Has the official design for Rodan from Godzilla: King of the Monsters leaked early?! Many are thinking so, after a photo hit the internet last night claiming to be that of a Rodan maquette for the upcoming Godzilla sequel. The original user who shared the photo to Facebook has since deleted their account along with the original image. Following that, the image was then shared to Twitter by @GeekLifeSociety, who just opened up a new account after their last one was deleted as well - conveniently after they shared the leaked Rodan picture. Coincidence?

Regardless of the shady account deletions, we are urging readers to take the following with a large grain of salt, as no one close to production has officially confirmed the authenticity of the image yet. If it does prove to be accurate however, we'll be sure to keep you updated. In the meantime, have a look for yourself and let us know what you think:

If real, do you think this is a proper portrayal of Rodan? Let us know in the comments section below!

Missing the underbelly spikes, can't see the tail. Face looks alright legs are a bit small and the scales and wings look great and acceptably new. Over all pretty cool. Can't complain but where are the trademark belly thorns?

BaragonMember222 XPJul-14-2018 6:16 AM

Second look the face is pretty awesome but I hope he has a tail


TitanosaurusMember567 XPJul-14-2018 8:08 AM

Looks more like an eagle than a pterodactyl.


TitanosaurusMember567 XPJul-14-2018 8:08 AM

Looks more like an eagle than a pterodactyl.

Hope it's not. Other than the face, I'm not really feeling the rest.


GiganModerator3811 XPJul-14-2018 9:14 AM

This design looks great if it is what they ended up going with. I really like the detail in the face, and the sleeker stomach is a nice new addition. the back and wings look great as-well.


TitanosaurusMember934 XPJul-14-2018 12:46 PM

If this is real, then I would be fine with it.


TitanosaurusMember926 XPJul-14-2018 1:14 PM

I would be ok if this was real. I really like the face. I just hope he has 2 horns on his head like in the Showa and Millennium designs. I wasn't crazy about the 3 horns of the Heisei Rodan.


Mothra LarvaeMember54 XPJul-14-2018 1:16 PM

Honestly, it's pretty cool, but I hope it's not real. I'll be more excited if Rodan looks more like a pterosaur than a bird


TitanosaurusMember968 XPJul-14-2018 2:30 PM

godzilla3580 Same here.

The Legend of Brian

BaragonMember262 XPJul-14-2018 5:41 PM

I'm digging the bird of prey look here. It's something different for the character, but it keeps the same general idea. I won't be heartbroken if it's fake though.

I Meme Everything

GiganMember4115 XPJul-14-2018 6:02 PM

God this looks awesome.


Mothra LarvaeMember29 XPJul-15-2018 6:35 AM

That thing looks more like a ZU from final fantasy


Mothra LarvaeMember75 XPJul-15-2018 1:34 PM

I'm gonna wait for the reveal of the entire body rather than just a singular pose of it that crops much of the model to make my assessment of it, but I will say that (if this is a true leak) I would be glad they did not go full Pterosaur and make Rodan unrecognizable. Rodan was always a mix of bird and pterosaur in design and this design is certainly representative of that.


Mothra LarvaeMember77 XPJul-15-2018 2:51 PM

Now where is king ghidorah!


TitanosaurusMember567 XPJul-17-2018 8:31 AM

Well, at least now we know for certain where rodan is.



TitanosaurusMember667 XPJul-17-2018 5:33 PM

Hate this. He looks like a vulture. Not happy if this is anything close to what rodan looks like. He’s not a bird, he’s a pterodactyl. I would take the hiesie version over this. Don’t get me wrong. It looks cool for another monster just not rodan. 


TitanosaurusMember968 XPJul-17-2018 10:19 PM

riggzamortis86 Well then, who does it look good for?

"It looks cool for another monster just not rodan."


TitanosaurusMember567 XPJul-18-2018 12:10 AM


maybe "the giant claw"? I mean, this design does look like a battleship to me.


TitanosaurusMember667 XPJul-21-2018 9:24 AM

^thats exactly what I would say. Haha!

point is that this design looks good for any other type of flying of monster with any other name. But Rodan isn’t a bird. He’s a flying reptile. No feathers. Rodan should look like a pterodactyl. Not a vulture. 


TitanosaurusMember567 XPJul-21-2018 9:44 AM


exactly and I think he won't have those feathery wings in the final movie. If you look at the picture from the monarch sciences website (the one that looks like a satellite scan) does not have the same wings as this supposed leaked one.

I know it looks like he has feathery wings in the ancient picture drawing, but that is probably an artistic choice to make the drawing look more interesting and accurate to how ancient people used to draw.
