Kaiju Contest Winner
The Kaiju Commissioner was pleased to received some very impressive entries to this year's Kaiju Halloween costume contest. There more Cube costumes than we could tabulate, but the surprise of the year was a parade of Pedro Plantain costumes. Perhaps inspired by Pedro's recent bravery in the face of his brother's death and subsequent zombification, a host of Halloweeners sent in photos of their Plantain costumes. While all the Pedros and Cubes were worthy contenders, in the end a stellar RoBox entry was narrowly edged out by Herb and Ben's amazingly detailed Dino Kang Jr. getup. Herb & Ben, your prize pack is on the way.
In other Dino Kang news, Dr. Cube has filed suit against the heavy rock band, Max Levine Ensemble. The members, apparently huge fans of Dino Kang, dress up in Kang's honor as they rock their stringed instruments silly. The band's publicist did not respond repeated requests for comment.

Hero Intern Banished
The Hero Intern was given ample time to prove his Kaiju worth, but despite impressive performances at the Zero Hour Big Battel and at Baghdad Bunker Bash '06, the Hero-to-be was soundly beaten, completely humiliated, and 100% chumped out by Giii the Space Pirate at All Out War. Following this embarassment, the Hero Intern was stripped of his Hero helmet, gauntlets, and shiny metallic shirt and banished from Kaiju HQ. Ever since, the he has been wandering the globe searching for redemption, or at the very least a shirt of some sort. Recently the Hero Intern was spotted in Guatemala where he was attempting to trade push-ups for a local's colorful blouse. While the deal was never completed, the whole incident was captured on film.
Big Battel Thanks
