Godzilla Magazine Vol.4

What's that? You want MORE pictures of monsters from an obscure Japanese magazine no one really cares about? SURE! Volume 4 of Godzilla is actually filled mostly with pictures from the Toho movie Yamato Takeru, which was basically Japan's creation myth reinterpreted as an overgrown episode of Power Rangers. I didn't include many of these pics, because Yamato Takeru is a pretty bad movie. Enjoy.

Godzilla, Mecha Godzilla, and a bunch of giant humans hit a bucket full of rice glutten with hammers to celebrate the new year... really.

Cooking with Godzilla and Miss Namikawa from Invasion of the Astro Monster
Incase you're wondering, that's the 8 headed dragon Orochi in Godzilla's mouth in the last panel. Also, Godzilla gets mad because he can't hold a knife... even though he has claws that could cut steel.

Godzilla Vs. Giant Kitty

I find the pic of Baragon and Moguera digging their way up oddly prophetic. Moguera (a mole themed robot from the 1957 movie The Mysterians) returned as a good guy in Godzilla Vs. Space Godzilla (1994). Baragon (first appearance in Frankenstein Conquers the World, 1965) returned in Godzilla, Mothra King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack(2001). Meanwhile, the Chrysler Bulding-fisted Megalon remained burried in obscurity.

Wires: the real reason Biollante never appeared in another movie.

Screw you guys, Imma go read Gabara Magazine.

Pay tribute to the rich history and culture of glorious Nippon! BUY MORE TOYS!
