TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA / Toho / Saperstein - 1975

Welcome everbloody to Monster Monday wif' Tabonga, here at The Dungeon... Tonite we gots a wild and wooly flick that we haven't even reviewed yet, hard to believe! In this, yet another Toho/Saperstein adventure, Godzilla comes to the rescue when an alien race rebuilds Mechagodzilla in order to destroy the Earth. Also, a traitorous Japanese scientist gives them control over a second monsterous weapon: Titanosaurus.

The music was composed by the most awesome, Mr. Akira Ifukube. Here's a little reminder of some other titles he worked on... GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS, RODAN, THE MYSTERIANS, BATTLE IN OUTER SPACE, DAREDEVIL IN THE CASTLE, TOUGH GUY, ATRAGON, MOTHRA vs GODZILLA, DAGORA, THE SPACE MONSTER, FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD, KING KONG ESCAPES, WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS, LATITUDE ZERO and YOG: MONSTER FROM SPACE!

Hey, look over there!.. No, to the left... Buzzing around the big red 'GO' button... See it? That's our littlest of all Dungeon pals, Rufus The Gnat! Yay for Rufus!.. Anywhere, he's here to push that big red 'GO' button, there, and start today's Eariffic Earclip for the... TERROR OF MECHA-GODZILLA!

There are some flashbacks at the beginning from the original meeting of the two a year earlier in GODZILLA vs MECHAGODZILLA. Here, Big G's getting his nails ground down by the spinning Mecha G!

As a bonus, there's a cool rocket submarine that gets thrown into the mix!

The alien toasts the vengeful Dr. Mafune and their devious plan to destroy planet Earth, as we know it!

The doctor has plans to control Titanosaurus to the peril of the foolish Earthlings, because, they refused to believe in it's existence! He'll show them!!

They make their way to the alien command and control center, secretly located below ground.

Great costumes, miniatures and composite shots! With these Japanese classics, damn, you always get your money's worth!!!!

This is Katsura Mafune, robot daughter of the doctor, killed in an experiment and brought back to life as a cyborg by the aliens...

What, are you stupid? Right there!.... Where??

At the sight of Titanosaurus heading their way, the sub fires up it's rocket engines for a quick getaway... Hang on, Scooby, we're outta here!

If you were a robot, you'd probably find this highly erotic!

The two big bad boys hit the town, hard!

Here's Big T's money shot! Too bad this is a full screen print!

This one has some of the very best Big Time Wrassling moves you'll ever want to see!.. Yee-haw!!

Everbloody wants to get into the act!! Hot cha cha cha cha!

When he's out of finger missiles, well, he just uses his electric ray!

The battle keeps going back and forth until Big-G finally rips Mecha-G's head off!..

Hey Mike, are you accusing Tabonga of stealing your copy?

Even odder, my copy just appeared on my shelf one day, seemingly from nowhere!
