Godzilla Vs. The Sea Monster Thai Poster!

godzillavssea_thai

That's one very vivid poster! They obviously considered Ebirah to be the star of the movie, though... look how small Godzilla is in there!

Godzilla Vs. Megalon Pressbook Pages!

Wow, they really did a lot of promotions for this movie, didn't they?

Monster Zero Still!

Pretty sure this never happened in the movie... how many different photos were used to composite this together?

Son of Godzilla German Poster!

sonofgodzgerman.jpg

I can just imagine the art director for this poster... "Ja, ja, make sure the monsters are on this poster, especially Godzilla's son... but make sure you get some cheesecake on there, too, for people who don't like giant monsters!"

And the inserted photo at the bottom is probably the only cheesecake this movie had to offer!

Godzilla Children's Costume by Ben Cooper!

I suppose no matter what, this costume was bound to disappoint from an adult viewpoint...

King Kong Escapes German Lobby Card!

I always thought that was a pretty good dinosaur costume in this movie!

King Kong Escapes German Lobby Card!

kongescapes_gerlc1.JPG

Wow, did one of the Italian photobusta artists work on this one? It looks like someone pasted together at least four and possibly five photos together to create this "scene"!

Godzilla Vs. The Smog Monster!

godzillavssmog_poster2.JPG

I wonder if this was a UK poster, because I don't recall that this was ever released in the USA under the title "Godzilla Vs. Hedorah"!

Godzilla 1985 Poster!

godzilla85.JPG

I'm about to admit something rather embarassing... this movie came out while I was in the Navy. I was serving on an aircraft carrier at the time, and we were out at sea when the movie premiered... however, we did return while it was still playing, and my best friend at the time and I went out to see the movie the day the ship came back in port.

Unfortunately, I had stayed up all night the night before, trying to get my circadian rhythms back in order after the kind of odd shift I would work out at sea...

...and you've probably guessed it. I fell asleep during Godzilla 1985. In the theatre. I don't remember how long it was before I actually saw the whole movie from start to finish. I must have been exhausted!

Son of Godzilla German Lobby Card!

sonofgodzilla_gerlc4.JPG

You don't see too many lobby cards of stills that show Godzilla from the back...

King Kong Escapes German Lobby Card!

kongescapes_gerlc3.JPG

Wow, I think this is my favorite of all the German King Kong Escapes lobby cards, despite the photos being in black and white!

War of the Gargantuas Italian Photobusta!

warofgargantuas_itlc2.jpg

Wow, I think this one actually uses pictures from this movie!

Rodan Lobby Card!

They really didn't get Rodan's look down on this, did they? Still, it's a nice piece!

Son of Godzilla Mexican Lobby Card!

Here's another of those Mexican lobby cards I had a MUCH bigger photo of to share!

Godzilla Pressbook!

godzilla_pressbook.jpg

I should've really placed a bid on this item... probably would've been outbid in no time, but... I would've loved to see the rest of the pages!

Gamera Vs. Jiger Japanese Poster!

gamerajigerpos

Have I posted this poster before? This is a fairly large photo, but it was pieced together by the seller from two photos, kind of badly (I should've really fixed it, sorry)!

Godzilla Vs. The Smog Monster Italian Photobusta!

godzillavssmog_itlc2.jpg

You will, of course, realize that there are two different photos cut together here... there weren't two Godzillas and two Smog Monsters in this movie -- unless it was a very different movie in Italy!

Godzilla Lighter!

godzillalighter.JPG

If I still smoked, I'd absolutely want this... heck, I want it anyway, just because it's probably the most perfect fusion of Godzilla and something practical!

King Kong Vs. Godzilla Mexican Lobby Card!

kongvsgod8mexlc

I really wish I had larger photos of all the various Mexican Lobby Cards... just to show the detail!

Can you imagine what a modern-day remake of King Kong Vs. Godzilla could be like, with the modern-day SFX? Of course, they'd have to explain why Kong was so much larger, but they have also scaled down Godzilla since these days, haven't they?

Mothra Title Card!

mothra_lc.JPG

"Mightiest Monster in All Creation"? I don't recall any incarnation taking on Ghidorah single-handedly and winning...

And "Ravaging a Universe for Love"? Mothra never went off-planet that I ever recall, not even in the more recent Mothra movies...

I guess the US distributors figured they had to do something to sell a movie about a giant moth that wouldn't have moviegoers saying, "Oh, a giant moth? Big deal, build a giant candle and light it at night, and the thing will fly into the fire and burn itself up."

Godzilla Vs. The Thing Lobby Card!

godzillavsthing_lc.JPG

Rule #1 of advertising (well, at least for advertising movies, anyway): If your whole marketing campaign is based on something being a mystery, don't reveal the mystery in your choice of stills for the lobby cards.

Gamera Bandai Model Kit!

gamera_bandaimodelkit.jpg

Looks like a very nicely-detailed it, doesn't it? I'm sure that, like most figural models from Japan, it's poseable, too!

Godzilla, King of the Monsters Mexican Lobby Card!

godzilla_mexlc.jpg

Wow, could they have picked a more boring still for this lobby card?

Godzilla Australian Daybill!

godzilla_australiadb.jpg

Crude, for certain... but an undeniable charm to it, as well!

Godzilla's Revenge Japanese Poster!

godzillasrevenge_japan.jpg

Certainly considered by many to be the least of the Godzilla movies, given its use of footage from previous films in the series, as well as the plot... but it's a nice looking poster, isn't it?
