    He's back! After nine years away from the big screen, the Big G reappeared for his 30th anniversary in THE RETURN OF GODZILLA. Produced by Godzilla's creator Tomoyuki Tanaka and directed by Koji Hashimoto, the picture returns the uber-kaiju to the ultimate antagonist he was always intended to be. Watch as he devastates Tokyo after being resurrected by an underwater volcano and thrill to the dramatic and explosive musical score by Reijiro Koroku!

    Having previously worked with Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, Koroku was the perfect choice to score the Big G's triumphant return, creating no less than three themes for everybody's favourite kaiju. Listen to the rumbling low-frequencies and powerful brass attacks as he ravages a power plant and fights the Japanese Self Defence Forces (JSDF) and swoon to the love theme for Maki and Naoko. Koroku also wrote exciting pieces for the JSDF and the Super-X, a particular machine designed to fight Godzilla. Still, it's his respect and reverence for the Big G that makes THE RETURN OF GODZILLA such a success. The score ends with vocalists The Star Sisters lamenting Godzilla's disappearance, cementing the place he has in our hearts. "Take care now, Godzilla, my old friend." (Charlie Brigden)

    “In conjunction with TOHO, We are INSANELY excited to be bringing you the first in our extensive HEISEI series of GODZILLA soundtracks with the classic RETURN OF GODZILLA the 16th film of the series and a direct sequel to the original 1954 GOJIRA. It's one of our favourite movies of this era and features a darker and more sombre tone than previous films and an incredible score by Reijiro Koroku. The artwork is by Henry Abrams, whose stunning and intricate pencil drawings capture the majesty and beauty of GODZILLA perfectly. The package features a pop-up gatefold and is a numbered edition of 2500. We have a bunch of incredible Godzilla titles in the pipeline that all features fantastic original art and stunning package design,” said Mondo Creative Director Music Spencer Hickman.

    COLLECTIBLES

    Godzilla has had many looks through the years -- at this point, a new costume or aesthetic is anticipated with each new appearance. Mondo is commemorating The King of Monsters' varied designs through his decades-long reign with Mondo’s latest collectible line: GODZILLA MUSEUM. The GODZILLA MUSEUM line of small-scale collectible statues celebrates all iterations of Godzilla's history, from the most iconic looks to new artist interpretations. These roto vinyl/PVC statues come with a museum-style base and plaque, allowing you to display the figures on or off the base. Ideally sized at 7.5" tall (8.25" when on its base), these statues can fit on any display case, big or small. The ’54 Gojira collectible is the third statue in the Godzilla Museum series. The previous releases in the series have included the very first official release of a collectible based on the killer 1970s animated series, and a physical rendering of the King of Monsters from a look created in a stunning Mondo Godzilla poster by artist Attack Peter.
