GForever is the Ultimate Godzilla Fan

Isn't that a great video?!  Our founder, Andrew "GForever" Wong, has been recognized as the Ultimate Godzilla Fan by Warner Bros and Legendary.  We are sending letters out to other fansites, retailers, and the UN for official recognition and sponsorship deals... kidding.

So Andrew has everything set and will be on his way to London, this Saturday!  He will go to the premiere of Godzilla on Sunday, and get a few (very few) minutes to speak with God Gareth Edwards.

We're working out what to ask Mr. Edwards, now.  Personally, I want to know what he orders at McDonald's... or his sandwich of choice.

Congratulations to Andrew and plus one!  You lucky little...  I tried to go along, too, but Andrew said he didn't feel that way about me.

Andrew will fill you in on his trip and impressions of the film, soon.  Have a great time, dude, and safe travels!

G2014 High Grades

hgG2014

Well,  I must say that I'm surprised we get word of this before a standard vinyl.  Will we even get one at this point?

So we'll be seeing a few new High Grade pieces from Bandai Japan , this August.  Only real info I've found on this is that he'll be 100mm from toe to tail tip and the price: 300 yen.  So just under four inches and $3.

No word on whether or not these will be manufactured to the quality of old, or if this will be like the 50th Anniversary crap-storm.

Wondercon Edwards interview by ShowbizJunkies

SHowbizJunkies has uploaded a WonderCon interview with director, Gareth Edwards.  We don't hear anything new, but there is a little more info on how they came up with the final size for Godzilla.  We already knew about them wanting G to be both omnipresent and able to hide in the city, but not exacttlt how they came up with it.  Though, I guess it wasn't too hard to figure out...

The filmmakers had a model of the city and model of Godzilla in the computer.  They scaled Godzilla at varying sizes and had him do his thing in the city.  They viewed it from multiple angles at each scale and picked the one that fit best.  Pretty cool!

Forums are up... still

You may have gotten an error when trying to load the forums, recently... or not!  The database went down for about three-four minutes, recently, when our host made some changes on the back end.

The forums worked, except for the forum index, which errored at just the right time to cause a cache issue.  Sorry for the mixup.  We're up and running again, though.

Let Them Fight, Asia Trailer

A MUTO-centric trailer for Asia!  Woohoo!

We get a better look at the beast this time around, as well as a chill-inducing line about Godzilla.  This movie is going to be quite the thrill!

Godzilla opens May 15... It's so close!

Breathing Life into Godzilla, 2014

Monster Island News has a very nice article up about bringing the new Godzilla to life.  The headline wans of spoilers, but unless you didn't know that Godzilla was attacking San Francisco, you're in the clear.  Did I just spoil it for you?  Oops...

g2014-full

There's a bit of news that we haven't discussed, like G's new height of 355 feet or how Andy Serkis was consulted for the project.  I particularly liked the bit about Godzilla's character being something like "the last samurai."

A lone, ancient warrior that would prefer to not be part of the world if he could, but events force him to resurface.

Give it a read, as it quotes many of the other folks under Edwards's direction that did the heavy lifting in bringing us the biggest Godzilla, ever.

WonderCon Footage

No!  Not THAT footage.  We won't be posting the cam vid of the Hawaii scene shown at SXSW and WonderCon, which is totally awesome, by the way.  Instead, we have Gareth Edwards discussing the film.

It's about 25 minutes, but definitely worth a watch.  We don't learn a lot of very new things in here.

For Godzilla's roar, they were not able to reproduce the original means of creation with the resin, glove, and strings, but finally did happen upon something.  Mr. Edwards would not reveal the secret, as it was only revealed to him after the movie was completed!  He said it would ruin it at the time.  However, Gareth did drop the hint that many of the sounds for the creatures come from super high-def microphones played back very slowly.  The exact source of the sounds remains a mystery, for now.

There's also a great story about Gareth completely misinterpreting Cranston's character, Hal, from Malcolm in the Middle.  Why Cranston still agreed to work with the director after that, shows how forgiving the man can be!

Godzilla opens on May 16, with select theaters playing on the 15th!
