40 Years


It was forty years ago this week on March 15, 1975 that Terror of MechaGodzilla was released in Japan. Along with its predecessor, Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla (1974), it is one of my favorite Godzilla movies.

Two weekends ago was my birthday and I spent a day of shopping for Godzilla collectibles with my life-long friend Eric in New York City. It was fitting that I found the Bandai MechaGodzilla 1975 diecast figure at Image Anime.
