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.

Sean Linkenback said...

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.
