And here we have the second wave of my Kaiju Collection, featuring various monsters from across the Showa and Heisei eras of Godzilla films. I'll try to keep this in roughly chronological order of when they were introduced. First up we have Sandslash as Angurius, the first monster that Godzilla ever went up against back in Godzilla Raids Again (1955), who would go on to be one of the Big G's most frequent allies. Up next we have Crawdaunt as Ebirah, from Ebirah, Horror of the Deep also known as Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster (1966). Here we have Scyther as Kamacuras and Galvantula as Kumonga, two giant bugs that debuted in Son of Godzilla (1967). I used Gligar as Varan, who originated in his own solo film before making a cameo in Destroy All Monsters (1968), simply because nothing really looked like the strange... thing... that Varan is as Gligar happened to have similar wings to the reptilian flying squirrel-like creature. This is supposed to be Dragonite as Gabara from All Monsters Attack (1969). I chose Dragonite because it was the closest to Gabara in terms of body shape, though Gabara didn't have wings. I thought about just removing the wings, but the goal of this project was to just do recolors without any other editing, so I ended up leaving them there. Muk as Hedorah from Godzilla vs. Hedorah (1971) is probably one of the most interesting choices that I've made for this project, at least in my opinion. For the most part I've been going off of design, picking Pokémon that look the most like the specific monster they are supposed to represent, but that isn't the case here. Muk looks almost nothing like Hedorah but happens to be based off of the same concept: toxic waist brought to life. This one might be my favorite of this batch of sprites because of that. And now we have Scizor representing one of my personal favorites, Gigan. On the left is Gigan's original appearance from Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972) and Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (1974), while on the right is his updated appearance from Godzilla Final Wars (2004). Next up we have Exadrill as Megalon and Machamp as Ultraman Zone Fighter, who both originate in Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973). Emboar as King Caesar from Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (1974) is another interesting pick, since I'm using a pig-man to represent a dog/lion-man. This is Haxorus as Titanosaurus from Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975). I don't really have anything else to say about this one other than that we've now reached the end of the Showa era. On the left here we have Swoobat as a Dorat, a trio of adorable bat-like aliens from Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991) that would eventually turn into King Ghidorah after getting nuked. On the right is Hydreigon as Mecha King Ghidorah from the same film. Next up is Volcarona as Battra, Mothra's evil counterpart from Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992). I wanted to use Mega Tyranitar as SpaceGodzilla from Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994), but sadly I didn't have a sprite of it to work with, so here's Empoleon instead. Also, Butterfree as Fairy Mothra from the same film. And finally for this batch, we have Giratina's Altered Form as Destoroyah from Godzilla vs. Destroyah (1995), the last film of the Heisei era. Destroyah happens to be the only monster in the history of the franchise to have actually managed to kill Godzilla, thus bringing the series to a close until Hollywood messed up with their own Godzilla movie and Toho had to step in to show us Americans how it's done with the Millenium series (which is technically part of the Heisei era of Japan, but considered separate from the earlier Heisei films). I've also done the second of Godzilla's Millennium era opponents, Megaguirus from Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000), represented by Yanmega. This is probably one of the best comparisons, since they're both giant, ancient dragonflies with 'mega' in their name. I don't know when I'm going to be getting back to this project, but there is still plenty for me to do. I skipped plenty of monsters from the Showa and Heisei eras that I'll probably go back and do later (although I have no idea what to use for Biollante) and I still need to do the rest of the Millenium series monsters. Although I think I'm going to take abreak and work on something else for now before getting back to this.
