I actually thought they looked exactly alike, yes the protoss one is more organic than machine, but the leg design, head, mandibles are all practically exact.

The sleek aesthetic of the protoss unit is different for sure, but i'm laughing at you guys saying, "There is definitely not a damn thing the same about these two!"

Seems like you can never point out that two things share some commonalities without people getting mad. Like, if you ever happen to say about an mmo, "Oh, it's like wow." People will get insanely pissed.
I don't think anyone's mad. You just picked a stupid comparison.

The protoss one has similar legs, and mandibles. That's it. Hardly 'near identical'. The Protoss one looks more like the Tom Cruise WotW ships than it does the Stalker.

The fact remains that there really isn't too much variance from the typical sci-fi walker type of vehicle. There's kind of a standard template and then it's varied slightly to fit whatever IP it's being used for.

"There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has though and purpose which functions on an unimaginable, galactic scale and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us by instinct. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all, it must know us only as Prey."

spyder looks like it has the potential to be a real pain in the ass to put together.

You can never be prepared for the unexpected
