Which Gigan Monster Design Is Best?
Posted Jan-30-2013 9:57 PM
Gigan is one of Godzilla's most memorable foes. A Cyborg Alien equipped with scythes for hands and a buzz-saw on his front, Gigan is a formidable enemy. Gigan can also fly and teleport and shoot energy from its one eye.

Gigan goes through two upgrades throughout the film to try and stop Godzilla - which ultimately fails. But, I want to know which Gigan design YOU like best and why? Do you prefer the classic Gigan Monster? Or the [i]Final Wars[/i] remodel? If you chose the [i]Final Wars[/i] remodel, then which upgraded version of Gigan do you prefer? The Gigan with Scythe hands? or the Gigan with Dual-Chainsaws? Have another look at some of Gigan's versions below: [center] [img]http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_gjmQmqvVKng/R1DpCMyDmaI/AAAAAAAAABk/vb-WrfJg28s/s1600-R/gogogigan.jpg[/img] [img]http://firemonster2000.angelfire.com/godzilla/FinalWarsGigan.jpg[/img] [img]http://media.comicbookmovie.com/images/users/uploads/39115/Gigan_Modified.jpg[/img] [/center] Let us know below!

I agree. The buzz-saw hands were a bit much, but I'm unsure about which Gigan version I prefer. I've always been a huge fan of the classic, but the [i]Final Wars[/i] Gigan definitely looked badass. It's a tough call for sure. I'm still not sure.

i like the first version of gigan from final wars because he has the basic look of gigan but with some cool body features added. i didnt like the chaisaws added in his up graded form and while i like the original he doesnt look as cool as the second one.

All of the versions have their plus and minuses, I can't tell. Gigan always was a horrid threat, in my opinion, because it seems like a kaiju designed specifically to kill other kaiju. It's a walking circular saw with grappling hooks all over it. I shudder to think if they ever did an R rated Godzilla vs Gigan movie. But the monster itself looks better in Final Wars, however the designers forgot to make sure it looks like a monster and not a big human in a space suit. The problems I've always had with Gigan were things like the head isn't very monstrous, it looks more like a bird...and there's no believable way this kaiju flies, the wings are too much like fins. Not to mention that the hooks on its hands, and the dual chainsaws, were ridiculously too big and clumsy.
