Rumor: Is this what the reboot Godzilla looks like?

[UPDATE: To clarify, this statue IS old, but that doesn’t change the fact that, if the rumor is true, it’s still meant as the base design for the film.]

Remember how Godzilla was being rebooted by Monters director Gareth Roberts? Yep, this might be what the big bastard looks like. Supposedly, the monster being created for the film, which will reportedly be a return to the old “man in a suit” style of ol’ Gojira, will be heavily based off of designs of sculptor Hector A. Arce, part of the design team for the film. This sculpture, which you can see in greater detail in the gallery below, represents the sum of his efforts on the film.

I really, REALLY like this. It’s just true enough to the original to keep the purist in me happy, but it also looks like a f**king awesome giant monster that’s gonna go ape all over Tokyo, and I will love every second.

Check them out in the gallery, and let us know what you think about this potential new look for Godzilla in the comments!
