Toho Special Effects Official Visual Book Vol.8 Gigan
"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.
Godzilla in this book is the same as the one that appeared in the film“ THE RETURN OF GODZILLA (1984)” which is the 16th film in the GODZILLA series.
“ Gigan ” is a Space Monster that appeared in the 12th film of the Godzilla film series,“ Godzilla vs, Gigan(1972)”. We hope you enjoy Gigan’s cool design with these snapshots and still pictures taken when they shot the film.
