Recognized by Guinness World Records as the longest continuously running movie franchise, Godzilla is a multi-media series featuring the titular giant lizard-like monster who is often referred to as "Godzilla King of the Monsters," or "Gigantis." The first Godzilla film, titled Godzilla, released in Japan in 1954 and despite actually dying at the end of it – spoiler! – there have since been over 30 films, plus comic books, novels, television shows, and video games based on the gigantic ancient lizard and the character’s popularity has only grown. The monster’s origins have varied – in the first film Godzilla was the result of American nuclear weapons testing whereas in more recent incarnations of character have depicted the monster as a “titan,” a remnant of a bygone era on Earth millions of years ago who only awakens when there is a shift in the balance of nature, acting almost as the planet’s natural defense system – but regardless of the who, what, and the how, Godzilla has been hugely popular and is a pop culture icon today. Thus, there’s loads of Godzilla merchandise abound, and with Entertainment Earth’s selection there’s no shortage of toys, action figures, Funko Pop! Vinyls, statues, and more.
