If you all wanted Kaiju then you should have voted it forward!!!

That T-Rex is unapologetically kaiju sized! This is only driving me mad because the desire for kaiju is obviously there but it's not one of the winning factions!! Ughhhhhhhh angry

Kaiju is just way too niche for this sort of thing. Compare Kaiju vs Dinosaur vs Dragon on Google Trends--kaiju may as well not exist: https://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=%2Fm%2F0h9fd%2C%20%2...

It doesn't even match Steampunk: https://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=%2Fm%2F0h9fd%2C%20%2...

Also, unlike Bear Cavalry, even more nichey, it's not obvious what it is to someone who hears the name. The concept is cool, but it's obvious why it lost... and it shouldn't ruin your enjoyment of this amaaaazing art.

I kind of agree here. I personally LOVE Daikaiju movies, but I think it would feel kind of like a rehash, what with dinosaurs and dragons already existing. I don't know, maybe if there was a Japanese theme or something then there could be a Level 5 minion that's a spoof of Godzilla, along with level 2 geisha and the like, but I just don't see a Daikaiju deck working very well.

DAAAAAANG.

Not only does this art look amazing, but it's always cool to see card artwork reference other card artworks from different factions (ie: The War Raptors going after High Ground, the Operative fighting on Do Over, the fact Griefer is using Zombie Robots, the crushed Howler on Friendship Power, the entirety of Shapeshifters, etc.) It's cool seeing iconic cards we've come to love re-imaged by other artists. I can't wait to see how each faction comes out in the final product aha

I like the art, but I'm a bit surprised it doesn't feature two of the new factions, e.g. Dragons and Superheroes.

Maybe the art is for a dragon card, and not for the box.

Oops, my bad. For some reason I had thought this was the box artwork...

I like this art. I wonder if this is the size of the original.

I don't recall exactly but perhaps the reason Kaiju isn't there is because it ended up going head to head with another more popular faction.

The voting wasn't a pure "Top 8 get in" kind of thing, there was an elimination phase as well.

Does anyone remember who Kaiju went up against in the round of 16?

Kaiju went against Elementals in top 32 and lost.

As far as I can tell, neither of those is correct.

EDIT: I was wrong about the Griefer.

Elementals didn't win in the end, did they? Darn shame, that one sounded cool.

This art looks incredible -- love the cross-pollination between factions, as others have mentioned.

(I'll have to see the others later.)

The Griefer is definitely playing Zombie Robots (two Zapbots, Mircobot Fixer and Tenacious Z). Do Over mostly the Operative fighting two Time Raiders. Remember the Spies' and Time Travelers' artwork was done by two different people.

I'm pretty sure that the one fighting Time Raider is Saucy Wench.

It has the same clothes.

On Do Over! the hair color is different, the earrings are different,
the dress is different (and doesn't have white stripes),
and the white gloves are missing. It's not the Operative.
You're right about Griefer, though.
