Premium Bandai US Webshop Now Open

Recently the American branch of Premium Bandai has officially opened and now international customers can purchase items directly via the new US website.  Currently not many items are available for order, however items such as Gundam related items and S.H.Monsterarts are available to purchase on the website. Hopefully with the opening of the US branch more fan demanded products will be available in the near future, although for now this is a good sign that Bandai Tamashii is more open to international based customers.  


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 29: Do You Prefer Godzilla as a Hero or a Villain and Godzilla: Final Wars (2004) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 29: Do You Prefer Godzilla as a Hero or a Villain?: He’s whatever he wants to be. I find it kind of weird though since to me Godzilla isn’t really a “hero” or “villain” he’s more neutral than anything, chaotic neutral for the most part. Sometimes humanity benefits from Godzilla other times they are hurt by him but what he does for humanity isn’t of “heroic” or “villainous” intent, he just kind of does because of the consequence of what he is, a monster. HeRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 28: Which Movie Would You Remake and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S (2003) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 28: If You Could Remake One Movie Which One Would It Be? Shin Godzilla obviously. But in all seriousness if I could remake a Godzilla film there are a couple; Godzilla Raids Again, Ebirah, Horror of the Deep, Son of Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters, All Monsters Attack, Godzilla vs. Gigan, Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, Godzilla 2000 and the Kiryu saga. They are films I love and like, but maybe changing a few things here and there and fixing some other things toRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 27: Your Collection and Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla (2002) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 27: Your Collection: My collection? Jeez…I don’t feel like taking pictures of everything. So I’ll just say I have a lot of figures, a lot of VHS, a lot of DVDs and Blu-ray (I have all the Godzilla movies), I have a couple of the video games, and I have the autographs of Haruo Nakajima and Akira Takarada. I probably have other things I can’t think of right now, like a lunchbox and blanket, stuff like that. 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira tai MekagojiraRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 26: Favorite Standalone Kaiju Movie and Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 26: Favorite Standalone Kaiju Movie?: Besides the original Godzilla (what a shock) there’s The Return of Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and if they count, the Daimajin trilogy. All are just very well made films that are worth watching. 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira, Mosura, Kingu Gidora: Daikaijū Sōkōgeki aka Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack aka Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack featuring Baragon who we couldn’t possibly put in the main title for some reason aka GMK 2001:Read More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 22: Worst Godzilla Movie and Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 22: Worst Godzilla Movie (Emmerich Does Not Count): Worst? I’m not sure, I don’t think I have one. I know All Monsters Attack seems like the popular chose for understandable reasons but I still enjoy it for what it is, so it’s hard to say it’s the worst. I guess if I was going by personal preference I guess GMK? But like I said I don’t really have a worst Godzilla film. 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira tai Desutoroia aka Godzilla vs. Destoroyah 1995:Read More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 21: Least Favorite Kaiju and Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 21: Least Favorite Kaiju: None, I love them all, I mean I’m a zany kaiju fan what’s not to love about them? If I had to say I guess maybe Giant Condor? Maybe GMK Ghidorah who felt lackluster compared to his other counterparts.   30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira tai SupēsuGojira aka Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla 1994: So after TriStar’s 1994 Godzilla movie didn’t exactly happen, Toho responded by making another entry into the Godzilla franchise. So for the 40th anniversary of the franchise, likeRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 20: Coolest Incarnation of MechaGodzilla and Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (1993) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 20: Coolest Incarnation of MechaGodzilla: I like them all, I think they all have a unqiue and cool design and purpose that each one feels too different to say one is cooler than the other. I love the Showa era’s menacing alien robot of destruction, I love the Heisei era’s mechanized protector who is there only real chance at stopping Godzilla, and I love Kiryu from the Millennium era, which feels like a mixture of Showa’s destructiveness but also Heisei’s protectiveness. He’s a MechaGodzilla with theRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 19: Favorite Origin for Godzilla and Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 19: Favorite Origin for Godzilla: Probably the Original (the mostly used one) and the Heisei era. Both give a strong sense of tragedy for the Godzilla(s). A sense of suffering and how humanity was the creation of this destructive beast (Heisei’s though is a little out there but still gets the point across). 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira tai Mosura aka Godzilla vs. Mothra aka Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle For Earth aka Japanese Indiana Jones and the Moth of the Cosmos: Featuring GodzillaRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 9: Most Annoying Character Human/Kaiju/Alien and Destroy All Monsters (1968) Review

30 Days of Godzilla – Day 9: Most Annoying Character Human/Kaiju/Alien: I know this might sound weird to say but I don’t really have any character I find annoying. I mean there have been some that I didn’t really care for, but I just ignore them for the most part. If I had to say any there’s the Emmerich film’s characters, also a lot of the human characters from GMK (Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack) who either were overacting too much, way unbelievably cruel, or preachy asRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 7: Favorite Film (Showa) and Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 7: Favorite Film (Showa): Again besides the Original, the ones that always stood out for me were Mothra vs. Godzilla, Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster, Invasion of Astro-Monster, Destroy All Monsters, Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla and Terror of MechaGodzilla. I think they offer a lot of variety and awesome fun the franchise and a lot of re-watch value personally (Though I think all the Showa films provide that, those just stood out to me more.). 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira, Ebira, Mosura Nankai no Daikettou akaRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 6: Favorite Villain Human/Alien and Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 6: Favorite Villain Human/Alien: So I know the “human” stuff is not really talked about with Godzilla films but they do have some really good human/alien villains that do stand out. Ones that immediately come to mind are the Kumayama and Torahata from Mothra vs. Godzilla who had an interesting dynamic going on. Their greed consuming each other and Kumayama sadly at Torahata’s mercy because he put so much money into his plan. It’s no wonder he reacted the way he did. There’s also Malmess the assassinRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 5: Favorite Godzilla Costume and Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 5: Favorite Godzilla Costume: I’m going to be lame and say I like all of Godzilla’s designs for the most part. Both Godzilla and the other Kaiju in the franchise. But if we’re specifically talking just Godzilla suits, I can’t really choose because I think each one has a unique charm and look to them and they all fit for what kind of Godzilla film you’re going to be getting. From ShodaiGoji (Original) to MegaroGoji (Godzilla vs. Megalon-Terror of MechaGodzilla) in the Showa era. FromRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 4: Favorite Fight (Showa) and Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 4: Favorite Fight (Showa): Immediately my mind jumps to the fight between Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra battling against King Ghidorah. Just how it all comes together and how the monsters are working together to beat this behemoth of a monster. There’s also the tag team work of Mothra and then later on her twins against Godzilla in Mothra vs. Godzilla. Another set of favorites are the final fights in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla and in Terror of MechaGodzilla.   30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Mothra TaiRead More
