Those designs are already a lot closer to the Japanese version than I was expecting. I was pretty sure they weren't going to go as different as the '90s American movie, but I was still expecting something pretty different.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

You know, I was kinda hoping they'd go with the Ricardo Delgado design from the 90s, ...

... but it seems pretty sure their Godzilla will be standing upright. But maybe it will still borrow some features of the Delgado design (similar to what they did for GMK).

Though he's been partially seen in the trailer they showed; more like his classic bark-like skin, not as bulky as the sculpts, and much larger and jagged dorsal plates. Oh, and he's massive, especially against the insect/Cloverfield-like Kaiju he was seen facing off against.

I wonder how large he'll be. IIRC, his original height was 50 meters give or take, but in the Heisei series he started out at 60 meters, then grew to 75, and by the end of the Heisei series was 100 meters tall, which I think is the maximum.

From io9:

Yesterday, director Gareth Edwards told us there would be other creatures in the film — and here's our first sight of one. It looks scary and huge.

And then Godzilla's foot comes down next to the creature. Godzilla's FOOT. Which is dwarfing this poor spindly little creature.

And then there's a massive hero shot of this previously big-looking creature looming over the airport, and then Godzilla rises up behind it, and it's like a skyscraper next to a hut.

Gareth said on IGN that he's bigger than any of the Toho film Godzilla's, though not much taller. There was talk that he was around 120 meters in height before the footage shown today, however in the stuff seen at SDCC he appears to be even bigger than that.

^Bigger than 120 meters? Okay, that's overkill. His size is implausible enough already. There should be limits.

(Just for comparison, how big are the kaiju and Jaegers in Pacific Rim?)

The Kaiju in Pacific Rim came in stages, stage 5 was the biggest of the bunch and it's size wasn't measured. The Jeagers were of varying sizes too to keep up with the changing Kaiju.

Yeah the '91-'95 version of Godzilla was 100 meters tall so it's not too far out giving how big buildings are nowadays,

Well here's the interview on IGN: http://uk.ign.com/videos/2013/07/19/...comic-con-2013

It sounds like they went through different sizes while designing him.

In terms of the Jaegers from Pacific Rim, here was a chart I'd seen:
