Monster of the Day #737

Man, there are so many great shots like this, the problem is not putting up a hundred of them.

  • Flangepart

    He puts his best rubber foot forward.
    Nice pics, Ken-san.

  • Gamera977

    These I have not seen before, great photos and great find Ken.

  • David Fullam

    Got to met Nakajima San at Mad Monster Party. A moment I will never forget.

    Does anyone know if that model of the castle still exists? I bet it would be worth a fortune these days.

    So, the Godzilla attacks on Japan are a Hoax? Probably staged just to gain sympathy after the war.

  • Eric Hinkle

    What’s going on in that one picture with Godzilla, King Kong, and a Shinto priest?

  • Ken_Begg

    The priest performed a purification ceremony prior to production beginning.

  • Eric Hinkle

    What, seriously? If it helped the movie in anyway, then maybe the Asylum — heck, all of Hollywood, — could bring in a few Shinto priests and mikos to purify /their/ productions.

  • Rock Baker

    That’s just wonderful stuff.

  • Flangepart

    Godzilla, King Kong and a Shinto priest walk into a sushi bar…

  • bgbear_rnh

    last picture: do I have a light? Oh boy do I have a light.

  • Eric Hinkle

    “Sorry I stared, but we don’t get a lot of kaiju in here!”

    “At these prices I’m not surprised!” BA-DUM-TISH! Thank, thank you, I’ll be here all week and hey, remember to try the veal.

    I’m assuming those last two feature Inoshiro Honda. I had no idea he was 600 ft. tall!

    These are truly incredible shots- thanks, Ken.

  • The Rev.

    That’s actually Eiji Tsuburaya, ostensibly checking out his handiwork to make sure everything’s ready to roll before filming.

    I hadn’t seen most of these today, unlike yesterday. Good stuff.

  • MrTongoRad

    Aah- that makes a lot of sense. Thanks a lot.
