I might get Aftershock and the novelization just because it's sort of interesting to compare the differences between the novelization and the final film - usually nothing too major (with a few exceptions; for example the 1970s Creature from the Black Lagoon "novelization" that had next to nothing to do with the actual film and turned the Creature into a 50-foot hermaphroditic man-fish-pig), but there are generally one or two scenes that are noticeably different from the film, or scenes that were cut at the last minute for pacing are retained intact, or what have you

I'm not the sort of guy who generally wears fandom t-shirts but why are all the best ones UK exclusive
That's just bizarre to me, Godzilla's not nearly as "well known" over there as it is here (IIRC prior to G14's release most people were familiar with the franchise via G'98 and the Hanna-Barbera series)

Ohh, I like a lot of those t-shirts coming to Zavvi! Will be picking up a few of those, as well as the double duvet set (which I'm sure my partner will be thrilled about :lol: ).

I'm a UK fan and this is pretty much my experience. My mum grew up with the Hanna-Barbera series and still asks me if Godzooky will be in the new film every time I mention it. :|

I preordered the art book. I can't wait to look through it. I want some other Merchandise but I haven't decided what quite yet.

I'll wait to find out if I like the movie before I bother with the art book. Will probably preorder the soundtrack soon though. Amazon also has the Bandais on Prime now.

The Godzilla and Ghidorah Wall Breakers from Rubies are up for pre-order on Amazon for $250 :shock:
Definitely higher than I was anticipating but I'm still getting at least one of them

It's not that cheesy, it's literally the image that pops into the normal movie goers head when they hear Godzilla. People wouldn't be wowed or go "so cool! so bad ass" if they used legendary battling ghidorah like fans would be

I'm failing to see what's so cheesy about it, it's just a picture of the 1964 suit.

Reminds me of this attitude I see from certain fans where they almost treat the older films as a curiosity best kept out of the public eye.

How many times are you going to post that? Do you have something you need to tell us?

Kind of agree with this, which was my point. You and I, we see the 1964 suit. Joe Blow and Jane Wayne, casually shopping on a Tuesday morning sees a guy in a unattractive rubber suit with bad photoshop going GRRR ARRRR!! with his arms raised. This covers brings to mind every stereotype this genre of film has suffered for the last 40 years. Pick a photo from 1954; nearly every stock shot is somber, attractive yet conveys the character properly and doesn't look "fake" or like a cheap special effect. Or an actual poster, like the 1984 advance sheet, or hell, use the KOTM B poster for a nice promotion. Something that makes Godzilla look INTERESTING, not like a joke.

Have you seen any of the stock photos of 1954 recently? Nearly all of them with Godzilla front and center have the googly eyes, or that one tiny reference model shopped onto a backdrop.

The whole point of the Life magazine cover is to reference the silly b-movie marketing the 60's films got in America, and how what most people would consider outdated is getting a new Hollywood treatment.
