    Blizzcon is starting now and Chris Metzen, the creative director of Blizzard (World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo) held a speech on what defines the idea "geek". He then proceeded to show various pictures of what "geek is" and the first image?

    The first six Transformers Classics figures.

    Most of us already know that Metzen is a huge Transformers fan, from loads of Optimuses in his office to various references in World of Warcraft, but this was cool to hear.

    Also nice with the shout-out to Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown, also not surprising considering there is an NPC with his name, a server with the same name and the fact that they always point out their love for SNK in press tours.

    Cool!

    Also, in Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, the "Viking" unit will say a very familiar Optimus Prime line if clicked on enough times.

    I hope Kickback mentions this in his next not-news segment.

    The only line I recall hearing the Viking say is "Transformation systems, primed."

    Other than that, Terran have at least 3 units that transform: Vikings, Seige Tanks and Thors if you count Thorships.

    Pretty sure they eventually say "Transform and roll out". They did in videos from the original betas, anyway.
