Toho Aliens Galore! by KaijuSamurai Toho Aliens Galore! by KaijuSamurai
Just toying with some designs. These could have worked well as Neo concepts too :D

They are -
The Xillians - A race of humanoids who had long ago eschewed emotion for pure logic. However, instead of turning down a path of moderation and civility, they resorted to pure coldness. They see humanity as a threat, a race of half-monkeys with technology that far outstrips their ability to use it. Better to conquer them and put them in their place before they destroy the solar system.

The Kilaaks - Only a handful of these silicon-based life forms are left after their former planet was destroyed millions of years ago. Living in the warm cores of the floating asteroids, they have become obsessed with doing the work of their lord and eventual "savior," the mighty King of Terror...

The Nebulans - The little invasion that could! They are a shadow people, inheriting a planet that was barely usable, even for an insect. Now they're playing a game of chance with Earth, balancing their plan to wait out humanity's inevitable extinction with the desire to get a jump on things with their super-weapon, Gigan!

The Simians - These beings that arrive on Earth do not represent the majority of their race. They are arms dealers, military capitalists and black market entrepreneurs. Their home planet is slowly circling a black hole, and their plan is to conquer Earth, enslave the populace, and sell this broken (but functional) world to their leaders back home. Then they can retire to some moon to drink cognac and puff some fine cigars to their hearts' content.

Matt, I LOVE THIS!  Your reinterpretations of the Kilaak and Simians in particular are fantastic, I think I'm just going to adopt this as my personal fanon interpretation for them from now on.  ^___^  Seriously, great job!

(Also, based on your reinterpretation, I feel as if Earth and the Nebulans might've gotten along rather well had they met under different circumstances.)

The Nebulans don't look at all like the cockroaches from Men in Black, no at even a bit. Lol !

When Ever I think of the Nebulans, all I think of is a whole race of Waspinators for some reason....

YES YES YES. SO AWESOME. I was considering doing this myself, but you have done such a great job, there is absolutely no need for me to make an attempt. Stellar!

So basically it's like a Toho Covenant. You have ape like brutes who don't care for the over all have insect like drones, you have cold humans with the sternness of the elites....well it's not completely like the covenant but you get my idea. 

Hey, combine this with the aliens from the American Godzilla cartoon, and any other aliens in the other Godzilla movies, bam we have lift off.

Your description of the Simians almost make them sound like Saiyans, and they're technically monkeys too XD

The Space Hunter M aliens look like King Saoden... and the Simians just look like King Kong in a suit smoking a cigar. :XD:

Suh-weet redesigns.  Especially on the Kilaaks and the Simians are just boss!
Imperator-Lawrence Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013   Writer
Fantastic! Each and every one of them is alien in their own distinct fashion. I especially like the Nebulan redesign for not just sticking to a rote cockroach, and the Kilaaks look weird and unsettling now.
Crimsonguard477 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013
Looks great!

Hey man, that's excellent. I think you made something corny respectable.

The Namikawa-Xillian reminds me of a typical russian spy, which was pretty much her role in Astro-Monster; sent into enemy territory, but fell in love with one of the enemy.

The Kilaak looks like she's either going to bake you a cake or blast you with a raygun. :XD:

The Nebulan looks as pathetic as it really is; little insects trying to topple man.

I love what you did with the Simians~! the original Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla was always a personal favorite of mine because of Mechagodzilla, spy suspense, and of course, space apes. The design you took here makes the chief look like Fidel Castro. It's so awesome~!
scythemantis Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool interpretations of all these, especially the Nebulan, a bit of a step up from just filming an ordinary cockroach! They were always my favorites, and I wish they'd have returned with other crazy creations like Gigan.

These are awesome! I absolutely enjoy viewing your art. If you get a chance, I'm currently working on a Godzilla story, I'm not sure if you'll like it but I'll apreciate if you take a look. Again, big fan, I enjoy your art!

The Nebulan design kinda' reminds me of this: [link]

Seriously though, I love these designs. Namikawa looks stunning as always! I also like how you made the Kilaaks look more alien. When I look at her, I am reminded of the Reach from the television series, Young Justice.

I want IDW to introduce these alien races in the ongoing as well! Or at least in another mini-series. :XD:

Very interesting designs here. While the Xillian seems very true to the original movie, but I like the back story you gave their race.
The Kilaak looks pretty creepy, and I like how they have become the disciples of Ghidorah.
Very impressive design of the Nebulans, very well designed, a very proper anthropomorphic roach design. I like the idea that if they were just a little more patient, they could wait and inherit our world that we ruined on our own the way they inherited their own world.
And the Simian boss is pretty impressive, being a brash and suave business man and conqueror. By the way, is his name supposed to be 'Tsuda' or 'Buda'?
Mighty-Hetz Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
If you were really going for a "galore" you would have included the Mysterians as they are also Toho aliens just never seen in a Godzilla film. Great artwork never the less.
Xengix008 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
BTW some of the Aliens are different in my series. Simmeons have armor similar to Brutes from Halo. Kylaakian's have more extraterrestial tribal armor, But the tradittional kylaakians with the white clothes on the movies appear. They are part of a section called "Robed Council". They're pretty much secondary leaders next to they're queen. The Nebulan infantry is devided by bug classifications (soldiers, sentry's, drones etc.) and look similar to Elites, Grunts and Skirmishers from Halo. Now the Millenians, Vortaak and Xillians are the same as the movies
Xengix008 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
in my series theres a war between Earth and many other aliens that appeared on Toho. Its an all out war between Kylaakians, Nebulans, Simmeons(thats how theyre named in my series), Vortaak, Millenians(kaiju breed of Orga) and Xillians, and Earth is theyre prize. But they're not all siding against earth. They're fighting eachother. Itslike a Space World War, dubbed The Great Galaxy War. Even Kaiju we're involved in the war (BTW kaiju have breed's so most of them have they're own species, including Godzilla, Anguirus etc.)

the Nebulans are so awesome
these should be added to G neo .

This is very good, who can forget that these characters are the real villains of the series (my personal favorite has to bee the Simian).
BehemothMaker Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
Very cool designs (I like the Simian)
Crocazill Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
I know they can't be in IDW comics, but in a perfect world they would be. Damn it, Toho, why won't you let Godzilla grow as a mythology?
Gfan1 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
that's one thing i missed in the heisei and millennium movies, not enough crazy aliens trying to take over the Earth

great work
Autobot-Revimus Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Definitely good designs alright, and they would certainly work for the Neo series. Speaking of, I got a few questions since you mentioned Neo.

1. Have you considered Neofying the Dorats?
2. If so, is it possible you are going to do so in series 3 at some point?
3. If not or you never considered neofying them, just for the fun of it, how would you go about neofying the Dorats? (Don't answer 3 if you said yes to 2. I want to see how it's actually done if and when you do neofy them.)
Stephonm Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
You known I'm trying get Matt to neofy the dorats. Want to hear?
Autobot-Revimus Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
You have huh? I guess I'm not the only one who was curious. But yeah, thank you, but no thanks. If the man is going to do it, I want to hear it from him. Course, he might have said something about it on one of his blogs... If I just knew where to go for it...
Stephonm Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013
How are you going hear it in real life if you dont know where am I?
