Official Images: S.H.MonsterArts Godzilla (2016) Fourth Awakening Ver.

Similar to the update for S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Sigma, Premium Bandai has also listed the order page for the newest announced S.H.MonsterArts. This new S.H.MonstersArts is the “spit-fire” edition of Shin Godzilla, but is properly called the Fourth Awakening Version. Now, for those who have either seen the film or read the spoilers Godzilla effectively spouts highly concentrated thermonuclear beams not just from its mouth, but its tail and plates. However, the official S.H.Monsterarts can only perform the blast from the mouth and tail, as well as include Tamashii Stages. Orders willRead 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 8: Favorite Fight (Heisei) and Son of Godzilla (1967) Review

30 Days of Godzilla – Day 8: Favorite Fight (Heisei): Man this is actually a tough one, cause I think the Heisei era has just as many awesome fights as the Showa era. Ones that stood out to me the most were, Godzilla vs. Super X from Return of Godzilla, it’s so well done for a Kaijuu vs. Military Vehicle and creative, Godzilla vs. Biollante (both fights) like the fight with Super X, both fights are well crafted and creative in their execution (So many people needed to make itRead 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


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 2: Favorite Kaiju and Godzilla Raids Again (1955) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 2: Favorite Kaiju- Again besides Godzilla I really do like Anguirus, Rodan, and Mothra. I also like King Ghidorah, Destroyah, Gigan, MechaGodzilla, Biollante, SpaceGodzilla, I love them all! 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira no Gyakushu/Godzilla Raids Again or Godzilla’s Counterattack 1955: Immediately after the success of the of Gojira, Toho thought they would capitalize and come out with a sequel, giving the crew 6 months about to work on the film. Does it hold up? Well it’s not awful, but if you’re expecting theRead More
