That's not the argument in my case and I was strictly addressing the issue of Mecha Godzilla being in the Legendary universe and how it didn't make sense.
The original post stated that some "knucklehead" would argue the reality of a giant robot Godzilla but it isn't as simple as that. Let's look at the scenarios.
1) The military/government finds a way to create giant robots like Pacific Rim. Why create a robot that is bulky, slow, and drags around a tail? Why not just create a jaeger/humanoid type robot that would be magnitudes more effective? Jet Jaguar would be a better addition in that instance.
2) The aliens create a robot. Why would it look like Godzilla? Did they just happen to land on Earth and think Godzilla was a perfect form to duplicate? Then looking at their creation and watching it move they'd probably think of point 1.
To be honest, other than an outdated cool factor, it's incredibly illogical and this coming from someone who loves Mecha Godzilla!
