Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, the second anime installment and sequel to last year's Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, opens in (a likely limited amount of) Japanese theaters this Friday. Though MechaGodzilla has been touted as Godzilla's adversary in the latest film, Toho has played coy with the age old mecha's appearance. Luckily, official images of MechaGodzilla's silhouette and advertisements give fans a better look at Godzilla's mechanical doppelganger:
Below is an ad for City on the Edge of Battle merchandise that shows off MechaGodzilla in the form of key chains and other memorabilia:
Gormaru Island has an even better look at the full design which you can see on their page.

I dig how "alien" this design is, especially since it's built by an alien race, but not as an exact doppelganger of Godzilla. I appreciate that the filmmakers are going in a different direction. My only concern is how it functionally works in the story:
ex: How do all the dorsal plates and all the pointy bits work for this? Are they aesthetic or functional?
I'm not a fan of this new Mecha-Godzilla design. It head looks more like an ant than a Lizard. Worst M.G. ever. I hope Godzilla smashes it up like 1975. Haven't seen Ready Player One yet but it's M.G looks sweet! Kiryu looked the best but I don't buy the oxygen destroyer could harm Godzilla so not a fan of its origins and no way it could win against the invincible millennium Godzilla. M.G.2 was awesome but harpoons would shatter on Godzilla's scales and electricity should only power him up. Rodan's death really pissed me off. The 70's is where it's at. The original M.G. was Beautiful and effective. Not a fan of the seeing Godzilla's blood, Toho biffed that but over all big G crushed that tin can well. Terror of M.G. is one of my favorites!
At first I wasn't sure about the design, but now I'm kinda digging it. I mean, it's not my favorite look for MechaGodzilla but it still looks pretty cool. I'm liking the alien skeletal design. I like this look more than the Ready Player One design honestly. I didn't like the arms on that one. They just didn't look right to me. In any case, I can't wait for this movie.
Ok, fine. I meant that Titanosaurus' roar is annoying.
And I do agree that 70's Mechagodzilla is the best. I just hope that they give this Mechagodzilla some weapon as an homage to the 70's one, maybe even disguising it as another Godzilla. Something similar to this:
I personally really like this iteration of the character.
It fits with the whole different directions that the Toho reboots have been taking with the franchise. Plus, it looks exactly as alien as an alien war robot made of Applied Phlebtonium would look like.
Titanosaurs rules! I felt bad for him through the whole film. He should have been on Godzilla's side but it's a great testament to the big G's power to be able to handle the two most powerful kaiju under the invincible King Ghidorah by himself. It's always nice to see Godzilla take on multiple foes and have it done right. They did us a solid on not killing the mighty Titanosaurs! We need Titanosaurs back and he needs to be indestructible and immortal! Don't bunk him over like they did to Manda a in Final Wars. That was very upsetting.
First, no, this is not spam. I'm just asking a question.
And second, am I the only one that knows about this? I found it on tohokingdom.com, and it says, "We are sad to report that actress Yuriko Hoshi has passed away today. Best known as one of the leads in Mothra vs. Godzilla(1964), The Last War (1961) and many other productions, Hoshi was an exceptional and talented actress who will be missed." Does anyone else know about this, or am I the first?
MinecraftDinoKaiju, Yes it is spam at this point. STOP posting the same thing over and over. If you have a question, use the forum for an original topic. Do not post the same thing repeatedly on multiple articles. There's no point. You've been warned.
