When Godzilla wades ashore, he usually leaves a swath of destruction behind him. But if you’re travelling to San Diego Comic-Con, the only swath of destruction might be to your wallet, courtesy of Mondo’s many Godzilla and Godzilla-adjacent releases. Don’t worry if you’re not attending the con: some of these will also be available on the MondoShop website. But you can worry about them selling out quickly, since they’re limited, so… I don’t know, just worry as much as you feel is appropriate.

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II Soundtrack San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Colorway

The fan-favourite robot with the Jack Nicholson grin gets this retro vinyl from Rocom and sculptor Tufan Sezer. The difference from the original is the rosy decor on Jet’s metal frame, but look how happy he is about it! Only 400 figures will be available, either at Mondo’s Comic-Con booth beginning Wednesday, July 20, or for pre-order on MondoShop this Thursday for $US95 ($132).

Godzilla vs. Biollante Poster (Sofubi Variant)

The poster so nice I’ll show it twice. Tom Whalen’s gorgeous take on Godzilla’s battle with the giant plant monster Biollante will be $US85 ($118) at Mondo’s Comic-Con booth on Wednesday, July 20. Snap it up quickly, as only 150 copies were made.

Biollante Cherry Blossom Glow-in-the-Dark Vinyl Figure

The hideous plant monster Biollante decided to forgo his natural mutated rose form to go cherry blossom-viewing with Jet Jaguar in this figure both designed, sculpted, and painted by Hector Arce. Unlike Jet, however, he’ll only be available for pre-order on MondoShop beginning Thursday at $US125 ($174).

Hedorah Anatomy/Little Godzilla Posters

Which is more horrifying, the interior organs of Hedorah the Smog Monster or the manic smile of Little Godzilla, echoing the nightmare that is his hideous offspring Minilla? Only 220 of the former poster by Mike Sutfin will be available for $US50 ($69), while the latter poster by Jason Edmiston is limited to 175 and $US45 ($62), so you tell me. The Hedorah poster will go on sale at MondoShop on Thursday, while an orange/black/white variant of Hedorah and the Lil’ G poster will be sold at Mondo’s con booth.

Godzilla vs. Takoro Poster

Godzilla finally tussles with Attack Peter’s beloved, self-engineered kaiju Takoro in this poster by, who else? Attack Peter. It’s $US100 ($139), limited to 120 copies, and will be available at the Mondo booth on Friday, July 22.

Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster Movie Poster

This gorgeous poster for Godzilla’s first match-up with Ghidorah comes from Kim Jung-Gi. The white poster is $US100 ($139) and limited to 220 copies and will be available online, while the more vintage-tinted poster is $US150 ($208), limited to 120, and will only be available at Mondo’s booth — both on Saturday, July 23.
