    With Ohio going under a stay-at-home order at 11:59 tonight, I was looking for something fun to do over the next two weeks. Dug out this old TV Magazine supplement that illustrates kaiju anatomy. Since there are 14 kaiju, I'll post one every day and, bang, there's your two weeks. Hope you like 'em.
    P.s. I might start a thread for our Tsuburaya kaiju enthusiasts, but I don't think I have any anatomy for them.

    That MG is one of the best yet. If I had any complaint it would just be that you can't make out the pilot/brain on it (I assume this is '74 incarnation, I am just being difficult :razz: ).

    Well, ran out of images from that other set. Let's try this.
    When you redeemed your Popy KingZaurus footprint stickers, this is what you received (there was also a book for chogokin collectors).

    It has lots of color photos and specs on Toho and Tsubu kaiju and a center section with games and fun things like this map of where kaiju are located:

    A couple more images from this book to come.

    Equally as fun. Thanks Mark! Although the use of the Japan (and surrounding area) map as a backdrop does not seem quite utilised to its full extent. :lol:

    Could I be more pleased? No. I Could not.

    Thanks so much for the run of posts, Mark! Sad to see it come to a close, but I'm sure that you'll have accumulated a wonderful stack of additional new-to-you paper magic by the time the next plague hits. Cheers, neighbor!
