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.

They're "freckles" according to my mother.

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.

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.

I think Titanosaurus is physically strong enough and has enough skill to give Godzilla a good fight alone, but definitely wouldn't win.

^ Yeah Titano could give Godzilla A Hell of a fight and maybe injure him a little but Dont Beat him.
Titano is The MAIN Monster Of TOMG (I Just Rewatched It Yesterday). He gets all of the Story around him until
Godzilla Gets Mentioned and Appears but he couldve given all of the Movie if it wasnt because of the Big-G.
