    According to federation reports, the Mugato only changes color when Starfleet personnel enter the atmosphere.

    Are those supposed to be fangs?  Also, is he making that “heavy metal” hand gesture?

    Lol, I saw the horn and was thinking- ‘the rare black Mugato’???

    If Fu Manchu was a gorilla.

    I don’t want to here any British dental care jokes

  • Color me stumped, but also color me intrigued!

  • What is this? Something from a Tarzan movie?

  • Ken_Begg

    It’s Mammoth Kong, a monster from an old Japanese TV show called Gekko Kamen.

  • Thanks, Ken! And I can now see yet another reason to wish the Japanese spoke English as their first language. (Not that I really needed any more convincing, Megaloman pretty much had me.)

  • The Rev.

    Just looking at it, I knew it was from a Japanese television show, but I’ve never heard of this one.  Now I am intrigued.

    The best thing about the show is that in some shots they use marionettes as normal people to make Mammoth Kong look big. You don’t see that very often.
