Toybox Treasure: It's Jiras!
Did you know that Ultraman duked it out with Godzilla on Japanese T.V. in 1966? It's true! Well, kinda...
What actually happened for the tenth episode of Ultraman is that Tsuburaya Productions took the Godzilla suit from Godzilla vs. the Thing/Mothra vs. Godzilla and attached it to the Godzilla head from Monster Zero/Invasion of Astro Monster, put a big dino frill around his neck and called him Jiras! Jiras gets a few licks in, but ultimately suffers a (bloody (!)) defeat at the hands of Ultraman.
