For a few years, I have been putting extra change into a Godzilla piggybank that I got as a gift (pics inside). Now, of course, I cannot figure out how to open it. The vinyl is very heavy and thick. The plug rotates, but isn't threaded. If you press or pull directly on the plug while rotating, it will move in/out about 1mm. Does anyone have a piggybank with this kind of plug? How do you open it? I assume power tools would work, but I don't own any, and I'd prefer nondestructive solutions, if possible. [more inside]
You guys did so great with last year's Dr. Who party playlist! This year, our six year old is having a Godzilla birthday party, and we need tunes. [more inside]
How did audiences in Japan 9 years out of WW2 react to the extensive use of war-imagery in the original 1954 Godzilla? [more inside]
I'd like to compile a list of sympathetic monsters/villains, portrayed in any medium--film, fiction, art, music, myth. [more inside]
GodzillaFilter: Help me find the image used here... (I've already tried google images searches for Godzilla and been unsuccessful, and yes I've already emailed the linked website in question. No response yet...) [more inside]
In the mid eighty's there was a comedian that did a piece on godzilla. Basically he acted like a badly dubbed godzilla film with mouth movements out of sync with voice saying "look out" "godzilla's going to trample the city again". Anyone know who he was or remember the sketch?
I have some copyright and trademark questions for the fine folks at AskMe. Ok, so I run this online t-shirt store and I had a design based on Godzilla playing the drums. I know some of the Godzilla movies had passed into the public domain, so I just assumed (or perhaps hoped) that would place my design firmly into fair use territory. Welp, I got a cease and desist from the folks that own the trademark and copyright on Godzilla, so I was just hoping to find out more about my options here. [more inside]
Anyone have information as to when (if?) the restored version of Gojira (Godzilla) that toured movie houses last year is going to make it to DVD? I get nothing but blank stares from retailers and my Google-fu returns nada.
There was a request or two in my original question for an update about where to find bulk wind up godzillas. [more inside]
I'm working on a personal project where I need 100-250 wind-up sparking Godzillas. I've seen them on Archie McPhee, but I haven't been able to find them in bulk anywhere. Where can I find a supplier or someone who would sell in bulk? It's too expensive to go through a normal store, even with a discount.
Where can I buy a high-quality Godzilla suit? Bonus points for finding a miniature town for sale, suitable for stomping.
Godzilla roar, the making thereof. [more inside] [more inside]
