I have been thinking about the late 70s Godzilla toy boom lately. Back then my Godzilla collection was small but special. Each piece had value and I’m fortunate to still have most of them. There were not many Godzilla figures as today. We had the Mattel Shogun Warriors Godzilla, Godzilla’s Gang, the Bendy Godzilla rubber figure and the Aurora Godzilla Model Kit. There were not many books except for Godzilla in Ian Thorne’ Monster Series, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Fangoria and the Marvel Comic Godzilla series. We had board games, punching bags and Halloween costumes. To see Godzilla we had to catch his movie’s in the theater or caught a movie on local television stations. The latter was most likely. And if you were lucky you had one of those Godzilla Super 8 films to watch on your family projector. For many of us, we enjoyed Godzilla View-Masters in between his next televised movie. View-master stereoscopes and reel were very popular at that time.
