D.D. What next, Ken? You going to have the three iterations of Mechagodzilla as #s 58-60? Then Biollante v.1 and 2, Gigan ’70s and ’00s, and then on to the Pokemon who all have multiple forms for you to exploit? You, sir, are LAZY. Ken Begg Slow down! I’m too lazy to take notes that fast! Lawyer Ku Actually Rev, this is the prototype for the RAF de Havilland Tiger Moth. Even has the roundels. 2089Gulf Over The Rev. D.D. Hey Chris, you going to make it over here in August? Sandy Petersen WE DEMAND ALL THE FORMS OF MOTHRA! Including Metal Mothra, Space Mothra, and Prehistoric Mothra. Not to mention Mini-Mothra. IT NEED NEVER END. Gamera Mini-mothra? Is that form the size of say… a regular moth??? fish eye no miko Are you going to have Gamera, as well? /He’s full of turtle meat! John Campbell Long time reader, first time poster. Does the esteemed Rev DD dare challenge the mighty Jabootu’s choices? You sir have surely opened a Beggian sized can of Whup-Ass! Rock Baker This was probably my favorite scene in Tokyo SOS, just because they used the sunset to make the film look like old Technicolor stock. It was a sharp move and a nice nod to the fans and movie nuts. It was also a rather more classy movie than we’d been getting for a while from the series. Had they used this approach for Final Wars, maybe it wouldn’t have been such a mess. Gamera Are you going to have Gamera, as well? /He’s full of turtle meat! Hurrah for Fish Eye! More turtle love please!!! Though please eat Mothra first….. Rock Baker Variety is the spice of life. I like the Japanese stuff, but let’s not get too predictable here! TongoRad Well, that’s a really great image, at least. PB210 Mothra largely operates as a protector or benevolent monster. If you want to do (largely benevolent) monsters that would open up the list a bit: the Swamp Thing (I would recommend the suit from Return of the Swamp Thing), the Hulk, the Thing, etc. In that case, you would have to insist on ones obviously visually mutated or mutant or of a different species, and not include baseline humans such as Dexter Morgan, the Exterminator, or Paul Kersey. fish eye no miko Rock Baker said: “Had they used this approach for Final Wars, maybe it wouldn’t have been such a mess.” Final Wars would have been better if the creator’s hadn’t seen The Matrix. /there will be Godzilla in your Godzilla movie, right? Lawyer Ku “You going to make it over here in August?” Work allowing, yes. The Rev. D.D. J.C.–Welcome to the posting side of things! I fear not the Begg nor his whup-ass. Also notice he did not deny it… ;) fish eye–You’re pretty much on the money there. After seeing it, I remember saying, “He needed to decide if he was making a Godzilla movie or a mutant alien ninja movie and just stick with one or the other.” If I’d wanted a mutant alien ninja movie I’d have bought one, and I’m sure he could make a good one, but I wanted a Godzilla movie and barely got it so I was less than thrilled. Don Frye and his magnificent facial hair could only do so much. Chris–Well you just need to tell your work to let you come here already. Sheesh! Rock Baker I heard (but I can’t confirm this) that the Final Wars director made his film the way he did because Japanese audiences were complaining that the Godzilla movies had TOO MUCH monster action! If you can figure out that complaint (sort of like going to a Bond movie and going out saying there was too much spy stuff), you’ve certainly got me beaten. If I’d actually managed to get in the door on directing the Legendary Godzilla movie, I’d have wanted to go more in the direction of Godzilla 1985. Now that there’s a suit on hand, I may still make noise about it. (I don’t mind being turned down, but outright ignored is a bit rude I think.) Rock Baker On that note, AtomicStickFigure’s video of the finished suit just hit YouTube! If I know how to do this right, this should show you the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dNZn4WSBg4 Gamera Hey Rock, I finally got around to watching your brothers clips on the construction last night. WOW! Awesome job, esp. all the cool surface detail. I’d love to walk into the local Japanese restarant wearing something like that. I’d like to recommend everyone to take a look at the finished clip at least, you won’t be disappointed! Rock Baker On behalf of my brother, thanks for the kind words! Rock Baker And here’s the newspaper story on the suit (sadly, only one picture): http://harrisondaily.com/news/article_f80c9956-8649-11df-b144-001cc4c03286.html Rock Baker Couple new videos up today, showing the suit going thru its paces at the big unveiling ceremony in town. Neat stuff.
