Monarch probably thought that counting Methuselah's back didn't make any sense and only counted the main parts of his body when they measured him. They didn't measure Godzilla's dorsal plates when they tried to find his height, why would they do that now?

I’m assuming they measured Godzilla’s height when he standing fully upright, which he’s shown capable of doing such as with Hawaii or Antarctica entrances.

I prayed Sandra wouldn’t catch a whiff, talk about Endgame....just gross.

I like how some of the fan comments state "fact" only for Dougherty to say "nah", its pretty great.
Check out my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/atxspider/

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

Aw sweet! Wonder what she looks like. I remember before the film came out someone said there was a "Lion Titan with golden fur and ox horns".

Hybrid Network's Titan videos are clickbait trash and no-one should state them as fact.

Oh that's where it came from? Yeah that ain't accurate.

Minor complaint here, really nothing big. Not even a complaint really, just something that popped in my head. But does anyone else kind of wish that Dougherty and the crew tweaked the names a little more, to make them a little more unique?

Toho has traditionally named their monsters by spinning and twisting around their influences: Gojira (Gorira + Kujira), Ghidorah (taken from Hydra), Rodan (taken from Pteranodon and possible radon), Mothra (mosu = moth). So I was thinking that I might have actually preferred these titans names derivatives of the monsters that they're actually named after. Like instead of calling him Behemoth, they call him Behedon or something, mixing Behemoth and Mastadon. Just a thought. Like I said, it's nothing to lose sleep over, it just popped in my head.

Plus with some of these monsters, it can be hard to tell what is actually part of their body and what's just stuff that accumulated on their body over centuries of sleeping.

I do wish they did put more effort into the names but I'm bad at coming up with original names so who am I to judge?

Full reveal for Behemoth like with the Queen Muto before. We can expect ones for the other two eventually.

Definitely nice to get a look at the render- still of the opinion that Behemoth has the best design out of all the original Titans. I just love the Pleistocene inspirations on him, feels like a fresh take on the "prehistoric hybrid monster" type. Looking forward to Methuselah's render, getting a clearer look at him would be especially great.

Also, the chains and cuffs concept sounds like it would have looked badass. I can definitely buy the idea that the more resourceful ancient civilizations in this universe would try to take some of the less dangerous Titans and turn them into gigantic warbeasts.

I'm gonna have to be honest with y'all, Methuselah's concept art looks way better than what we actually got.
