Megalon Redesign by Virus-91 Megalon Redesign by Virus-91
Here's a redesign of the Kaiju, Megalon. I wanted to make him more insect like in appearance, so I gave him some extra limbs and gave him more of an armored beetle appearance.

I tend to dislike Megalon redesigns who play up his insectoid characteristics while downplaying his 'beetle warrior' thing. But this one strikes a happy balance of the two. It's chitinous, clicky, clacky and nasty, but still has that stone wall solidity of the original, while looking agile and swift at the same time. It's more gruesome looking, but I can still look at it and think "yep, that's Megalon".

This is great. I think if Megalon ever appears in a movie again he should be stupid and slow like his old version... but the he gets an intelligence and speed upgrade.

If I imagine Megalon in more of a horror style, this is what I would like to see.

You're welcome. Always wanted to see a Megalon design where he's actually, ya know, a bug.

Yeah, that's what I was going for. I've had a few people who weren't too fond of the design of the legs, but it's understandable. They may appear dinosaur like, but I was actually taking some inspiration from The Fly remake.

I would LOVE to see Megalon design as one that would kick some rear and drill them to death. But if the interpretation is the "dumb and not all too bright" fellow, the original design can do. Anyway, LOVE the redesign.

Thanks! I just wanted to see how Megalon would look if was more threatening in appearance and more intelligent than his Showa self. Not that I have anything against the original Megalon.

i dont know why... but even as a kid i wasn't a fan. lol he's just ok in my book. not nearly as cool as the Showa's anguirus, mechagodzilla, king ghidorah, and gigan. XD

I completely agree. Gigan is actually my favorite Godzilla enemy, but he's hard to do redesigns for. As for Megalon, he's definitely one of the lesser kaiju. Both the movie he was in as well as the suit for the character were pretty cheap. But I still enjoy Godzilla vs. Megalon because of how crazy bad it is. It's still a very fun movie.
