Godzilla: King of the Monsters

I've no words for the phenomenon that was my obsession with old Japanese Godzilla VHS tapes growing up.  The toys, the games, and the idea of gargantuan monsters fighting each other in cities with quasi-wrestling moves and humorous taunting gestures.  It was the best old school Japanese sci-fi  had to offer.  Monster Brains blogger Aeron Alfrey compiled this amazing set of 1960s-1980s Godzilla posters, with some Polish/Czech posters mixed in, posted in the beginning.  The box art of the Godzilla VHS tapes always fascinated me, and even though the movies were cheesy, the character designs were not.
