Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars Box Art Contest Winners
In collaboration with Toy Vault, Toho Kingdom
ran a contest for fans to design and submit box art for the
now released Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars board game.The
original prizes involved three contestants with the best submitted
designs winning a copy of Godzilla:
Kaiju World Wars. Since collecting the entries, Toy Vault
has graciously increased the available prizes and we are now
proud to announce the four winning entries in the contest.
Artist: Alex Alcanter
many entries were recieved, Alex's piece stood out from the
crowd. For one, it wasn't primarly created using exisiting
work through Photoshop, showing a lot of effort in its creation.
Second was that it was a flawless representation of the four
monsters from the game in an exciting and dynamic situation.
It has all the right ingredients for something
that would have really stood out on the store's shelf with
its great use of color.
It sets the mood and the level of detail present in Godzilla's
spines and the water running off the monster make this a clear
As the grand prize winner, Alex also has the biggest prize
to collect. He will be receiving a copy of the Godzilla:
Kaiju World Wars game and also four pieces of original,
framed artwork created for the game.
Stephanie's entry was one of several that could be classified
as primarily a Photoshop creation. Her use of predominantly red
made the cover look simplistic, but also stand out from other
entries. The selling point, though, was the excellent use of
the four monsters, who were grouped together in a great representation.
Professionally done and eye catching with a great use of the
game's four kaiju. Its downside is that it underplays the "Kaiju
World Wars" part of the title too much at the bottom in a small

Believe it or not, Jackson's entry was the only one to use
the Toy Vault logo in his box art design.
The overall appearance looks great, with a use of text and
logos which looks pre-conceived and a natural flow to the
Godzilla and Gigan, with added visual effects, stand out and
make the overall box art look very eye catching. Unfortunately,
King Ghidorah looks a little blurry and jagged here, likely
on account of a smaller image of the character being used for
the box art's creation.

Josh submitted the only entry that wasn't touched up or
created on a computer.
Godzilla, Gigan and King Ghidorah were all captured with a nice sense of detail,
while the traditional approach is admirable for its creation.
While it looks more like a poster than box art, and the tape
in the corners would seem to indicate it was hanged up to be
photographed, the attention to detail in the hand drawn Godzilla
is commendable and well executed while the flames at the bottom
are a nice visual touch.
Through a generous last minute addition from Toy Vault, Josh will receive
a copy of the Godzilla: Stomp Card Game and a randomly selected plush
Overall, the contest was a big success. I would like to
publicly thank everyone who entered, both the contestants
who were highlighted on this page and the many others who
submitted work that wasn't. I would also like to thank
Toy Vault for the fantastic prizes offered and the additional
prizes that were added after the contest was created.
