Toho Special Effects Official Visual Book Vol.20 King Ghidorah
"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.
Ghidorah in this issue appeared in “Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster”(1964). Having three heads, it is one of the most popular villains of the GODZILLA series with its unique design of the mixture of Western and Eastern taste, outstanding performance by the suits actors and the technics of special effects. We hope you enjoy the design of Ghidorah with these snapshots and still pictures taken during the filming.
