At the beginning of the week a promotional statue of the 2017 Godzilla was teased for fans. Twitter recently exploded with multiple angles of the full reveal.
The Godzilla of the upcoming anime movie Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters first appears in the year 2030. Humanity had been at war with monsters since 1999, as a result of Earth's evolving environment, but they had never met a force like Godzilla. SciFi Japan reports that Godzilla is, "the largest life form ever recorded and possesses unique body tissue integrated with metal-like muscle fibers, which can generate a strong electromagnetic charge, to support his massive weight. The end result of natural selection on Earth, he originated from plant-based life and has gone on to survive 20,000 long years as a super-evolved living organism." No word yet on if radioactivity will factor in to Godzilla's origin as well.
Below are images of the 2 meter tall statue, emphasizing the plant-influenced design:

Radioactive material in the past allows plant life to evolve past its roots (pardon the pun) into something more akin to actual animals, culminating in the most powerful living organism ever to walk the Earth.
Love how Godzilla is evolved from Plant life, a very unique origin. In general I love how this Godzilla is literally the ultimate organism as it even puts "The end result of Natural Selection on Earth".
I like how they make him look seriously ancient! Like an old man. Not sure how I like the originating from plant idea instead of the nuclear bomb test idea, but I'll go for a ride on this one. Im sure ill still enjoy it.
This just hit me, I think I love the symbolism about Godzilla's Dorsal fins looking like leaves. Leaves must change color and fall every year. Thus creating a new season, a new life to emerge soon there after. Godzilla's dorsal fins represent change, not to just Godzilla but to the story. To his origin in order to give way a new life of Godzilla fandom. Damn, I don't know if they meant to do that or not, but that could be interpreted to be deep for fans to just enjoy the ride.
Im just confused as to why they had to change his origin like this? I guess to make this story have flight. I'm going to keep an open mind.
Other people on line are giving this new look a ripping. They are saying pretty negative things about this new look. I agree he looks like an old man, but for this plot that's not a bad thing. Hugh Jackman looked like an old man in the Logan movie and people loved that.
They said he was taller than Shin and the Anime description says he's the largest lifeform ever recorded so really big. I'm guessing somewhere in the 800 foot region but for all we know he could be in the thousands.
