Great and fun list - I remember most of these items. Can't wait until you fill in the few missing ones.

Thanks! Let me know if you can think of anything I am omitting! I need to track down the Rodan and Ghidorah model kits from the 70's, because they should be here.

The first things that come to mind are the other GLJ items - Watch, and Bop Bag. Then Imperial did two different version Bop Bags along with their inflatable, and of course the Bubble Blower. There was also a licensed Godzilla/Dr. Pepper skateboard and a Godzilla "Petster" by Axlon.

Thanks so much for posting this wonderful stuff. I only remember about half of it, but would happily find a home for any and all of it in my office.

You are welcome! It's been my goal to have an online check-list of American Godzilla items, so folks know what is out there! Glad to be of service.
