Because he’s so damn cool. Showa has this funk, jazz and element of straight up badassery that no other Mech in the franchise has. I can give some examples if you wish, but I’d rather not have to post them unless you want me to, I’m lazy.Jermobooka wrote: ↑Sun Apr 11, 2021 5:12 pmQuestion. Why does everyone love Showa MG damn much? Don’t get me wrong, I really like Showa. Currently my second favorite MG design/incarnation but...what’s the big draw that makes it so much better than the others? I honestly don’t get it lolVoyager wrote: ↑Sun Apr 11, 2021 12:56 am Showa MG (especially ‘75) is the peak of Mechas in the Godzilla pantheon. He makes all other MGs look like total chumps. MG Heisei is literally a silver, blander Heisei Godzilla, Kiryu is fine, but looks like Godzilla in armour, as Keizer said, Anime MG is a clusterskreeonk, RPO MG is the most safe, boring thing yet, and MV MG is just metal Godzilla with disgusting arms.
By original, I really mean in the Godzilla franchise. Can you really call anything original if you take outside subjects? Ghidorah? Nah bro, Orochi did it first, therefore, bad design._JNavs_ wrote: ↑Sun Apr 11, 2021 2:47 pmShredder originated in TMNT #1 way back when, and Metroplex came out in Transformers back in the 80s. So no, Anime MG is not original at all.
MV MG is the first time we're getting Ghidorah piloting Mechagodzilla, first time we have a kaiju with arms that are long enough to actually knock Godzilla on his ass and drag him around repeatedly. It also functions how a human made mech would, janky, towered, and propulsion based.
Now to your other paragraph.
1. Ok sure, I’ll give you that... halfly. It’s similar to Kiryu being piloted by the soul of Godzilla when it’s enraged.
2. Orga, but he never used those arms, and MUTO, but you know, kinda hard to grab without fingers.
3. Uhh, sure? Kinda seems like Pacific Rim to me.
