For the discussion of Toho produced and distributed films or shows released from 1999 to 2015.

Would you have liked the early concept desgin to be used instead?

Yes. It looks way better then Ratzilla.

No, they both look bad but Ratzilla less so.

That design looks like complete and utter ass. They just stuck a bunch of dumb looking poop all over a standard Godzilla look.

As some grotesque mutant/clone/whatever variation, then I'd be game. But as "THE" Godzilla? skreeonk off.

Why would they even consider doing something like that? I know you have to beef up the character every once in a while, but this? Way too drastic for me.

Well, if you think about it, this design would have looked better walking around to the heavy metal in some of the fight scenes in Final Wars.

Kitamura mentioned how he wanted Godzilla to eat people from trains in very very early talks for his Godzilla film, I guess maybe he was trying to out evil GMK Godzilla?

That actually does look like a design Rob Liefeld or Todd McFarlene or some other artist from bullshit nineties comics would cook up.

Hm. That's...interesting. Sounds pretty ridiculous though.

(Good thing I have no influence on Godzilla stories/designs, cuz fans would probably hate my guts)

I personally love the original concept designs. Especially the crazy-looking demon/gorgo/spiky skele-zilla design. What's not to like?

Of course, thinking realistically, the design we have now is the smart way to go.

You want me to tell you the truth?

We're celebrating the fiftieth anniversary, so I would've gone with a recreation of the original 1954 design.
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.
I'll always miss Vega.

The "Spacegodzilla School" of design should stay exclusively with Spacegodzilla. Hey, lets glue a bunch of random, barely relevant tacky poop over an already fine and iconic look to make it fresh for the sake of making it fresh! Everything about the design just screams desperate attempt to darken and gritty up Godzilla.

That was to answer my question, right?

Just wondering, because I never said anything relating to those entire two sentences. I just said it looked cool, imo.

You asked "What's not to like?"

I explained that it's tacky and excessive is what not to like about it.

Okay. I was just wondering if you were answering my question, or just bashing me for liking the design.

Sorry.

To be honest, I'm surprised nearly a third of the votes are in favor of this design for Godzilla instead of FW Godzilla's suit.

I'm not. We have fans who think GINO is the better "Godzilla". Shudder.

What? Who? These blasphemous fools should no longer be allowed to live. :evil:

To correct what I said earlier, I do like the design, but not for Godzilla. It would make a cool opponent, or whatever, but not Godzilla. I'm glad they didn't decide on it.

Love the design, personally, but not for Godzilla. It's too excessive.

If you push in the nose a little, it would make an interesting redesign for Gabara. With all the knobs and stuff all over the body, it kind of looks like him anyway.

Agreed. Draconic, very different from what we've seen in recent years, and it brings things full circle.
