    1998 will always be the worst. Original and 2014 designs are a tossup for me, I like the facial design on the old one better, but the overly bulky legs make it look silly even for a movie prop as old as it is. Some parts of the movie aside, I quite enjoyed the way Godzilla was portrayed in the 2014 movie, though I think they made him a bit too... Fat.

    I like the original, but the 2014 does not look too far off.

    1998 was a joke. I'd have to say 2014 because of all the badass shit that he did in the movie, original one was good too but I like how the new Godzilla breathes plasma instead of fire.

    Also the original movies were cool as a kid but I think they'd look like action figures now.

    Newest Godzilla is best Godzilla. The one in Godzilla 2000 is my second fav.

    People love to jump on the "old is good" hipster bandwagon for this. But really, the original godzilla design is completely awful. It's like a poorly made toy of a dinosaur--and seriously, those thighs?

    The 2014 is better, but still fundamentally flawed, because it's like they tried to make the original design not completely suck.

    The Zilla design is waaaaaay better. It's sleeker, it's more realistic to what a giant lizard (i.e. not looking like some sort of retarded bear-alligator hybrid), and it feels much more aggressive and dangerous compared to the other two, that are only threatening looking because of their size.
    The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was... inconsolable.

    The way he "breathes plasma" was fucking awesome. I really liked that part of the movie. It was one of the things that made the movie for me. It was also something that was missing from the 98 movie. He either didn't breath fire, or it was weak when he did, i can't remember.

    No SpaceGodzilla or MechaGodzilla II in poll? They are better than original/2014.

    Neither one of them is the "real" Godzilla.

    True but since both of them are zillas and have the same design, why not?

    Because this is directly linked to the fact that Japan has a hate-on for the new design.

    Which is hilarious considering that one look at the thighs of the original rubber-suit model should remind anyone of the Michelin Man. I mean seriously, he's so pear-shaped he could be a posterboy for Dove.

    I like the look of the 2014 over the original. Some of that is due to the way its weight is distributed and such. The 98 version was their attempt to be realistic but if they wanted to be realistic the hind legs shouldn't have been so big. I had a pet iguana for 13 years and I see where they did the design work, but to make it a 'godzilla' they had to make it stand taller which is why the hind legs don't work on it.

    2014 version by far.

    2014 by miles.

    The 98 one looks like a retarded T-rex from Jurassic park.

    Neither is the 1998 Zilla, as soon as Toho got the rights back they renamed him/her Zilla and had a sequence where Godzilla kicks its ass in under a minute (including greeting roars and posing).

    Not sure how any one can like the Jurassic park rip off that is the 1998 version. It's nothing like what Godzilla was supposed to be.
