Godzilla Neo - ZILLA by KaijuSamurai Godzilla Neo - ZILLA by KaijuSamurai
Reptile Monster

HEIGHT: 50 meters
MASS: 15,000 metric tons

In the bleary summer of 1998, thunderous footsteps shook the streets of New York City, and a shrieking roar shattered windows. Buildings were smashed, landmarks pulverized, fish trucks....eaten?
Headlines blared "GODZILLA TAKES A BITE OUT OF THE BIG APPLE!," "KING OF THE MONSTERS IN NYC!," and vendors lined the streets selling shirts declaring "Godzilla Was Here!" and photographs were taken in the massive footprints left in the monster's wake.
Of course, within days, it was all too obvious that Godzilla had NOT attacked New York, had NOT dug tunnels throughout the city, laid 100 eggs in Madison Square Garden, or died from 6 Tomahawk missles on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was instead a beast later known as "Zilla," or "Godzilla In Name Only" by the Kaiju Zoological and Enthusiast community, had chosen the metropolis as a place to lay its eggs and find food (WHY is subject to question). Despite the fact that the King of the Monsters had NOT died at the hands of the US Airforce, they sure liked to believe he did, and the announcements to the contrary were severely downplayed in the media.
Regardless, Biologist Nick Tatopolous knew that there was a very, VERY good chance that not all of the creature's eggs were destroyed in the blast that obliterated the nest. Leading a small search party, Nick discovered a lone egg. Hatching and imprinting on the scientist, "Zilla Jr," as it came to be nicknamed, began to follow Nick with incredible loyalty and intelligence, proving itself to be not only an efficient and agile fighter, but a benevolent kaiju at that.
The real question remained, however, as to where the original came from. That answer came in the form of Phillip Roche, and his protege', Monique Dupre. Part of a French Special Forces sector, the two were charged by their superiors to "clean up a mess" left from a series of experiments conducted in French Polynesia, were 5 "G-Cell Mutations" had escaped after a catastrophic accident (it is believed that S.C.A.L.E., a pro-kaiju rights organization/eco terrorist cell, was involved in these events). Nick Tatopolous, forming the H.E.A.T. team, hunted down all the remaining mutations, with Zilla's help, of course.
After a particularly traumatic event in Alaska, Zilla was later taken to Monster Island, where he would spend the remainder of his life...MOST of it, anyway...

She can't spit radiation charged fire. She just roars so strong that it creates explosions. In the movie they made the illusion that she was spitting fire from the angle they shot it at.

This is Zilla Jr. the one from the TV show he could breath green atomic fire. You're thinking of his father/mother Zilla whose the one from the movie

The 98 film as simply a monster movie isn't all that bad. But Godzilla it is not. The toys ad cartoon that that film spawned however are another story. Those were freaking awesome back in the day. Though oddly enough I feel as if Zilla was a remake of  The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. Mainly because they do have slightly similar basic designs. And the fact you see very obvious tributes to Ray Harryhausen through out the movie.

Nice redesign of Zilla. I especially like the spikes on him, makes him look more fearsome.
