Godzilla Ultimate Box

Noticed this in the recent CDJapan email announcement:

Yowza!

What are the odds that any of these movies will have English subtitles? Slim? None?

The odds are both slim & none. This is a repackaging of the all of the previous releases, none of which have English subtitles.

Argh, beat me to it. I said in a previous post, it would be around 700 bucks. Guess I was wrong...

(Edit: my memory went strange on me. I said 850, guess I was pretty close after all!)

I just noticed that it comes out almost a year from now.

Pre-orders are getting ridiculous.

The production run is determined strictly by the number of preorders for this release, hence the far off date. No subtitles.

If that is the case, then it does makes sense, thank you!

20% off at Amazon Japan - 79,800 yen as opposed to 95,000 yen at CDJapan.

Anybody have pictures of the head?

They should've tried to top the Alien head and made a human-size Godzilla figure with the 27 discs lining his spine. Wonder how much that would go for?

I'm sure they'd still have more pre-orders than they could handle.

If it had subs (doubtful), I'd probably bite the bullet and pick this box set up. So, Toho's usual stinginess in this area will most likely save my marriage.

No pics of the head yet. It will be vinyl, with painted details and probably made by one of the companies that usually makes Godzilla vinyls (Bandai, M1 or Marmit). We just don't know the size or which Godzilla "year".

It's even more tempting to see that the extra discs in the set will contain some "Godzilla Fantasia" material. I've been trying to get some old laserdiscs of those on ebay, but they don't show up too often and when they do, they aren't cheap.

And at that price you can't afford to not buy it.
