In our shop, my Dad and I have a DVD player and TV playing Sci-Fi and Horror movies...all day long. You're just as likely to walk in and see Earth vs. the Flying Saucers as The Mummy, or Starship Troopers and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Darn near name it and we've got it.
Anyways, had Gojira playing today and at the end my Dad says "I wonder if anyones done the Oxygen Destroyer"
Well, a run to the computer got me this...



The tag says: Replica Oxygen Destroyer (Yours for only $11,000) and the real thing from the original GODZILLA...

...yipes...
I don't think I could afford this without giving up a few things...like electricity....and food.

However, building it...Yeah, that was what got me and my father into this all those years ago "Hey thats cool!...but expensive...I'll bet we could build it!"

So, anyone done one yet?

Used my Google Fu and found a lot of high res pictures of it. Believe it or not, the original prop is still at TOHO Pictures Studio. Even better, the pictures I have now have known objects in them so getting really close on size (within about 1/4") isn't going to be a problem.

Oh and...Dibs....called it :lol

We made plaster mixing vessels which looked exactly like those for a project in work. 11k sounds about right if its a 1 off aluminium body... I think we have a few scrap parts..hmmm >_>

I will, of course, freely admit that living so near Corning New York...where Corning GLASS is, I have the advantage here...



And started on the "Ball" as well. Should have the front done in a few days...



Stay Tuned :lol

You know the real problem with them putting the 2 side-by-side like that? YOU CAN SEE JUST HOW INACCURATE THE REPLICA IS!!! :lol

:confused:lol Love Godzilla as well. Very much looking forward to seeing this thread progress. I watch the old eps whenever I can. Someday I will have my Godzilla costume and a scaled city to unleash horror on. Oh yes...it will happen.

Help time!

We roughed out the shapes for the 22 pieces but are still stumped on the guage. With the other projects getting done and production to start on the Battle Droids...there's not enough hours in the day anymore. I really need someone to find the guage for us. This has to be right and correct for two very important reasons:

1. This is the RPF, we don't build "close enough" we build HERO!

2. The $11,000 replica....dosen't have the right guage! :eek

I know, right? Here, look for yourself. This is the replicas guage....


And here's the best I could get of the original screen used OD...

Th person reporting the Oxygen Destroyer replica is incorrect. The Replica retailed for $1100.00. I recently got one of these from a friend in Japan.
