ushering in an age of darkness

Very nice! It really nails the "old god who once plagued the earth" look.

I was also thinking this

I was also thinking this thing reminded me of something outta Lovecraft. Anyway, it's an interesting enough monster design and the toy, I'm sure, is just fine...but overall, these over-detailed, non-humanoid monsters are getting a little too generic for me. Like, this monster could have been the Cloverfield monster...or the monster from any number of other Hollywood summer blockbusters.

They all start to look the same to me.

Of course, you could argue the same thing about the man-in-suit variety of kaiju from 60's and 70's...but I just never lose my fondness for those simple, fun designs. While my jaded soul doesn't get the "AAAAAHHH!!!" effect from this monster, I still get geek-chills when Mechagodzilla opens up with all his weapons against Godzilla and King Shisa!!

Here's why this couldn't be the Cloverfield monster

Sanjeev, allow me to show you the magic.
Look at the bottom set of pincers...that is to say, look at that pair of boots masquerading as pincers.

On a seperate note, it's a shame that they obscure the feet Rob Liefeld-style in that battle sequence, but it looks like that suit is too butt-heavy to move around in much anyway.

I didn't see them at first,but now I can't unsee them. Japanese special effects are so awesome.

Hahaha, the boots are

Hahaha, the boots are AWESOME! Bandai easily could have glossed over that detail and made them more claw-like, but they didn't.... faaantastic!

Ultra Man

Does anyone remember the Ultraman show that was on American TV about 20yrs ago? Also, loved the Ultraman video game for the SuperNES, I remember having to kick some monster dude in the head about 100 times to kill him... classic.

Looks like a mutant hybrid of an ammonite, Destroyah, and Legion from one of the 90's Gamera movies.
