Topps Digital continues to introduce new products on the WAX Blockchain. Topps is celebrating Toho’s franchise by bringing the studio’s monsters, including Godzilla, to NFTs via the WAX blockchain on March 31 at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.
In May 2020, Topps announced a partnership with the Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX). On March 31, 2021, at 1 p.m. ET, Topps Digital will be releasing a new collection of NFTs on WAX that focuses on the universe of Godzilla and the classic films. Fans will be introduced to Godzilla’s origins and the many monsters from the series such as Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah and Mechagodzilla.
“We’ve been one of the first brands to fully embrace the potential of non-fungible tokens (NFTs),” says Tobin Lent, vice president and general manager, digital, The Topps Company. “By partnering early with WAX and their state-of-the-art trading platform, we’ve been able to create a fun and accessible digital ecosystem for fans with all levels of experience. We are excited to debut our latest NFT set, featuring iconic imagery from the Godzilla franchise, and build on our initial successes of digital collecting to include interactive elements, increased security and transparent transactions.”
The release of Godzilla Collection joins a growing portfolio of officially licensed Topps NFT collectibles, including Topps’ owned IP, Garbage Pail Kids.
“We are constantly looking for exciting new ways for fans to connect with the Godzilla brand, and the Topps Digital Godzilla collection is something we’ve never offered before,” says Lora Cohn, managing director, Toho International. “Topps Digital has been at the forefront of the physical and digital card collectible space, so we are thrilled to work with their team on this offering. It’s no secret that NFTs are exploding in popularity right now, so we’re excited to give fans the opportunity to expand their Godzilla collections through the blockchain.”
There are more than 160+ unique pieces of art in this collection including comic covers, motion cards, original illustrations, Chibi style animations, classic Topps “Rookie cards” and more. Each Topps collectible will hold a uniquely minted number ID that can be found on the WAX Blockchain, proving each asset’s authenticity. Learn more about how to collect yours here.
