Upon further inspection, I examined some aspects of the site that possibly, and this is just possibly, lead to clues to our monster or monsters origins.
- Eggs or objects similar to eggs are prevalent on the website. The contents look like floating eggs or discs.
- The slusho splashing looks an awful lot like water.
- There are immediate appearances of a fish and frog that signals the possibility of this monster being water based and possibly amphibious/reptillian. This evidence is also supported by our two cartoon characters swimming in water. Water based monsters seem the strong possibility.
- “You can’t Drink Just Six”? Mark Bell noted this slogan. Possibly the six plays a key? Note the 6 in the bottom next to Japanese lettering. What’s the Japanese lettering telling us? Let me know if you can.
- Satoshi@Slusho.jp?? I sent an e-mail. Still awaiting a response.
- Could this creature originate from Japan? Or an Asian region?
- The “Slusho! History” page explains the “tale” of a young girl experimenting with a formula for a magic product, making heavy notes of the words Whale, and how Noriko set off to the sea to find the magic ingredient. There are also mentions of a magic deep sea formula, and how this ingredient turned our character from a small fish to a mighty whale.
- The fact that the “Slusho! History” speaks of two characters transforming into large sea beasts adds credence to the two monsters theory.
- Look for pictures, graphics, and symbols as possible clues. Perhaps this is just another dead end for me. But I’m drawing theories, nonetheless.
- Many have claimed an indistinct silhouette of the monster can be seen in the trailer. Wild imaginations, maybe? Or something to look for?
- The very strong theory at this juncture is that the monster is Cthulhu.
- Abrams alludes that clues to the movie, and possibly hidden websites are located in the trailer. The analysis continues…
Are there truths to the rumors that the monster resembles Godzilla in a major way?
Many speculate this is a re-invention of Godzilla, but that seems far off.
Don Lewis suspects a hybrid of Godzilla and The Host.
It’s only been a under a week since “Transformers,” and the news is flooding in from all over the wire. It will be impossible to keep up with, but I can’t stop it.
Fill me in if I’m missing something. We may be able to crack this egg.
Time will tell…
