Back in 1954, Toho studios released a film that would change the course of movie history forever, creating an entirely new genre of storytelling and introducing one of the most iconic characters of all time: Godzilla. Now, The Criterion Collection has bundled 15 of the radiation-breathing kaiju’s most influential films for their 1,000th release.

Dubbed Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films, 1954–1975, this box set is a must-own for lovers of cinema and fans of giant monster flicks alike. Along with a stunning book of exclusive art — including new covers from Chris Wisnia — the film collection includes Blu-ray discs loaded with classics such as the original Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters, King Kong vs. Godzilla, Invasion of the Astro-Monster, and a good deal more. On top of that, a wealth of bonus features — like audio commentary from legendary director Ishiro Honda, a deep dive into the series’ special effects, unused footage, and archival interviews (including one with composer Akira Ifukube) — are also included. With an expected ship date of October 29th, 2019, this monstrous eight-disc collection can be yours for $180.

Purchase: $180
