People are only just noticing this hilarious Godzilla character design flaw

Ah, Godzilla. Everyone's favourite prehistoric reptilian monster is enjoying something of a comeback right now, starring in not one, but two films a few months apart. Godzilla Minus One arrived to rave reviews last month, while the highly anticipated Godzilla vs Kong is set for release in March. But if you've ever wondered exactly how long old 'zilla's legs are, it seems you're not alone.

Several Godzilla movies feature shots of the monster standing in the ocean with most of his body above water – it was even the main image in the poster for 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters (below). But as one artist has hilariously hypothesised, that means he either has ridiculously long legs, or ridiculously tall shoes. (Looking for more design inspiration?
