If you don't know about the University of Illinois Insect Fear Film Festival, see their website. This year's festival saw Mothra as the focus of the event. Your readers might be interested in the great T Shirt with Mothra destroying landmarks on the U of I's campus, see an example here. I think you can order these through the department of Entomology.

Got my X-Plus Guilala with AAB Gamma today from Hobby Link Japan. It is a very dynamic pose, possibly more so than anything in the movie. I have also seen it at Clawmark Toys, if you prefer domestic dealers.

IGN has a new article featuring a hands on look at the upcoming Godzilla:Unleashed video game for the Nintendo Wii. New Images and video are included. IGN says that while they still need to iron out the game a bit, Atari and Pipeworks have really juiced up the action to take full advantage of the Wii functionalities to give the game, as they say, more "oomph". While the characters go unnamed, they state that there will be two original Toho-approved characters added to this title. For those in the New York area, Atari will be showing off Godzilla:Unleashed at this weekends New York Comic Con.
