This is part one in a series I am calling "This Is NOT the Monster".
I have received countless emails over the past few days with various links to websites claiming to have a photo of the Cloverfield monster (or MGP as it is known as at UnFiction).
That photo actually comes from Peter Konig's gallery of "concept" art, at the appropriately named ConceptArt.org. The gallery is full of things that could be the monster, but are not.
Also on that page, it mentions that visual effects company Tippett Studio's Peter Konig ... is [the] art director for the upcoming, top secret JJ Abrams production "Cloverfield".
And if you don't believe me, Harry Knowles of AICN summed it up in one word: BUNK.

"The image shows models ... for potential creatures to be used in a video game production back in 2003, which was being done by Massive Black... Which just happens to be Konig's company."
