"Dweller in the depth". It has the exact same head design with tentacles.
I saw another post that asked the same question. If it is, it's a very obscure reference.
I thought of WFC when I first saw it
The Driller is a reference to drills drilling through shit.
Doing a quick google search because I didn't know what the dweller in the depths was, it honestly appears to have a pretty generic appearance itself. So I don't think it's meant to be a homage.
I heard that it was a reference to the Dweller. It makes sense
When they described it in the book, that was my first thought.
Surprisingly, I was thinking the same thing.
I think if it was actually intended to be a homage to the Dweller from the G1 episode, they would have named it Dweller, not Driller....but this is just speculating without having seen the movie!
I think the whole idea came to exist independently from looking at G1. Bay, or somebody else, probably had the idea of a giant monster wrapping itself around buildings..in fact, didn't he try to get that exact same thing into ROTF at one point? Tidal Wave was a giant monster that would have used its gigantic tentacles to bring down an aircraft carrier.
But if there are people out there who hate this Driller creature, yet somehow become more open to it if they think it's a homage..by all means, go ahead.
Cthulhu Monsters am big.
The driller is a reference to...
If the driller isnt a some what homage to the dweller Id be more surprised than anything considering its a completely divergent plot device from the TF lore in the movie.
Besides it totally looks and moves like it with the multiple tenticles.
It also seems organic for the most part.
it even has the same kinda claw things at the end of the tentacles.
lulz @ SKYFiRe
Show me the head.
It's obviously a reference to Bay's penis...
