We love watching movies like Godzilla and Mothra and Ghidorah for their building-stomping monster action. But as Overly Sarcastic Productions points out, there’s way more depth to these films than just guys in lizard and moth costumes stepping on scale models of Tokyo.
THE BEST Kaiju
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.
Betabrand says their Hawaiian shirt was “inspired by actual events,” but we don’t remember the last time that a 20-story lizard actually battled a 3-headed gopher monster on the streets Tokyo. But even if the imagery stretches the truth, it’s a cool shirt. Grab one before they’re all gone.
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.
A brief, but well-executed promo animation for the 2019 Festival International Du Film D’Animation d’Annecy. Students from the Gobelins animation school envision a world filled with guys in kaiju costumes stomping around a tiny Tokyo, slapping each other about in a monster-sized wrestling match.
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.
