Bad Robot? More Like Awesome Robot!

MMO-Champion datamined an image for a red robot companion early in the 5.3 PTR, however it wasn't clear whether or not the model was really for a pet that would be obtainable by players. Lucky for us, Blizzard has announced that it will be a pet created by Engineers in a future patch!

The red robot, or Bad Robot, is homage to JJ Abram's Bad Robot Productions. You may have seen it as part of the opening credits for more than a few movies and TV shows. :)

We still don't know when and which patch the robot will be found in, how players will obtain the recipe, what profession level will be required, and what mats will be necessary to craft the "Bad Robot". One detail that's been mentioned, though, is that everyone "has a chance to get their hands on this pet". This implies the pet will either be BoE or cagable and tradable.

Still... with so many unknowns, I suppose this is merely just a preview of what's to come. Blizzard, you tease. :P
