Rubber Monsters > CGI Monsters


« on: August 29, 2016, 11:48:57 AM »

Hey guys, I know this is complete wackadoo coming from me, but I'm stumped as into what this monster is:

Yes, I know, it's quite blurry. Sorry about that.



I found the image on a different website that had someone else trying to identify this character as well but to no avail, and now I've become obsessed with finding this character. I'm still trying to figure out where the original uploader of the image found it to hopefully shed light on this mystery.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Have you eliminated Godzilla and Gorgo?

I did manage to uncover additional information on where this image originated from:

The following was not written by me:

"The original image that started this thread appeared in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager called "Future's End". The characters time-travel to the year 1996 and pick up several media transmissions, and this is one of them."

So I guess the question now is, did this monster actually debut in a film or was it a cameo costume made just for Star Trek? I remain unsure, but that's what I'm hoping we can find out.

Have you eliminated Godzilla and Gorgo?


I can confirm that it isn't Gorgo, and I don't believe that it is Godzilla or any of the monsters that appear in his films however I remain uncertain.

Not sure, the original poster was not specific as into where they found the image or with any details about its origin.

It does have a fair resemblance in the poster, but the monster "Baragon"'s costume in the movie doesn't appear to be a match.

Hmm, the headpiece looks an awful lot like the Gorn from that old Trek episode.  Since it was on Trek, it may be something that was filmed just for the episode, as an in-joke.

The picture seemed thinned. After looking at the voyager trivia I'm going to assumed this is from Godzilla 1985 since the buildings seemed similar and the mouth looks like Godzilla. The stuff on top his head does add confusing. is there a clip of this scene? Maybe the clip can give a better idea of the scene.

I don't think the scene was something they made and added to the story because of budget and this was a TV show.

It kind of looks like Godzilla as others have said. If it isn't Godzilla I haven't got a clue.

Yeah, I agree that the mouth and body does resemble Godzilla, but I noticed that the eyes are too small and are in the wrong place (although, it could be thinned, like you said). But the most confusing parts are the strange eyebrow-like features and the small horn-like protrusions coming from its head. It looks a lot like something out of the "showa" era, which doesn't help much since there's a lot of kaiju from that era.

As for finding the clip in the episode, I was unable to find it, but some websites supposedly had the full episode, but I decided not to look into it in case if it was sketchy.

I think I've looked at hundreds of godzilla images and gifs and so far the only similar scene I can see is:



Destroy all Monsters (1968)

The buildings are white, Godzilla's head is higher and the sky is cloudy.

It could be a stock footage of Godzilla, therefore we might never find out what movie he's in.

Well, I originally found the image on what used to be the Godzilla Wikia's talk page about someone wondering the same thing. So, I would assume that since it's the Godzilla wikia that the respondents would have caught on right away if it was Godzilla or a character in a Godzilla movie.

I found a wiki article which is apparently where the image came from. The article's really vague and the author probably doesn't know where the monster came from either, saying that it looks similar to Godzilla.
