Right after I enjoyed a matinee showing of “Barbie” at the Alpine Cinema in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn I just had to stop into our neighborhood comic book store Galaxy Comics to see what was going one. After a brief catchup with the staff and perusing the racks once again I noticed the flyer down below in the post that was announcing the first-ever “Kaiju Brooklyn” event.
About The Event: KaijuBrooklyn is a one day kaiju themed event, celebrating all things Japanese giant monsters like Godzilla, Ultraman, Power Rangers, and more! The show will take place inside the popular and massively sized Industry City at the Tom Kane theater in building 5. Kaiju Brooklyn will feature plenty of kaiju toy vendors as well as kaiju artists selling prints and much much more along with a screening inside the complex at the end of the event.
Confirmed Vendors: Vampire robots, Seismic toys, Muteki sales, Mint in box, Viscerally yours, Bill Cotoure, Dope Pope, Gino Patti, Jeff Zornow, Ultrazilla, Rolling pins, Speakeasy of strength collectibles, Steve chanks, John Gebbia aka DOSE, Robo7, Tokyobronx, Kaiju sketches, Kamen Rider and Power Ranger Cosplayers and More to Come.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sure sounds like a lot of fun and I’m pretty much a lifelong fan of these kinds of monster movies with my favorite of them all starting with Godzilla in “Destroy All Monsters”. I think that I pointed out this was the first film that I remembered seeing so many moons ago. Some of the scheduled exhibitors are well known to the PiercingMetal High Command as we’ve met with them and chatted extensively at some of the bigger New York City conventions over the years. A listing will be created on our regional calendar and as more information is share with outlets like this one I will be sure to share it right here on the website. They are keeping the screening very hush hush at the moment and that’s fine because a little suspense never hurt anyone. What do you readers think about this convention announcement? You can let me know what you think down in the comments section below. See you next time.
