Bingo. The model Tyler posted does a good job of showing what could have been, IMO.
Final-Goji: fans seem pretty split on this design. Many like it, many dislike it, and many are somewhere in-between. I'm one of those between-ers. It's good, but in many aspects not as could as it could have been. The face is one of those aspects. I'm guessing the designers were aiming for a look similar to Mosu-Goji: sullen and resentful, a character who would rather be left in peace, but won't hesitate to punish those who provoke him. Unfortunately, Final-Goji's head was designed so that the eyes are almost completely hidden, which impairs the expressions & emotions that were meant to be conveyed.
As an interesting side note, the Shinzen model
(posted many times before by myself and others) seems to have completely changed personality by exposing the eyes. This
Godzilla looks more akin to the Heisei Godzilla: a kaiju who's very aware of his strength, and enjoys flaunting it. His
face says, "You wanna fight? COME AND GET IT
Have I mentioned how remarkable the subtleties in design are?
