Um... ok. I work security at a college in Crawley, England. I got into Godzilla - or monster movies in general - when I was a wee little sprite in the 80s when I'd watch them with my dad. I'm somewhat of a connoisseur of cheesy movies as well, so the Showa era ones are of particular delight. I've seen most of the movies but a select few still elude me because the genre isn't really as big here so they're on less and very few DVDs are released of them.

I'm on a lot at the moment 'cos I'm stuck on night shifts at work over the holidays, so am posting more than I probably will once I get back to a normal shift. Until then yer just ganna' have to tolerate mu.

Okay, i'll bite...

Just an old guy who grew up watching Showa era films in the 70's-80's on Saturday afternoon television.
After seeing the 2014 trailer recently I've had an interest in seeing the old movies & the newer genre flicks I've never seen. Stopped at FYE the other day & stocked up on some dvd's. Watched Mothra v Godzilla this morning. I'm hooked...again. Just took 30 years to reacquire the taste.

Awesome! Hope you'll post some pictures once it's complete!
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

Agreed, pictures when you can, even if it isn't complete, would be awesome. I never thought about Godzilla tattoo's until I saw Pacific Rim, but now it just makes sense!

Let's do this then! I'm NoOneKansai, born 1993, German and Swiss citizen, and I've been a huge fan of Japanese sci-fi films and Asian cinema in general ever since. It all started when my mother rented an old, very much censored German tape of "Godzilla 1984" when I was about seven years old, and soon after that, I started watching the films regularly on TV saturday or sunday afternoon. It's the main reason why I got attached to Japanese culture and I've been to Japan quite often now -- also speaking the language more or less, but still studying.

What's special about me? I only care about the original versions and never watch dubbed or cut films, which is hard sometimes because we all know about the release massacres Toho was responsible for while giving the rights to various labels without caring about their output. So I have to buy releases from all over the world -- luckily I'm fluent in German, French and English.

I should have registered here far earlier since I know and like the website for a long time. But oh well, here I am and ready to discuss with you about one of my favourite topics. ;)

Hi all. New here, been lurking for a few days. 42 year old Godzilla fan here, mostly the older movies that came on late saturday nights back when i was a kid. I'm just now starting to work my way through some of the "newer" millenium era flicks. I just bought two SHMA figures: Kiryu and 1964 Godzilla. Love them both!!
I just found this place last week, great site!!!

Heath, be sure to swing by the toys section and check out the various threads. There a bunch of collectors on here.



Sorry for the delayed reply Jomei. That's where i am lurking more than anywhere else. I've always been a fan of the toys, but only just recently started buying some.
