Bandai continues the celebration of Godzilla’s 60th anniversary into early 2015 with the Toho Monster Memorial: Eternal Godzilla (東宝怪獣メモリアル 永遠のゴジラ, Toho Kaijuu Memoriaru Eien no Gojira) deluxe signed and framed limited edition photo print. This is the first Godzilla release in Bandai’s Memorial line, which launched in 2007 with the Ultraman franchise “Ultra Hero Memorial” and followed in 2009 with the “Rider Hero Memorial” series of Kamen Rider characters.
This collectible features a famous publicity still from GODZILLA (ゴジラ, Gojira, 1954), reproduced with state-of-the-art digital printing and matted in black with a “Toho Monster Memorial” nameplate. The silver frame includes a wall-hanging mount. A distinct serial number is included on back.
Each photo is personally autographed by suit actor Haruo Nakajima, who played Godzilla in the Toho films from the original GODZILLA to 1972’s GODZILLA VS GIGAN (地球攻撃命令 ゴジラ対ガイガン, Chikyuu Kogeki Meirei Gojira Tai Gaigan). Mr. Nakajima signed the prints in gold metallic ink to better contrast with the black and white image.
The Toho Monster Memorial: Eternal Godzilla has a limited production run of 300 prints.
