I was wondering does anybody think that we will actually see what the Forerunners look like in Halo 4?

Yes, we've already seen the Prometheans and we know a Forerunner will return as well. Can't wait.

Not sure why, maybe i interpreted the past games in an unusual way, but for some reason i always thought the forerunners would be like humans. Not saying they would be the exact same but similar.

Humanoid? Two arms, two legs, one head and all that.

You sorta see them in Halo Legends.

on all the halo-themed forums I've ever been on, they always bitch that stuff in Legends was semi-canon so they might not actually look like.
once I saw that sequence (when Cortana is recalling the history of the Forerunners) the image kind of stuck.

From Halo: Cryptum and Primordium we get a few details on their Physical Characteristics.

They are generally very similar to Humans. Although the Biggest thing that has always stuck out to me is that Forerunners evidently have a lot of Body Hair, more like some kind of Fur. And on the Didact/Bornstellar its purplish I think?

Are the Prometheans Forerunners? Or are they the creations of the
Forerunners?

The Prometheans are the best of the best in the warrior part of a ranking system. Halo 4-wise, Frankie seemed to be hinting that these particular prometheans were modified pretty heavily to an almost trans-forerunner state.

In the Forerunner civilization (at least in the Forerunner trilogy) the ranking seems to go Builders > Warriors > Miners

I'm more interested in if we'll ever see a Precursor.

I believe we did see one in Halo 2. Remember Gravemind?

The Gravemind isn't actually a Precursor. If my theory is correct, GM (and all Flood forms) are a step down from the Precursor and eventually with enough sustained biomass the Precursors could be reborn. From what Cryptum and Primordium have revealed, Precursor are supposed to be large Bi-pedal creatures with 4 arms and a sort of spike-club tail that runs down their back from the top of the spine. From what's been mentioned, they suggest it was loosely modeled after a Sea Scorpion.

Also, Forerunner as seen in the Halo Anniversary Terminals. Seems pretty similar to their appearance in Halo: Legends. Not sure if this is part of their warrior caste though. If I'm not mistaken, this scene involved the Librarian, so I would assume the Forerunner are a bit more extreme looking for combat-related intimidation purposes.
