    Mecha-G is alight with me. However, in this current Monster-verse time-line, the current technology doesn't appear to be advanced enough to support the sudden appearance of a Mecha-Anything. My thinking is if they did have that technology then why haven't we already seen appearances of smaller Mecha's first, yes?

    Unless, G/KK take place in the distant future?

    The fans want the throat stuffing scene again. As A Gz fan I want to see it! I remember it being a particularly savage move on Kong's part to warn him not to try that fire-breath again. This sounds even better.

    Is it weird that I'm looking forward to Shin Ultraman more than Godzilla vs Kong? I mean, I'm still excited for the film, but I've seen three big theatrical Godzilla movies in the last decade and seeing a big budget Ultraman feature just seems more exciting to me?

    Of course, there have been several seasons of Ultraman TV shows in that same time timeframe, but they're so beholding to pushing whatever toy gimmick they have that year that it gets in the way of storytelling. Seeing Ultraman done in a straightforward manner without that concession is just... I'm really excited about it!

    There hasn't been a buzz worthy, huge Ultraman release like this in A LONG TIME. And the person doing it just delivered one of the best Godzilla's of all time, so I get the hype.

    In quasi news:

    - WB/Legendary/Toho have re-upped the Rodan and Mothra trademark share. Most people think it's only for toys but it opens the door.
    - WB/Legendary/Toho have quietly worked out a trademark share for MechaGodzilla about 6 months ago.
    - WB/Legendary/Toho have quietly worked out a trademark share for another property but nobody knows what it is yet.
    - There's a new Skull Crusher toy and a flying Titan labled Quetzalcoatl. There's a third titan toy labeled "Mega Godzilla" which is the rumored Mecha G in cloned Ghidorah skin.
    - Toy images are back. 1. 2. 3. 4.

    Man, watching Return of Ultraman for the first time (the Blu-ray dropped this week) and it's just a smorgasbord of Kaiju goodness. This was the show that kicked off the second "Kaiju Boom" in the early seventies where for a few years multiple TV networks in Japan we're airing dozens of shows featuring giant alien or robot heroes battling giant monsters. If you've never watched an Ultra show before, but are a big Kaiju fan I'd say the first four shows (Ultra Q, Ultraman, Ultraseven, Return of Ultraman) are essential viewing. They were just as influential as any Godzilla or Gamera movie to the genre.

    ^ that's from a movie based on a popular Japanese comic book about a family living in Tokyo in the 50s. The dad's hair going crazy when he's angry is a visual element from the comic. This clip is from the opening of the second movie (Always 2), and it's a dream sequence that alludes to the fact that this film is set right around when the original Godzilla movie came out.

    Since it's a dream sequence I suppose they thought they could get away with the crazy comic hair? I don't know if they do that anywhere else in the movie!

    This clip was actually a big deal when it came out, because at this point the Godzilla series had gone on hiatus and this was a rare use of the character by Toho, and the first time the character was brought the life entirely with computer animation. We all wondered if it was a test or something. And, of course, people tried to pass off the clip as a teaser for a brand new movie.
