I read neither “Godzilla” nor “Shogun Warriors” as comic books. The comic books were based on imported Japanese toys from popular movies and anime shows. The toys were put out by Mattel.

The person who negotiated the licensing deal passed on licensing a 20th Century Fox movie called “Star Wars.” Oops.

I had the 24″ tall “Mazinga” giant robot in 1976. One fist could launch spring-loaded plastic rockets that could injure kids and pets. The spring-loaded mechanism caused the giant robot toys to disappear from the market by 1980.
