Godzilla vs Megalon! Finished up my newest Godzilla print. I’ve been really wanting to do this one for a very long time and now it’s done. I had originally intended to add in the title of the movie but it worked better without it. I change the background to be more eye catching and added in the Seatopia idol over on the bottom right. I’ll have these prints at Wizard World Austin, November 22-24th. You can stop by the Nightmare Pro Wrestling booth #B56 and pick one up. Or if you don’t feel like waiting, get one right now in my shop!

- The exact origin of “Gigan” is not clear. There is a Japanese word (義眼; gigan) that means “artificial eye”. However, it is pronounced as “gi-gan”, not “gai-gan”.
- In the Showa movies, Gigan was an alien cyborg. Yet in Godzilla: Final Wars, Gigan was an ancient evil being and Mothra’s nemesis.
- Gigan actually allied with Godzilla for a brief period in Godzilla Island. Dororin (Kumasogami in Yamato Takeru) shapeshifted into Gigan at one point.
- On the promotional posters for Godzilla vs. Gigan, Gigan emitted a laser from its eye and forehead area. This was not actually seen in a movie until Final Wars.
- Gigan appeared in the tokusatsu television series Zone Fighter (or Ryuusei Ningen Zone).
- Gigan’s sound effect is used for the character Mele in Juuken Sentai Gekiranger.
