Godzilla Toy Tuesday! Four Godzilla Figures In One Box And The Destroyah That Roared

Godzilla Yuji Sakae Concept Works 4 Figure Set By Bandai

I imagine that all of you Godzilla figure collectors out there are all too familiar with buying boxed G items from Japan.

What's the most annoying thing about these figures? Well, unless you can read Japanese, you can't tell exactly which figure from the set is in the box.

No need to worry here, because all four of these Godzilla figures come in one package.

Yes, four figures......one box.

Takes all the guess work out, doesn't it?

This Yuji Sakae Concept Works 4 Figure Set from Bandai includes the original Godzilla from 1954's "Gojira", 1962's "King Kong vs Godzilla", 1964's "Mothra vs Godzilla", and the melt-down version from 1995's "Godzilla vs Destroyah."

Four of the greatest Godzilla designs in one package!

This one is an import, so there is only one to be had, first come, first serve. Everyone else will just have to be in awe of the one who gets it.

Destroyah Complete Figure With Sound

Over the past decade and a half, Bandai has manufactured some really great deluxe figures of Destroyah, and today I have a real gem for you.

It's fine to have a bunch of figures on a shelf that just sit there, and don't do anything, but this Destroyah comes with authentic movie sounds.

That's right! This bad-boy roars!

Imagine the look on the cat's face when this baby goes off!

Again, this is a Japanese import that very hard to find here in The States, so act fast before they are all gone for good.

Burbank, CA – March 29, 2010 – Legendary Pictures announced today that they will develop and produce a new film based on Toho Company’s famed GODZILLA character. Through the terms of the agreement, Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to produce a movie inspired by Toho’s Godzilla, a franchise the Japanese company created and has nurtured for over fifty years.

Toho’s GODZILLA franchise boasts one of the most widely recognized film creatures worldwide, resulting in a series of books, television programs, video games and more than 25 films worldwide. Legendary intends to approach the film and its characters in the most authentic manner possible. The company will, in the near future, announce a filmmaker to helm the film for an intended 2012 release. The film will fall under the company’s co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros. Toho will distribute the film in Japan."

"Godzilla" is coming back -- this time, with Legendary Pictures taking the lead, co-producing and co-financing with Warner Bros. for release in 2012.

Legendary announced Monday it had obtained rights to the iconic monster character from Japan's Toho Co., which has overseen more than 25 "Godzilla" films. Toho will release the pic in Japan.

Legendary said it's planning to announce a director shortly.

In addition to Legendary, producers on the new film will be Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Brian Rogers. Yoshimitsu Banno, Kenji Okuhira and Doug Davison will exec produce.

"Godzilla is one of the world's most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise," said Thomas Tull, Chairman and CEO of Legendary. "Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."

Legendary noted the film will fall under its co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros. Legendary's productions with Warners have included "The Dark Knight," "300" and "The Hangover."

Speculation about a new "Godzilla" has been active since last summer. The Bloody Disgusting web site reported in August that the project was in development.
