    Does anyone know exactly how big the Driller actually is? According to this video, Twitvid , it is the lenght of three football feilds. That would make it 1080 feet long. What do you think?

    Well, from the tip of its head to the tip of the very last tentacle that makes up his "tail", I'd say that upwards of 800 feet is correct. I mean, watch the shot as the driller tears through the skyscraper. He goes into the building...and in...and in... and oh, now we're at the bulk of his body - the midsection. Imagine what the rest of him looks like. That piece of concept art they showed basically shows that the driller is like a fat snake. Very big but also INCREDIBLY LONG.

    I don't think anyone knows exactly, but we know he's way longer than a skyscraper is tall. I mean, he circles in and out of the building, but we never see his entirety above ground.

    I say about that much. Well a little less because it got the shit blown out of it by Optimus.

    It seems plausible enough, considering it destroyed whole city blocks with one move and was able to topple over quite a large building.

    Except for scenes when he's just leaving, (at at the beginning) we never see Driller's tail as he munches on the city, so yeah, I'll buy he's that long.

    Okay, I'll admit, though, that, yeah, that the Kaiju and Jaegers don't even compare.

    Except for the big Kaiju at the end of Pacific Rim.
