Godzilla vs Biollante is getting a lot tougher to find, but it isn't quite as bad as some of the middle Showa series dvds, which have run up to over $100. When they exist, that is. I still haven't seen hyde or hair of a legit Son of Godzilla dvd.

Perhaps the halcyon days of kaiju video bootlegging aren't quite behind us yet.

You guys must really know where to look for look for this film.

My local FYE has never had any clearance copies of Godzilla vs. Biollante, Echo Ridge Blu-ray or otherwise.

I still have it on VHS from when I was a child. Wish I had the Japanese DVD however. I only had a region 1 DVD player when I was little and never got around to buying any movies that I already had on VHS.

Is this DVD worth getting? I do enjoy displaying my film collection.

I'm wondering if the license my expire at some point, or if there is any hope of a new edition from Lionsgate or ANYONE?

I know Ed Godzisewski(or one of the usual suspect Godzilla expert journos) did an audio commentary for it, for Lionsgate/Echo Bridge.....I would hope that one day we could get an edition of the film that includes it. For so many Godzilla films, so few of them have audio commentaries....and that is by far my favorite bonus feature for any film.

Still waiting for an offer to buy this Blu-ray.

Does anyone out there have a copy that they can spare? Please?

Sorry, out of luck on my end. :/

I did go check out the stores that I've seen have it before, particularly the FYE near me I mentioned earlier. I was confused to find they had NO Godzilla movies at all. Searching around, I found they had set up a separate Godzilla section, but only had a handful available (no Biollantes). I spoke with the manager, who said that since they'd had such a huge surplus of Godzilla movies for so long they decided to set up the section to time with KOTM coming out in theaters. The copies of Biollante they still had (when I showed her a pic on my phone of what it looked like, she thought there had been two or three) were sold in early June when there was a small surge in people coming in looking for Godzilla stuff. I also checked out a few second-hand places around here that I'd seen have it before, but no luck either. Sorry. :/

I can make another sweep, as it's been a few weeks since I looked. Lots of stories that could potentially have at least used copies around here.

wow....just looking on Amazon & ebay I had no idea how the price had spiked on this one. It had been released at least 3 times (once First By Echo Bridge then twice by Lionsgate...or maybe the other way around...) also packaged with other films...but man.... There are still many other films, older releases which don't demand THIS MUCH on the secondary market. There is a used DVD chain in my area going out of business, but found nothing there. makes me glad I have mine though.

If you want the actual Echo Bridge or Lionsgate BRD, that is going to be tough, fortunately finding the film itself isn't as hard.
To all you dub preservationists, my friends, you have my eternal thanks 8-) . Never stop what you do, you are amazing!

I know right?! Im having my mom send my movies from Venezuela because at first I thought "Im sure I can buy them again later on" When I got to see it goes insanely high. Well the good thing is coming safely.

Fortunately I got the Lionsgate DVD recently for just $22. My Blu Ray player upscales it nicely, no need for the Blu Ray.

Ooof, I regret getting the dvd and not the blu-ray when it was first released

Here’s hoping someone does a Heisei Era box set lol

I very much consider TFA to be half-assed. What a generic film which only fed on nostalgia, it brought nothing new to the table.


That's not true. C3PO had a red arm.

Guess what? My Echo Bridge Blu-ray of Godzilla vs. Biollante is on its way even now and it's new, wrapped and sealed!

Persistence triumphs every time! Thank you Michael, wherever you are!
