I think it’s worth it if the show is only available on that format...like the aforementioned Amazing Colossal Man.
"Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them." - Ishiro Honda

Which reminds me, I have an old VHS copy of Attack of the Super Monsters. Perhaps the best giant monster of all time! Should really be on this list...

Man, these types of releases go OOP so incredibly fast it seems. Maybe not.

Added in 21 hours 8 minutes :
Here is a handy resource site for Kaiju and Tokusatsu releases. The pain is you have to keep checking the site as there's no Twitter or anything to follow.

Got a few updates for you. The Black Scorpion and The Valley of Gwangi are both on Warner Archive now (and the first one was released in 1957, not 1958), the Warner Archive version of The Last Dinosaur is the complete and unedited one, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad single-disc DVD is OOP, you forgot The People that Time Forgot (which is, of course, OOP) and I think you also forgot Supergator (2007), which I think was on DVD but is now OOP.

in the UK, a company called indicator/Powerhouse films are putting out really nice Blu-ray box sets of Ray Harryhausen films owned by Sony. so far there are three sets, the first being all the Sinbad movies ( I own that one and it's beautifully) the second one has IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH and THE 3 WORLDS OF GULLIVER. the third has MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS and FIRST MEN IN THE MOON.

There's a Blu-ray of MIGHTY PEKING MAN here as well, from 88 films and they are putting SUPER INFRAMAN out on Blu-ray in April.

Yeah, it grinds me about all these Blu-ray released elsewhere. King Kong '76 got a Blu-ray release in Australia and France but not the US. I actually really like that film. I'm delusional enough to think that King Kong Lives will get the blu treatment. I am extremely fortunate to have found a cheap DVD copy it last summer.

Yay! I’m glad I held off on the OOP Black Scorpion. That movie deserves a nice Blu-ray release.

I'll definately be getting The Black Scorpion. It's a favorite 50s flick.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought ypu gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

Here in the UK, HMV is doing a collection of films they're calling the premium collection. It's Blu-ray/DVD combo packs of films from Warner Bros, Paramount, and Sony. They've released King Kong(1933), Them, Jason and the Argonauts, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, The Valley of Gwangi and Clash of the Titans. Before anyone ask they are full pressed discs. I have a few movies from and the packeting is really nice, this what your getting:
