Favorite Monster Robot

Postby thatsoundman » Sat Feb 11, 2012 3:31 pm

Ok, we are dealing here with a group of people with extensive knowledge of Toho, so, with that in mind what is your favorite Robot Monster -
Mine would have to be Mechagodzilla in Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla - 1974 version, and here's why, he would be unbeatable with the twirling head force field.

so, what is yours? :)

Tie between Kiryu and Hesei Mechagodzilla.
Give Zilla a chance.

Kiryu. I like the detail in the design, like the metal-musculature look of the armor plates. Extra points for evoking the original '74 version more than the Heisei incarnation did. I also absolutely love that red tear-drop light beneath the eyes. It's a wonderful touch on such a sad, exploited creature.

2nd would be Showa MechaGodzilla.

Kiryu's not a true robot but a cyborg. Your move CD.

I choose Robo Pteranodon.

Gotta go with Kiryu and Jet Jaguar. Both are somewhat sleek, agile and really good at physical combat.

Kiryu for looking really cool, but Mechagodzilla '74 for being a total badass.
It was Rodan.

Bwaaaaaahahahaaaa! He said Mechani Kong! I was kidding around about the cyborg bit.

And I've changed my mind again... The robo trilobite.

:lol: I guess you're right. Hmmm...okay, hows about this?

In the dialog regarding his Trilobite, Yuhara says it is "half-robot", quite specifically calling the exterior shell the "robot" part. So...Kiryu's robotic exterior is my favorite robot. Godzilla '54 just happens to be inside it. ;)
