"The Faceless Star": Haruo Nakajima.

This made me tear up a bit, I'm exicted to see what else comes of it. If there's anymore information about it, feel free to share.

Love this! Tempted to buy some Suntory as a thank you to the company. ;)

Ooh, they make a gin that's not too pricy at BevMo!
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

The transition into the GVKG theme is amazing. I loved this.

I love this! Such an awesome tribute to Haruo Nakajima. It's great to see them using that 54 suit recreation more, I really hope Toho ends up using suitimation in their future films. I like how it ends with the words "keep fighting", pretty much my motto. Also speaking of Boss I wish that Godzilla jacket was available for sale!

It's not easy being a suit actor, but those who did, like Nakajima and many others, brought great characters to life and excited audiences. Nakajima and all of them would appreciate that short video.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

A coffee commercial to surpass the Wilkins Coffee commercials.
Good to see another tribute to Haruo Nakajima, he deserves plenty more for all the times he risked his life on set to bring Godzilla & the other monsters to the big screen.

I need more suitmation. This looks FANTASTIC in my opinion, and I would love to see a Godzilla film shot in a style similar to this. I have to say I am becoming a bit disillusioned with CGI and find it overused.

Also, fantastic tribute to Nakajima. Certainly inspiring.

I’m in agreement. While I loved Shin, it does make me hope that they don’t abandon suitmation because you can see the results now when they have modern tech and higher budgets. I don’t think suits are gone boys.
