Transformers in StarCraft 2?

Postby Cryosis Prime » Sun Aug 05, 2007 6:40 pm

Well, it seems that Blizzard has unveiled some of the new Terran units in StarCraft 2. Well, 2 new units in StarCraft 2, and 2 old ones making thier come back (Marine and Ghost). Check them out here.

Note the new Terran Viking, the sole reason I'm starting this thread. The Viking is, in fact a Transformer, being able to convert between a support walker and an aerial fighter unit.

Also, among the Viking's response dialogue is "Transform, and roll out!" Ironically, the Viking does not possess a "rolling" form. If you want to endure watching a campaign demo, you can hear the quote from the Vikings once you get to in game (Which I admit, takes a while.)

And yet another thing Blizzard ripped-off.. :P
I think they should be ashamed! I would have really loved it has a "Pissed", those funny quote they make when you click on them too much.

Because Hasbro pioneered transforming robots, and anything that has something similar is a ripoff. :roll:

I think there are some great Transformersfans in the Blizzardteam, I saw also that the Cliff guy who created Geas of War is a Transformers Fan. So I think Trasnformers will become more and more a culture.
