“Godzilla 5th Form Pattern” is more than amazing, with Kamata, Shinagawa, Kamakura Form Figures


(This article was originally posted in Japanese on 11:15 Feb. 19, 2017)

A huge Godzilla 5th Form Pattern (and model for taking photographs), 1080 mm tall and 530 mm in width, shows up at Kaiyodo booth in Wonder Festival 2017 [Winter].


We arrived at Shin Godzilla (Godzilla Resurgence) booth, and found something strange inside the booth.


It's so huge anyway.


In the last cut of the movie, they shot this model from above. It is also printed in the last page of the official artbook The Art of Shin Godzilla.


I have nothing to say except "amazing". It is shown to public for the first time in Wonder Festival 2017 [Winter].


You can see that there are some parts with a texture of Godzilla's skin.


It says "As same as other patterns, Godzilla 5th Form was 3D scanned to make CG, but we directly shot this Godzilla 5th Form Pattern with a still camera, and used the image in the film." The start date of production is March 14, 2016, and the completion date is April 16, 2016.


A pattern of Godzilla 2nd form, commonly known as "Kamata-kun".


It says "We used a semitransparent resin to make this Godzilla 2nd form pattern to express a graphic texture of an aquatic organism which have just brought ashore and its skin is not yet solidified."


It really looks graphic.


Close-up.


160 mm tall (from sole to a tip of a dorsal fin), 590 mm in depth (from top to a tip of a tail), 2.4 kg in weight (including a pedestal: height 20 mm x depth 495 mm x width 155mm), the start date of production: April 20, 2015, the completion date: June 3, 2015.


They also display a pattern of Godzilla 3rd form, commonly known as "Shinagawa-kun".


It says "Godzilla 3rd form is created as Godzilla 2nd form quickly evolves and has just stood up on two legs. There is no rough design, so the pattern of 3rd form was made based on a replica of 2nd form pattern which was accomplished in advance."


Therefore, the face of Godzilla 3rd form extremely resembles to that of 2nd form.


230 mm tall (from top to foot), 555 mm in depth (from top to a tip of a tail), 133 mm in width (from end to end of both legs), 2.5 kg in weight (including a pedestal: height 40 mm x depth 353 mm x width 170mm).


The start date of production: June 11, 2015, the completion date: July 28, 2015. Taking another look, it is so amazing.

And a pattern of Godzilla 4th form (a pattern No.2, for color consideration), commonly known as "Kamakura-san".


"This pattern No.2 was made by coloring a replica of pattern No.1. of Godzilla 4th form. Mr. Taketani imagined Godzilla which appears in the main part of the movie, and he colored the pattern by himself. The body color of Godzilla 4th form makes a clear distinction between that of former Godzilla: inside of the body is red as magma, and it is covered with dark brown skin like lava."


"Inside of the body is red as magma, and it is covered with dark brown skin like lava" indicates this part.


The face of Godzilla 4th form looks more brutal than that of former Godzilla.


712 mm tall (from sole to a tip of a tail) / 512 mm tall (from top to foot), 1055 mm in depth (from top to a tip of a tail), 367 mm in width (from end of left foot to a tip of a tail) / 307 mm in width (from end to end of both legs), 16.5 kg in weight. Pedestal: height 20 mm x depth 600 mm x width 400mm. The start date of production: April 20, 2015, the completion date: June 29, 2015.


Its tail has a strong presence.


Looks so powerful. You may recall the scene which Godzilla moves its tail violently, and may be moved to tears.

To conclude, a large quantities of these kinds of things are printed in Shin Godzilla (Godzilla Resurgence) official artbook The Art of Shin Godzilla, so it's worth to read.
