Here’s our Godzilla boxset, also featuring a bunch of non-Godzilla movies?
Can I say “da fuq” on this board?

I made my way over there when the crowd subsided. I asked any info on the boxset that was rumored, including the target online info.
Their response: “Expect an announcement from Criterion this week.”
Six laserdisc titles (Godzilla vs. Mothra, Godzilla vs. Monster Zero, Godzilla's Revenge, Terror of Mechagodzilla, and both the original and U.S. versions of the '54 film) got far enough to have UPCs and catalog numbers assigned, though not spine numbers. David Kalat referred to it as a "set" when he was interviewed about the Gojira/King of the Monsters DVD/Blu, but the Laserdisc Database has individual entries with $39.95 price tags, so they may have been meant as standalone releases. I've never seen an explanation for their cancellation, but Paramount released English-dubbed, pan-and-scanned versions of all of them except the original Gojira, so perhaps Criterion wasn't able to obtain the necessary materials to do OAR releases with Japanese audio, or they were planning to license them from Paramount (which only happened once in the LD era, with Robinson Crusoe on Mars) and that fell through.
