BlizzCon Exclusive WoW Pet Is A Space Marine, Sort Of

Meet Grunty the Murloc Marine, the StarCraft-flavored exclusive World of Warcraft pet that should be available for ridiculous amounts of money on eBay following this year's BlizzCon.

He's cute. He's cuddly. He's got a gauss rifle. Grunty the Murloc Marine is the premium pet for this year's BlizzCon event, available to those who attend the yearly celebration of all things Blizzard Entertainment in Anaheim this August. As with last year's exclusive polar bear mount, Grunty will also be given to anyone who orders the DIRECTV pay-per-view coverage of the event.

While Blizzard just dropped official word of the new pet, MMO Champion plumbed the depths of the latest public test realm build in order to deliver a little video of Grunty in action.
