Godzilla Toy Tuesday! A Really Red Anguirus, A Godzilla Figure From 1993 And Another That Is Big And Expensive

Source: Amazon.com

Toys Dream Project Godzilla 1955 Anguirus Pvc Figure Limted to 3000pc Import From Japan

Why is Anguirus red? Is he mad?

No, he is just sporting a variant limited edition paint scheme.

Then again maybe he just saw "Gigantis the Fire Monster" and he feels a little put out.

Regardless, this Anguirus figure is a Japanese limited edition release, only 3,000 made, that is the companion to the Toys Dream Project Godzilla 1955 Pvc Figure that we featured two weeks back.

Snatch this one up before he gets any redder.

GODZILLA Horizon Collectors Figure

Don't freak, you haven't traveled back in time, but this Japanese import graced store shelves way back in 1993!

This Godzilla was produced by Horizon Toys and is a rather rare figure.

Some assembly is required for this 13" tall x 17" long prepainted figure.

Snatch this one up today because older Godzilla figures only come around ever-so-often and there is only one of these left!

Art Works Monsters Giga Godzilla 1962 Vinyl Figure

Anybody looking for a really big, and expensive, Godzilla figure?

This import from Japan features the "King of Monsters" as he looked in the 1962 movie, "King Kong vs Godzilla" and is a whopping 18" tall, measures 28" from nose to tail and weighs 20 pounds.

That's a lot of monster!

So if you have a lot of shelve space, and good chunk of change in the old bank account, then this is the Godzilla figure for you!

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.
