Check This Out: Avatar's Heavy Lifter On Display at E3
If you've been following the recent developments on James Cameron's Avatar surrounding the debut of the video game at E3, then you've probably already seen the screenshots. But that's not all that was being shown at E3. A few weeks ago we posted one small "spy shot" of a power-suit mech from Avatar. It was our first real glimpse at any machinery from the movie and for some of us, it was quite exhilarating to see. Well, it looks like that spy shot came from the show floor early on, as Ubisoft has the full heavy lifter mech on display. Collider was in attendance at the show and got a few photos of the thing, so check it out below!
After that spy photo hit a few weeks ago, this "heavy lifter" (as it's being called) has shown up in concept art and screenshots, meaning it's either used a lot in the movie or a very important machine. Word is that these powersuits are "worn by human troopers on the surface of alien planet Pandora. One sequence is going to show a group of Powersuited troopers, led by Matt Gerald's Corporal Lyle Wayne fleet, laying waste to a Na'vi village." We still haven't seen a trailer or much else, but with all this being revealed, I think we're getting much closer. We're definitely expecting this to show up at the San Diego Comic-Con in July as well.
