It doesn't look that bad when viewed overall. The closeups, however, can be as you describe. I can definately say if you don't like this suit, try to avoid KKE.

Yeah, as bad as the KKvG Kong suit is, it's skreeonking Peter Jackson's Kong compared to the KKE suit

I honestly think the KKE suit looks better. At least he looks intimidating and his face doesn't look like a squished grape with wooden teeth and eyes glued on. :lol:

I consider Godzilla's roar in Battle For The Earth after Battra saves Mothra from the ferris wheel to be the absolute best roar in the franchise.
So then Worf suddenly has a purple space bazooka...

Can I find this specific roar on Youtube? I must inspect it for myself.

You it'd be cool to see King Kong with a ball and chain. Like some villain tried to restrain him but he broke free and now has this big ass metal ball as a weapon.

Wouldn't that basically be a rehash of the Propeller but it's blunt?

I myself would like to see him actually pick up and use the Empire State as an oversized spear or at least break off a part of it to use it like a weapon.

Breaking off a piece would be a lot more likely. It'd take a Kong at least the size of anime Godzilla to pick up the entire Empire State Building.

The Trilobite in 1954 was incredibly irradiated.

The Shockirus in 1984 were sea louses that fed off Godzilla's energy and DNA and mutated.

One of my favorite minor things in the IDW comics was the Strange Bird from Godzilla Legends 5.
Actually, it's "lice", not "louses".

All of this reminds me of something that I saw in Dark Horse Comics #11 a long time ago. A gull that's standing on one of Godzilla's back plates while he's unconscious in the ocean over the slab gets killed in a brief flash of blue glowing radiation before he awakens.

I always remember Godzilla 1954 has ears, but I almost always forget he has very pronounced fangs.

In the Italian poster, those fangs are quite prominent.

I never understood why Toho was so anal about Godzilla having four fingers

Does anyone? Far as we're concerned that policy could be long gone by now. It was last in full affect back in the Heisei era,so maybe the new WOG series can give us one with three or five fingers.

The repercussions of a five fingered Godzilla would be really creepy

It's definitely one of those things that you just never notice because no one points it out. I know there's like Godzilla's with 3 and four toes though.

When making the stipulations of Godzilla's design in 1998, Toho said Godzilla absolutely had to have four fingers
