Monster of the Day #868

As noted yesterday, Turtle Boy goes to the underwater kingdom of a wee girl fairy princess (or something). She has her own magic pet, who looks vaguely familiar somehow. Note the girl provides a sense of scale for the beastie. Neat!

    The princess of MU, the early years. The guys never calls, never says ‘hey’…is it any wonder she hates the surface world?

  • Manda never pops up enough, you know that? He’s not up there with Gigan and Rodan as being criminally underused, but he’s up there.

    Wish I had a good ‘Dragon Lady’ joke…

    That’s Manda, isn’t it? Never thought he’d have a second career after ‘Atragon’ and those 1-2 other Toho flicks he cameod in

    I’m curious why you think Rodan is criminally underused. Is that just a favorite of yours? I feel similarly about Gigan, but after King Ghidorah and Mechagodzilla (5 apiece) I think it’s had more appearances than any other villainous monster; so I imagine I just feel that way because I like it so much. In fact, Rodan also has five (six if you count his cameo in vs. Megalon) plus a title role.

    Having said that, I would have liked more Manda, especially its original appearance (the version in DAM just looks odd). It’s got two Godzilla movies and Atragon, but none of those appearances are much more than extended cameos so it’s not quite the same.
