the death of their child.

Also, if you're going to own a gun and have kids, people, gun safety and teaching your kids about the horrible things they can do is an excellent place to start.

Too bad the dude couldn't follow the forum rules and then acted like a little bitch about the thread getting closed.

Please shut up. The kid would have killed himself playing out something else anyways. The problem is parents that don't teach their kids the difference between video games and reality.

I have to chime in too. Videogames and guns don't cause kids to die. Stupid parents cause kids to die. I have been shooting guns since I was about 5 years old, and I knew to only shoot when I was with my dad, and I knew exactly how they worked and that they weren't toys. Gun education saves lives.

Alright. Cool power-wheel thing, but I just wanted to say that without the proper education, some things can go wrong. Anyone else? I think the kid deserves a Halo MA5whatever assault rifle from Buzz Bee.

Haha, didn't think of that. Somebody should contact the maker.

Looks nice, but some cons.....

If the kid gets on the back the vehicle will wheelie or even flip backwards, and when he is driving the Vulcan wil slam into his head while turning, other than that it looks nice....

(Although I think the colors would be more greenish instead of grey)

The discussion of violence in video games, sadly, qualifies as a political conversation in this day and age. I'd actually love to chime in on the matter, but, as is our general policy, we erotically massage political discussion of any kind on our NERF forums. Add to that the fact that the Viking gave a warning a couple posts back and this thread est kaput.

EDIT: It looks like we've veered wildly BACK on course, so I'll let the topic go. Please keep it to nerf.

If it does get flipped over, he can just hold down RB to put it back.

I think what they might just do is have the passenger shoot the vulcan and proceed to pwn them nooblidites, and use a nF Magnum replica as a fall back. Still, I always dreamed of making this kind of thing man! Just with a chain blazer or something instead....

Drive-by anybody?

I'd be interested to see the Vulcan in action, all the videos are simply the kid driving around. I've seen one picture with the kid holding the Vulcan detached, anyone know how the guy mounted it on the 'warthog'?

While I certainly can't say for sure - the Vulcan has a removable tripod mount (which isn't even all that useful) that has a quick-release mechanism. He probably just glued the tripod, or just the quick-release mech, to the Power Wheels jeep - allowing the Vulcan to be attached quickly. If he really went all out, he attached the quick-reliease to a swivel-mount of some kind.
