So full disclosure, I don't play Halo games. I played a few levels of the first one and nothing ever since. I'm only vaguely aware of the mythology because I consume videogame media. But I always take a second to look at Halo figures because of my enjoyment of the web series Red vs. Blue which uses in-game characters to create hilarious videos.
And one of their first, and most popular, jokes was about the name of the Warthog... or the Puma.... Or the Chupathingy.
So hey, Minimate version under $15? Sure why not. It reminds me of the laughs.
Also, I like that this is the first (I think) minimate vehicle that can hold more than one minimate. It hearkens back to the GI Joe vehicles that could hold a half-dozen guys. Kinda. Very vaguely. At least in my head it does.
