Godzilla Gets His Own Alcohol
The new Godzilla movie has made $477.6 million in box office revenues worldwide, and one Japanese company is celebrating by releasing a special new collectible just for adults: a porcelain Godzilla statue filled with alcohol.
According to Rocket News 24, the scaly green porcelain monster is the product of Japan’s Konishi Brewing Company, which originally came out with its limited edition Godzilla shochu in honor of the 55th anniversary of Godzilla in 2011. Now they’ve decided to re-release the product in honor of the new movie, and because there’s never a wrong time to fill a toy monster with alcohol.
Boozy Godzilla holds 720 ml of the company’s Choujugura shochu, which is a grain alcohol made from barley and water. The collectible porcelain bottle was created by sculptor Shigeaki Ito in conjunction with Godzilla special effects director Koichi Kawakita. The 2014 re-release will include 3,000 bottles that are expected to sell for 10,800 yen, or about $106 each.
