I borderline despise the idea of Shin becoming SpaceGodzilla, but I still would love to see a Shin-SpaceGodzilla nonetheless.

Also, that third picture is my favorite by far. Space G looks so badass there. :Spacegodzilla:

Can you explain why it doesn't appeal to you? Why is it any different than Godzilla essentially becoming Titanosaurus and Varan in Singular Point? If I were to guess, it's because you consider Shin perfection and doing anything else with him will be unnecessary tampering.

Because he doesn't become Titanosaurus or Varan. He mimics a similar appearance, an easter egg, but in the context of the show he is Godzilla and he's slowly turning into the classic silhouette we all know and love.

Revealing that Shin is actually SpaceGodzilla would mean Shin was never really Godzilla—which would be a gigantic slap in the face to essentially a modernized 1954 Godzilla. It would be bringing to life the one jab at Shin that I truly and genuinely hate:

"Shin is not Godzilla because he's ToO DIFfeReNT!"

A Shin SpaceGodzilla as a character on his own would be amazing, especially as an adversary for Shin Godzilla to fight. Even more especially if his film would be a character-driven film that could explore his and Godzilla's differing personas. But making Shin and Space G the same character would just kick the impact Shin Godzilla—as a film and as an incarnation of the character—had, right in the balls.

^G54 getting turned into Mechagodzilla back in 2002 didn’t take anything away from the original film didn’t it?

That was different. G54 had already died, and MechaGodzilla was simply built around his bones. His spirit still remained, and possessed the mech in a rare two moments. He was not alive. The original Godzilla was still dead (Ghost Godzilla is not a scrapped Kaiju, contrary to popular belief). He didn't really change into a new monster; a new mech was built around what remained of him (and even that was a retcon; going by the original film, his bones should've been destroyed). The original Godzilla was still the original Godzilla—something those who built Mecha G didn't realize.

MechaGodzilla and Godzilla (1954) may have been physically merged together, but they were two separate entities. One was just a mindless husk of metal, and the other was a spiritual consciousness that lay dormant within said husk, taking control once or twice. The same goes for MV MechaGodzilla.

Shin Godzilla physically transforming into SpaceGodzilla, on the other hand, would severely handicap the impact Shin Godzilla had as a film, in its revealing that all along the film was just a SpaceGodzilla origin story, and not a fresh, new yet unmistakably classic take on the King of the Monsters, and what life would really be like if he emerged in the modern world for the very first time.

^I personally apply the same logic to KG and Mecha KG.

Someone made a kid's drawing of Ultraman into a photorealistic painting and the results are pretty endearing, if not very weird.

Me too! Did you notice that it looks like Shin Manda's shedding his skin, just like a real snake does? You can see it behind his rear legs.

No, I'd missed that! It's a nice little detail.

A lot of these Shinifications rely too much on Shin Godzilla as a basis. Shin Ultraman redesigned the likes of Neronga, Gabora, Zarab, etc without making them look like mutated abominations. If you're going to make a Shin SpaceGodzilla, go for a more alien and otherworldly look.

Exactly Shin looks the way he does for a specific reason. It takes aspects that are already inherent to Godzilla and dials them up to eleven. The same would not apply to a Shin Rodan or Shin Mothra for example. For one Rodan is a 100% natural being. All the atomic testing did was allow air and water into the cavern allowing the eggs to hatch. Honestly Shin Rodan would probably look more like what we got in Singular Point.

Another thing I feel should be mentioned is that official Shin redesigns are often based on unused concept art from the character's debut. Godzilla has the head shape of the 1954 maquette, Ultraman is famously a near one-to-one copy of "Incarnation of Truth, Justice, and Beauty" by original designer Tohl Narita, and the 4D Ghidorah's body structure is similar to GtTHM concept art by Akira Watanabe. Combine that with the themes of the character (as quoted post says) and you have the perfect recipe for a Shin-style redesign.
