Heisei Godzilla Chronicle Book by Kawakita Awesome Rare
THIS IS A FANTASTIC BOOK by a master of special effects who has passed on. We are sad that that the world has lost a creative filmaker and businessman and a true gentleman Kawakita-san. We obtained the advance copies of this book by attending the Heisei Godzilla Movie Festival running in November 2009 in Tokyo. On each Saturday of the month not only was a movie shown but there was a pre-screening a talk with some of the people involved in the movie production. The book was officially released on November 30th 2009. Kawakita, Koichi is the editor/author of the book and the most recent special effects master of Toho Films. The title is Heisei Godzilla Chronicle; 55 years a star; 20th annniversary. It covers what are known as the Heisei period Godzilla Movies: Godzilla vs Biollante, Godzilla vs King Ghidora, Godzilla vs Mothra, Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, Godzilla vs Space Godzilla and Godzilla vs Destroyer. Each movie is given a separate section which is broken down by the weekly production schedule. There are many behind the scenes and action shots! The photos are from Kawakita's personal collection. Each movie has extensive artist's concept sketches of all the monsters and vehicles. There is the full story board from Godzilla vs Biollante. There are biographies and photos of all the production staff including directors, cinematographers, suit makers, prop makers, model makers-everyone who was involved in the special effects or behind the camera production.

Guilala The X from Outer Space Movie Program 2008
Here is the movie program ONLY available at some of the theaters showing the Newest incarnation of Guilala the X from Outerspace. The movie opened in Japan on July 26, 2008. The program is done in Japanese retro 60's style. The front and back covers resemble kids' books from that period with a place for a record inserted in the back cover. The "record" for the program is done in cardboard and is a promotion for the soundtrack by the band Cosmic Mind. The interior photos and graphics recall artwork from the late 1960's. There is a wonderful drawing of Guilala revealing his internal organs and their process! A diagram of the soundstage during filming of the movie pays  subtle homage to Godzilla. It shows Guilala and the film director doing the Godzilla dance made popular in Godzilla vs Monster Zero! The program is 17 pages all in color! There is a center fold out that  can be seen by gently  opening the perforation along the edge. The artwork is awesome! Also contains photos of the theater exclusive and other merchandise produced for the movie. The dimensions of the program are 8 1/2 inches by 8 inches. Guilala Returns! That loveable Monster X from 1967 has been brought back in Guilala Stikes Back/G8 Summit Attack! The movie by Shochiku Company the same Producers of the 1967 movie was written and directed by Minoru Kawaski. He is an independent director with a definite taste for comedy. Without giving out too much of the movie story, we can say that it brings a new twist to the Daikaiju Genre. Guilala attacks during the  G-8 Summit  and the world leaders respond with methods for combat that reflect their cultural  beliefs. Kawasaki handles this with hilarious satire. A must have for ALL KAIJU LOVERS! Scroll down to see additional photos.
