I think Brian was right about the list veering a bit, but a real 
paleontologist stated this thread so it MUST have some relevance.  In

They did do an animatronic Godzilla, which cost millions of dollars.  It 
was very large and complex.  Devlin and Emmerich justified a smaller 
budget than De Bont was willing to deliver based on the use of 
animatronics, whereas De Bont had demanded 100% CGI. 

Guess what?  The Animatronic Godzilla would not work.  It failed again
