My God, if you took the worst parts of Dagnar, Velokron, Doragoris, Gabara, and Birdon, stitched them together, and grafted Mothra wings onto the resulting abomination, you'd get something less ridiculous than this.
And I f*ing love this. LONG LOVE GOLF KAIJU MULIGAHN!!!
Behold the mighty Muligahn... Lord and master of all things golf!
This is amazing and I must thank you for bringing such a magnificent creation to life. I am and will always be a hardcore kaiju fan, but I can most certainly appreciate a bit of humor among all the building-smashing. Bravo!
I LOVE it!!!! I'm really looking forward to this game's release! So many different: cool, fun, scary, and goofy creatures! Really adds depth, and makes this into a really fun and unique fighting game! Excellent Job Matt, don't let them tell you otherwise!!!
Okay, I usually can't stand purely joke monsters, but when the design is this well done, not to mention quite menacing, it surpasses the silly source concept. Plus I'm a long time fan of Super Sentai and Power Rangers, and Muligahn is leagues above similar 'furniture heads' from those aforementioned franchises.
With that said however, the character's actual back story is pretty dumb - had Muligahn been a golf course brought to life, through 'Kaiju magic', or some elemental Earth beast that simply uses a golf course as its body, I'd be totally behind this character as pure brilliance!
But golf, the human made sport itself, being an ancient element of magic from the universe's beginnings? Yeah...I have the sneaking suspicion that the actual person who created Muligahn did it as a flippant gag (i.e. Mecha Death Jesus from various internet memes). While a more talented artist (Matt Frank) probably did the design independently, with some notes from the former person.
