American versions of Toho's Godzilla series

Does anyone know if there are good preservations in HD of the more obscure US versions of Godzilla movies, i.e. Gigantis The Fire Monster (Godzilla Raids Again), Godzilla vs. The Thing (Mothra vs. Godzilla), Godzilla 1985 (The Return of Godzilla), etc?

I’m not really that much of a movie purist. I really should’ve thought my name out a bit more.

There are quite a few. Red Menace did some, most notably Godzilla 1985. There are a couple of versions floating around for Godzilla vs. The Thing (including the frontier missile sequence). I haven’t seen a proper Gigantis restoration yet, but I think there’s one or two floating around. I think most of the projects have a thread on the Toho Kingdom forums (https://www.tohokingdom.com/forum/), but they aren’t super easy to find amongst all the other forum topics.

Thanks!
Where (roughly) would I find these?
