Featured Kaiju: Titanosaurus

titanosaurus1

One of two antagonists in the film Terror of Mechagodzilla, Titanosaurus is not to be confused with the real dinosaur bearing the same name.  In the movie, a mad scientist named Mafune gains control of Titanosaurus, with the help of the Black Hole Aliens, after it attacks a submarine investigating the remains of the destroyed Mechagodzilla. Dr. Mafune rebuilds Mechagodzilla, and with both monsters under control, begins his revenge on humanity. Godzilla creams Mechagodzilla and then blasts Titanosaurus with his atomic ray.Titanosaurus then tumbles off a cliff into the sea.

Titanosaurus’ weapon is creating a huge winds by waving his tail, and even using it to cause boat-destroying whirlpools in the ocean. Not much help against an atomic ray, though.

I like this costume because of the head built high up above the shoulders. Most of these kaiju monsters have chunky little necks and, consequently, the actors’ head right inside the monster’s head, so it’s nice to see the head up a bit higher than normal.
