Hello. I am VaderRaptor (Vader for short). I am a fellow kaiju lover who dreams of becoming a paleontologist. If you don’t know what a paleontologist does, here’s what they do: paleontologists dig out and study dinosaur bones along with other prehistoric creatures. My favorite Godzilla movie is Godzilla: King of the Monsters. My least favorite is All Monsters Attack. I also watch Jurassic Park movies, Star Wars movies, Attack on Titan (anime), One Punch Man (anime), JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (anime), and the occasional Marvel movie. I am working on many sandboxes (User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/White Titan/ Shikishima, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Rouge Titan/ Eren, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Armin, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Mikasa, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Jean, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Sasha, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Sannagi, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Souda, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Hans, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Lil, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/G-Fan, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Peter Jackson, User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Dilophosaurus, and User:VaderRaptor/Sandbox/Kagoshima Bay). I have also finished the Netflix page, the Haruna-class destroyer, the Colossal Titan page, and many redirect pages.
I was born in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 13, 2007. I spent the first 5 years of my life there. Then my dad got a new job so we moved to Ephrata, Pennsylvania. While in Ephrata, I went downstairs and turned on the TV, and opened Netflix. I then watched my first Godzilla movie for around 30-45 minutes (I don't remember how long it was). It was one of the Showa films called Invasion of Astro-Monster. I remember the wonder in my eyes as I a giant kaiju fight and when Godzilla started dancing. That kicked the dinosaur interest that I had since we were in Raleigh into high gear. I studied and learned all I could for years. I then watched half of Godzilla: Final Wars for my 10th birthday and the other half the morning after. That was my first full Godzilla movie. I started seeing ads for Shin Godzilla and Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. I then saw the trailer for Planet of the monsters with my family and I watched the movie over my Christmas break. Then, I discovered Wikizilla and read a lot of its articles until I made a profile to comment and read the site. Then, I made my first few edits on the Tokyo page for Godzilla: Final Wars and later for Shin Godzilla (I had used some birthday money to buy 4 Godzilla films: GMK, Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, Shin Godzilla, and Godzilla: Final Wars (my mom only rented it off amazon so I bought it). Now I am in 7th grade. I have been on the site for a little more than 2 years now and I have about 4270 edits. I have also watched 19 Godzilla movies and recruited 3 members to Wikizilla. (One got banned because of his brother taking control of his brother and blanking pages, and the other two, Rope and MinecrafterJoe, are inactive. I am currently making a dinosaur encyclopedia that could total up to 500 or so pages.

I have also watched the anime Godzilla trilogy and the Godzilla (1998 film). I only have one Godzilla game and that is the Godzilla PS4 game. I went to see King of the Monsters (2019) in the first week of June. I also have watched the first Gamera movie and I'm planning to eventually watch Gorgo. For Christmas, I got the magazine G-Fan. Recently, I watched some Showa era movies on Playstation Vue as my mom had saved them on DVR. Recently, I bought Godzilla: King of the Monsters on DVD.

I am trying to get more Godzilla movies until I watch all of them. I'm also planning on getting the Live-action Attack on Titan movies (mainly because I want to finish all of my sandboxes).
I have built a LEGO mech that when combined with its counterpart I call the Super Penguin Bot 3000 (parody of Super Mechagodzilla and Garuda). It’s called “Penguin” Bot 3000 because my friend who moved away loved penguins. The original build (which only had the mech) took around 5 days. That was back in either 2015 or 2016. The latest set of upgrades was made in August 2020. The Super S was made in the set of "upgrades" two before the latest ones in the summer of 2019. The photos are in the gallery below. I will update them as the mech changes. In the gallery are most of my other builds as well which are mostly Star Wars themed. Some of them will change and be updated as well.

Godzilla 1954 is an absolute masterpiece. It has surprisingly good looking effects for its time and a perfect soundtrack. I like how they employed Godzilla rarely but when they did he was good. It didn't mess up the movie because the human action was still good. I give it a full 5 stars.
I had to watch the English dub of this but it wasn't bad. The voices sounded natural, the humans weren't boring, and the kaiju action was pretty good. The Xiliens were done well and had genuine mystery behind them. I couldn't have ever guessed how the humans would defeat them. 4 out of 5 stars.
Even if it didn't really have much of the titular character, it had decent characters and the monster fights are okay. It has the little crap named Minilla so that drags its score down. Godzilla is okay in the movie but his suit design is terrible. It made me laugh out loud one time. Godzilla shouldn't make you laugh. It should make your jaw drop with amazement and awe. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
The Kilaaks in this movie are a bit underdone. They had some potential and are pretty much just a rehash of the Xilliens. The final fight is the greatest and probably the only part worth watching. The human action in these showa movies is pretty good even with the dubbing. The Godzilla design is okay and the destruction scenes are mediocre. 4 out of 5 stars.
What can I say that hasn't already been said. It's a weird but kind of fun movie. Megalon has a laugh and looks like a cockroach-lanternfly hybrid. Gigan has scenes reused as well as Megalon and Godzilla (I think). Godzilla is okay and Jet Jaguar is awesome 3.5 out 5 stars.
This movie is okay. King Caesar has a lot of buildup and Godzilla shows up late as always except for the first fight. Mechagodzilla is pretty good and has a lot of abilities. Thankfully it doesn't any reused shots. 3.75 out of 5 stars.
Worse than its prequel, Terror of Mechagodzilla is not that good. Titanosaurus has a terrible roar, Mechagodzilla is the same thing as the last movie, and Godzilla is just an overpowered beast that gets no screen time. The plot is confusing especially with the English dub and the characters aren't that good. 3 out of 5 stars.
Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah is a movie that a lot of fans like. I like it for the most part. However, the part where M11 is running after the car is just weird and King Ghidorah's origin is just kind of lame considering the last one is where he ran around destroying planets. The last quarter of the movie I like, however. 4 out of 5 stars.
Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II has a perfect start to it building up Rodan and then revealing him with a fight against Godzilla. Mechagodzilla has an awesome looking design (in his Super Mechagodzilla form) and the fights are good, especially the first one. Five out of 5 stars.
this movie was alright in my opinion. On face value, this was about a 4.5 but when you see what SpaceGodzilla could've been, it drops down. He could've so much better. There were some designs that make him look truly alien. The real one just looks like the Super Godzilla with some crystals. The rest of the movie is fine though. 4 out of 5 stars.
Godzilla vs. Destoroyah is an almost perfect movie. It begins with one of the best pieces of Godzilla music which makes Godzilla's theme more menacing due to his transformation. This movie has good music, fights, and a really good villain kaiju in the form of Destoroyah. It has great human characters and the dub isn't complete crap like some movies. 5 out of 5 stars.
What can I say that hasn't already been said. 0 out of 5 stars.
I watched the English dub of this movie on an app called Crackle and it ruined a lot. One horrible line delivery was when Godzilla is about to kill the butt hole scientist guy who yells: "Godzilla!" before dying to a fall. Other than that, the movie also tried to do some CGI with Godzilla and failed. It looks like it was from an early PlayStation game. The characters are good (especially Yuji Shinoda). 4 out of 5 stars.
In this film, one of the most bad@$$ versions of Mechagodzilla appeared. It was a decent movie, but the main two characters are really relatable. The fight scenes are really good though. You really see the energy of Kiryu when he fights physically.
This movie is just a big fun mess. The Controller of Planet X in particular is hilarious. The only problem I see is that the many fights are very short other than one of them with Godzilla and Monster X.
This movie had terrible characters (except Serizawa) that were boring and very stereotypical with Ford Brody being the soldier coming home, Elle Brody being the girl being in peril, and Joseph Brody being the crazy conspiracy theorist. The MUTOs are a good kaiju in terms of interest and mystery. Godzilla is pretty elusive and realistic. The only problem I have with Godzilla is that he's in about 10 minutes of this 2-hour long movie. 4 out of 5 stars.
This movie was absolutely amazing. The Toho (King Ghidorah, Rodan, and Mothra) monsters were done well and they know how to treat them. The humans are okay but the monsters make up for it. The music is really good. 5 out of 5 stars.
This movie is more grounded in reality than almost any other Godzilla movie (apart from Godzilla 2014). I like how it plays out as more of a realism movie rather than another "monster brawl" as D-Man 1954 put it. They have to figure out Godzilla's origins, strengths, weaknesses, and why he evolves and mutates so fast. In the end, they do and they freeze him with a blood coagulant. The weirdly gory part of Godzilla in this movie is what gives me the chills. My favorite scenes are probably the atomic breath reveal scene and when the military takes on Godzilla for the first time in the Tama River.
This movie was decent. I don't really know what to say. It had incredible ideas that just failed in execution big time. Godzilla Filius in this movie is done right as a menacing, all-powerful god. In the middle of the movie, there is some boredom felt but that can be excused as this is the first in a trilogy so it needs to set itself in the ground. Haruo feels just a bit too edgy at times as well. The soundtrack on the movie was written very well especially in the opening sequence and when the soldiers take on Godzilla Filius and Godzilla Earth appears. 4 out of 5 stars.
This movie was a disappointment. As you can see by the poster Mechagodzilla is in it. I didn't like the design of Mechagodzilla but you can't lie that another MGvG fight would be good. Instead what we got is a love triangle (a weird one at that) in a city with guns and two harpoons that didn't do crap. At least the EMP Probes killed Godzilla Filius, but these didn't even hurt Godzilla Earth. The movie also keeps the characters the way they are and they never change (besides Haruo who was better in this movie than the first). The Bilusaludo seem like a twist villain from Disney (it's really predictable and not at all good in execution). 2 out of 5 stars.
I'm not really sure what to say about this movie. It was good, but also bad. Ghidorah is pretty much a long "Simpson Manda". Godzilla is what Godzilla should be: an invincible, unbeatable force (except for some movies where having him be able to be killed works for the movie). Haruo improved in this movie to where he's not just screaming every moment he can. Overall the movie is actually not that bad. 4 out of 5 stars.
