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.

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.

Great work! I think it's interesting how Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster was originally meant for King Kong. But I still don't understand all the hate G vs. SM gets. Everyone's reason seems to be "This film sucks because it was originally meant to be King Kong." That's like saying Die Hard sucks because it was originally written for Arnold Schwarzenegger instead of Bruce Willis. I think it's a fine entry and I enjoy it more that most of the Heisei films. I actually liked seeing Godzilla take on more mundane monsters once in while and I like seeing how more simple foes would try to fight Godzilla. I also thought Ebirah was a pretty awesome looking Kaiju. It also hosts one of my favorite moments,  Godzilla ripping Ebirah's arms off.

Eh, I always found it a bit boring, and the dubbing gets on my nerves. That isn't the movie's fault though, that's the distributor's.

It's one of my faves too...but I do notice it now that I know who it was originally intended for. I would have only preferred it was a Kong movie, for the sole reason that it would have further cemented him being in the Godzilla universe.
