is the richest fuel for the Internet's geek blog engine. The special effects master known for his creature work on such films as 'The Abyss,' 'Ghostbusters
,' 'Spider-Man 2
,' and 'Where the Wild Things Are
' was the source of some of ComicsAlliance's most popular blog posts after he released never-before-seen photos of costume concepts for 'Superman Lives

with which to release tens of thousands of hours
of behind-the-scenes footage from his 30-year career in special effects, and among that material is an astonishingly advanced animatronic version of the Hulk
. Developed for Ang Lee's 2003 film 'The Hulk
,' the unused robot
appears to eclipse the middling quality of the CGI version we ultimately saw.
