From :iconkaijuden:

Some new tidbits from the world of giant monsters, so I'm going to go through these as quickly as possible. And let the posted videos speak for themselves.

But first, some quick announcements:

I've started a poll to decide the subject for the October 2014 Kaijuden art jam. Please place you vote among the five ‘spooky’ Kaiju selected HERE.

And I will be attending the artist alley of Power Morphicon 2014 this coming weekend, of the 22nd-24th. So if you're in the Los Angeles / Pasadena area, and are able to attend, come on down and say hi. More information on the event can be found HERE.

Also, the following artists :iconralphbear: and :iconghostwalker2061: are seeking commission work. So hit them up if you’re interested. OR simple spread the their commission news on your respective ends.

Hi Enshohma,

Remember me? I'm still not a man. Still love the Bruce Lee suit from Challenge of the Tiger,  and that masterpiece tribute to Ray Harryhausen.

When I'm done running ideas through the mental blender CURSE YOU! I'll respectfully request some commissioned pieces. I'd like your help bringing some of my family's running jokes to life.

You're never going to let the whole gender thing go, are you?

Hello Gaitie, its awesome to see you on DeviantART. And will be up to doing some commissions for you in the near future. Possibly in September, at the latest.

Right now, I'm desperately trying to get some convention prints done for a Power Ranger convention, and at the last minute I might add.

I'll be way more talkative, come Tuesday. And will reply to your recent private message in turn!

Ok...So I have been looking at this for some time now....and still don't know how I feel about it. I mean it's great and all to see COV and Melba back in some form. And the Dyna crab thing...though they sort of slapped one of his claws on the head prop.

Idk, I have a lot of thoughts on it...but I rather hear someone else's opinion on it, so I will know if I am just being too harsh or cynical on the design.

My personal thoughts on Five King:

I'd rather have all these monsters return individually, and not a big fan of the current state of the Ultra franchise either, let alone tokusatsu in general. BUT...

Of all the amalgam Kaiju done in Ultraman, Five King here is one of the better looking ones. I love the unified coloring of red and gold. And the whole 'Roman armor motif' works quite well I think. And it is nice to see mostly Heisei Ultra Monsters being represented here, which is a nice change of paste from overexposure of Showa-era ones. Especially as it's the Showa monsters that supposedly sell more 

Still though, a nice design might be undermined by a weak performance and limited screen time. And Five King might be underwhelming like the monsters from "Ultraman Saga".

Hopefully it will not be a limited screen time. But I do love that Melba skull cap :)
