    Godzilla's damage was to buildings and the like, not to the minds of millions upon millions of humans, which makes that thing the real monster!! :)

    i can't wait to see the godzilla model ! i saw the movie last week and it was awesome! i think that they (hollywood) redeemed itself from the giant iguana on steroids film. when will the model be available to build?

    Well, I suppose there is one. Both, as well as the new movie 'zilla, are operated by a guy in an uncomfortable suit. Zathros will be happy to know that none of them are Robert Young, though.

    I would like to see them fight! there must be enough costumes in LA to make a short, like Godzilla vs bambi was. you could make millions with it, stomping barney down and burning him with the heat ray from our even more famous hero giant lizard.

    Wow, the big G really gets people talking!:) Saw it three times, once on IMAX 3-D but it was almost sold out so waaaayyy to close to the front and to the side - I don't think they should have those seats in the theatre or sell tickets for them - but I did get to see it at the time I wanted so can't complain too much. Now its just wait for the Blu-ray and the sequel(s)...:D
    Trying to finish Lego Luke so I can start on this one. Hope my already printed pages don't dry out and get too "crackly" for folding.

    My favorite is the '75 cookie monster version...

    Finally, getting to start on this one! Had several trial prints lying around so decided to do a practice build on the head - and fulfill an earlier prediction...;)
    The top and bottom jaws may be at different scales. Not too difficult considering I can't read the instructions, but mountain and valley folds are standard.- and the numbers 1,2,3...:D
    Looks like he's going to be a bit dark.

    Let's cut some paper (and not that thick chrome stuff!)...

    Here we have the first two pieces and then assembled.
    Much easier to color the edges with a black Sharpie on this color of model.

    Looks like Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah will be in the next movie! :)
    Unfortunately I only have Mothra and King Ghidorah as future builds. I have not seen a Rodan book. :(
