Clues in Artwork
 
There's at least two other clues there that I noticed while browsing the new artwork section.

http://www.starcraft2.com/artwork.xml

See Mengsk, or at least, the guy that we can assume is him, with the sword? Look behind him. That's certainly not a human, it's a robot for sure, but it looks nothing like any of the Protoss we've seen.

Also, look at the second page: Kerrigan. Her hair is breaking in some places and is actual hair in others, but that's not what it looked like before, her tendrils were highly inflexible and were nothing like hair. Also, notice she's nude (seems they're gonna earn that "T" rating), and human. Overall, it looks like she gets...de-infested.

A Terrazine Ghost? What were those things called?

Spectres, I believe. Or Specters, can't recall the Spelling. But either way, I don't believe so, the Spectres were still human.

??? That thing looks nothing like a Ghost, Ghosts are human, all the things that make them Ghosts are either mental or normal equipment. That thing has no hair, no mouth, spines or whatever on its back, and looks slightly feminine. It in no way resembles a Ghost more than it resembles any other Terran.

At 1:53, it looks like Hybrids or something.

From an artist's point of view, this a way to express something. Let's not take everything like so.

That thing behind mengsk looks to be a hybrid of some type and is it just me or does Mengsk look like General Lee lol.

I think you guys are over analayzing. It's nothing more than a ghost in some fullbody suit that flexible like Nova's and is black. He/She is wearing a mask helmet...

There is a chamber full of statis cells and inside a big one there's an odd creature. Hybrids for sure :P

EDIT: at 1:35.

True, gameplay artwork often is not exact to the game representation. But I still find it hard to believe that's what the Ghost looks like...maybe the Spectre, if it's in there, but still...

Also...yes, I clearly see something in an underground stasis cell surrounded by Pylons....oh yeah, that's a Hybrid! At 1:00, it seems the terrain is more multileveled with three different heights on the grass, previously only the Platform and Jungle terrains had that.

Or what about 1:40? It looks like a Protoss city on Aiur, but Aiur was abandoned...at 1:55, that's certainly the Xel'Naga Temple on Shakuras...

Also, concept art of Zeratul: AWESOME. My main Protoss man gets a new look. GFor the longest time I've been using the Dark Origins intro screen as my desktop...not anymore!

I made an article at another forum, but you guys caught it too.

I don't think the thing standing behind Mengsk (he looks older; could that actually be Warfield?) is a robot. It looks like a Spectre to me. In a sci-fi setting, especially one based around combat, robots tend to look like ... robots. Robots that look like Data on Star Trek are pretty rare.

I need to cut out the picture of the "Hybrid" and put it on the wiki.

Currently there 2 known Hybrid footage (likely they are Hybrdis :p):

The above image by Cajun, and at 3:43 on the Cinametic trailer (which has a concept art at the artwork movie as well). You can see some sort of creepy arm attacking (seems more like poking ^_^) Zeratul. It looks Zergish in nature, but it has 4 fingers O_o.

EDIT: Bah, can't print-screen it. Gay MediaPlayer!

2nd EDIT: There you go, posting this at SC:L as well.

3rd EDIT: Check it out, 2nd update on the main news post: http://www.sclegacy.com/

The figure standing behind "Mengsk" is definitely human or was so at one point in its existence. Notice the way it stands and holds itself -- it's feminine. I think that's our Nova.

Also, anyone else notice, in the trailer, a Protoss (Dark Templar, I believe) caught in combat with an unseen foe? The Protoss blocks two punches, meaning his attacker could be Protoss or an Infested Terran on level with Kerrigan... or perhaps even a Hybrid or modified Terran.
