New York Blackout Breakdown

Click here for detailed results and insight into future Kaiju happenings, plus live event photography by Jason Bergman (including the photo to your right) and Ariele Hertzoff. Also, visit the Kaiju Mall to snatch up the remaining New York Blackout T-Shirts and prints.
The Kaiju Commissioner would like to express his most sincere gratitude to everyone that made New York Blackout a success. Much thanks to all of the media members who promoted the Battel including Wired, AMC, Flavorpill, Brooklyn Vegan, the New York Times, New York Daily News, Wonka Vision, Life in Boungaloo, Ain't it Cool News, New York Metro, Metromix, and WNYC's Soundcheck on NPR. Most of all, thanks to every single one of the 1,400 Kaiju fans who weathered the wintery mix to be a part of the sold-out Black Box test group.
Try as he might, the Commissioner was unable to prevent some crafty photographers from taking some amazing pictures at NY Blackout. Arambulo was able to capture some crazy photos from the back of the Hall. GLK Photo caught some dazzling, colorful action shots at Big Ringside. And let's not forget Jason Bergman's detailed set. Oh, and Erin's flicks are fantastical. And here's a non-Flickr set with some alternate angles from Dalls Penn.

Chikara King Of Trios Welcomes the Sea Amigos
The Sea Amigos had a rough NY Blackout, with Unibouzu and D.W. Cycloptopuss turning on Kaiju Champion Call-Me-Kevin. It is something of a shock then that the Amigos are scheduled to take part in Chikara Pro's King of Trios Tournament.
On 2/29-3/2, live from the New Alhambra Arena in Philadelphia, PA, Chikara Pro Wrestling will proudly present a tournament so massive it can only be completed over a three-day period. It's the King Of Trios, featuring almost a hundred competitors from the far reaches of the Universe, including the murkiest oceanic depths. Get your tickets now to see if troubled waters will run deep for Kaiju's saltiest sea beasts.
Question of the Week
When were the new Sky Deviler variants released?
Boulder Plushie Roll Out
Kaiju Hero Steam-Powered Tentacle Boulder is now available as a super-soft, hand-crafted felt plushie, fashioned by our friends at Moseyhandmade.com. This adorable Hero measures approximately 8"x8"x8" with 7" hand dyed tentacles and is limited to a run of only 30 pieces. This Boulder Plushie is the perfect companion to the Plantain Twin Plushies (only 3 of these left in stock).
Tadd Braddley, who ruffled some feathers during the RoBox Robolimination Rumble, won't be catching rays any time soon. Human fighter Chris Hero, who was ejected from New York Blackout, cold-cocked the Hawaiian Paddler, putting him in the coop indefinitely. Hero made waves with a Cannonball Splash and a Mauna Loa-sized suplex leaving the roughed up rooster with a cracked comb, a busted beak, and a torn wattle. It's a safe bet that until Bradley is ready to do Battel or rip a few curls, he's going to be in a fowl mood.
