I realize that everyone went crazy town ape shit over the Avatar footage that James Cameron presented yesterday at Comic-Con, but Robert Fure was able to send a short video of it from behind enemy lines. I have to say that as far as the design is concerned, it looks like pretty much every other robot ever.
In fact, it looks like a direct rip-off from the gunner machines from Matrix Revolutions.
Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think:
Besides that guy’s head getting in the way, the video is a pretty clear look at the machine (for an iPhone), but I suppose it’s not necessarily the end of the world just because the design looks similar to other stuff we’ve seen before. Kind of disappointing, but based on the fan reaction last night, I imagine there’s still a disgusting amount of impressive stuff at the core of the film.
What do you think?
