Since Ready Player One has released in theaters, G-fans were quick to notice Mechagodzilla's cameo appearance and today we have a piece of phenomenal concept artwork by Jared Krichevsky, which he created for the film. This Mechagodzilla design stands out as an alternative to the established variants from the Godzilla cinematic universe, but seems to most closely ressemble Mechagodzilla 2, with some slight callbacks to Kiryu from the film Godzilla against Mechagodzilla. Check out the artwork below and let us know what you think in the comments section!

Finally, an HD image. It looks great.

This version of Mecha-Godzilla kinda looks like a fusion of the Showa, and Millenium designs to me. 


MemberMothra LarvaeApr-28-2018 5:44 PM

eh, it's okay.


MemberMothra LarvaeApr-28-2018 5:44 PM

eh, it's okay.

I see the head of the Heisei MechaGodzilla, the body of the Showa MechaGodzilla, the mechanical details of the millennium MechaGodzilla and the shape of the 2014 Godzilla.

I really like this design


MemberTitanosaurusApr-29-2018 11:29 AM

Now this is the Mechagodzilla I was hoping for when I went to see Ready Player One, not a copy, paste, and redesign of G14. It is original and awesome. I like it (by like, I mean that I love it).

The concept artist has said that the design took some inspiration from Noriyoshi Ohrai's design for Mechagodzilla featured on the advance poster for Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. You can clearly see the influence in the arms.


MemberTitanosaurusApr-29-2018 2:43 PM

Still better than the one in the final film (Ready Player One, not Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. The one in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II is still awesome, even if I only ever saw the movie once before Hulu's Godzilla movie streaming rights expired.).

What's wrong with the final design? I like the final design, I mean yea sure its just metallic Legendary Godzilla but it also makes sense for it to look like Legendary Godzilla because.....uhm...uhh, ok I actually don't know why they base it on the Legendary Godzilla. Maybe because Legendary Godzilla is what western audiences are familiar with, that's just my guess, don't quote me on that.


MemberTitanosaurusApr-29-2018 4:27 PM

@The Jurassic Bootleg Too late. And btw, that is exactly why. Like you said, "ts just metallic Legendary Godzilla". That's why I don't like the design. You're welcome for the explanation, and for the following:

"What's wrong with the final design?

That is all. Thanks, and you're welcome.

The final design in the movie is almost exactly the same as that concept art, just darker in color. I don't get how the design in the movie itself is any more just a "metallic Legendary Godzilla" than the one in that concept art.

MemberBaragonApr-29-2018 4:50 PM

The final design is just metallic as the concept design.


MemberTitanosaurusApr-29-2018 4:52 PM

Because the tops of the dorsal plate in the concept art look like the three triangle-shaped tops we would expect Godzilla's dorsal plates to be like, whereas in the movie, the tops of the dorsal plates are just one triangle-shaped top, just like Legendary Godzilla's (And I should know, because I have box-art and the figure of the 6-inch Neca Godzilla to prove it.). Therefore, I think the concept art is better.

The Jurassic Bootleg

MemberBaragonApr-29-2018 5:20 PM

Still look exactly like the final design.


MemberTitanosaurusApr-29-2018 5:26 PM

@ The Jurassic Bootleg To me, this looks like an actual modernization to the Showa Mechagodzillas, but the one in the movie, again, and I quote, "like you said, 'its just metallic Legendary Godzilla'. That's why I don't like the design." That is the difference for me. You guys can have your opinions and disagree, but for me, I know a difference between designs when I see one.

The King of the Monsters

MemberBaragonApr-29-2018 5:30 PM

Legendary Godzilla has multiple points on his dorsal plates, they just typically have one larger central point. Godzilla's always had multiple points on his dorsal plates, the biggest difference is that the 2014 Godzilla's have fewer points which all point straight up, making them look more like broken glass than the typical maple leaf shaped. The Ready Player One Mechagodzilla has the same dorsal plate design as Godzilla 2014 in the concept art and in the movie itself. The only real discernible change made to Mechagodzilla's design in the film was that it was given a darker black coloration than the grayish color in the concept art.


MemberTitanosaurusApr-29-2018 5:52 PM

I knew it was something wrong, and it was the color with the lighting. It made it look like it was just a copy, not an original design. Now if the lighting was just like the one in the concept art (aka instead of a dark tone, it would be bright so that the design can actually be appealing [just like with G14 almost]). But they had to put him against a dark-ish background, and that was disappointing. Sorry for all the confusion I caused, but that is all from me.

The Jurassic Bootleg

MemberBaragonApr-29-2018 5:57 PM

I personally think the dark color made the design intimidating.


MemberTitanosaurusApr-29-2018 6:11 PM

@The Jurassic Bootleg Intimidating? Yes. Convincing? That depends on your opinion. And you can just look at my previous replies on this forum for mine. Again, that is all for me.
