I ran a Google search for pictures of Daimajin to use as reference for a drawing, it picture turned up on a couple of different sites:

http://altjapan.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/07/index.html

Again, no background is provided. I'm sure someone around here has seen it before. It looks like a magazine or book scan, but from what source I couldn't begin to guess.

These pics make me wonder why Toho never made a Godzilla vs Zombiegodzilla in the 70s.

One had a taste for nuclear reactors, the other for delicious monster brains. Which of these titans will get their fill? Coming Summer 1976. ...or something.

This is illustrated gravure from a 1960s kid's magazine. Many magazines did things like this showing a possible "strongest monster ever" using pieces of existing popular characters.

Link below is the comic book A to Z of Awesomess. Make sure to check out the letter G. I mean why would I post this here if you know who wasn't present in it?

Oh yeah, some other local favorites make it on the list too.

The title is "Here's The World's Number 1 Strongest Monster!" (circa 1966) by well-known illustrator Shuji Yanagi.

That would be the chieftain of the monsters, Geronimon.

That's correct! Godzilla's body, the right head is Geronimon, the left head is Ghidorah, the back pinchers are Antlar, the arms are Red King, the claws are Ebirah (right) and Baltan (left), the legs are Dodongo's, the wings are Mothra's.

And correct me if I'm wrong August. But I think the tail belongs to Gomess, or Godzilla (same thing).

The body is obviously Zetton's with Godzilla's head being the middle one.

Shameful, August. :P

LOL! I didn't think that I had to state the obvious to you, Jared! :P It would be funny if it were Jirass' head and Gomess' tail, though! :D

Okay, this one is (and I'm repeating some of the other's observations, so my apologies), the heads are Ghidorah, Godzilla (with Ultraman's eyes!), Kong (from KKE with Daimajin's helmet), Ragon's neck scales, Gappa's torso, Red King's arms, Baltan's claws (with Ultraman's Spacium Beam), Kemlar's backplates, Rodan's wings, Gomora's tail, above the tail are the eyes of Ganma (a monster from AKUMA-KUN), and Gamera's legs (with jet nozzles). Art is circa 1967.

Whew! :o

The writing clearly states that the legs are Gamera's...but what threw me off is that there are three toes there, while Gamera has five.

I think that the art is audacious enough to let that mistake slide, don't you think? :)

Possibly, if those feet looked anything like Gamera's. If there was no caption there I'd have no idea whose legs/feet those were.

Tsuburaya reviewing some Ultra Kaiju designs perhaps? Under Toho's dime no less.
