NEW GODZILLA MONSTER REVEALED!
Say hello to the Trilopods, the latest additions to Godzilla’s ever-extending monster list! The Trilopods are set to appear in IDW’s comic series, Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, so be sure to check that series out if you haven’t already!
At the recent Tokyo Game Show, we learned of a new character that will be appearing in the upcoming PlayStation 3 Godzilla game (simply called “GODZILLA”). Whereas Super Mechagodzilla is what you get when you combine Mechagodzilla with the Garuda, Super Kiryu is… well, you know where I’m going with this. ;)
Yeah, the Garuda appears in the game and attaches itself to Kiryu’s back if Kiryu is in danger of losing. Nicknamed “Super Kiryu”, this character technically counts as a separate character, just like MG and Super MG. It was quite the surprise. No pictures or video have surfaced online just yet, but they should really soon.
Also, please note that my interpretation of Super Kiryu isn’t entirely accurate, as the Kiryu is supposed to be based off of his 2003 “Tokyo S.O.S.” suit. But seeing as the Monsterarts isn’t out for months, I had to make do with what I had. ;)

NECA Gipsy Danger and Knifehead - Old vs. New
The differences are quite extraordinary. Improved scaling, paint, articulation, and overall accuracy. Gipsy Danger 2.0 and “Clean” Knifehead (along with Tacit Ronin and Axehead) are currently both slated for a October/November release, with Knifehead being a TRU exclusive.
GODZILLA #9 Cover by Matt Frank (ORIGINAL INKS)
Today, I present to you the original cover of GODZILLA issue #9, the series written by Duane Swierczynski and illustrated by Simon Gane (also known as Godzilla: History’s Greatest Monster). This piece was done by artist Matt Frank.
If you’re at all familiar with the series or the cover, you’ll notice a drastic difference between this piece and the final piece. As in, one of the monsters is totally different. The final piece looks like this.
Megaguirus was originally supposed to be the fourth space monster of the series, alongside Spacegodzilla, Hedorah, and Gigan. However, she was ultimately replaced by Monster X. Maybe because Monster X was able to transform into Keizer Ghidorah and all that. Also partly because Megaguirus isn’t from space, and I’m not sure if Toho would’ve been okay with that.
This would’ve been the first appearance of Megaguirus in comics. In a way, it is. Megaguirus has since appeared in Godzilla: Rulers of Earth #9, and is set to appear in future issues of ROE and Cataclysm.
All credit of course goes to Matt Frank, I just scanned it. ;)
Here are the latest NECA 7” releases. A new Knifehead, a “clean” repaint of the Battle-Damaged one, is coming out in October. And in January, we get our very first Otachi figure! It’s over 18” long and includes an interchangeable “acid spit” accessory!
