Just found out it was released on facebook this afternoon, didn't see a thread yet so I decided to make one.

So what do you think this unit will be? Or what do you hope it will be?

Start speculating!

Looks cute. 
I'm no professional at SCII, but I hope that this ground unit is one that'll be capable of surviving Siege Tanks better than the rest of the Zerg.

Oh wait, I was looking at the picture as if the unit's head was to the right, so I was imagining it wearing a big helmet or something. Now I see its maw to the left and something that looks more like a Zerg's face than what I was seeing before.

Or one of those giant blue things from Starship Troopers but its ass is backwards.

@FluxWaveZ: It kind of looks like a Zerg version of the siege tank to me.

I think they released a trailer that has that specific unit in it, and a quasi-explanation of what it is.

Yeah, reading about other people's thoughts on the Liquid forums and looking at the picture, it's most probable that this is a Zerg siege unit and some kind of morph based on a Hydra and possibly a Roach.

I agree that it looks like a some sort of artillery-type unit, I also read the thread on TeamLiquid.

However I'm kind of hoping that it functions a little like a lurker, but maybe that would make it a little too much like a siege tank.

I'm not sure if I'd like a Zerg siege unit when there's Fungal Growth, Baneling drops and Broodlords around >_<

would be cool if it was a unit luncher, so you could throw banes into a ball or shot unit into a walled off base

Some kind of siege unit, the big cannon thing seems to support that and Blizz have been saying that Z lacks a good one (BL too hard to get to early, not as effective in certain situations). People on TL have been saying that the base/head looks like a Hydra sillouete so it could be like a Hydra morph into Lurker kind of thing.

I've also seen a lot of people saying it might be a roach morph. But the head really makes it look like a hydra morph.

Does anyone have any ideas what the new Protoss unit might be? Or what would like to see added to the Protoss army?
