Godzilla Stop Motion Movie

This stop motion movie features a star-studded cast of Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, Gigan, King Ghidorah, Gamera, and much more! This flick is a silent film meaning the movie has no dialogue or subtitles to read. You're treated to the video accompanied with sound effects and proper background music. Some stop motion pictures could've been cleaned up a little more, but otherwise a great film to watch. Credit goes to the Japanese film makers who created this movie. Enjoy!

Starting in October, I will introduce my top 10 Kaiju figures (for 2011) based on the Godzilla movie franchise! Every weekend I will write about 2 figures from the countdown starting from #10. My figures are rated on the standards to how they appealed to me since I bought them. The toys will not be based on rarity and value, but what I like the most. All collectors are entitled to their own opinion and don't have to agree with everything on my list. Follow this blog as a member or visit often because Godzilla and his friends/enemies will invade The Rave Corner this Halloween season!

Godzilla Pachinko Machine By Newgin

What?! A Godzilla pachinko game?! That's right everyone! Newgin created a pachinko game based on the popular monster Godzilla (Millenium version) along with his co-stars including Rodan (Millenium version), Anguirus (Millenium version), Gigan (Millennium version), and King Ghidorah. Okay before I get criticized for posting old news, I should point out that this game was released around late summer of 2010.

I am not sure exactly how this game interacts with the story (if there is one), but the cool feature on this game is a combination of animated and exclusive live action fight scenes for this game only. There are also spectacular light displays and all kinds of moving, shaking internal components. I didn't play a pachinko game before, so I'd love to try this one first!

The official website of this game can be found here:

Bandai: Battra (Larva) Standard 8" Release Review

Bandai: Battra (Larva) Standard Release
Insert narrator's voice: "Battra "The Black Mothra," was created by Earth's life force with the sole purpose to defend this planet from anything that causes mass destruction including "Man." Thousands of years ago, an advanced human civilization lived in harmony on Earth, until they (Cobra maybe) created a device that controls the climate. This invention upset Earth, which sent Battra on a rage to destroy the device. Battra completed the mission, but continued his rampage much to the expense of Earth. Mothra arrived on time to stop Battra resulting in a battle that destroyed the existing human race in flash floods. After the war, Battra rested in the Atlantic Ocean while Mothra settled in Infant Island to stay for many years. In 1992, a small meteor struck the surface of the Earth which awoke Battra and caused him to continue his destruction since thousands of years ago."

Official COBRACON 2011 promo by NGSMOOV


Charapro: Kokushi Muso Deluxe Figure Review

Kokushi Muso is another alter ego of professional wrestler Keiji Mutoh, but is only seen in a few shows. Kokushi Muso is based on his tag-team partner, Hakushi's monk character. Hakushi means "White Angel," while Kokushi Muso is "Black Angel." I like this character because Keiji Mutoh combines the style of Hakushi and the Great Muta. In other words, Kokushi's style is mostly resembles Hakushi, but will use poison mist and the shining wizard when needed!

Kokushi Muso Deluxe Figure made by Charapro is amazing! I should point out that wrestling figures in Japan does lack articulation compared to toys made from Jakks and Mattel. To some collectors, lack of pose-ability sucks because I guess they can't do much with it, so they stay away from Japanese figures. They do have a point and there's nothing wrong with that. As for me, I think the toys are unique and worth collecting.
