I have a Capsule guy who specializes in Godzilla stuff yet when you walk into your shop and say, "Ooh, I'd like that." He tells you, "Oh, it's not for sale." There is stuff for sale but most of it just seems to be his private collection that is on permanent display in his "shop". Here are the latest Godzilla capsules. They are based on 根付 (netsuke) which are miniature button-like carvings used to hang personal items from a man's kimono.
If you want to get a clearer picture than the ones I took, I recommend you click that link.

Godzilla 1995.

The larval stage of Shin-Godzilla, which I like to call Derpzilla. 

And here it is sitting up to beg for food.

Shin getting ready to fire off an atomic blast.

And his skull infested butt.

This dude is the most recent version from the Anime.

It's nice to get a full set all at once without getting a ton of repeats.

Now all I need now is to get a kimono to hang them from!


Just Us League.

Guess what premiered today! After a couple of weeks of ignoring internet chatter about Justice League, it opened today to a modicum of fanfare. I went to a matinee in Imax and it was about 1/3 filled which isn't bad by Japanese standards.
My consensus? Not as good as Wonder Woman but way better than BvS.
Highlights: Any time Aquaman speaks or does anything. Anytime Flash speaks or does anything. Anytime Wonder Woman speaks or does anything. Parademons! Steppenwolf!! Low-lights: Batman in action great, any other time, meh. Superman in action great, his interaction with Lois was meh.

I snagged a set of six B-5 Clear Files. Here are the symbols on the reverse. Match them up with their hero counterparts.

And here is a set of two clear files. I like the one on the right best.

I have some other Justice League stuff to share yet I'll do that tomorrow. It's bedtime here.

And just so the day doesn't end without a bit of Godzilla, let's give thanks that there is a new Gatcha-capsule out there.

I just picked up the one for now. I have a Capsule dealer who has promised me an entire set. I'll pick it up on Saturday.

Happy Thanksgiving (USA) or Labour-Thanksgiving (Japan) or Happy Thursday to the rest of the world.


Figure It Out.

I saw these at the cinema when the movie first premiered and haven't seen them anywhere else since. Fortunately there were only five of them and the boxes were numbered so there was no fear of duplication so I bought the lot. I'm going to show them in reverse order, mainly because I like Hedora a lot and thus it'll show up in the thumbnail.

The rest of the box includes a mini-Kaiju data file.

Furthermore, there's a blurb about the movie.

Within the box is the figure and this piece of paper with a cryptic look at a 50 cm. tall figure. If you can scan the bar code from the pic, give it a whirl and it'll send you to this website.

I'll save you the trouble of the above click and show you the figure.

Hey, you also get a piece of gum for your five bucks. Not a bad deal!


Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

I saw this newspaper on the stands over a month ago, though at the time, I was laden with parcels, was heading out of town and couldn't pick one up. Since then, I couldn't find one anywhere! I finally tracked one down and am pleased to have done so.

Beware, there are a few minor spoilers ahead yet I'll try and keep the mystery intact. A few classic Kaiju have quick blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameos at the beginning of the movie. Here are a few of those creatures.

The big G finally shows up to create havoc in 2034.

The story unfolds with the cast and a few scenes.

Some movie history for your perusal.



I really need to check out the new Godzilla Store!

Here are some of the goodies up for sale...

Figures on the left and cookies with cards on the left. I actually have these and will showcase them anon.

Other goodies include a coin bank and a humidifier.

Ooh! I want an umbrella!

Finally there's motivation for me to attend a rugby game!

The back cover shows which cinemas are broadcasting the movie.

I've saved the best for last. This is the centerfold of the newspaper. Godzilla has really beefed up, hasn't he?
