Now there's a work of art truly befitting this modern cinematic classic!

Wow!

I actually dig this a lot. I've gained a lot of newfound respect for this design through my kids. They want toys of all of the kaiju in final wars, and to them, Zilla is just another kaiju. They don't care about the crappy movie, why should I?

The movie wasn't as bad as people say. The little 'zillas were awful, and the female lead couldn't act her way out of a paper bag, but there were some genuinely cool moments. We rewatched it recently, and it held up fairly well for such old CGI. I really like Godzilla's design in the movie, too. I regret selling my toy of him in a garage sale years ago.

I agree

The movie's effects do hold up well. I still have my original electronic Zilla next to all the other real action Godzilla mods. Trendmasters I think.

Oh, quite true: the movie

Oh, quite true: the movie wasn't as bad as people say. It was about a thousand times worse!

Are you serious? It was three hours of crime-against-humanity.

I'd rather watch Godzilla's Revenge a hundred times in a row.

Never saw the Hollywood

Never saw the Hollywood Godzilla film. Life is too short to waste on bad-bad movies. When it came out I got a VHS copy of CARNOSAUR instead ("It's better than Jurassic Park!") and still do not regret that choice.

Yeah, I tried to like the US Godzilla, but just couldn't. I've never seen Carnosaur, although I do hear it has quite the cult following. Should watch it one of these days.

This is by far the coolest thing that is in any way related to that bucket of feces of a movie. Especially the green one -- it has a cool Bullmark look to it.

I have no problem with the Cloverfield monster and even less with the movie, which I thought was great. I just don't think the monster would look good in my collection, so I never bought the toy.
