I like Jet Jaguar the way he is.

Maybe a Mecha that turns into an AI?

Ahh... ahhh... no!
Why make him a giant suit? He's fine the way he is, plus he already is a Mecha, just not a pilotable one.

HA! :lol:


Anyway, I wouldn't mind Jet Jaguar being made into a mech though the whole size changing thing would have to be ditched.

Jet Jaguar as a cumbersome, overpowered suit with no personality? Nah.

Well
How do we explain the whole size change thing if we ever want him back?

I like Jet Jaguar as a humanoid, Ultraman-style being. With all due respect, I feel at times as though we want to change existing monsters into things they aren't when we could just get something new anyway. If you want a mech, we see unlimited ways to design aesthetics, origin stories, etc, with mechs. Mechs are about the easiest to do, in fact. Due to what Jet Jaguar is, I don't really seem him readily returning to the Godzilla franchise again. As I've said before, it could make sense for Toho to compete with the Ultra film series if said series is successful enough and worth it.

I'd be interesting to see if one of the Jaeger is modeled like Jag as a homage! How cool would that be?

Haven't you seen the film? He programmed himself to do it. Simple as that 8-) .
To all you dub preservationists, my friends, you have my eternal thanks 8-) . Never stop what you do, you are amazing!

Nah. The fact that he's a robot with free will, nothing directly controlling him, is what sets him apart from the other Toho mechanical kaiju. That doesn't need to change.

^ I like that. The size-changing thing worked for GvsM, but would be harder to justify now. Having more than one body is much more believable, and opens up a variety of story options, too. Too bad JJ probably won't be getting another movie anytime soon.

Having his AI go between bodies might be more plausible, but it's a lot less fun.

This. Jet Jaguar don't give a skreeonk about physics. He does what he wants.

I think it's pretty obvious that when they did that drawing contest, the kid just drew a drawing of Zone Fighter or Ultraman

Tadaaaa, Jet Jaguar
