Gamera is the friend of all children!

Here are some fantastic Gamera posters. I always get a kick out of these, even though it's always the same basic design with these Kaiju posters. Giant monsters attempting to kill one another (or a train), destroyed city in the background (usually in flames), screaming Japanese people running for their lives and/or looking shocked and amazed at the bottom of the poster. I've love to get my hands on a couple of these, you know if I had money to throw around.

Daikaijû Gamera (The Giant Monster Gamera 1965)

Gamera tai Daimaju Jaiga (Gamera vs. Jiger 1970)
With Japanese Buddy Holly!
Gamera tai Shinkai kaijû Jigura (Gamera vs. the Deep Sea Monster Zigra 1971)
