Couldn't you have said the same thing about Galactus, Anti-Monitor or Beyonder?

This is also part of why I specifically want to see "Godzilla, but hit by a shrink ray as soon as he lands in 'C3G World' ". Beyond matters of figure practicality, it just seems to make more sense / seems easier to balance if he's 'handicapped' a bit where other people can logically effect him in a more even manner. I just don't feel like Godzilla in his natural state is a great fit for a tactical wargame about superheroes in the first place. Even if the size stuff could be worked out, he's just from a very different genre.

Oh, I should also clarify that while I am very attached to Godzilla (for me anyway, I don't really do attachments in general), and have consumed like a solid 75% of all Godzilla/Gojira media that's available, I'm also not going to really fight anyone over this.

I’m not saying being huge is the only feature of his character, but I do think it’s the biggest (pun not intended) one. If somebody describes a character as Godzilla-esque, the first thing I’m thinking of is that the character must be big and destructive, not that they breath atomic fire or that they’re an expression of the fears of the collective Japanese subconscious or whatever.

I will admit that the idea of expanding the Godzilla-verse in C3G changes things a bit. I can see your logic there, but I’m not sure potentially putting Mothra in the game really justifies watering down Godzilla himself.

What bus is this that he'd be smaller than?

The sorts of VDOs you were talking about earlier?

Spaceships and the Helicarrier, primarily.

Seems rules are in place, though

There may be a big difference in generations here too. For the first 20 years of Godzilla, 1954-1973, he was about 150 feet tall. The current Godzilla in the movies is about 400 feet tall.

I'm more familiar with OG 'Zilla.

I see him as a lot like Batman where his portrayal changes based on what’s needed for the story. That could be an argument for multiple versions, like a ginormous smashy smashy version and a smaller team-up/crossover version.

I could see that.

Me too. I change my vote to C, both. :-D I think there's room for two Godzilla designs and that best fits the ultimate goal of more people actually playing Godzilla.

We've had a lot of discussion after the initial vote proposal and I've stayed open to it and changed my vote accordingly. I've now reached the side I feel most confident in and urge you all to change your votes to C as well.

Re: Margloth's Ex-Hero Ramblings Thread
 
I vote C

He seems to have gone through enough changes and been used in enough different way over the years to justify two versions.
