Anguirus and Baragon are just hideous. I wouldn't know that was suppose to be Anguirus if it wasn't labelled. Baragon's recognizable at least, but what the hell is he suppose to be? Some sort of nightmarish reptilian rabbit? He's ugly in a totally unlikable way.
Rodan and Gorosaurus are just awkwardly proportioned. Their heads are enormous. I'm pretty sure they would just fall on their faces if they tried to move.
Manda as a fish rather than a snake/serpent/dragon is an interesting idea. Adding the leafy sea dragon bits ruins it for me though. He looses that lithe, sinuous look. Maybe a full catfish/eel version could work though.
I actually like Biollante, Mothra, and Gyaos. It's cool that you can recognize specific plants on Bio instead of her just being a generic mass of vines. Mothra breaks the plain ol' moth look without being crazy extreme, and the feet look like they could be nasty weapons. Gyaos reminds me of Bat Gremlin. His crests look just like Gremlin ears. I love it, the resemblance is oddly fitting.
This. I think if done right,a paleontological aspect of the Godzilla kaiju would look pretty cool,but in the case of the designs i posted,the only ones i find actually pretty cool were Gyaos and Mothra, simply because.as HayesAJones mentioned, he really reminds me of the Bat Gremlin. Mothra in her design actually looks like a realistic moth.
But the others? I can kinda see where he was going with Anguirus,but the head and tail imo bastardize the design into one of those old-school glued-on-fin lizards. Baragon...damn what the hell happened here? im sure a paleontologist probably would have gone the ceratopsian route,but we get this armadillo/rabbit lovechild from hell instead. With Manda,personally I'd have gone the serpent route, simply because the fossil record has some pretty big snakes(ex. Titanoboa),so marine version would be possible,albeit an archaic version thats still have legs.
Hayes,you pretty much hit the nail on the head with Rodan and Gorosaurus.Goro's design kinda gets to me more,because its one thing to have a large head,but another when the head is the same size as the midsection.
