Details concerning Classic Media's next Godzilla release are finally starting to emerge, and it looks to be a box set for the King of the Monsters. At present, information is scarce, although an idea about what might be contained in the collection is starting to form. The first instance of the set being mentioned was on Amazon, where the online retailer included the release date of November 20th, 2007, and the detail that the collection would contain eight discs. More recently, Bestbuy has added a listing of the set, mentioning that Godzilla (titled Gojira in the set) [1954], Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964) and Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975) will be included. Consequently, it seems quite possible that this collection might be the first way for fans to get a hold of the firm's newer releases for both Ishiro Honda's 1975 film and, possibly, All Monsters Attack (1969). With the eight disc figure, it seems likely that this will include the firm's two disc Gojira release along with the other seven Classic Media licensed Godzilla films (Godzilla Raids Again, Mothra vs. Godzilla, Invasion of Astro-Monster), although this is only speculation at this point.

The set appears to have a retail price of $80, with both online retailers charging $56-60 for the collection. More news related to the set as it breaks.

Update: The site Creepy Classics has additional information regarding the contents of the set, and also has included a shot of the box art, which is seen above. The added details includes a rundown of the discs showcased inside, two of which are the new and previously unreleased editions from the firm:

- Godzilla (titled Gojira)
- Godzilla Raids Again
- Mothra vs. Godzilla
- Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster
