Staff Edit: I just received word from Warner Bros. today, confirming that these are NOT photos of any official, licensed Godzilla products. These were made by a third party and are in no way linked to official merchandise production for the new Godzilla movie. - Chris Picard

True - perhaps the vital organs are kept all in the head area? It looks like the head is fairly large in proportion to the legs. Could be like how many insects have most of their vital organs in the thorax.
Whatever it is - it doesn't look like it's from this planet, which begs the question - is M.U.T.O in the Alien discovery and analysis business as well? I thought we wouldn't be seeing any Alien Monsters in this one, but we might be after all, because that thing doesn't look like any "natural" thing on Earth.
Either it's Alien, or spliced by genetic tampering and then mutated.

I gotta say, I'd be lying if I wasn't really letdown by the final look of Godzilla.
Hear me out, this is based on my love for the original Godzilla design and just this series of photos alone.
He is way way too fat. Sure it may not be fat, I can imagine it's all muscle or what have you, but he looks way too fat to me. His neck is practically nonexistent and his arms look way way too small. His fingers and feet don't match up with the angular sharp design of the spines/tail. The only thing I really really like are the spines and his face, that's really about it. The roar (From the teaser, mind you) feels and sounds way too high pitched. I'm not gonna say it's bad, it's not by any means a bad design (cough Zilla cough) but I'm really underwhelmed. When I heard they were "Going back to his roots" I assumed it'd look a bit more like the 54 design, but it seems they only applied that to his face.

i'm pretty sure and really hoping that those are not gills at the base of his neck, just scales. the reason i hope that they are not is because that would really limit godzilla, in the old movies he could even survive in space( this is not unheard of in reality by the way, tiny creatures commonly known as water bears can survive in the vacum of space)! Godzilla has never had the biology of a normal animal. I know some would say that realism in the new movie would require something like gills, but i don'y thinck gareth wants to make the monster himself overly realistic, he is mainly going to make the human reaction/response realistic. In any case, realism would not allow godzilla to have gills, because he is a dinosaur, a reptile. to me, it looks like ovrelapping armor on his neck that makes it both tough and flexible, not gills . they look a bit thick for gills and we already know that this Godzilla will be heavily armored. as for the rest of the design, i love it, it has its own modern style, but it still is the old godzilla that we all know and love.

I love the look of GODZILLA its new without trying to completely reinvent him. HATE THE GILLS THOUGH IF THAT WHAT THEY ARE. IMO PERSONALLY I LOVE THE LEG DESIGN ND THE FEET REMEMBERING SOMEONE ON HERE SAID THEY COMPARE TO POLAR BEAR LEGS SOOOOO DOPE CHEERS

I'm pretty much sold on the whole design except one part, the feet/toes. The legs look quite beefy and then you have these somewhat tiny feet/toes compared to the rest of Godzilla. Your telling me that those are supposed to support this 500-700+ ft monster? They just seem quite disproportinate compared to the rest of his body parts and I don't think that they quite fit the rest of the design. I know I'm being picky I guess unfortunately but thats the one part that bothers me but each to their own I suppose. Hopefully (if thats what they stick with then for the feet/toe design) I won't see them that much in the movie haha Or perhaps the design will grow on me.
