Food. Polymer clay food. There's a strange fascination between polymer clay crafters to make food, if you ask many of us won't even be able to explain what's so addictive about making fake food. Some of it is crafted for doll houses and doll props, some people make beautiful jewelry with food, but some just make it because it's so incredibly fun.

A batch of stuff was just released into the eBay store which I heartily recommend you bid on. I've posted about Daikon before, but I'll keep repeating it for those that don't know. The picture above comes from a batch of commissions that he mentions in the blog. Daikon's occasionally open for commissions through the eBay store.

So what is everyone's thoughts on the trailer? I have my own ideas and believes about it, but I will keep shut on that...until everyone else tells me what they think first. Don't want to really influence anyone's opinion.

Talk-Back: Gamera's 50th Anniversary2014 was a surprisingly good year for Kaiju.Talk-Back: Gamera's 50th Anniversary4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Say what you will about Legendary Pictures' "Godzilla". But if there was one thing we can all agree on, that it got a lot of the non-fans on board with the character of Godzilla himself. As opposed to a distant respect (like in the wake of the 1998 film), or some bizarre (possibly xenophobic) repulsion against even 'getting' the basic concept to begin with.
Seriously, after the "Godzilla" screening was over in my local cinema, I was transported to some strange world of opposites, where I was mulling over the film's weaknesses, while all around me, the so-called 'normals' were falling in love with the King of the Monsters.

It's a new year so it's time for the annual Guardians membership drive / update. This is done, in part, to create awareness of the team for the new members of the Angel Falls group.
Those who are current members of the Guardians, please send me a note if you want to continue to be a part of the team. If you want to change your role (Active / Support) you may do so as well.
Anyone on the current roster who does not respond by 1/8/14 will be removed from the team.
If you are not a part of the Guardians, and would like to be, please contact me via note with your character(s) and the role they would like.
The Active roster are the ones who are the first responders and their membership is known to the public at large.

Any new members of the Guardians will be tagged with the "Probationary" label. I don't think there are any h
Obscure Kaiju: Gunbot the Armored RobotFor our very own :iconmrtrainfreak12: who loves live-action giant robots.Obscure Kaiju: Gunbot the Armored Robot4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes, an Obscure Kaiju is just a brand new character who simply needs some love and attention.
Although in his 70’s when he passed away earlier this month, special effects director Koichi Kawakita was still very active, through both tokusatsu filming, published books on the Godzilla series, and through his company Dream Planet Japan.
Kawakita was also an active teacher of tokusatsu film-making at Osaka University, which resulted in the students and local actors to come together to create the independent television series "Gunbot: The Armored Robot” (original air date: 11/7/2014)
I don’t not much at this point, but this low-budget, yet equally well executed series involves an alien invasion of crab-like robots sent by aliens from The Valent Star System. And the Japanese defense force responds with their mechanical combat giant, Gunbot to fend off the
Obscure Kaiju: MongaMy plans for yet another giant primate didn't pan out. So instead, here’s a Kaiju from the Gamera series, that you probably never knew existed!Obscure Kaiju: Monga4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Because he never did to begin with!
Monga (also known as Mosoga) is the bull horned, blue-skinned beast seen at the top half of those creature designs. And was planned to appear in 1969’s ”Gamera vs Guiron”, but was cut due to budgetary reasons.
Seeing that Monga is a totally different character from Guiron, and considering the circumstances behind his axing from the final film, it’s very likely that Monga is the legendary ’Terra Monster’, mentioned in articles surrounding ”Gamera vs Guiron”.
As you might know, the plan was to have a new species of monster overwhelming the dying planet of Terra. But to save time and money, the filmmakers took the old Gyaos suit, and simply painted it silver; rechristening the results as Space Gyaos.
Obscure Kaiju: Hades Goddess GorgonSnake Day continues here at Obscure Kaiju Month!Obscure Kaiju: Hades Goddess Gorgon4 months ago in Personal More Like This
And if Hades Goddess Sphinx is the kind of giantess Kaiju you bring home to mother, than our current subject is the kind you...well...don’t.
Hades Goddess Gorgon from the series ”Mahou Sentai Magiranger” (2005-2006), is the other lone female member of The Infershia Pantheon; ten naturally born giant generals of the demonic underworld of Infershia. And who are second only in power and strength to their supreme tentacled overlord, N.Ma (an obvious Cthulhu homage).
But whereas Sphinx was a wise and honorable member of the Pantheon, Gorgon is devious and selfish femme fatale.
Although she could hold her own in combat, Gorgon prefers to manipulate (or intimidate) some of the other male members of The Infershia Pantheon, to do her dirty work. Like the childish glutton Ha
Obscure Kaiju: World's Strongest MonsterMinor update, but one that will no doubt throw most of you for a loop.Obscure Kaiju: World's Strongest Monster4 months ago in Personal More Like This
This weird looking 'combination creature' and related illustration is entitled World's Number One Strongest Monster, and was painted by Japanese pulp artist Shuji Yanagi apparently in 1966.
And I say apparently, due to the fact that a lot of the elements used in this strange hodgepodge of various Japanese monsters, appear to have been taken from characters that appeared after that year; like Geronimon and Zetton from "Ultraman" latter half in 1967.
I don't know where this illustration first debut. But as mentioned previously, Japanese magazines and books, both back then and even today, loved creating their own scenarios with existing Kaiju properties.
Including totally original monster creations (as shown above), crossovers battles that never occurred in the films or television shows proper, and otherwise human-sized monsters, being pumped up to true city-crushing heights.
Obscure Kaiju: Gamera vs PhoenixGoing to have to bring out the big guns, to make up for a week of no Obscure Kaiju updates.Obscure Kaiju: Gamera vs Phoenix4 months ago in Personal More Like This
And since Gamera’s 50th anniversary is happening in 2015, might as will share a couple of his lesser known endeavors, which is saying a lot, considering how overlooked the fire-breathing turtle is, when compared to Godzilla’s eternal popularity.
It’s true, that we haven’t heard anything from the new Gamera film, supposedly still in the works. And thus, it was very easy for Godzilla’s return to Japanese movies to basically one up Gamera’s big birthday plans...
But then my cynical self starts up, and I doubt that even if there is a major Gamera announcement coming, fans the world over will probably be more obsessed on how spiky Godzilla dorsal fins are going to be in his 2016 adventure.
I know its the day after Christmas, but so what? My cynicism rules all!

Obscure Kaiju: YagosuThe following guy is so obscure, that I only discovered him on some long defunct tumblr by chance!Obscure Kaiju: Yagosu5 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Daikaiju Yagosu" (or as best as I could translate it) appears to be an original manga or story book from the 1960's, featuring a crustacean-type monster. And with a bulging-eyed face that only a mother could love.
And that's all I know about Yagosu, as again, its that obscure!
However, I will say that The Golden Age of Japanese Monsters, or the 'Kaiju Boom' of the 1960's, went far beyond film and television.
Resulting in original Kaiju being created for comics, books, magazines, toys, board games, bromide cards, record albums, and advertising. There was even renewed interest for Yokai mythology (SEE Shigeru Mizuki), and imported movie and television monsters from America, and elsewhere!
With Yagosu here, being only a small part of this long past decade of giant monster mania.
Time for a civics lessonI don't know how many people that watch me have been paying attention to current events but recently there was a decision in the case in Ferguson, MO of the shooting death of Michael Brown by a police officer. The case was reviewed by a grand jury that voted not to proceed to a standard trial. Some people are calling this a travesty of justice however I'm going to tell you why it isn't.Time for a civics lesson5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here's how a grand jury works, since it's nothing like the jury that gets put together for the actual courtroom trial. There will be the occasional assumption from me based on the differences in the process between what I went through and what it sounds like they did for this specific case.
The selection process: They draw a pool of potential candidates from people around the county as the jury pool, from that pool they whittle it down to 12 people, that's how it went for me and the process is probably similar in Missouri. For me it took a few hours during the morning you w
