In honor of Japan's Godzilla Fes (Festival) 2018, a reproduction of the original ShodaiGoji has been created! Based off the suit from the original Godzilla (1954), Yuji Sakai (concept artist for Godzilla 2000 & sculpting artist for many S.H. Monsterarts kaiju) created the replica. The original 1954 costume was crafted by Teizo Toshimitsu and his staff.
The suit will be showcased at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya on November 3rd, Godzilla's 64th anniversary. It will also be seen at an Eiji Tsuburaya museum January 2019.
What do you think of the reproduction? Does Sakai's interpretation live up to Toshimitsu's original? Sound off in the comments below.
