I’ve managed to come across this blog through an image link to these really cool Animated stereoviews of old Japan. There’s plenty of other cool stuff including this anatomical illustration of Gamera.

‘The anatomical features of Gamera and his foes are detailed in a set of illustrations found in one volume of the Kaijū-Kaijin Daizenshū movie monster book series published by Keibunsha in 1972. Gamera’s features include infrared eyes with night vision, arms that can lift 50,000 tons, an organ for producing the flames he shoots from his hands, electrical spikes on his back, poison claws, sac-like organs for storing lava, coal, oil and uranium, balloon-like organs that blast jets of air out through the feet, and a tail of elastic cartilage that can deliver a powerful punch.’ Source: pink tentacle
