A new world opened up for Mark – one populated with superheroes and kaiju (giant monsters like Godzilla and Mothra). He started collecting these vintage and contemporary Japanese vinyl toys and has amassed an amazing collection, and this exhibit displays hundreds of his cool, colorful, unusual toys. On Oct. 25 at 7 p.m., the JANM will host a free screening of the classic monster film, Godzilla.
