Growing up, I lived down the street from Tentacle Bowl (seen in the link on his visit to Hong Kong). Nice guy, I mowed his lawn a few times. He really went all out come Halloween.

These are great. Good to see the tradition is still alive.

The source site has even more, including some lower resolution playing card scans.

Someone came across a similar set. The source forum is devoted to Kaiju, or Strange Beasts. I fear this is a new rabbit hole to days of distraction.

These are artifacts from a far more interesting dimension.

These are AWESOME! The ones FTL linked are so clearly thinly disguised Ultraman kaiju.

And then. And then! FTL shows me the light of an English language kaijuphile forum!
