I'll echo what most others say. It's a strong design, but the face doesn't do it for me. It's the closest we've gotten to a "normal" Godzilla since Final Wars (Or Sunset 2), so I like that. But the funky lower jaw and cataract eyes arent it for me

It is mostly Spider-Man themed, but I'd love to talk cosplay, lightsaber commissions, and countless other topics.

I just don't see why I can't judge it by it's appearance. I may like his actions in the film and it may be cool as hell but I'm still going to find the design just doesn't look good and probably even hate it more if he is as bad ass because then Ima be pissed his design doesn't match his actions.

There's a bunch of Godzillas that look incredibly awkward or weird depending on the angle. Depending on what they are going for, and how the monster is portrayed is just as relevant. For example, if Godzilla Ultima was intended to be a Showa-era hero, I'd say the design sucks. However, there's something ever so "off" about the design, that makes me mildly uncomfortable. That maw is certainly more monstrous and off-putting than a lot of your standard dinosaur designs. It's similar to why I like the Shin design, and it's also important to see how it functions in film.

Remember, a lot of us were complaining about Shin's split-jaw at first, and then the scene that has him split his jaw was one of the most epic Godzilla scenes in history. Does the snake with his jaw dislocated thing look ridiculous out of context? You better believe it does. But in context? If they back that up with a scene on par with Shin's laser breath? That's why I'm taking a wait and see approach. I've been wrong before, this time I'm giving Toho the benefit of the doubt. Let's see how this Godzilla actually uses that super wide/tall maw of his...

Y'all can wait to judge it that's fine, I don't like it's design and that's about it. If he does use his jaw or whatever in a cool manner then that particular scene will be viewed as great but won't change the fact *to me personally* his design sucks. Shin sucks for me it's still a dumb design but the breathe scene did look cool but what was the point of his jaw splitting open could have had the same effect if it didn't.

I like it enough, but the other SP designs I feel work better from what we've seen. It feels like it's trying to do what Shin did with the proportions but not quite sticking the landing this time. Shin executed it's weird proportions perfectly imo.

Really wish they had gone with the 2D art that they first showed off as far as the head design goes. Wish the bigger fangs felt more like fangs as far as placement and shape goes otherwise it's like a funky tooth mustache as far as it is on the current design.

I don’t like this design, at all. It just looks a bit edgy for my tastes.

I think that the shape of his jaw ruins it for me.

Personally, I'm not a fan of how big his thighs are. But other than that, I do like this Godzilla design.

I love it! It isn't perfect and the thighs are a tad too large but over all I like the very crocodile like head.

Definitely not among my favorites. His eyes are too close together and his jaw doesn't look attached to his skull in some positions. I know this probably comes from Shin's design, but I feel like it worked better there than with this one. The thigh proportions are also a little strange but seeing as Shin was like that too I don't have that much of an issue with it.

It's fine, but literally every other redesign in SP works much better.

I guess I may be the odd man out, but I freaking love this design. It is the perfect three-way blend of the ShinGoji, LegendaryGoji and the GyakushuGoji rolled into one and given a few unique characteristics of its own (blood red veins in the dorsal plates, the curved shape of the fangs, the snake-like jaw, the holes at the back of the throat, etc.). I'm a fan of all of it.

Plus, if I'm not mistaken, this is the first Godzilla to have fangs and bone-white dorsal plates since the Final Wars Godzilla.
