Default Kaiju Choreography

So now that I've been gainfully employed for awhile, and now hired & salaried, I can afford to customize my office desk in various juvenile ways.

Y'all can have your bobbleheads, Minions, whatever. I am now the proud owner of a (partial) set of Ultraman and his wrestling buddies (Kaiju). I got most of these via mail-order, focusing on the ones that were reasonably priced, but found one, Pigmon, at a little shop that deserves its own poast, which I'll try to remember to do later. Pigmon is one of the few human-sized Kaiju, who broke my little 6-year-old heart the first time I saw him die (1960s-era show spoiler alert). I'm still searching for some of my favorites, but so far all online sources want ridiculous amounts of money for them.

And while I'm probably better utilized (see custom tittle) than I ever have been before in my life, busy as hell but with actually meaningful work, I still have a moment here and there to do a little Kaiju choreography.

Ultraman does his best to keep the Kaiju in line, since it's his job. Some days are tougher than others.



U-man also has to handle introductions. Here, he asks the gang to welcome Telesdon, with the usual admonitions not to reject him because he's different.



Kaiju Conversation (L-Pigmon; R-Bemler; both look quite invested)



Kaiju Assistant: Ragon (foreground) is doing his best to help, but Antlar is just being a jerk. Gamora doesn't tattle, though.



More to follow.

Kaiju Reunion: Not that any of you should care, but these two guys (L-Zetton, R-Kemur, whose head looks like a rotten banana) were in both in the last episode, trying to take over the world (as you do). "Dude! It's been so long!"



Kaiju Teamwork (damn, blurrier than I thought)



Kaiju First Aid:

"Just a minute, hold still now ..."
"Owie owie owie!"
"Almost ... there! That was a nasty splinter. Run along and play now."



Kaiju Matador. 'Nuff said.

Everybody dance! :discodance: :dorkdance: :flowerdance: :waltz: :linedance:


"... I said, 'You're alien--'
It said, 'Shut up and dance with me!'"





Kaiju Tango, as wallflowers whose arms don't move that way look on in envy.




And finally, no dance poast would be complete without ...

:drumming: *drumroll*















(Added some blank space so the spoiler tag isn't COMPLETELY useless.)

I ordered a 1968-style Gojira (the cutest one :aww: ) made by the same company, Bandai. Apparently he was from a different collection, even though the vintage is essentially the same as the original U-man series (Gojira even appeared as Monster of the Week on the show, with a frill tacked on and credited as "Jiras" - I haven't seen that one online at any price).

So anyway, he's bigger. The rest of the guys got all fanboyish on him, but he was pretty gracious about it.

Gesura just arrived. No choreography yet; I'm just posting him because he's so freaking adorable.



This is the guy with a craving for cacao beans. I.e., a chocoholic.
