Which thing, though? Blue thing, or big beastie dog-thing...?
From what little I know of Avatar, supposedly James Cameron had the idea/story for this film 15 years ago, or something. Just waited until the technology was available for him to be able to work on it. If true, I suppose it would predate the Kroot, although on the other hand I doubt all the character designs were set in stone at that point...
Also, how does that thing take that many bullets in the face/mouth and keep on coming? Even if only a small percentage hit it still has to hurt!
I did like the gun stealing bit though - clever beastie!
I thought the exact same thing when I saw it. Almost made me start a Kroot army. Then I realized that those guys are 8-10ft, which puts them on par with a space marine, and they're not much bigger than guardsmen!
This movie looks like it's going to be pretty cool. I doubt that there was much set in stone, or that anything is particularly 'ripped' from other sources.
For example- the landers that the humans use look strikingly similar to a Pelican from Halo.
The big dog thing looks like a kroot/krootox - esque thing...strikingly, in my opinion. The dreds/flaps + the beak-ish maw are very similar.
The Na'vi look like an even mix of an Eldar and a Tau. The figures, faces and ears look eldarish, especially when compared to the eldar mug shot in Xenology. The wideness of the nose and the skin color are tau like.
ps movie looks awesome, i hope GW does a model line after it
Space Marines- The ultimate representation of 'Bros before Hoes'
the assault rifle shots are 5.56 caliber, the c mag is same model for the m4 or hk416. a fast, presice round but low on stopping power, considering its on high carbon alien world, the rifle is a pea shooter
the big monster really looks like a krootox, is GW will sue James Cameron for this one ?

Actually my first thoughts when I saw the avatar trailer a month or so ago included:
- those guys look like guardsmen. Hey, they even have walkers!
- those Na'vi look like a mix of skinks and wood elves. Look at the charge on their 'horses' in the trailer, wild riders? And they are blue, slim ( elves and skinks both are ) ,climb trees and use "terradons"
Me being a fantasy player I thought they really looked like a skink-wood elf mix, hadn't considered 40K yet, but they live in high tech enviroments, not jungles
The movie looks cool and I am definately going to see it!
Knarloc, it looks like a Great Knarloc. Time to goad him into battle.The big dog thing looks like a kroot/krootox - esque thing...strikingly, in my opinion. The dreds/flaps + the beak-ish maw are very similar.
