GODZILLA VS. KONG Concept Art Reveals New Look At Mechagodzilla As Artist Explains TERMINATOR Inspiration

Godzilla vs. Kong concept artist Jared Krichevsky has shared more of his Mechagodzilla designs, revealing how the classic Terminator movies inspired his work on the crossover event. Check it out here...

Godzilla vs. Kong may have primarily focused on the fight between the titular Titans, but the final act saw them forced to team up in order to battle the formidable Mechagodzilla. 

Visually, that sequence proved to be an absolute blast, and the movie delivered a cool take on the metallic Kaiju. Now, concept artist Jared Krichevsky has returned to Instagram to share even more of his work from Godzilla vs. Kong, and that means we get an even closer look at the impressive design. 

"'It has to be a Terminator.' That's what [Legacy Effects] Co-Head John Rosengrant said in our meeting with [Adam Wingard] as we reviewed images," Krichevsky explains. "Being [Legacy Effects], [there are] lots of T-800s about and so I studied what made them terrifying. So that became my main source of inspiration. The skeletal structure, the eerie but uncanny similarity of man with the cold steel of machine. Mechagodzilla had to look different than any other previous versions."

"He couldn't look like an exact machine version of Godzilla, which was my first attempt. So I went to opposites, Godzilla has a thick body, so I went with a lean, fish-ike body and skeletal tail, Godzilla has stubby arms, so I gave him extra reach. The claw hands were something I pitched in the room, but I knew they needed to see it to understand it. One note was that the hands needed to be unique."

Regardless of how you felt about the movie, there's no denying that Mechagodzilla delivered (even if it might have benefited from a little more screentime before being destroyed).
