When deciding what the next Godzilla Tiki mug would be, we really felt that King Ghidorah would be the perfect fit. It was definitely a challenge to incorporate its design into a compact, easy to fit-in-your-hand tiki mug. That said, as it was designed we realized that all of Ghidora’s scales and shapes translated really well into tiki. We chose the Showa Era design because of its iconography, pairing nicely next to last year's Godzilla Showa Era Tiki release.
We enlisted the skills of the super-talented Tufan Sezer to sculpt and bring this mug to life - he really killed it. We worked to find the correct proportions, shapes and textures. In the end, Tufan really nailed the design, contributing a lot to the overall look and feel of the mug.
Lastly, we turned to the amazing folks at Tiki Farm to make this mug a reality. We knew we had a pretty complex design on our hands and no one was better suited to handle than Tiki Farm. They accepted the challenge; the result speaks for itself.
