Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973)

By DAVID WEINER

Despite a cool poster that came out showing Godzilla and the beetle-like Megalon duking it out on top of the World Trade Center in New York -- a scene that never actually happens in the movie -- this 1973 Godzilla entry is notable for the addition of Jet Jaguar, a robot capable of growing to giant Kaiju size and entering the monster-mash arena. Nuclear tests prompt an underground race of humans to unleash their own weapon -- Megalon -- onto the populace, and it's up to everyone's favorite fire-breathing monster to team up with Jet Jaguar to save the day.
