Which Godzilla suit is better Tokyo SOS or Final Wars

Postby kaiju115 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:05 pm

I didn't see anyone mention this, so I figured I might as well do it my self. So which Godzilla suit do you think looks better? Tokyo SOS or Final Wars? For me, I would probably go with the Tokyo SOS suit. But I'm letting all of you decide which one you think is cooler.

This seems like a really arbitraty comparison. Why compare these two? Outside of them both being Millennium suits, they don't really have any sort of connection.

Also, FW suit. the Tokyo SOS suit is just awkward looking to watch twist around. FW suit has a simplistic charm, much like the GMK suit. It reminds me of a sort of modern Soshingeki ('68/DAM) design.

It's interesting that these are the two Millennium suits that I don't care for the head on. Anyhow, I'll take the GFW suit. It's lighter, sleeker, and allows for Godzilla to move for naturally as well as appear more realistic (the Kiryu saga suit can move kinda artificially and give away its faux nature). It is also superior for use in physical combat, something the suits haven't been able to pull off that effectively since the 70s.

Both suits are pretty good, improving on previous suits.

Kiryu-Goji is basically Mire-Goji without the "extreme" style, and like that former Goji, portrays a more animalistic kaiju.

Final-Goji takes the Heisei design, slims it down, proportions it properly, and makes it way more flexible. Personality-wise, I think this Goji is comparable to the '60s Goji.

Of course, each suit also has its flaws. Kiryu-Goji may be the most inflexible suit to date,. Final-Goji has the worst dorsal spines ever, an iffy head design, and looks a bit too skinny. Both suits also have a slight "pinhead" appearance to them.

I personally love the SOS suit. The eyes remind me of the '84 Godzilla suit except placed better. It was also nice combo of the heisei and g2k designs.

The Final Wars suit, I think, would've looked more appropriate for any entry other than his 50th birthday movie. It's too slim, none too menacing and the face really needed work. If it was a 'super hero' Godzilla akin to the 70s films (which I heard was Kitamura's favorite era for G movies) then it would've been more appropriate.

i like FW Godzilla's overall design better. However, SOS Godzilla has better looking dorsal spikes and his scaly hide is more saurian. I've long forgiven SOS Goji for his "Gonzo Mug".

Thats one of the main reasons I like the Tokyo SOS suit better, the dorsal spines are more intimidating, and he looks more saurian. Then again I like the Final Wars suit as well.

I like both but more SOS since he looks more like a Dinosaur and his Spikes look better, his eyes sometimes look bad in some shoots
but overall i prefer him.

What "best parts" are you referring to?

Final War's all the way.... sure it wasn't perfect an the spines were to small but i absolutely hated the Design for S.O.S.

I actually didn't really like any of the designs from this era but GMK an Final War's.

It's been awhile since I last saw the film, but I remember not being a fan of the Tokyo SOS suit. Anyways, gotta go with Final Wars on this.

I know a lot of people make fun of the Kiryu-goji suit because of the Gonzo face, but on Tokyo SOS, the snout of the suit looked a bit better, it didn't look as curved downward as it did in Godzilla x Mechagodzilla.

I think I'm gonna go with the Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. suit, but the Godzilla Final Wars design is my close second favorite design of the Millennium Series.

I'm with Legion here. Mire-Goji was decent, but it's a little too extreme in my opinion.



Key words there. MY opinion.

Why are the two being compared in the first place?

I like elements of both, but the Final-Goji just looks off to me. I just don't dig the head design, or "sleek" look.

The Kiryu-Goji has a funny face and all, but I've warmed up to it a lot over the past decade. The overall mass, lack of purple back plates, and the loss of the ridiculous looking mouth from the Mire-Goji were all pluses in my book. Definitely my favorite Millennium design after the Oni-Goji (GMK).
