In 1984 Godzilla returned after a nine year hiatus. Little did I know, my small childhood Godzilla collection was about to grow exponentially. My collection was made up of U.S. releases such as the Mattel Shogun Warrior Godzilla, Mattel Godzilla Gang figures, magazines, newspaper clips, and puzzles. That year I was introduced to Rocketships & Accessories on South Street in Philadelphia when they put on a 30th birthday bash for big G! There I saw Japanese Godzilla toys, books, and more for the first time. And my collection was never the same again.
