I found and bought at fye today two new Godzilla posters, one of which I haven't seen before with a good pic of Godzilla. I took a pic of the new one, sorry my camera isn't the greatest.

Wow, I don't understand all the hate for this. I love the proportions, the big, bulky arms and expression filled face looks great, and that turtle like chest is cool as hell.

It reminds me a bear standing up over its rear limbs. That´s what my aunt told me about the Jakks Pacific figure: the body looks more like a bear than any TOho Godzilla. I suppose that was the porpouse of Gareth Edwards to make his fighting style a cross between a bear and a Komodo Dragon... but the lack of shoulders makes him to look weird to me.
At least in my opinion, I still prefer the Heisei Desings over any other.

DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a great poster! The odd proportions are all about angles, and I actually prefer this Godzilla to the Empire version! :) He looks so freaking epic!!!! I really want to find this poster. Where/what is "fye" though? Is it an achronym? Could I find this now at, say... Walmart?

This is exactly what I want him to look like in the film, not even a little change should be made, because it couldn't possibly be more perfect. It's clear that all the effort Gareth Edwards told us they put into the design really paid off. Just looking at this makes want te root for him.

Ohhhh.....just look at him, he's perfect. I'm so proud. I'm welling up, somebody hand me a tissue he's BOOTIFUL!!.....
Haha, overboard, but I just thought Id get my thoughts across in as simple a way as possible. His design is stunning, my excitement levels just went from dangerous to the point at which I might become the nuclear bombs that are used to try kill him hehehe

The poster was $7.99 for those of you that plan on purchasing it.
You can't buy the poster here, but you can look up store locations.

He is right. Poster is teriible. Looks almost like some photosop fan-art. Wrong proportions, size. Neck is connected to the torso gust with wrong propotions and side. Cheesy low quality effects and airport. And NO tail and NO spikes. LOL. I'm so wondering - how can you say about this what it's amazing?

He's kind of right. It a pretty tacky poster compared to the theatrical ones: All that neon coloring and overdramatic lightening. And they do copy and paste that Godzilla head on to anything they can...
Not something I'm rushing out the door to buy. It's good for the younger kids I suppose, but I'd prefer one of the theatrical posters.

Oh god....people I'm so sorry that wasn't even me...it was like frape but on this site. My best friend who does not appreciate godzilla and likes to have a laugh got on this site as me and posted a load of random and rude posts. Sorry again

It's real. It's just a typical, mass production, assembly image slapped together in a sloppy photoshop fashion and used on all sorts of merchandise, toys, walls scrolls...etc...etc... It looks awful because it's cheap and calculated. All sorts of marketing subsidiaries make cheap images like this to slap on related products. Look at this:
All of these images are as fugly as all hell, but none of them were official, theatrical posters. The images on these posters, including the Godzilla poster we're speaking of, were meant to be put on products: Toys, cups, pens, t-shirts, promotional ads...etc... They just ended up making posters out of these cheap images because kids buy them and it makes studios more money. That's exactly what this new Godzilla poster is. A product image blown up to be a poster so kids will buy it. Happens all the time.
