By the way... why wasn't Anguirus '55 released? Was it some sort of licensing problem?
Eh, I would care. Chris has been making a big deal about how they cared what we thought and wanted to know what we wanted to see. I'd still like to see that come true. I've been calling BS that they cared for a little while now, and I'd like to be proven wrong.
I don't recall why Angy wasn't released, if a reason was ever given, but I don't think it had anything to do with licensing issues.

BC's effort is really only worthwhile to a small audience it seems and too small to justify expense. In the U.S. Godzilla seems best suited to comic shops importing products from other countries where he sells very well.
Huh, I haven't seen the Jakks figure anywhere. Only once when I was on vacation last year. But I do see the BC figures everywhere.
If the line just isn't doing that good, then I wish they, at the very least, wouldn't do all this stuff like asking everyone what they think of the line and what they want to see in the future, like a revival is on the way or something.

If only there was a year where Godzilla had a big anniversary and a major film event, like the first film in a decade and the first "real" American film... oh.
I still think they missed out last year. They went a little overboard with the Godzilla 2014 merch, much of which, honestly, wasn't too great. I really wish they did something with the classics line.
