Monster Discussion #38: Titanosaurus

Postby JVM » Fri Dec 31, 2010 11:37 am

Hard to find good pics of this guy...

I like Titanosaurus for what he is. A simple dinosaur under alien mind control. He's a nice T&C fighter.

Expensive? Psh. It's like $40. That's cheap.

Titanosaurus is a personal favorite of mine. He's got a really cool design and I don't find his roar annoying. I like his backstory of a peaceful dinosaur being forced to work for evil. Makes him a bit tragic. Plus, it's cool the Showa Mechagodzilla got a sidekick. Gives Godzilla a run for his money.

One of my favorite monsters. A basic monster, but he has a fantastic design. I really hope that he resurfaces one day.

I will send if I see him for less than $50, but these days I don't spot him much at all :/

Such an awesome monster, he has a roar that stands out and you'll never forget it. The last Showa monster, he was just all around cool. One of my favorites.

Muruchi, a monster from Ultraman Jack.

What others called happiness simply did not bring me joy.

Haven't gotten around to UM Jack yet considering I'm still trying find subs for UltraSeven. Not sure what exactly he has to do with Titanosaurus other than a very vague resemblance.

Well, Lamango also thinks Gigan ripped off Dorako...

I think the first Muruchi's death WAS tragic.

That was the second Muruchi actually, which appeared in the 4th series UM Ace.. The first one appeared just one series before in UM Jack

Titanosaurus is more like Murcuhi than JJ is like Ultraman

Dear god, so he's the kaiju from that gruesome clip from Ace? I knew I had seen him somewhere before.

Titanosaurus is a criminally underused monster. Good daikaiju from a good movie.

The death of that one character was more gruesome. Muruchi got what was coming to him.

I like Titanosaurus. For a papier mache monster, he looked awesome. :)
