Check out the X-Plus interview with Yuji Sakai below.
"Sakai Yuji modeling collection" series is based on Godzilla kit of Godzilla Dream series of Mr. Yuji Sakai who is named as a male of Godzilla modeling, Mr. has been involved from product planning such as specifications from selection of works, and love for Godzilla and Commitment is being commercialized with the aim of reproducing high-quality prototype based on strict supervision of Mr. Stronger than anyone.
The collection series of Yuji Sakai released by our company in 2014 "Godzilla (1989) fourth species alert system" Osaka landing "" was very popular and finished sales.
"Godzilla (1989) fourth species alert system" Osaka landing "mouth closure Ver." Is a version that made the head of Biogogi a mouth closed type. I will ask Mr. Sakai this time about the commitment and hot thoughts of the work this time. Q. I think that figures of Godzilla who opened my mouth are more common, but I felt very fresh for Godzilla whose mouth was closed. Biokoji which closed her mouth is also really cool. Mr. Yuji Sakai (Mr. Sakai): Godzilla who barks or intimidates and opens his mouth is cool as well as it is easy to express power when shaping, but I also like Godzilla who closes his mouth and likes it daringly I also make a closing prefecture . Especially Biogogi is really handsome, so closing your mouth makes my head get smaller and it is so cool that it gets numb with the beautiful silhouette I call the biogge line, from the head to the tail .
Q. Mouth closure Biogoji was released from the Sakai Yuji modeling workshop at the Wonder Festival in the summer of 2010, is not it?
Mr. Sakai: Yes. We released a few as a premium set that included a head type kit with mouth closure to the usual type of mouth opening biogoji kit on that day only. I like both the mouth opening and the mouth closing, so I thought that I would like you to buy it with the head of the person I like. I sometimes replace it without gluing the head to the body and enjoying it. This time the product is the prototype of the mouth closing head at this time.
Q. Please tell me about Mr. Sakai's commitment to this commercialization.
Mr. Sakai: Invisible mouth The teeth coming from the mouth, especially the fangs, are important points in expressing the power of Godzilla . Since it is said that technology is improving from the time of the mouth opening type in 2014, we are sticking to reproduction of prototype. I also stick to the reproduction of my painting every time.
Mr. Sakai: Each Godzilla has suitable angle and lighting, so I am sorry that I ordered annoying things and the time was long. I was also asking for image images by synthesis, but there was a pleasant proposal indeed, I got a really cool photo, the tension rose and the inside of the head was already Godzilla music was ringing (laugh) It was purchased I would also like people to enjoy and have a lot of cool pictures taken .
Q. Please comment to those who intend to purchase at the end, those who are lost.
Mr. Sakai: This time the boy Rick limited edition comes with Super X 2. Although there were several ideas concerning attachment, people who purchased my modeling collection of plex were listening to that they were playing with the opponent monsters or at the time of the diorama, so this time we set them as set sale I wish I could have fun. More than anything, I will be happy if you can feel the beauty of the mouth closure Biokogi good quality at hand. It is the most delicious if you can arrange two pieces of mouth opening and closing mouth (laugh)
Thank you for responding to a busy schedule.
It was an interview that Mr. Sakai's hot feeling came through.
Please also look forward to the future development of "Sakai Yuji Sculpture Collection".
