"The devil has three heads"
King Ghidorah, known to Monarch as 'Monster Zero', is an alien life form with unknown origin. Yet ancient civilization whispered an unspoken name of this evil incarnation through millenia of fear and terror, passing only a myth of the great dragon who fell from the star. Everywhere the three-headed devil travels, he brings an otherworldly thunderstorm, causing a hellish sight of destruction in his path; truly the avatar of horror deserved the title of 'Living Extinction Event', a false king to all titans.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Original Motion Picture Soundtrack!
Featuring music by Emmy® and BAFTA Award winning composer Bear McCreary (10 Cloverfield Lane, TV’s The Walking Dead), in two special deluxe triple LP vinyl configurations. Written and Directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus) and starring Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), Kyle Chandler (Super 8), and Ken Watanabe (Isle of Dogs, Inception), Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the highly anticipated next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic Monsterverse - an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.
Composer Bear McCreary’s (10 Cloverfield Lane, Happy Death Day, and TV’s The Walking Dead) music is a two-year-long labor of love dubbed a “Monster Opera” by director Michael Dougherty, and a crucial element to the film. Each “kaiju” is given a voice in this epic opera - Godzilla is presented with heroic, guttural vocalizations. King Ghidorah presented with dark, hypnotic chanting. Mothra by way of an ethereal female choir. Rodan’s voice is achieved by orchestral French horns pushed to their very limit to “scream” ripping roars.
Incorporated and adapted are both the legendary Godzilla theme by Akira Ifukube, and the immortal “Mothra’s Song” by Yuji Koseki. Also included is the McCreary-adapted eternal classic “Godzilla” by Blue Öyster Cult, featuring Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) on lead vocals, and musicians Brendon Small, Bryan Beller, and Gene Hoglan who form the Dethklok rhythm section of from TV’s Metalocalypse.
Clocking in at 98 minutes of music, Waxwork is proud to present Godzilla: King of the Monsters as a deluxe triple LP set. Housed in a unique, rarely manufactured heavyweight triple-fold LP ‘monster’ pack, and featuring 180 “Kaiju” colored vinyl, liner notes by director Michael Dougherty and composer Bear McCreary, and artwork by Christopher Shy.
GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features:
Art Spirits is releasing the Hyper Solid Godzilla 2019, and the Hyper Solid Gigan GFW Version 2. Godzilla 2019 that has been teased a number of times, it is 29cm in length, features a "emissions" version paint scheme, and will retail for 21,780 yen. Hyper Solid Gigan GFW is similar to the previously announced figure but features the chainsaw hands and neck brace, it stands 27cm tall, and will retail for 24,200 yen. Both can be pre-ordered now from Bandai (and possibly other retailers) with release scheduled for Dec 2019.
Megahouse has officially announced their Godzilla 2019 UA Monsters figure. This figure stands 30cm tall, features both lights and sound, and comes with a logo base. The light up feature allows both the fins, mouth, and eyes to light in sequence. It retails for 36,300 yen from Megahouse's website but will also be available from other dealers (Bandai, AmiAmi, etc.) as well with release scheduled for Jan 2020.
We have a few better pics of the Art Spirits display via Toyark, on display were previously announced figures, the forthcoming Godzilla 2019 Hyper Solid figure and new Godzilla KOTM figures. The previous figures include the Gigan, Shin Godzilla 4th and 2nd forms as well as older blind box Gamera figures that may have been available for purchase at the show. The new figures were the recently revealed Godzilla 2019 and the line up of KOTM figures (minus Mothra) that appear the be a smaller scale. Of note Toyark list these as from the Plex (X-Plus) booth, we knew Plex was involved and we believe X-Plus may be doing manufacturing for Art Spirits but we are not sure if this booth was actual branded Plex/X-Plus.
Update: the smaller KOTM figures will be blind box figures and there will be six total, Mothra (adult and larva) and another Godzilla.
Note to our fans, this section will include all Monsterverse collectibles (Legendary Godzilla/Kong etc.) going forward. Some older posts pertaining to Monsterverse/Kong collectibles are under the Other Kaiju Toys section, we will move them to this section time permitting. Thank you.
