Ok,  the giant claw gets razzed for having a rather funny looking monster and deservedly so.

But by ghawd the titular monster in reptilicus was pretty laughable looking too and itcs time for a showdown

Which monster do you think was worse?

Now personally i'm going with reptilicus.  First off it had those stupider-than-a-trump-supporter tiny wings on it that just looked idiotic.  Also at least the giant claw's face had some articulation and movied a little.  The face on the reptilicus model was utterly immobile and rigid.

The scene where the giant claw was eating people  was at least a little scary. The scene where reptilicus ate a cardboard cartoon cutout of a man was groan inducing.

So that's my says what's yours?

The Giant Claw at least has a somewhat interesting design.  It's given exaggerated features, a goofy look with its big eyes, large nostrils, and extra long neck. It has personality. 

 Repticillicius is just a standard snake monster with fins attached.  Even if it was done with a more convincing style, like stop motion animation, it lacks a lot of distinct visual components that would make it a memorable monster. 

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...
