Godzilla vs. Kong isn’t out for another year and we don’t have the long-awaited trailer yet but we have some new Godzilla material to tide you over – kind of.

An image coming courtesy of Godzilla-Movies.com gives us a close-up look at Snow Godzilla in the Shinkalion anime feature with the longwinded title Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion the Movie: The Marvelous Fast ALFA-X That Comes From the Future.

Looking like he is about ready to blast something with a chillier than normal beam of his atomic breath, check out the image below.


According to Godzilla-Movies, this image was grabbed by a Twitter user (@ggrasperZX). It represents one of the few glimpses of Snow Godzilla circulating the web thanks to home release.

Robo Shinkalion came out late last year. In it, Snow G does battle with the main character, Hatsune Miku, in a wintery clime during whiteout conditions – going by the image. Outside Japan and Asia, the film is hard to come by.

Despite promotional material accompanying its release, there is little else showing Snow G in all his glory. Godzilla-Movies hopes for more imagery. Luckily, I found some more.

Here is a quick clip (sorry, no sound) of Snow Godzilla roaring.

And here is a little bit of the fight.

GgrasperZX also shared other images as well.

The hell-frozen-over design is going over well with fans. Some are comparing it to the beloved Heisei Era (1984-95) by which everything is measured now.

To others, it is reminiscent of a design from GEMSTONE shorts such as a Godzilla v. Gigan short film. They even accuse it of being the same model, like the following Redditor.

In the weirdest pull in a while, the Snow Godzilla from the Shinkalion movie reuses the same exact model as the Godzilla design featured in one of the GEMSTONE Godzilla from GODZILLA

Both designs remind me of the vengeful-spirit Godzilla from Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001).

GEMSTONE is a collaborative side project (FYI) between Godzilla creators Toho and new outfit AlphaBoat, a marketing firm, to scout talent in film and animation.

Shinkalion, or Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion, is a Mecha Japanese toy line inspired by Plarail model trains and made in association with the Japan Railways Group.

The related anime series ran from January 2018 to June 2019. The Marvelous Fast ALFA-X That Comes From the Future has been out since December.
