At least ten years ago. I forget how I came across it, but I recall paying around $90 for what was a near-unread copy.

Nice! I paid $113. I think it's a bargain considering a few have gone for $300+ on eBay recently

Very nice grab, G21. That's definitely one of the grails.

I spoke to Ed G at G Fest a few years ago. He said he thinks only 500-1000 were made. So it's a very small number that are out there. I have heard the book is somewhat dated now but I look forward to reading it.

I hope one day Ed can re-release it later on down the line. Even if it's outdated, it's still a piece of western kaju fandom history and deserves to be seen by all who are interested. Maybe an online PDF version?

Anyway, I just picked up the Haruo Nakajima Monster Photobook from a US seller on eBay for less than $30. Very excited to check it out!

That's another great book. A ton of behind the scenes pics I've never seen

Picked up this silk print 27"x 40" poster up on ebay for $15 total. Love this teaser poster as soon as I first saw it. All framed up in my movie room as of today.

Very beautiful book. I managed to get two. I got both of them when Nakajima came to Dallas for a convention. I got one autographed and I bought another one to read without worrying about damaging the autographed one.

The Nakajima book came in today, unfortunately it reeks of tobacco so I only managed to skim through a few pages or so before I put it in a ziploc with a dryer sheet to try and get rid of the smell.

What I saw was breathtaking, so many shots that I've never seen before and more than a few I'm certain haven't left this book. It's so amazing to see the Toho soundstage in all its glory back in the 50's and 60's. I'm gonna try and track down more books in this series, I know there's a Keizo Murase book that goes for a hefty penny.

I hate when books come in smelling like tobacco. Did the seller mention that?

Anyone know where I can find an original 1954 poster? Looking to get one signed at G-Fest for my "holy grail" item.

You can find half sheets pretty easily online but I personally wouldn't get it signed. Too valuable in my opinion. I would mount the signatures on a good period photo then maybe frame it with the poster. Even the lobby cards run $ 700-1000.

Perhaps I'm not go ogling correctly. I'd be willing to pay upwards of $500. I'm an idiot for not picking this stuff up around the 50th anniversary, but I was only around 10 years old at the time. I like your idea of putting the signatures inside the frame with the poster. It would only be Akira Takarada's sig, but I love Ogata as a character and he actually has made an impact on my life. So I'd like to enshrine his signature within original material. If you have any links, I'd appreciate you sharing.

EDIT: Looks like I'll be paying much more than 500. But I do think this would be my holy grail item.
