Remember the functional Bandit Technical that we had made for the Borderlands 2 Live Action trailer? It has found a fitting new home with Paul C. Miller and Michael Orr at Weekend Wasteland!
The vehicle was originally created for the commercial by Hollywood vehicle coordinator and creator, Dennis McCarthy. Paul and Michael bought the vehicle, fixed it up, loaded it with cosplayers and had one of the most popular vehicles at Weekend Wasteland. Nice work, guys!
