First Concept Art Unveiled for Legendary's Next New Godzilla

You may (or may not) remember that it was officially announced back in March that the fantastic Legendary Pictures and its partner Warner Bros would be officially bringing back Godzilla in a new movie due out in 2012. Although they don't have any writers, or a director, attached yet (as far as we know), and although we know nothing else about it, that doesn't mean Legendary can't start teasing it early on. We never saw this in person ourselves, but apparently at the Legendary Pictures booth at Comic-Con this weekend, fans could get a t-shirt with this new Godzilla concept art image on it that would come to life using augmented reality.
The clean image below comes from ComingSoon and we have a video of the augmented action at the bottom.
When fans would wear the shirt and look at it in the webcam, they could see Godzilla's "atomic breath" (blue this time!) shooting from his mouth, complete with his iconic roar. This little demo was designed by Talking Dog Studios and we've included a quick video of the augmented reality portion below. It's a bit crazy to see some concept art teasing a movie like this so early, but I think Legendary really wants to get Godzilla in to the mind of Comic-Con attendees again in preparation for this new movie, which is still two years out. Who knows if his "atomic breath" will stay blue and if he'll still look like this in the end. I'm more anxious to find out who's directing, but it is still an interesting first look at a new version of the iconic monster. Thoughts?
