    Favorite suit: Bio-Goji

    Favorite Kaiju (G aside): Varan, SpaceGodzilla, and Battra Larvae

    Preferred Atomic Breath Color: Blue (or white)

    Feel free to add more to your lists, folks.
    GODZILLA RULES!

    I recently picked up the Gojira DVD release. Glad I finally got to see the original version of the movie that started it all.

    I love the cheesy movies from the late 60s and 70s, with Destroy all Monsters being my favorite. I know that they pretty much miss the original point of the character, but giant rubber suit monsters beating the crap out of eachother is comedy gold.

    Favorite flick: Godzilla 2000, and Final Wars.
    I know some people consider Final Wars an abomination, but I'm a big enough Power Rangers fan that I even enjoy the human action, and don't mind the cameo style the monsters were done in.

    Favorite suit: grey eyed Godzilla. Which film was that?

    Favorite Kaiju (G aside): Gigan - classic and Final Wars versions both rock

    Minilla, Godzooky, or Godzilla Jr.? - Minya - I'll always spell it that way - because I enjoyed the trippy style of Godzilla's Revenge. Godzooky sucks, and Godzilla Jr. never had enough character.

    Anyone posting at a good kaiju board? All the ones I've checked out became inactive.

    Godzilla v. Mechagodzilla 2 (1993) is probably my fave. Son of Godzilla is a guilty pleasure. If the damn human stuff didn't get in the way, I'd probably have grabbed every last movie.

    And in this box set:

    Yeah, I'm a Godzilla fan (I like other kaiju flicks too). Mostly prefer the showa era stuff- favorite is probably 'Ghidrah the three headed monster'. Favorite suit.. hmm.. not sure which I like best, but I agree the '89 suit was pretty cool looking. Favorite monsters are showa era Godzilla (of course) Ghidorah, and probably Hedorah.

    i finally bought godzilla finalwars the other day. now i am getting some of my old favourites. i always liked some of the older ones. the mix of CGI and monster suits/puppets just works so well at times.

    I also really like Final Wars, despite the hate it gets from alot of people. Oh, and the grey-eyed Godzilla suit is the one from Godzilla Mothra King Ghidorah:Giant Monsters All Out Attack, or GMK for short. As for a good kaiju board, I like the monsterzero.us forums, although they really aren't as active as here.

    Godzilla is pretty cool, wish the Matthew Broderick version wouldve made it more justice or at least I wish they wouldve developed more on it in further movies

    I always loved Godzilla: The Series. If the film hadn't sucked so much ass and the movie toys hadn't sat on shelves, then we would have got a sick new toy line based on the Animated Series from Trendmasters. However, this show and many other cartoons from 1998 and beyond got their asses kicked beyond imagination in ratings because of a little 1998 kiddie-crack phenomenon by Nintendo known as "Pokemon"(perhaps you've heard of it). This was another nail in the coffin for the Godzilla animated cartoon and a toyline that would have helped support it.

    The film with Matthew Broderick on the other hand, I utterly hated with a passion. Asexual reproductive Zilla can kiss the fattest part of my ass. I know the filmmakers were trying something different, but unfortunately whenever I see this movie get poked fun at it's because of Zilla's asexuality or how the film damaged Matthew Broderick's (and those involved) acting career. At least they got rid of asexual Zilla in the animated Series and just gave us a good ol' male Godzilla, and a boatload of evil giant monster goodness for him to teach the meaning of pain.

    I think the live action movie would have fared better if they had totally axed the Baby-Zilla thing and brought in another monster like they originally had planned. I vaugely remember it being a flying 3-headed canine like beast codenamed "Cerebus."

    Here's some excellent pictures and info on the Animated Series and what would have been the cancelled toyline:


    http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2006/03/28/godzilla-the-series/

    And yes, if they had made toys from the animated series, I'd buy every single figure. I already own BOTH games for the Game Boy Color (which are simple but fun). Now all I can do is look for a set of those Carl's Jr. toys.

    God Dammit how I wished they made that toyline!!! *shakes fist*

    Netkid you post if full info and win. I love Godzilla. And if I dont pay attention to the entire stupid facts of the tristar Godzilla I kinda like him/her. I really wished the Cartoon series would have kept going on. It was alot better then most of the bull crap during the 90s.
    Also does anyone have any links to some info/pics on the Godzilla movie line? The most I can find is some pics of the baby zillas.
    Edit.*HAH just saw the date of this thread!
