Operation Robinson Crusoe - King Kong vs. Ebirah by Fourgreen Operation Robinson Crusoe - King Kong vs. Ebirah by Fourgreen
Taking a slight detour from movies that feature Godzilla, "ORC - KK vs. E" is another one of those "What if?" alternate possibilities.

For those unaware, Godzilla vs The Sea Monster was a vehicle originally intended for Kong under Toho's care; Everything about the movie remained the same with him taking Godzilla's place. It makes more sense, as Kong is better suited to fight gigantic animals/prehistoric throwbacks. Ebirah NEVER made sense in terms of giving Godzilla a challenge, considering his Atomic breath would pretty much boil the lobster fairly quick.  Pitting two monsters against each other with just physical feats would up Ebirah's threat factor, with his massive claws, and ocean element.

I used the "King Kong Escapes" Kong for this, as that movie was the end result of Toho's next version of him. i'd imagine he'd resemble that suit more than the hokey gorilla costume from KK vs G.

Man, these are all just so fantastic. :3c I hope you keep these up, not just because you're good at it, but there's sooooo much stuff out there that doesn't get much fan art. Nessie, Barbaroi, Bride of Godzilla, and the rather recently discovered Chameleon from Japan S.O.S., just to name a few. I love this kind of stuff, because it's like you're getting a bunch of new ideas and stories that were lost to time in addition to a sort of "what if?" scenario of an alternate timeline where the movie actually did get made. So, is Batman vs. Godzilla next? ;o

I'm of two minds about this one, personally. On one hand GvsSM is so obviously a King Kong movie that it's a little hard to accept in its present form, even before I knew it was at one point actually a King Kong movie, and then of course there's the part where, because of it turning into a Godzilla movie, we missed out on Batman vs. Godzilla. On the other hand, KKvsE getting cancelled led directly to two really, really awesome things: Son of Godzilla and Gorosaurus. It also indirectly led to the eventual creation of Mechagodzilla, who was inspired by King Kong's own mechanical double. Is one movie where Godzilla is cast in a role that wasn't written for him worth all that? Well, it's sort of hard to tell because of course we don't know what else would have come down the line if KKvsE and BMvsG came out.

Heck, maybe there's an alternate universe somewhere where Godzilla regularly fought superheros, culminating in a 1979 Godzilla vs. Spiderman where he finally fights Leopardon. Well, one can dream...

Man, thank you for the kind words. It's been a blast working on these. I've taken a small break for now, but I plan on tackling mostly all the projects that were lost. I doubt I'll get into any sentai versions where Godzilla and Batman are involved (because I cant even imagine how that would work...lol) but I will try to get more into the zany-ier concepts like A Space Godzilla and so on...

actually my joke was refering to the serpent in king kong escapes but I imagine kong's reaction would be pretty much the same for either one of them.

Toho really should have just gave this giant shrimp to Kong. Ebirah was never worthy to grapple against the King of the Monsters!))

I wouldn't have been surprised to see a third version of Kong had this film ever been made, but your choice of "Escapes" Kong is very tasteful :D Well done!!

I wish this had happened, this one was a pretty boring Godzilla movie, and Kong would have worked SO much better in the lead role.
Plus, it would have taken away that... mind-scratching volleyball scene between the big G and Ebirah.
