Rodan looks good. A more classic Toho head, but with a more LP/MV body style. I expect that's going to be common from now on as they move away from suitmation.

I'm now convinced, Toho should use these design and do a soft remake of Monster Zero.

Ghidorah arrives on Earth and the only defense is Godzilla who hasn't been seen since 54 and Rodan who also perished in 56.

Now I kind of wish they'd made a Mothra design for this too...

I need that in my life. Mothra please!! Her design would be interesting given the others for the ride. Maybe round out the big 5 with Mecha-G, but that may be pushing it.

I could see these designs working very well in suit format should they choose to go that route.

I mean Godzilla could work as a suit maybe, but the way Ghidorah moved and Rodan's more animalistic torso and proportions, I can't see them working as suits without losing something.

I could see it working like Creataceous King Ghidorah, running forward and attacking.

Ghidorah's heads are the only thing I'm not liking here. They look off and unglamorous in the chase scene.

I don't know, I feel like the running on four limbs aspect that's unique to this Ghidorah (and that speed!) is very important to that version of Ghidorah, and that'd be extremely hard if not impossible to pull off with a suit.

I enjoy the ride kaiju designs so far. Hope we see something similar in a future movie/tv show/ toyline.

I need it! I really hope Toho uses these designs for something outside of the ride, especially the Godzilla design! Is it crazy to say it's one of my new favorite Godzila designs already? It's such a good combination of the Heisei and Legendary appearances.

Best kaiju game ever. Like, seriously, awesome to play and full of cool little nods to the films that make it up. Ten out of ten. Worth waiting for.

When the teaser for the ride came out, I wasn’t that much of a fan of the design, but now I actually like the design. Probably one of the best Reiwa designs yet

It's basically GMK Godzilla with Legendary armor and color scheme. I love it.

I also have a feeling we'll never see a suited Godzilla movie again. The concepts are to grand in scale to force someone to act in a suit. When in reality CGI costs less and is more humane.

I mean seriously. Would you want to be trapped in a sweaty suit fighting another guy in a sweaty suit for hours?

I'm pretty sure that it does not, especially in Japan, where hundreds of hours of man-in-suit footage is still shot each year for television.

Yes.

Come on, man, the chance to play Godzilla in a feature film? Sign me the hell up! That's the stuff childhood dreams are made of. :P

I'll second this, it's always been a dream of mine! Tokusatsu blended with CGI is what I'd like to see them do moving forward. A lot of the recent Ultraman movies and shows look fantastic, I'm sure Toho could make a movie that looks as good if not better.

The cgi in Shin Godzilla was fine. Just a little bit more to clean up and it’ll be fine. A mix of cgi and suit/miniatures can work.

Godzilla looks really good in this.

While many of us love toku - I doubt we're getting a non-fully CGI Godzilla again. And I'm okay with that.

Found this on Wikizilla - another *glimpse* at Rodan on some merch.

Image

I really want to see Rodan in full, the design has potential but its hard to judge clearly. More pics would be nice... but footage may be even better. ;)

Someone enhanced the newspaper picture and Rodan has two lower rows of horns.
