I did a double-check on the video to see if anything had changed, even the background music. The videos are exactly identical, so it's not really worth going over more than we have.
They're Plague Doctors. That is, Doctors wearing the outfits usually worn during the Black Plague by folk treating its victims. The "beaks" are meant to hold fragrant herbs and flowers since they thought the scent from the victims was what caused the sickness.
They are also the subject of numerous creepy pasta and literary references.

He did say the early packages were for advertising. Maybe the newer ones will have different video.

Maybe all of the characters are from the comic book.
They may all be in it. I imagine that the comic is the story of how the cracks were formed. Its very existence perpetuating the problem.
DO NOT DOUBT THE SAFETY OF THE WALL. NO ONE SHALL PASS.◊
I know that. But they were real. That's my point. I agree.

So are cats and guys in chain mail and sparkles. The fact that something is real is not a preclusion from being in a story. And, in fact, there are far more stories about real, innocuous things than there are about fantastical or dangerous things. It's possible that entire populations of small animals and objects have made their way here through the cracks unnoticed because they are things we see everywhere every day that also happen to be in stories.
I imagine Mr. A in the White Light Room going "The wall is breaking and all they can send me is a LIME?!"

dryunya wins the thread.
To be fair, it is a Lime with a chaingun.

Has anyone actually sent Limeman?
Guys! The whole of both reality and unreality is in danger!
Badass! A lime!

For shits and giggles I asked Mr. A what he thinks of Lime Man. I wonder if he'll reply. :P
I think we should have called all of our characters "Gurt", just so that Mr. A cracked up every time he called them.
You can get quite a bit out of it.
I wonder when/if we'll meet another character from the fictional multiverse. So far we only have CC and Poirot.

Aaaaaaaaaand that's going onto Memes.TV Tropes and MemeticBadass.TV Tropes...
EDIT: Mr. A replied. Someone, quick, write a story about Lime Man and send it in!

Anyone else curious how the guardian will be introduced?
If not a new WTF, s/he'll probably get a Twitter.
"So guys I found this new footage"
Lime man appears and punches out the plague doctor creatures.
Conceived as a laboratory experiment many years in the future, he was bred to be the perfect soldier.
“It’s perfect!” one of the scientists was quoted as saying. “He has a perfect defense mechanism. Anyone gets too close, he spits acidic juice in their eyes. They’ll melt in seconds!” (The scientist declined to comment on accusations that he apparently didn’t know what “acidic” meant.)
Gurt had many brothers in the arctic testing compound (known colloquially as “The Fridge”). While his was neither the strongest nor the smartest, he could take blow after blow after blow and still keep on fighting. Because of this, his creators deliberately controlled the social environment to make everyone hate him, so as to allow him to take as much punishment as possible. This in turn cultivated his anger and rage, eventually bringing him to breaking point. On a berserk rampage, he broke out of the compound and accidentally broke INTO a new one – specifically, the arctic prison cell containing the most dangerous, unrepentant criminals in the civilized world.
Gurt survived, and they managed to fix the place up before many had escaped. But there was always the worry that someone might hear of the prison break, and try for a repeat performance. And it was then that Gurt found his calling: he would round up the criminals, cart them back to jail, and stand watch over the prison so that they would never escape again.
