Tokyo Comic Con provided a monstrous panel for Godzilla: King of the Monsters and director Michael Dougherty. While new S.H. MonsterArts figures for the upcoming film were revealed, the event also gave fans a lot more to chew on!

As Toho has done with the last two live action movies, and the anime trilogy, a new statue representing Godzilla's updated design was unveiled to the public. Of Godzilla's updates Dougherty said,

"These spikes come from the 1954 version. And I made his feet a little bit bigger--He needed bigger claws. Godzilla's spikes are his crown, so they needed to be big."

The 2014 Godzilla design received criticism from some fans for the decidedly elephantine feet and lack of traditional, maple-leaf shaped spikes. But Godzilla's "crown" has definitely returned for the 2019 film. You can see it represented in the new statue below:



Here are all of the Godzilla statues released over the last few years together:

Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler (Super 8, Friday Night Lights), Vera Farmiga (The Departed), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), O'Shea Jackson (Straight Outta Compton), Aisha Hinds (If I Stay), Anthony Ramos (Hamilton), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Randy Havens (Stranger Things), Ken Watanabe, (Godzilla), Sally Hawkins (Godzilla), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Bradley Whitford (Get Out, West Wing) and Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). The film will be directed by Michael Dougherty from his screenplay co-written by Zach Shields. Alex Garcia is producing.

The film bows May 31st, 2019.

Best design since Godzilla 2000. I love the plates, still cringe at the gills but the rest looks AWESOME!!! Godzilla 2019 makes shin and Earth look like ****! Grow plates like Godzilla 2000 to fight Kong and KICK THE DEMI-KING'S ASS!!!! Please be nice to Lord Ghidorah and Rodan.

I never thought about it but it's true, Godzilla's dorsal plates are his crown. Godzilla looks absolutely fantastic. I like how the gils blend in better to the rest of his body. But what happened to the end of his tail? It rounded off for some reason. That minor grievance aside, I'm very pleased with how Godzilla turned out. I can't wait to see him fight.

Now that is a Godzilla design! I love the redesign of the spikes, hands, feet, teeth, eyes, and the general slimming of his figure. What an improvement over 2014.

Agreed - I am a big fan of the changes made to Godzilla's design, specifically to his dorsal spines. He looks thicker as well.

He looks like a beast... ready to kill. Like a bear in a manner of speaking. It's a great design. Needs bigger teeth...  but over all it's an improvement from the first.

in my opinion... TOHO has got to be loving this because this version of Godzilla is ginning up interest everywhere and Ghidorah, Rodan and Mothra are finally gonna get the Hollywood treatment which is way over due.

Long live the monsterverse.
