Toho’s classic Godzilla storyline leaves behind the Tokyo and New York skylines as it wades into the decentralized universe with freshly minted collectibles set for auction on the WAX Blockchain.

Appeal To Collectors Complements Forthcoming Premiere Of Godzilla vs. Kong

From trading cards to collectibles, the name Topps has been synonymous with collecting for over 70 years. Little did they know that their digital transformation that materialized back in 2012 would set the stage for today’s NFT-mania and their embrace of non-fungible tokens.

Since disclosing a collaboration with the Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) in May of 2020, Topps has been at the forefront of digitizing sports and entertainment trading cards, helping faithful collectors buy, sell, and trade unique collectibles through WAX’s blockchain-based platform. The platform claims to have been responsible for handling more than 100 million transfers of digital assets to date.

Fast-forward to the present, and Topps is busily expanding its rapidly growing NFT portfolio after partnering with the Godzilla franchise to auction a collection of 160+ unique pieces. The auction, set to commence on March 31st, will accompany the premiere of “Godzilla vs. Kong.†The feature film showcases the legend himself battling it out with King Kong as humankind seeks to destroy both figures once and for all.

A Larger-Than-Life Auction

Topps has teamed up with Toho to bring Godzilla’s history and classic characters from this legendary franchise into the digital realm. Collectors can expect works within this collection to feature Godzilla’s origins alongside images of King Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and many more from the iconic series.

The 160+ art pieces will feature colorful scenes and exciting characters from the series’ multi-decade run in multiple configurations, including original illustrations, Chibi style animations, comic covers, motion cards, and even Topps’ famous classic “Rookie Cards†format.

Each one-of-a-kind piece will be assigned a unique ID number that can be verified on the WAX Blockchain, ensuring that holders of these unique NFTs will be able to guarantee authenticity and proof of ownership.

This latest move follows Topps’ other efforts to expand their NFT portfolio by minting some of their classic trading cards series. One such initiative included the February release of Garbage Pail Kids collectibles on the WAX Blockchain.

The 2021 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight series was also launched in brick-and-mortar stores, including Walmart and Target, with unique codes on each trading card pack designed to help collectors access exclusive collectible NFT awards.

Now that Hollywood embraces NFTs, what’s next in the NFT mania? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
