DISCLAIMER:

I'm speaking for myself and the rest of the staff of the site when I say we love you guys, without the fans this site and Godzilla himself would be nothing. So saying that, I want you to know that we are not doing this to spoil anyone's fun or to be power hungry a-holes, we just want to be as organized as possible because, let's face it, with the movie nearing the site will only get more and more crowded.

Knowing this we're gonna try to control the site posts where we know it'll get hectic: the merchandising. We understand everyone wants to give their reviews, updates, and so on with the merchandising; especially since it'll vary from figures, to apparel, to other various forms of merchandising. But you see, the forums have already reached over 1500 different discussions/topics with just Godzilla 2014 alone, which is crazy enough, so we wanna try and control the discussions before it gets crazier.

So as of tomorrow, when the embargo lifts, there's gonna be a few policies we'll be looking out for as of then. So if I bored you with the details here's a summary of what's going down:

- A single "Merchandise Thread" has been made and continues to grow strong in posts (link given at the bottom), here you will post everything merchandising; whether you find something new in the stores, or you wish to share your reviews of stuff you bought, or if you find something new online (the NECA and Sideshow stuff for example), and even if you wanna share your 2014 collection, etc.

- Any topics related to merchandising that could easily have been put in the "Merchandising Thread" will be locked and we will try our best to direct you to it for you to post there. Please don't give us angry messages or e-mails, understand what we're trying to do. Plus, like I said, we're not doing this to spoil fun or to "appear above" anyone, it's for the best of the organization of the site.

- If you have a merchandise related topic you wish to create but want to know if it's worth being seperate from the normal "Merchandise Thread" contact me or any of the other moderators/admins about it. If it's worth being seperate, we'll allow it; no locks!

If you have any other questions, like stated above, contact me or any of the other staff on the site. Once again this is for the good of the site, it's been a little crazy lately controlling discussions as it is, with the embargo being lifted tomorrow it'll get worse. Thank you for your cooperation and we love all of you. It's a mere 2 months from here to the movie, so bear with us and enjoy the ride!

THANKS FOR READING!

@KINGKAIJUGOJIRA This is NOT the merchandising thread. I'm glad you asked, it'll be posted later today and I'll edit this topic with a link to it. Oh and if you search "Godzilla 2014" on deviantart it should be one of the first results. ;)

I completely agree with you. There's no need for repeat topics, and I'm pretty sure that like you said, this website is going to be crazy tomorrow if you don't do this. I think it's a great idea.

HOLY CRAP THE EMBARGO ENDS TOMORROW! I just realized that. Now I get why your making the Merchandise thread. Also when I was typing the first sentence, I kept hearing Peter Griffin from Family Guy say it. Can't you imagine that. Peter Griffin saying that. I can.

For the sake of confusion we'll probably lock this one down before we make the new one. I'm glad so many agree with this decision though. We just want everyone (or as many as possible) to be on the same page. There's no reason to make entirely new threads about how you pre-ordered a toy or found a new image of the latest figure...etc... We can have one thread for that and everyone can sound off every opinion and thought they have about it there without making repeat topics or topics that are nothing more than sub-topics of other threads.

The majority of the topics made in the Godzilla 2014 section are repeat threads. I mean, come on fellas, how ridiculous is it that a forum section about one movie that has yet to come out has 1,500 discussions and another forum section about a 28 movie film series spanning 60 years has only 296 discussions? In truth it's because the Classic Godzilla section has far less repeat topics than the Godzilla 2014 section. We need minimize this as much as possible.

I like the idea of this.

 

Too bad over excited fans aren't going to bother reading any of this and they are probably going to post stuff anyway.

 

Mods, your work will be cut out for you in the next few days. Have fun.

I love the idea of one thread for the American Godzilla merchandise. I was browsing Godzilla stuff when I stumbled upon I think are legit American Godzilla merchandise.

Let me introduce them to you... (the site I found these didn't give much on where these were found, so until we can confirm these treat these as "possible" merchandise)

1: Looks like a production image for a kids American Godzilla t-shirt. The Godzilla design matches the American Godzilla so this maybe legit.

 

2: I think this is a logo, but for what I'm not sure. It's the state of Texas with the word Godzilla in it and the full body outline of the American Godzilla!

 

3: We've seen a zoomed in version of this pic, which shares the same pose as seen on the "Light and Sound" figure. This only shows most of the body as Godzilla wades through the water. Sadly this is the biggest I could find so detail is very small.

 

I believe in Jesus Christ, who's my Lord and Savior.

@TRUE AMERICAN GODZILLA This isn't actually the merchandise thread. It'll be made in a little bit before the embargo ends, I'll make sure to lock this thread once the merchandising thread is up don't worry! :) This thread is merely a warning and insurance in case someone complains we "never said anything". Those are some excellent finds though! You should definitely add it to the thread once it arrives!

Alright guys I'm locking this thread, the only purpose this topic serves now is a set of policies people can read at any time. Thanks again for your cooperation!
