Default What is the Blurred Out Unit in Update 88?

By now, many of us have seen Update 88 at the OGRE Minis Set 1 Kickstarter. This is incredibly good news for us. But, there is something else there...

Sooo, what is the mysterious blurred-out unit at the bottom right. What could it be? Here are my guesses. I want to hear yours!

Unit Likelihood
Vulcan: 85%
OGREthulu 10%
OGRE MK VII 5%

The blurred image begins "Combine" like the rest, and the lower line begins with an "M". It's too small a packet to be anything in the size range of an Ogre, but I can't think of anything smaller missing from the line that starts with "M".

Oh, duh, it's the Cruise Missile Crawler.

The "M" is Missile, with Cruise on the upper line thus:

Combine Cruise
Missile Crawler

Good points. I'm going to change my opinion to 99% for the Vulcan now.
Aaanndd, I just saw your second deduction. Man, you missed your calling. Shoulda been a forensic detective.
Okay, I'll buy that. I still think it MIGHT be a Vulcan. But, yeah, I'll go with CRC as most likely.

More importantly, if this entire set as pictured will be produced as Ogre Minis #4, man, my wallet is going to be a lot lighter. Here's hoping for matching colors to the existing sets, and the ability to get a "Mega-Many Minis" pledge level.

So, I blew up the picture (no OGRE pun intended) for a closer look. Yeah, the left side looks like the two "MSL" style bodies while the right side looks quite a bit like the I-bar carriage and the cruise missile itself. I think you nailed it Mack.

"Mega-Many Minis" Oh, I LOVE that. Beats my old "Too Fookin' Many Minis" pledge level I tried to convince Phil to put up in OGRE Minis 2. For the record, yes. I WILL pledge for a 4 X reward level. I've bought so many Set 1s and Battle Boxes that I will need that huge reward level just to get anywhere vaguely close to parity.

*sigh* OCD much? Yes. Yes I do. And where OGRE minis are concerned, I love every moment of it.

Worrisome idea. I don't see the mini for the original Combine CP unit. Hopefully that one is the one blocked out on the lower left.

Phil left a comment on update 88:

The blurred section is not a part of set 4. It's possible that it will happen in the future.

Yep. Maybe an Idiegogo. Perhaps along with a Vulcan and/or a Ninja and/or a MK III-B.
Just rampant speculation on my part.
