“TOHO SFX MOVIES AUTHENTIC VISUAL BOOK” is a series focused exclusively on one character (mainly one monster) from one work, which is edited into one volume every time. Large pictures of the character make it possible for readers to enjoy the texture, subtlety of the design and design details of the character. In the meantime, as there have been a lot of books written on the description of each work, such description in this book is limited to a minimum amount.
The“ EX” editions highlight the work of a particular actor or staff member, or as in this case a Super Weapon associated with the featured production. In this volume we take a closer look at the modern update of the multi-functional warship Gotengo as seen in the film GODZILLA FINAL WARS (2004). Serving as part of t he Earth Defense Forces fleet, t his awesome battleship can travel through the ocean like a submarine, take to the sky in flight, or tunnel through the Earth. In this book you can see and compare the original Gotengo’s design to the updated version. While the drill looks much the same, the warship’s overall form is quite different. Please enjoy these important examples of Toho mechanics.
