I think they would do well to take a little time off to fix a much bigger problem ;)
One of the handmade Chibis made by Alex Merdich. Only 40 made and are available only at Kaiju Gaiden’s Kickstarter
Hey everyone! We are approaching the end of day 2 of the Kickstarter, so far the support has been fantastic but we still need more help!
The directors have already called me…

Nowadays I kinda’ prefer kaiju to have slightly varied origins. They can be connected, but their individuality is what makes them cool and special.
if anyone comes across Godzilla the Series Trendmasters figures for sale
please tell me. if you own these figures, i’d be willing to try to buy them from you.
Unfortunately, that’s an unlikely occurrence. After G’98 toys sold…
True story: A few years ago, at one of my first G-Fests, I spotted the Zilla figure on the top-right of this catalog. It was available for $400.
I ran back to my table with the intent on earning the money selling my art (this was before I was working full-time).
After denying myself lunch and scrounging up JUUUUST enough to pay for it…somebody had come by and bought it for $450.
Here’s to the one that got away.

I think most of those people are making an obvious joke, because making obvious jokes at the expense of Godzilla movies is an easy sell for comedians and has been for literally decades, regardless on whether those jokes actually ring true or not.
I mean, saying the Mutos were “just mating” is purposely misinterpreting the events of the film in the Mutos’ favor. The beginning of the movie shows they mate by laying their eggs in the corpses of other kaiju. If nothing else, Godzilla has a valid reason to want to stop these things from reproducing, as they actively prey upon his kind. For Godzilla, it is at least a fight for his survival, if not also vengeance for his fallen kin.
Then you have the fact that, to breed, the mutos DESTROY EVERYTHING IN THEIR WAY. They destroy nuclear power plants, killing thousands to do so. They run rampant through towns, crushing all in their wake. They act with no care for anything around them.
In their original era - made up Radiation Era of the Legendary Godzilla movie universe - this wouldn’t have been a bad thing, because the environment was prepared for monsters of this size and shape and behavior to be running around. It had checks and balances - Godzillas to eat mutos and keep their population down, mutos to occaisonally kill and lay eggs in Godzillas to keep their population controlled, etc. But the modern era is not built for such fauna, and as a result the Mutos could quite possibly destroy the world.
In other words, the Mutos are an INVASIVE SPECIES, the kind that fucks up whole environments because they DO NOT BELONG THERE. Like real world invasive species, they are only a problem because we, humanity, brought them out of their natural environment and into one that is not prepared for them as a byproduct of our own selfish decisions. And, like real invasive species, the only way to solve this problem, regrettable as it may be, is to either relocate them or exterminate them.
Since no one in the Legendary Godzilla verse has established a monster island yet, we’re left with the awful task of extermination - and we’re lucky that Godzilla, an animal that has adapted to live in harmony with the rest of the world in the Legendary verse, rides into town and does the job for humanity, since humanity is just as incompetent at solving this problem as we are in real life.
Hell, if we really wanted to dig deep, we could talk about how the two opposing kaiju factions in the movie represent the philosophical dichotomy humanity has when it comes to our relationship with nature: the mutos, which are by far the larger faction (two adults and several thousand babies), support utter dominion of the planet, regardless of how many will die in their need to (over)reproduce and (over)consume; while Godzilla, the minority, wants to make sure there is a future for himself and live in relative harmony with the rest of the world, consuming only what he needs and entering a conflict only when necessary. But then I might get accused of reading too much into the simple monster movie about “lol Godzilla the cockblock lol”.
'Cause in the end, no matter how many paragraphs I write on it, a good chunk of people want this movie to be stupid, silly, and something they can laugh at, and nothing you say will change their minds. Most of them write at Cracked.com.
Dammit, Tyrantis. Took the words right out of my brain.
