Are we sure this is concept art from 1965... ?

"Concept Art" was a poor choice of words to use on my part... It's more like an illustrated demonstration of how the ears could've worked. But I'll switch it to "Illustration" instead. (Also, missed how the artist was credited! Will note them as well.)

The gigantic blog banner on the main page is an absolute eyesore and I think I've missed about three consecutive site updates because of it.

Late reply on my part but if it's not official production art why even include it?

It made for a nice visual for the unused ear function, with the bonus of being drawn by someone with Toho history - the art itself originating from a Godzilla "encyclopedia" published under Toho's supervision. While not official, it's not throwaway fanart! It's kind of like how we use unofficial production art for certain monsters in the Cutting Room.

Plus, ear-folding Baragon was just too precious not to share :)

I don't know if this is where to put this or if this error is just me, but the Blog section at the top of the main site doesn't have any pictures when I'm pretty sure it's supposed to. It's been like this for, I think, a week now.

I'm also curious, does anybody even like it? It just looks... ugly and makes me miss how the main site used to look.

Not like that for me (I can still see pictures) but I absolutely agree that it looks terrible on the main page. I get that it's to try and promote the section but it's an eyesore regardless.

Actually, I think when I last tried opening the main site in Microsoft Edge, the pictures were giant! Worked fine in Chrome and Firefox, though.

Okay so...I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but I can't seem to find any of the older articles using this new Blog page. The only way I can actually find any of the older stuff is to go through the numbered pages on the bottom.

This...this is awful. This is such a downgrade from the previous way the Articles were formatted. I get that it looks more like a Blog now than before, but it also looks so much more bland. I miss the old header image with the Photoshopped newspapers and the sidebar where you could easily access all of the Article Projects. The Articles + Blog section is just lifeless now.

Right the main site does not list the Swamp Locust and Magma Turtle in the comic monsters bios, and the reviews even say they don't show up. That's not entirely true.

The Magma Turtle show up in issue 2 of Skull Island: The Birth of Kong, next to the ship.

and the Swamp Locust shows up in issue 3 of Skull Island: The Birth of Kong.

Image


Also I have a couple questions.

1. I've noticed that the bios for the monsters and weapons are being updated such as Battra and the Type 66 Masers. Will this include the Showa Ultraman and Heisei Gamera?

2. Would Showa Ultraman and Heisei Gamera monsters get a Monster Analysis or is that exclusively for monster made by Toho?

EDIT:

So Heisei Godzilla (Supercharged) has a length of 200 meters according to this screen shot from Godzilla vs Mothra 1992.

Image

Also according to the PS3/PS4 Godzilla game Godzilla 2014's tail length is 167.74 meters. Combine this with his 108 meter height and his length should be 275.74 meters or 275.94 meters if we wanna use Legendary's ultra specific height of 108.2 meters.

On this page:
https://www.tohokingdom.com/tv/zone_fighter.htm

The last monster bio, Grotogauros, links to this page:
https://www.tohokingdom.com/aliens_sdf/ ... alien.html

...Instead of this page:
https://www.tohokingdom.com/kaiju/tv/grotogauros.htm


Also, is it intentional that the 'television' and 'anime' sections of the monster listings don't even appear on this page, except as header-links? Not even a link to the sub-page at the bottom, after 'distributed?'
https://www.tohokingdom.com/monster_bios.htm

I feel like most people won't even notice they exist (I certainly didn't, until i went looking for grotgauros' page), and that's a lot of work to go completely unnoticed by the average visitor.

Going through the IDW comic profiles I've noticed in almost every instance Dave Wachter is referred to as Watcher.

Regarding the May 6 update to Varan:

Toho's planned release of the film to home video in 1987 was met with controversy due to a small sequence that showed some of the villagers as deformed... By 1988 Toho had barely negotiated a compromise to avoid the film being banned. This compromise saw Toho edit out the footage, which has been missing in all subsequent releases of the movie.


The bolded statement may have been true when Guy Tucker wrote Age of the Gods but the deleted footage has been restored since either the 1991 Toho Video VHS release or its 1998 Laserdisc release. Everything that was cut for the initial home video release is detailed (in Japanese) here.

There's also evidence that the Japanese theatrical release was projected at approx. 2:1 instead of TohoScope's 2.35:1. TohoPanScope seems to have been a sort of Superscope process. Discussion about aspect ratio here.

Was the Toyko Shock DVD edited at all?

Every Japanese release since either 1991 or 1998 has been the uncut version. The Tokyo Shock release ported over the main feature and most of the extras from the uncut Toho DVD.

That said, however, the Tokyo Shock DVD is aggravatingly clipped short at the end of the film. You only lose about a second or so of the end title, but still, that's technically "edited," even if accidentally.

I will like to point out a typo on the main page.

*edit*

Thanks for the fix.

I think I've mentioned this before, but the movie lists could use a few major additions that no one here seems to have even noticed:

*A few Godzilla films in the four lists they appear in - Godzilla Movies, Kaiju Movies, Science Fiction Movies and Live Action Movies - are missing their U.S. titles: Godzilla Raids Again (Gigantis the Fire Monster),
Mothra vs Godzilla (Godzilla vs. the Thing, Godzilla vs. Mothra), Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster (Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster, Invasion of Astro-Monster (Monster Zero, Godzilla vs. Monster Zero (only the first title needs to be added here)), Godzilla vs. Gigan (Godzilla on Monster Island) and Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (Godzilla vs. the Bionic Monster, Godzilla vs. the Cosmic Monster)

*The title The Secret of the Telegian needs to be put in as such in these three lists: Movies, Science Fiction Movies and Live Action Movies.

*The U.S. title Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth needs to be put in as such in these three lists: Godzilla Movies, Kaiju Movies and Science Fiction Movies (it's already in as such in Movies and Live Action Movies, so that's good)

*The U.S. title Gamera 2: Attack of Legion needs to be put in as such in these four lists: Movies, Kaiju Movies, Science Fiction Movies and Live Action Movies.

*The U.S. title Tidal Wave needs to be put in Disaster Movies (it's already in Live Action Movies, so again, that's good)

*All three films in the Godzilla anime trilogy need to be put in this list: Anime Movies.

*The section title "Kaiju Movies" (instead of "Kaiju Films") needs to be put in as such in these two lists: Movies and Genres.

*The listings for the three Heisei Gamera films don't have the review for The Gamera Trilogy Blu-ray release listed in their "DVDs and Blu-ray" section and the word "Blu-ray" needs to be changed to "Blu-rays" once this is done.

If this could please be done, we'll have everything done here! Please note that I'm only doing this for the sake of both completeness and consistency. If the entire movie section and everything in it looks professional, it'll be professional.
