Godzilla vs Brompton

i'll start.

it's well known that the brompton is really a brilliant piece of engineering. the brompton wide range hub is truly wonderful. nothing can really beat the brompton for multi-modal commuting.

on the other hand, Godzilla is really friggin' huge and has been known to eat trains.

discuss..

Godzilla came down pretty hard on Bambi.

prefer the Original Toho productions , or the revival one with CG effects, done in '98?


looks like theres another one due 2014..

Hopefully they'll always be at odds because if they should join forces, Godzilla riding a Brompton would mean total devastation to the world as we know it. Our only hope for salvation would then be if Ghidora could get past it's penchant for a fast fold and team up with Bike Friday.

But as it stands I would side with Brompton because although Godzilla is known for mashing, the Brommie would kill Godzilla's knees up hill.

Far easier to just nippon a Brompton for short distances.

Brompton will win. A Brompton will be able to ride circles around Godzillas legs and take him down with a wire....just like the AT-AT being taken down in Empire Strikes Back. Godzilla probably can't see his feet.

As I already mentioned on another thread today, everyone knows Brommies are about zombies.

Not always
https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0120685/synopsis
but trust Hollywood to screw around with a plot.

Bring back the subtitled, B&W reels of a man in a rubber suit rampaging through a cardboard Tokyo, that's what I say!

the '98 version of the Film, the Gender-bending was established, as being asexual..
each hatchling is born pregnant, with the eggs of the next generation, already fertilized..
