The original GODZILLA (ゴジラ, Gojira, 1954) holds up as one of the greatest science fiction films ever made, a monster classic that has spawned six decades of sequels, imitations, and remakes. It is also crtically acclaimed... in 1984, the prestigious film journal Kinema Junpo rated it among the top 20 Japanese films of all time. In 1989, a published survey of 370 Japanese movie critics, Nihon Eiga Besuto 150 (Best 150 Japanese Films), ranked Godzilla the 27th greatest Japanese feature ever made. This year sees both Godzilla's 60th anniversary and the worldwide release of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures' new GODZILLA remake. As the King of the Monsters once again takes center stage, Rialto Pictures boss Bruce Goldstein felt the time was right to revisit the original film in a big way. With the assistance of their associates at The Criterion Collection, Rialto will bring a new restoration of GODZILLA (reconstructed from the original camera negative) to theaters across the United States for the first time. To avoid any confusion with the new GODZILLA remake, Rialto is marketing the restored version with the title GODZILLA: THE JAPANESE ORIGINAL. Continued...

In addition to being a solo J-Pop artist, Haruka Tomatsu is a popular voice actress and a member of the girl group Sphere along with Minako Kotobuki, Ayahi Takagaki and Aki Toyosaki. "Hikari Gift" is her first solo single since last July's "Pachi Pachi Party." This is likely because she's been quite busy with her voice actress career, having worked on roughly 20 movies and shows last year, four of which will be released in 2014: HappinessCharge PreCure!, Sakura Trick, Wake Up, Girls! and Yokai Watch.

Future Factory “Sierra” Strike Tortoise 1/12 scale

Prometheum5's collected works - 12 February, 2014 - 06:56

ff-sierra-tortoises

One last Strike Tortoise built on the old DX Tortoise body also showed up at the Monster Kolor shop for Future Factory.   I still need to convert the Strike parts for use on the Mini size.  The Strike Tortoise has always been well received, so that’ll happen sooner than later.

Future Factory may be over, but you can still pick up a couple of Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries 3D printed mecha action figures from the Monster Kolor web shop.  After that, PRHI will be in full force at Super Robots Giant Monsters in Lowell, MA on March 29!
