    GODZILLA Sets His Eyes On North American Retailers

    Diamond Comics To Choose, Market and Distribute 'Zilla Merchandise...



    GODZILLA, 1954 Version: From X Plus USA. The greatest of cinema’s thunder lizards will batter his way into your collection with this 12” tall vinyl figure of Godzilla’s 1954 incarnation.


    Toho Company, Ltd. the producer of twenty-eight GODZILLA motion pictures, and Diamond Comic Distributors, the world’s largest distributor of comics, graphic novels and pop-culture merchandise, have reached an agreement that will bring the best GODZILLA merchandise from Japan and beyond to the United States and Canada. Diamond will choose, market, and distribute the highly desired and sought after GODZILLA toys, comics, collectibles, and lifestyle products, many of which have previously been available only in Japan.

    “GODZILLA has been a pop culture icon since he was unleashed on the world in 1954,” said John Parker, Diamond’s VP- New Business Development. “Now that Diamond can provide a complete offering of awesome GODZILLA merchandise from Toho, the long lost and unavailable figures and collectibles will be easily accessible to the fans of the nuclear beast. With a new film in production and scheduled for release in May, 2014 the monster merchandise will be here just in time to make its way onto the shelves of North American retailers.”

    ”We are very excited to be teaming with Diamond Comic Distributors in this opportunity to share a wider and more complete line of Godzilla merchandise,” said Masaki Fujiwara, General Manager at the Los Angeles office of Toho Co., Ltd. “I hope the Godzilla fans in North America are as thrilled as we are.”

    An initial round of merchandise is featured in Diamond’s May PREVIEWS catalog, and is expected in retail stores starting in July. To pre-order GODZILLA merchandise, find a comic shop near you at www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook. Retailers interested in purchasing GODZILLA products are encouraged to contact Diamond’s New Accounts Department at newaccounts@diamondcomics.com.
