It pays to remember that the Great Goblin is grotesque in the book: 'a tremendous goblin with a huge head'. And given that GdT had little more time than it would take to do concepts before all the wrangling forced him off the movie, it wouldn't surprise me if the look of the Stone Giants was his work while what happens in that scene is someone else's.

But in any case, the guy can come up with some seriously scary stuff when he wants to and really understands fantasy in a way I don't think PJ does.
