I need to get caught up on this weird-ass puppet show. I'm not entirely sure it's not the best new Godzilla media of 2019!

Wasn't sure where to place this but a bizarre, five fingered "Snow Godzilla" appears in the new "Shinkalion" movie (or "Transforming Bullet Train Robot Shinkalion") -

And as herr-kroenen points out over on Tumblr -

In the weirdest pull in a while, the Snow Godzilla from the Shinkalion movie reuses the same exact model as the Godzilla design featured in one of the GEMSTONE Godzilla contest entries that spawned Gojiban.

Doubt it will happen, but I would love to see this design in a new Reiwa-era film.

I've never before been so unsure of what Toho's doing with the Godzilla character. I'm not sure they're sure either.

These types of crossovers are commonplace in Japanese pop culture. That Toho is having Godzilla, or at least alternate versions of Godzilla, pop up in some of these anime movies (themselves popular franchises) is just a result of the Godzilla brand being more popular.

Monster Hunter x Godzilla please, please, please! MH has done crossovers with so MANY properties, Metal Gear, Mega Man, Witcher, Street fighter, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Mario, Zelda, and Metroid to name a few. Godzilla and co. would be perfect. Hell they could just about make an entire off shoot game with monsters based on the Godzilla kaiju with as big of a roster Godzilla has.
