Lost Hong Kong Kaiju

I pulled these images off a forum ages ago and have been meaning to post it here. Love to track this one down, but I fear it is lost, lost, lost. A giant General Kwan (The God of War but also considered the God of Wealth) defending Hong Kong from giant alien invaders! How awesome is that?! Time for Tsui Hark to produce a remake! Any leads on the translation of the title? The final image is of an assortment of newpaper ads for other HK releases of kaiju films including Inframan and the Hanuman meets Ultraman film as previously posted.

This post over at Tarstarkas.net refers to it as War God and gives it a 1976 release date. He also links to a review of the film on a Chinese language blog.

Todd is right. The title translates as "War God". It's a 1976 Taiwanese film directed by Chen Hung Min. (thanks to my gf's mother for the translation) ;p

That's mad - I've got the same stills from the same forum sitting on a harddrive somewhere and was just thinking about them the other day.

Always loved the look of the Rocketeer type guy in the bw ad on the far right...
