Alternative Mechagodzilla Designs
So far we've only seen a handful of Mechagodzilla designs surface from Godzilla vs. Kong, but the official art book has several radically alternative designs for us to scrutinize!
In the book director Adam Wingard reveals that originally Mechagodzilla was controlled completely by a psionic uplink, so he had a pilot throughout the entire movie. Wingard was leaning towards the pilot-in-mech approach but later decided it was more exciting if Mechagodzilla developed its own personality, which pushed them towards the A.I. element we eventually got on screen.
The following are a variety of alternative head and body designs:
These other designs give Mechagodzilla an extremely bulky appearance, more inline with a Godzilla-clone than the slender Terminator-style we saw on screen:
Here's an excerpt from the book outlining the various details present in Mechagodzilla's design as well as how he differs from his organic rival:
The book is packed tight with a plethora of exciting information and beautiful imagery. This book is truly a must-have for any Godzilla enthusiast!
