Cool new take on this monster !
For me, the Giant Claw was always probably one of the worst monsters I ever seen, I mean it looked so dam right ridiculous, I'm still wondering who was the ,,genius" that came up with the design for it, and despite the pretty good acting in the movie, it was still a bit of a fail, that puppet running most of it.
But still, love your take on this monster, despite that that Mohawk still bugs me, but still a very good take.

According to common legend the design was actually a disappointment to the studio, who outsourced the building of the puppet to Mexico.  When the final product arrived they were stuck with what they had and simply had to shoot with it.  I have to feel for them if that's the case, nothing like getting stuck with an inferior product you can't fix, but at least the doofy bird will live in infamy

Yeah, they so got trolled if that's the case and you can't at least have a bit of feelings for them, I mean they tried but I don't understand why they didn't delayed a bit more the production so that they can make it look way better or even make a new one despite the possible hates that they could have get but at least they would have made a pretty good monster movie.
But ah well you can't change the past anymore and you are right that the Giant Claw will continue to live

Very kind of you, thanks. I don't know how much "scarier" I actually made the big turkey but I'm glad people WANT to see it be meaner. Who knows, maybe a bad SciFi channel remake will be in the works if we're "lucky". :)

Actually, I think it's a vulture.

I'll be doggoned... you took the Giant Claw's design, and made him look... well, not exactly menacing, but a heckuva lot better. Nice job!

Thanks, I honestly wasn't trying to make any improvements because why change ridiculous perfection? But I guess based on the comments the bird sorta turned out a lot meaner and streamlined, or something. Thanks for looking :)

I think it's in the eyes. The original had big googly eyes, and these look considerably smaller and more menacing.

You're welcome!
