    Cool, first Kong and now this. It seems the movie monsters are popular here. I hope someone does Godzilla.

    LOVE IT! Love it love it love it!

    You KNOW this going in the Godzilla scenario! This will be the unit that will be autogenerated, und it will upgrade to Kong. I think the scenario will start with only 1 preplaced adult Kong, though.

    What is that first attack? A crotch-grab?!? I love the head shake as if trying to wake himself up, too!

    Well, the little guy DOES need to fight dirty against the other, bigger kaiju. ;)

    The texture is quite good. Once I get back, I will have to get some tips from you on unit-making.

    Nicely done. I love your new textures.
    You didn't include that cool flip you made?!?!
    I would suggest slightly faster frame rates. Just for fun I changed the run speed from 54 to 40 and it looked alot more fluid. The crotch grab looks alot more frightening at 36 then 45.
    If you ever want to re-render any of these (yes I know, not happening) I would suggest replacing the crotch grab with a head smack (either one hand or both hands together, swing straight down), and bring back the victory flip!

    You're probably right about the speed. This time, I used Civ3Flic instead of Flicster. If Civ3Flic seems to crash less, it's quite buggy with the speed animation.

    I didn't like the flip victory after a while. It was full of little glitches annoying to fix. I may try to correct and render it, but not right now.

    the "crotch grab" looks like he is flipping tanks or something...but against Ghidorah it would be a upper"crotch"cut...nice...baby Kong is a dirty fighter

    Now to compliment this set...GREAT WORK...one of the most original units to date...and I love the little head shake he does at the begining or the gif animation...

    If Supa's going to start on Godzilla, it would be out of form, given the Kong series, to not do Godzooki also. :D (Shaggy and Scrappy toooooooo!)
