#kingjoe #mysterywomen Appearing first in the form of four ships, King Joe was sent by the Alien Pedan as their main weapon to conquer Earth. The four ships first appeared attacking and destroying a submarine as they alerted an SOS to the Ultra Garrison came. Before the Ultra Garrison arrived (along with a mysterious woman in tow, who would soon be revealed to be working for the Pedan Aliens) went onto the harbor, they were too late.The four ships then arrived at a U.N. Embassy, where they soon rejoined to reveal King Joe's true form. #ceramics #kaiju #super7
#spoileralert #pigmon While most creatures within the expedition to the Lawless Monster Zone were vicious, Pigmon was not. The diminutive beast helped the injured sole survivor by giving him food, and led the SSSP to him when they arrived on the island. When Red King attacked, Pigmon distracted the creature while the Science Patrol escaped, but Red King killed Pigmon by causing a landslide with a huge rock, crushing him to death. @super7store June 10th!
#nerdalert When a ancient egg was dug up in a construction site, MAT was called to the scene to dispose of the egg but with no success, after one of the members shot it with a ray gun, he declared it an oddly shaped rock. As MAT left to deal with Gudon, the egg was buried again by the construction crew. Shortly after, the egg increased into near kaiju size and erupted from underground in the middle of the Tokyo. Soon enough, the egg hatched and revealed the monster Twin Tail!!!! #twintail #kaiju #ceramics #super7
Hmmmm. So working like crazy since Asia return... let me get sappy for a sec... I feel so lucky to travel and meet people all over the world that change perspectives and expand thinking... on top of that I feel super lucky that I connected with a medium that literally drives me. I had no idea that me and ceramics would be a love to last 4eva...so happy we both swiped left(or right?). #ceramics #kaiju
“Kaiju” is literally translated as “monsters” in Japanese, if you don’t known by now, of course … and NO, I will not judge you if you didn’t - it’s All Good In Da Boyhood :)
