Guess that means we'll be seeing the design before April at the very least. Just reserved mine.

i know a number of people on the board got this and there seems to be a post here in there if you aren't afraid to visit the Legendary part of the site, but i figured it would be more relevant to the print section. I have probably 15 or so artbooks etc related to Godzilla and the number one reason i buy them is to see the behind the scenes shots of the suits and the miniatures... but this movie didnt really have that... so most of what i found interesting was the concept art.

My biggest complaint with the book is that there are a number of places where some really great art is placed across two pages, and the middle of the image gets sucked into the binding, which is frustrating to me to the point i would rather have just seen the picture smaller.

Anyway here are a couple shots of concept art etc

Very high quality book, probably not as nice as the Pacific Rim book when it comes to the range of "features" but still a very solid artbook
