Wired and The Stan Winston School are building a new giant creature to show off at the San Diego Comic Con, and this year they are documenting the making of a 14-foot tall creature.

The creature known as Bodock was built over six weeks in 7,500 hours at the Legacy Effects facility, the award-winning character creation studio owned by four of the FX Industry’s most prolific and respected live-action-effects artists. He is fully functional, stands at 13’6” tall, 9’9” wide, 13’6” deep, weighs 2K pounds, and was partially created using 3D printing solutions from Stratasys, a global leader in 3D printing and additive manufacturing.

Can’t wait to see the final costume. Should look great moving around the convention – though it will probably only be seen outside as this thing is massive!
