Wow - An animatronic Smaug?? Can't Post

Here's an interesting point from the TORN interview with GDT:

"The only thing I will be pushing for more in these films that the other three are full animatronics and animatronic creatures enhanced with CGI, as opposed to CGI creatures themselves. We really want to take the state-of-the-art animatronics and take a leap ten years into the future with the technology we will develop for the creatures in the movie. We have every intention to do for animatronics and special effects what the other films did for virtual reality."

Could you see an animatronic Smaug for the cave scenes?? I can! Might be a big much to expect a animatronic, flying Smaug, but what the heck!
