True :lol: I guess as long as you can convince them of the merchandising opportunities they might let you do about whatever.

I'd be more concerned over wasting my life's savings over such a project.

Not entirely sure where this photo is from but I'll never get tired of seeing how these suits are built. It'd be nice if they could release a short documentary showing how it all came together once its finished (but knowing Toho, they might lock it behind a paywall :lol: ).

I have a gut feeling that, no matter how it turns out when it's done, it's not going to look nearly as interesting or dynamic as that original suit.

Looking great. Can't wait to see Showa Gigan and GFW Gigan standing side by side.

IIRC, someone said there was going to be something with both this new Showa suit and the FW suit. Either way, I'm sure we'll eventually see them together on display sometime.

They already built it so might as well use it.

Honestly didn't even see Gigan in his eyes until someone pointed it out.

Pretty neat. It'll certainly be something to see the original Godzilla in a battle for the first time. Wonder how "mobile" he'll be.

Still hoping Gigan 2004 shows up too. That "Godzilla vs. Gigan Rex" trailer has multiple Gigans in it, too, so maybe?

G-Fes, or Godzilla Fest. It's been happening every year for a few years now. Usually they use it to promote new films sell merchandise. It used to be a physical event in Tokyo, but thanks to Corona it's all online now.

At 1:18, he mentions a tokusatsu miniseries with Godzilla and Gigan facing off in it. Maybe it's a subtitle translation error, but does that mean it's going to be a couple of shorts with the Godzilla and Gigan suits?

That would be awesome, actually. I remember a rumor/report/whatever at the start of the year we'd end up seeing the new Showa Gigan suit alongside the FW one. Not sure if there's any truth to that now, or if that means we'd actually see BOTH team up (that'd be insane), but damn if that wouldn't be something special.

I don’t know, but I’m certainly not complaining!

I would certainly hope not given that its crowdfunded. Funnily enough, the first thing I did when the Godzilla vs. Hedorah short dropped was download it. I wasn't expecting them to remove it, but I like to save short videos like that. Glad I did...

Hm, interesting. I'm doubtful we'll see two Godzillas, so I wonder if this means the 1954 poster isn't for this short film? IDK.

By the way, Wikizilla has been collecting a gallery of behind-the-scenes pics. Pretty cool stuff, sweet miniature work as always.
