Godzilla: King of the Monsters is going to premiere soon on May 31st and to celebrate that, the Godzilla Store in Tokyo, Japan is doing something. The Store will be bringing over a whole bunch of official merchandise to the US, that’s traditionally only found at the stores in Japan. So fans who have a nearby participating Kinokuniya should check as these Godzilla pop-up shops should already be in operation.
Are There Any Advantages Which Come With These Godzilla Pop-Up Stores In US?
It’s not really that uncommon for the Kinokuniya Stores to carry Godzilla merchandise but these pop-up shops will offer something more. They will have a number of specialized bits and pieces which aren’t found at other kinokuniya stores.
The press release says that:
“At Godzilla Store Pop Up Shops, you can find an abundance of unique visual books, a whopping 12 of the Godzilla ‘B SIDE LABEL’ stickers, various Godzilla T-shirts including the coveted TOMODACHI shirt featuring Godzilla and Jet Jaguar, a Second-Form Shin Godzilla Cable Bite, several Godzilla straps, and so much more!”
