Kind of. Kind of. Kind of. Yes. Yes.

There's one variant of Amumu and Blitzcrank's abilities that can only be done if you have the condition that you can hookshot to terrain.
So if he hits a champ or creep, he will pull them to him, if he hits a wall, we will go to it, BUT if he hits a champion, THEN terrain behind it he will pull himself and that champion into the wall, probably stunning something close to Condemn.

Do I win a prize?

The anchor is not pass-through, unfortunately, no.

He may have other CCs. I hear that getting hit by an anchor may be quite forceful.

Is this an ult or a regular skill? Champions like Ahri and Kassadin have their mobility tied to their ultimates so they aren't mobile monsters from level one. Is this champ the same?

If I'm understanding this correctly we're finally going to be getting a champ with a line-wall akin to Earth Shaker.

If this is true then I know who I've been saving my IP for.

Pirate tank? You've sparked my interested, glad I didn't get the brand skin on sale. Should this all be a farce, I will be slightly dissappointed, only slightly though

This is his Q.

Actually, hookshots aren't that great of a normal mobility skill - they're pretty good for escapes or initiates, but pretty bad at everything in between.

Unfortunately, no.

If you throw something, and it pulls you to the first terrain it hits - How could you move through it? Zen.
