Like many Godzilla fans my age I’ve been collecting for a long time. I’ve seen great merch come and go. And in many years past those collectibles were out of reach and just not affordable. I had a ten-year hiatus from collecting and the fandom after the release of Godzilla Final Wars in 2004. To celebrate Godzilla’s 50th anniversary and At that time Toho released the GODZILLA FINAL BOX: The 50th Anniversary DVD Perfect Box (『ゴジラ』生誕50周年記念DVD30枚組BOX) in 2005, promoted as “The last one, Godzilla”「最後の、ゴジラ｡」This amazing set contained 30 Godzilla DVDs (27 movies and 3 special discs). The big catch was a suit-sized soft-vinyl Godzilla head. I salivated over it, but back then it was virtually impossible to get despite the growing Internet and online shops. Times have changed but my desires have not. We are collecting in the best of times. What is released in Japan today arrives at our doorsteps tomorrow with great online shops and resources like Mandarake, Amazon Japan, Buyee Japan and more. I’m always searching and shopping. And when my eyes fell on that ultimate farewell Godzilla collectors set on Buyee, I had to grab it as I would have in 2004 if I could.
