GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS Items (2019) Continued!

Here is the remainder of my KING OF THE MONSTERS items that have come in lately! As I mentioned in the last post, the commemorative IMAX Regal Theaters ticket had a code on the back, which allowed you to send off for a mail-away promotional 13 x 19" IMAX poster (by just paying shipping, which I think was 8 bucks).  I am happy to say the poster that arrived in a week not only came in a sturdy tube, but is also completely unique!
Next, here is most of an 8-page theatrical booklet that was available in Japanese theaters!
Here is the chirashi flyer for the film, also from Japanese theaters!
And finally, here are better photos of the Japanese flyer from last time, that showcases all of the monster portraits! Good stuff!

GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS Items (2019)

Here are some amazing GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS items I've acquired lately! The artwork for this movie is beyond stellar! First up is the US Advance 27x40" double-sided poster!
...which of course led to the final US 1-sheet (also double-sided and 27x40").  You will note that I borrowed the image from Ebay--take that as an endorsement and buy from this seller, for great service and excellent packing!
Some IMAX theaters offered collectible tickets, numbered and limited to 1000.  On the back was an offer for a free IMAX poster.  It's unclear if it's exactly the same poster as this next item, but we shall see when it arrives in the mail in 10-12 business days. [EDIT: The mail-away is indeed a unique poster, which will be seen next post!]
This stunning IMAX poster measures 13 x 19". I bought it from an Ebay seller, and it came rolled in a plastic sleeve.  
I always enjoy finding some of the most unusual Godzilla promotional items, and this is no exception! This is a key-card from Caesar's Palace hotel and casino in Las Vegas!
And finally, the stunning artwork of all four monsters.  Even though there are tons of reproductions (or "prints") on Ebay, it's very difficult to find genuine versions of the artwork, especially with minimal text.  I went with a Japanese flyer that is B4 sized (folded in half; approximately 7 x 10") and 4 pages.  In fact, the seller was selling two copies together in sets, which would be TRULY incredible to frame together, as seen above.  I would recommend these; they are inexpensive and very high quality.  

Speaking of, I'm also waiting on a Japanese program book and a couple more things that I will have to scan when they arrive. Stay tuned!

This is an update from a previous post!
If you have any of these American Godzilla videos, I want to buy them!!!

2) Godzilla vs. Monster Zero (Simitar, 1998, Blockbuster version with orange sticker, poster or not)
3) Godzilla vs. Sea Monster (Beech/Videoline; date unknown)

From my own research, these are the last Godzilla VHS that I need to complete my collection of Godzilla films on VHS! If you are interested in seeing the over 160 Godzilla & Toho kaiju VHS releases, you can view my separate page called GODZILLA: American VHS 1983-2002.

If you own any of these tapes, please contact me at samtheq@juno.com.  Even if you aren't interested in selling them, and can provide some of the unknown details, or decent scans for the page linked above, it would be hugely helpful!

Lego Empire Strikes Back Bounty Hunters Diorama!


I've been wanting to make a diorama of this scene for years now, and since Lego has FINALLY GIVEN US A ZUCKUSS minifigure, it can now be done.


Thank you to my Danish overlords for FINALLY GIVING US THE LAST BOUNTY HUNTER.

"THAT man is playing Galaga!"
