After the release of their most comprehensive apparel capsule to date in 2019, Mondo is proud to continue its unprecedented relationship with Toho International to present ゴジラ| GODZILLA: A POSTER SHOW opening Friday March 13, 2020.

This extraordinary poster show will tackle the Shōwa, Heisei and Reiwa eras of the Godzilla film catalog with 24 posters by 11 artists, including Godzilla fanatic, Tom Whalen – whose TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA poster can be seen below, and Attack Peter, an artist we’ve been eager to work with who specializes in beautifully handcrafted linocut artwork printed on Lokta paper.

Mondo’s Creative Director of Toys and Collectibles, Brock Otterbacher: “He’s been many things over his many years – a symbol of the horrors of war, nature’s wrath, a hero, a villain, and even the collection of angry souls taking revenge on the living. One thing he’s always been, however, is beloved across many generations of fans, children and adults alike. The King of the Monsters comes to Mondo’s Gallery for a kaiju-sized show featuring the city stomping giant, along with many of his friends and foes. Dozens of fantastic artists bring their appreciation to the various eras of Toho’s monster movies, and I, as a huge fan myself, feel there’s something for every kind of Godzilla fan. Whether you have love for Jet Jaguar, Mothra, Gigan, Destoroyah, or Godzilla himself, I think you’ll be stoked for what we have in store for you!”
