Kaiju fans, here’s an official version of Monopoly just for you! The board includes famous monster locations like Goro’s Workshop, Planet X, and the M Space Hunter Nebula. The set comes with custom sculpted tokens based on Mothra, King Ghidorah, Minilla, Mechagodzilla, and of course the O.G. (Original Godzilla.)
THE BEST Godzilla
Looking for something to complement that Nozilla figure on your bookshelf? Illustrator Noger Chen and Black Seed Toys are back with another playful anthropomorphic kaiju. This three-headed gold dragon monster is ready to hit the schoolyard, and comes complete with a mini Nozilla toy figurine, dodgeball, and trading card game.
Oklahoma leather goods maker Backerton handcrafts these substantial covers for your Moleskine, Field Notes, and other 3.5″ x 5.5″ journals. Each one features a bold image that’s been permanently fused into the surface of the leather. There are lots of cool designs to choose from, but Godzilla is our favorite.
Taiwanese illustrator Noger Chen’s and Black Seed Toys imagine Godzilla as a youthful dude in shorts, a t-shirt, and sneakers. This variant dolls him up in a flame tee and black shorts, and comes with a tiny Game Boy, a video game, and a VHS tape. The original version already sold out, so grab one before it’s gone.
These unofficial but still awesome playing cards feature vintage images from classic Kaiju and creature features like Destroy All Monsters, Mothra, and Godzilla vs. The Thing. Since Godzilla really is Head Monster in Charge, we think every card he appears on should be a King.
This permanent “life-sized” replica of Godzilla is coming to Japan’s Nijigen no Mori anime theme park on Awaji Island in 2020. A massive lizard measuring 65′ x 82′ x 180′ will dominate Godzilla Interception Operation, which will feature several “missions” including a shooting game and a zipline that rides into the monster’s mouth.
What starts out as a few styrofoam spheres, aluminum foil, and some hunks of clay serves as the casting form for an incredibly detailed monster sculpture, courtesy of artist Nick Brown of LoreCraft. The finished piece has even got spikes and teeth that glow under black light.
This incredible handmade musical monster has a body sculpted to look just like Godzilla, complete with a pointy spine, scaly skin, sharpened teeth and claws, and purple LED lighting to show it all off. If The Awesomer was a heavy metal band, all of our instruments would be based on Kaiju.
Godzilla finally gets a collectible toy that suits his name. This monstrous PVC figure measures in at 38.19″ long, and 18.5″ tall, and features incredible amounts of detail, from its scaly skin, to spiny back and tail, to its mouth full of deadly teeth. Keep an eye on the X-Plus website and Facebook page for pre-order details.
Godzilla is trying to get some serious crushing, crumbling, and chomping done when he’s interrupted by an obnoxious kid on his smartphone. Alamo Drafthouse offers up this hilarious stop-motion, pre-movie reel created by Cressa Maeve Beer and Phoebe Jane Hart.
The second trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters sees the Earth reduced to ruin. Our planet has become an arena for the ultimate showdown between Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan and the three-headed King Ghidorah. We wonder who named them in this timeline.
The sequel to 2014’s Godzilla promises more giant monsters and mayhem this time out, as Godzilla battles Mothra, Rodan, and the three-headed King Ghidorah, without care for how many humans, cars, buildings, and trains they stomp on in the process.
When your city is under siege by thugs and punks, you want a real hero. It’s time to call in the big guns. It’s time to call in COPZILLA. AOK dedicated their silly animated short to actor Haruo Nakajima, who portrayed Godzilla in the classic Kaiju films, and recently passed away.
Designer Michael “DinoMike” Buxton combines two iconic Japanese images, as Gojira himself stomps through the Great Wave off Kanagawa. Available on t-shirts, notebooks, wall art, phone cases, tote bags, throw pillows, and even an awesome duvet cover for your bed.
Kaptainkristian explores the origins of Godzilla, a franchise most of us associate with giant monsters stomping on buildings, but that had a much darker genesis – the (completely warranted) nuclear fears of a post-war Japan. TL;DW – go watch the original Gojira.
To celebrate the fall harvest in Japan, a group of more than 100 volunteers worked tirelessly to build this awesome straw sculpture of Godzilla. It measures 7m (~23 ft.) tall, with a 10m (~33ft) long tail, a light-up head and tail, and looks like its ready to stomp these kids. (Images: Jcast)
We had high hopes for Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla, but it had far too little destruction for a Kaiju flick. Japan’s Shin Godzilla makes up for that in spades, as is clear from this VFX reel from Shirogumi and StealthWorks, set to a soothing ambient soundtrack.
Frame by Frame explains that the original Godzilla’s real enemy was time. Given only 6 months to finish the film, director Ishiro Honda eschewed stop motion in favor of rubber suits, puppets and miniatures to create his 1954 classic, a setup that persists today.
An upcoming Godzilla reboot from the folks behind the Evangelion anime and Toho, the studio that created the King of Kaiju. シン・ゴジラ (Shin Gojira) aka Godzilla Resurgence is said to be a reflection of “the world’s recent “loss of innocence” from modern real-life tragedies.”
