Re: The "Swans"

The war machines are obviously based on a bird design, most likely swans. What genius! I wonder who thought of this? Take your goofy Star Wars Mil Falcon with the hand aimed turrets ("They're too fast!" Duh!)! I still say that along with the robot in Metropolis, and good old Gort, the WOTW war machines are the most awesome looking pieces of alien hardware ever in a sci-fi movie.

If they remake this film, and these were to come out of the crater again, it would be just SO COOL!

Indeed, Very elegant and menacing design. With a sleek,
oily almost organic feel to them.

Manta Rays

The film's art director, Al Nozaki, based the design on Manta Rays.

"Swans" with heat rays just sounds wrong to me.
