A Book That Looks At The History and Cultures Surrounding Godzilla

December 30, 2015

Ok well I’m sure that plenty of people have written papers about Godzilla. It’s fairly well known that Godzilla was Japan’s answer to the Nuclear Bomb.

Godzilla, himself, is an avatar for the nuclear bomb. Knowing…

December 20, 2015

Because nothing says Christmas more than watching all of the Godzilla movies back to back, starting on Christmas Eve. Ok so maybe not. A Godzilla marathon over Christmas is a bold move. I have all of the Godzilla movies and it never occurred to me to inflict the entire run on my loved ones at Christmas. Still…I’m tempted. If one of my loved ones had put on a Godzilla marathon…

Shin Godzilla/Godzilla Resurgence

December 14, 2015

First, despite my excitement about a new Toho produced Godzilla, as far as I have been able to find, there is no US release date as of the time of this publishing. I eagerly await the US release. Also the nerdverse appears to have had mixed feelings about the new Godzilla design. It’s not as clean and, dare I say, pretty looking as some of the latest Godzillas. But I…

SHMA Mecha King Ghidorah

December 8, 2015

The piece stands 25 cm tall (around 10 inches Imperial) and has ball joints in the neck and tail for maximum freedom in posing. Also the clever use of die cast metal makes it really look authentic….

So without further adieu: Have you always found yourself creating art? -I have always been artistic, but mostly bored drawing lightning bolts and Veritech fighters in the margins of my notes during school.

Zone Fighter, A Little Known Toho Production

December 4, 2015

Because GodzillaMomma is about all things Godzilla and Kaiju, but especially Godzilla it is time to talk about an obscure little television series called Zone Fighter. More directly translated Meteor Human Zone, Zone Fighter was Toho’s answer to Ultraman. When I first discovered this show existed the first thing that popped into my head was, “How could i have not known about this?” My grandmother was our family’s first Godzilla…
