That's the smallest a main kaiju has been ever. That's smaller than the male MUTO. I was really hoping they wouldn't go the Heisei Rodan "small but fast" route and instead make him a huge physical powerhouse like Showa Rodan, able to take on Godzilla head-on. But, oh well. Maybe, with any luck, it'll be a case of the official stats not matching up with what's presented on screen, like Gorosaurus in Destroy All Monsters.
Keep in mind that the measurement is a kaiju's height off the ground
. Mothra, crawling on its belly, is only measured at 50 ft off the ground. So if Rodan is a wing walker, for example, and hunched over because of it, then his actual size is going to be depressed by that measurement.Added in 8 minutes 59 seconds:
Also, that's totally neat -- I forgot about magma turtle! A smaller Rodan would fit right into the fauna of Skull Island, wouldn't he?
