"BigDog" doing its thing:



(Surely I'm not the only one reminded of the training sequence in "Rocky IV.")

Biog Dog is definitely an advanced research project! Watching it go through its paces never ceases to amaze me. We're seeing the AT-AT walker from Star Wars in embryo.

I'm already thinking, "How can my squad trip this thing up if it's after us (WOLVERINES!), and I notice it can't be knocked down. It bounces right back up, and falling to it's knees don't hurt it.

It also reminds me of a Pierson's Puppeteer.

I agree with Katie that "Big Dog" is definitely creepy!

Only I'd add two large translucent insectile wings (and a muffler--damn that thing's loud!), and rename it "Big Fly." Somewhere, Vincent Price is spinning in his grave. "Help me, help me! Arrghgh!" Thud!

Sweet baby Buddha's left nut - that is cool as hell, but the sound is absolutely obnoxious.
