called me last night and forced me into his usual "Hey! Hey! HEY. GUESS WHAT?"
"Just tell me."
"NO. You have to guess!"
"*sigh* Is it something to do with Godzilla or Ultraman?"
"If I told you that would give it away!"
Anyway, the operative point is that the special guests for this year's G-Fest have been announced!
First up is Akira Takarada, star of GOJIRA, MONSTER ZERO and a number of other kaiju classics. Apparently his visit in 2010 was so much fun for him that he's decided to come back!
Secondly, and most surprisingly, is Bin Furuya! Don't know who he is? YOU SHAME YOUR FANDOM. Just kidding. He's the suit actor for the original Ultraman! He even made a little cameo in ULTRA GALAXY LEGENDS as one of the original inhabitants of M-78 before the whole thing got Ultra-fied. Definitely gonna' have to make a print for that one
