Apparently, this is the new GODZILLA in the upcoming latest reboot attempt. It looks kinda cool... its better than that piece of shit Emmerch abomination that I don't acknowledge.... but as a Godzilla Fan, this new design doesn't thrill me.

To uber-nerd out, here are my whiny complaints:

1) Godzilla is dark GREEN, not brown & tan.
2) I miss the classic Godzilla skin texture!
3) There's too many spikes all over (arms & legs), which effect the overall design.
4) The needle teeth make him appear to ravenous.
5) He doesn't look iconic. Godzilla's silhoutte should be unmistakable.
Overall, its not terrible - I'm just a bit picky. What's cool is that he's thick and looks like he could brawl with the best of them on Monster Island. I do hope they'll keep Godzilla in JAPAN.

To get uber uber nerdy, Godzilla was actually not green for decades on film and never originally intended to be as such.

From Wikipedia: "Godzilla was originally believed by many to be green when the original black and white film was produced, and promotional artwork in America and other English speaking countries depicted him as such. The creature was also depicted as being green in the Hanna-Barbera cartoon and a number of toys in the United States prior to the Trendmasters toy line, which depicted Godzilla in his actual coloration. Godzilla actually has a greenish hue in Godzilla 2000 and again in Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, but returns to his classic charcoal gray in subsequent films in the Millennium series starting with Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack."

...more importantly, what gym does Godzilla go to, 'cause THAT dude is STACKED!

I have to agree with all your points Jim and Anonymous you´re right. That biceps looks just silly and has no meaning at all. Why should the arm of Godzilla has the exact features of a human arm???

Are you sure this is the actual design? I had read somewhere else this was not actually for the film.

Jim said...

ah, INTERESTING! about the original coloring. I don't mind him being Gray... the brown in this picture does bug me.... Gray just doesnt feel... Godzilla.

Timewaster - so this isn't the actual design?

That Godzilla Statue is sweet, i want one,..and yea, it is a little picky, But i hope they go more with the Original design and not the "EXTREME!!!!/Steroid"concept

ps,..did they really design him with 'Lat's",..seriously concept guys, go look at some comparative anatomy...( i'm guessing he has a six pack too)

Jim said...

I haven't found any further info as to whether or not this pic is in fact an official pic....

And just to clarify... while JIMSMASH! is always a bit tongue-in-cheek, this post (and the Lego Arrival of the Emperor) is especially so. I'm not griping that hard here... merely having fun uber-nerding out on it :)

I had no idea they were going to reboot the series! Awesome news and I have a dozen Godzilla flicks on DVD. My favorite design is the one from Godzilla 1985.

This is the official (but already done for the 2010 Comic-con) released by Legendary studio

And Godzilla is announced to appear in CG form.
