I think this is a clip from the upcoming 65th birthday celebration. It's Shodaigoji suit with modern day effects.

^ Awesome! It'll be so exciting to see suitmation Godzilla again!

That suit recreation is just so impressive. Honestly, Legendary should try to get it from Toho to promote their new movie. You know, have him walk the red carpet with the actors and such.

Awesome!

Kaiju News Outlet Twitter:
TOHO is making some kind of film using the new Shodaigoji suit! The film will come out on either 1/11/19 or 11/1/19! This looks like a crazy mix of styles from across all the eras of Godzilla! We are going to see Godzilla in a suit again

It's going to be screened in January at the opening of the new Eiji Tsuburaya museum.

I thought it was just like...a commercial for the museum.

In any event, it probably won't be anything to go nuts over. Though I'm sure people will. Because fandom.

^ What a Debby Downer! It's super-cool even if it's not made widely available and remains exclusive to the museum.

We're not really expecting anything, at least I'm not. I'm under the impression it's probably a few minutes long.

There are precedents for Toho doing something like this.

Monster Planet of Godzilla was an amusement park ride that debuted in 1994 and featured new in-ride footage of Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan using the recent Heisei suits and props.

In 2006, Toho commissioned Koichi Kawakita to shoot new monster footage for Godzilla-themed pachinko parlor game machines, using a lot of suits from the Heisei and Millennium films.

This may be the first time Toho has completely recreated an entire Godzilla suit for something like this. That new Shodaigoji suit looks awesome and I'm glad that they didn't just trot out the Kiryugoji suit and try to pass it off as a Shodaigoji recreation. :wink:

Man, I really wish that that Pachinko footage would become widely available... well, officially available.
