Very cool monster. Can't help but think he'd have been way cooler in Godzilla vs The Sea Monster instead of Ebirah, but I suppose that's pointless whining at this point.

Definetly one of my favorite. I think it would have been nice to see him solo against Godzilla, and maybe not under control, but the movie he was in was good, and a good way to introduce him into the series.

Thanks. Now I want to have a pepperoni pizza. But I don't have any money. :(
Seriously though, his color was a very interesting choice.

I think he was just really allergic to Godzilla.

I like his warts. They give him nice texture.

I've heard a lot of people say they wish he would've been in the Heisei series. I kind of would liked to have seen him, but maybe we should be thankful he wasn't. You know damn well they would have given him a beam weapon which, like Rodan, wouldn't have looked right. The tooth-and-claw monsters should have stayed that way; that's part of their character. Anyway, if they could've avoided the beam-wars concept, he would've been great in that series.

Kawakita thought to much physical fighting was unrealistic, hence the reliance on beam wars.

As for Titanosaurus, it's a shame the only chance he had to shine was in a movie as busy as Terror of Mechagodzilla. But he's never left a big impression on me.

I couldn't give a good reason as to why I like him. You could say that "He's a throwback to T&C", but honestly, I think that when I was a kid I just thought he looked and sounded cool as hell.

Remember when Toho told Honda he'd never make another Godzilla film? Yeah I think that should have been saved for this guy instead. OK, a bit harsh but beams are only cool for so long, sometimes you just need an all out melee with your fights.

I thought it was Honda that told Toho he would never make another Godzilla movie. Anyway, I agree 100%. Kawakita's beam wars sucked. Heisei needed an old fashioned ass-kicking Godzilla.

Titanosaurus should make a comeback but not mind controlled just kicking along side Godzilla.

Titanosaurus is a pretty cool monster. His suit is one of the best suits I've seen in the Showa series. I like his design (especially his giraffe-like neck). I also like who he was used in the film, and how tragic it all ended for him.

Granted, ToMG if my favorite Godzilla film, so I think that might have something to do with my opinion of the monster.

Really like Titano. He's colorful, has a great war, and is very unique. He's also one of the physically strongest monsters I've ever seen. Great movie too. By the way, I liked the beam wars, but I just want to see a movie where there's a good balance between both beam fighting and some awesome physical brutality, with more of an animalistic touch.

Titanosaurus was a refreshing change from the wierd, freakish monsters of the 70's Godzilla movies. It was kind of like nostalgia, to me; seeing a giant two-legged tank firing an army's worth of firepower, then seeing a plain old dinosaur standing beside him, with only a webbed tail and teeth and claws to fight with. One would think he was out of place in that movie, but he just fit in perfectly for some reason.
