Godzilla vs Leatherback by Die-Laughing Godzilla vs Leatherback by Die-Laughing
Godzilla is the first Daikaiju I've ever seen and is still my favourite. His movies have ranged from culturally shocking, to hilarious and silly at best. He was a defining monster to the movie genre. He will never be forgotten. And to me, he really and truly is, the king of the monsters.

Leatherback is good. But I'm sure Del Toro would agree with me that Godzilla'd mop the floor with him.

Leatherback - Legendary, Del Toro

Godzilla - Toho

Leatherback is going home in a body bag....a very VERY large body bag.

WRONG! He is going home in hundreds of human sized ones and thousands of ash urns.

Ladies, gentleman please. He can't go home if he's sleeping over with the fishes.

Nope, 328 feet is the confirmed height. It's even shown in Gvs. Mothra 1992 when Godzilla emerges from Mount Fuji.

You can't tell size from the way the two are standing/crouching.

Also, I don't really think he was going for technicalities here.

Godzilla: I learned this move from Gypsy Danger! And we call it a farewell to arms!

Leatherback: Are you serious!?!? NOT AGAIN!!!

Nah, Godzilla was ripping limbs way before even Guillermo del Toro was born.

I'm sure Del Toro would agree with you, after all he made Pacific Rim partly because he loved kaijus.

Nice to see another fan that shares my idea! I heard that a major part of Pacific Rim's development, was based on Del Toro's love for the original Godzilla film. I could see a LOT of homages to the big G, and further still to the other major kaiju series out there!

I haven't actually watched any classic Godzilla movies, or any classic kaiju movies, so I couldn't really notice that stuff, but I did notice a lot of homages to the super robot genre: the kaiju had blue blood, angels from Evangelion have "type blue blood"; Gypsy Danger used a more realistic version of Mazinger's Rocket Punch; Gypsy Danger's head screwed on like Gurren Lagann; the entire plot was very similar to Gunbuster; etc. I think it's safe to say Del Toro is an otaku :XD:

Well I figured that the he'd pull influences from the super robot genre for his jaegers. I noticed more references flowing through the kaiju because I was a bigger fan of monsters than I was robots as a kid. Still am, to be quite honest. Cloverfield, though a bit rushed and questionably shot, was a fantastic kaiju flick. I thoroughly enjoyed how similar it was to the first time Godzilla showed up, only on a more personal level.

Haven't seen that one either. I probably know about as much about kaiju as you do about super robots ^^;
