The book also includes small color images of the original paintings for reference.
Godzilla vs. Kong is a big hit. But if you prefer your monster movies without so much CGI, check out Godzilla vs. Mito Komon, a fan film made by Shinya Takeshita back in 1991. What makes it so perfect is how the filmmaker played every one of the roles and made all of the sound effects and music with his mouth.
“Godzilla’s out there, and he’s hurting people, and we don’t know why.” It’s pretty obvious from the title, but this blockbuster is about a battle between two giant monsters. As an enraged Godzilla rises from the ocean, the giant ape Kong senses a threat and all hell breaks loose. Coming to theaters and HBO Max on 3.26.21.
In this episode of batinthesun’s Super Power Beat Down, two giant reptilian monsters go toe to toe. One of them is completely organic, while the other is a mech. Will Godzilla’s natural instincts top the Green Ranger’s robotic Zord in the battle arena? Tune in now, and find out.
Godzilla’s titanic turtle counterpart, Gamera, gets some long overdue respect with an aptly ginormous box set of his film library. Gamera: The Complete Collection includes 12 movies in high-def with Japanese audio and English dub tracks, an 80-page retrospective book, a 130-page comic, poster, and art cards. Drops 8.18.20.
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.
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.
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.
