Today's entry is Bandai's 1954 Godzilla, representing his first appearance on screen. If you haven't seen the original Japanese version of Godzilla, you should. It is much more of a commentary on nuclear weapons (from the only people in history to have a nuclear weapon used against them) and is much more than just a "monster movie." I decided to do black and white images because the '54 film is in black and white.
He's 6" tall and made of vinyl, like the '68 I posted yesterday. He's dated 1998.
He looks just like his movie counterpart, especially when photographed in black and white.
Stupid lizard. Forget about "Yawn-zilla Weak" and bounce on over to Eclectorama for "Joker Week."
