Remember that Attack on Titan Subaru commercial? The ad featured giant Titans. Two of them were actors in scary make up. And the third?

From the looks of these behind-the-scenes pics, the third one—the Colossal Titan—was a giant puppet. According to IT Media, seven puppeteers controlled the large-scale maquette. According to me, the puppet looks frightening.


Obviously, this was used with a combination of CG, but that's a combination that should make fans of old style special effects happy—and scared in a very good way.
