Art for the Godzilla vs. Eva symphony CD. The actual cover is cropped and colored, but here's the totally awesome full image in b&w:

I'm sure I will get crapped on but I like that design a lot. It looks what a fisherman would of interpreted Godzilla back in the 50's from just a quick sighting.

I'd be curious to see what that would look like in a movie. I'd settle for a short movie.

It looks like the Form 4 reverting to the serpentine locomotion of Form 2/3.

It's a bit of a spiritual sibling to the Ricardo Delgado Godzilla design for the unmade Godzilla '94: distinctly Toho Godzilla features, but a body with vastly more flexibility.

I wonder if Delgado was inspired by the Heisei Godzilla's feline facial features to put Godzilla in catlike poses?

The 94 script had him occasionally going on all fours in brief bursts of speed, I think that's where that came from.

In that great big G94 article on the main site Delgado said he was inspired by lots of Arthur Adams and William Stout in his design before it was handed over to Stan Winston's guys. Toho also wanted Sony to veer close to the Heisei design without being an exact copy of it (shame how that went in the end).

^That's a pretty good fan trailer. The Eva footage comes from an episode of Khara's Animator Expo, but I don't know where else those live-action snippets come from (although I definitely saw the God Warrior in there).

I have a limited edition copy on the way! Based on what I've seen on YouTube, it's going to sound epic:

The Asahi Shimbun January 19, 2019:
ANIME NEWS: Evangelion to fight Godzilla at USJ in summer
Universal Studios Japan will become a battleground between the “king of monsters” and a giant bio-robot this summer.

The showdown pitting Godzilla against Evangelion, an iconic machine from the “Neon Genesis Evangelion” manga and anime series, will be part of the Summer Term of the Osaka theme park’s “Universal Cool Japan 2019” initiative from May 31 to Aug. 25.

Going into its fifth year, Universal Cool Japan, which incorporates some of the nation’s popular entertainment brands, will see eight attractions themed on six pop culture titles.

The battle of the century between Godzilla and Evangelion will be a theater-style attraction. Details will be announced at a later date.

Other titles featured during the Summer Term include “Attack on Titan” and “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.” The Spring Term, which starts on Jan. 18 and runs until June 23, will feature “Detective Conan” and “Lupin the Third.”

For more information, visit the park’s official website at (https://www.usj.co.jp/universal-cool-japan2019/).
