    From DVD Newsflash's Facebook!:

    "ATTENTION!! ATTENTION!! ALL GODZILLA FANS!!

    I emailed my contact at Sony last night asking if she knew if any of Sony's Godzilla flicks were gonna get the blu-ray treatment next year and she replied this morning telling me, yes, plans are in the works, but no dates have been confirmed yet!!!"

    I really hope they throw the titles they own out in a box set or something, it's gonna be damn expensive if they all go to twilight time!

    Sony only owns rights to the Heisei (KG and up) and the Millennium series. I will pick them up no doubt, but would love to get some more Showa movies on BD! Fortunately Media Blasters got their shit worked out with Toho, so a Megalon BD looks like it will actually happen now.

    This will probably be based on how well the upcoming US Godzilla will do. For example the Fright Night Blu-ray got tossed Twilight Time's way by Sony when the remake bombed.

    So that also means if the new Godzilla bombs they'll get licensed out. That's win-win for us! :banana:

    Awesome, Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster is a real trip and would love to have that above all else on Blu-ray.

    Fortunately I never got any of these three on DVD so I'll be sure to snatch up these Blu-ray discs

    Those are FUN movies. I'd jump on 'em quick before things change. Toho has, in the past, yanked some releases before I had a chance to buy 'em. I'm not takin' any chances.

    Good god I hate the modern day Toho. Look at that stupid press release, every single mention of a character marked with an 'R' or a 'TM'. Yes Toho, calm down, we get it, the monsters in the Godzilla® universe are some of the most heavily copyrighted and trademarked characters on the planet.

    (And yes, if you do business with them and you miss one mention of the fact that Ebirah™ is trademarked, you probably will hear from them)

    Woohoo! I hope more G films hit BD. Only 3 G BDs in the US so far (well technically 4 since the original was released twice), we need much more!

    I LOVE Smog Monster. I actually just bought a Korean DVD of it on Amazon because I have a little one who is loving Godzilla moves and that is my favorite one. I will definitely upgrade to Blu!!

    Cover art has been posted over on Sci-Fi Japan, along with the MSRP:
    Holy crap $14.98?

    Great artwork - I was afraid they were going to update the art with that tired scratchy-scratchy grit crap or bad photoshop with a lensflare and diffused color.
    Nice prices, too. One thing I'd love to see - and I know they are available on Youtubes - are the USA TV spots and trailers (UPA, AIP, kiddie matinees, ect).

    Yeah, they kinda remind me of Classic Media's releases of the Shōwa Godzilla films they own.

    WOW! This should probably have its own thread. All time favorites of mine that I would love to buy day and date.

    Better not be an April Fool's joke!

    http://www.amazon.com/King-Kong-vs-Godzilla-Blu-ray/dp/B00I3C1T6G/

    Say, what happened to the Amazon link on top anyways?

    Preorders are live for the three Kraken Godzilla blus -- they're currently sitting at a low $10.49 preorder price. I snapped up all three and threw on the two Universals. I've added direct links to my Upcoming Releases page, since they can be a little tough to find on their own. (Amazon's search engines have been wonky for months now.)
