Design Chronology


Godzilla design (2016 film)


The 2017 Godzilla design is the design of Godzilla that is seen and used in the 2017 Godzilla film, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters.

The design was first revealed upon the release of the film's theatrical poster, which coincided with an update for the film's main site and Twitter account, on June 12, 2017.[1]

A statue of the design was unveiled on August 19, 2017, as promotion for the film, and revealed the monster's design in its entirety.


The 2017 design of the classic monster follows in the footsteps of its 2016 predecessor by incorporating elements of past designs within its own, in this case, that of the 2014 Godzilla incarnation.

Differences in the creature's design boil down to the dorsal plates being much more spiky and frayed in appearance, almost looking like a hybrid between the 2014 and 2016 designs for the monster's dorsal spines. The statue for the film depicts them as much more leaflike in aesthetic, even possessing veins, further solidifying his origins by plant-life. Said dorsal plates run all the way down this Godzilla's tail.

The creature's design also looks like it has exposed musculature over its entire body in a similar way to the 2016 Godzilla. However, this design deviates from looking like pure muscle, and instead bears more of a likeness towards the roots of plants, with moss-like details being prevalent on the design's feet as well. Oddly enough, this Godzilla's foot design is biologically similar to that of a human's, featuring a similar arch between the toe and heel, or calx pads, as well as similar toe design. The leg design overall is similar to that of most Heisei era Godzilla designs, featuring a simple thigh and shin build, over being digitigrade.

The head of this Godzilla design bears more than a passing resemblance to the 2014 Godzilla design, featuring a much more natural, and normal head shape, almost akin to a sea turtle when looked at head on. His eyes are a blazing green in coloration, and interestingly enough, this Godzilla lacks natural teeth, instead having tooth-like appendages forming from its skin. The mouth of the creature also possesses an odd, unintentional smile, with the back of the jaw curving upwards.

Godzilla's skin tone is a deep green in coloration, making this the first green Godzilla design since 1999's MireGoji design.
