What is this?

Godzilla wasn't the only daikaiju to go stomping through Asia! From Rodan and Mothra to Yongarry and Gappa, discuss other JAPANESE/ASIAN kaiju films here!

I stumbled upon there pictures while looking through Yahoo Japan.

The beetle-type creature is apparently named 'Agon', and the centipede one is called Doguma. and this film (or tv show?) was popular enough to warrent figures from X-Plus

Another company called Dream Rocket put out a slew of figures, as well as many other kaiju I have never seen before, however I am thinking half of these are fan created. Anyone?

These monsters are from Masked Ninja Red Shadow (Toei; 1967), the Batman-style superhero series set in the Samurai Age, and Toei's first tokusatsu TV series in color. Red Shadow, and his sidekicks Blue Shadow and White Shadow have faced assorted monsters on several occasions. (One monster was a modified version of Jiraiya's toad from The Magic Serpent!)

The creator of the show is none other than the late Mitsuteru Yokoyama, creator of Ironman # 28 (Gigantor) and Giant Robo (Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot)!

Oh, and those other Dream Rocket monsters, especially the one on the front page and in these sections:
http://www.dream-rocket.com/montser.html
http://www.dream-rocket.com/pegimon.html

are probably exclusive to these sets.
