With the Godzilla leather wallet you will feel like king of the monsters and lord of fashion

King of the Monsters isn’t the kind of title that’s earned easily or overnight, it’s one that Godzilla has shown he deserves over the past 70 years of on-screen battles. And if Godzilla is strong enough to be the top member of Kaiju nobility, surely he’s powerful enough to keep your money and credit cards safe, right?

That seems to be the logic behind the creation of the brand new Godzilla wallet… or maybe it just looks awesome.

Created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Japanese theatrical release of the original 1954 Godzilla film, the wallet was designed by Akira Ibaraki. Ibaraki’s name may not be known to fashionistas, but he is a master modeler of astonishingly detailed figures from the Toho Kaiju pantheon.

Of course, the wallet isn’t made from real Godzilla leather, as it’s simply too powerful to skin. Instead, it’s cowhide, but treated to achieve the look of Godzilla’s rugged skin. Ishida even created two different textures, with one side of the wallet based on the skin of Godzilla’s chest, as seen in the photo above, and the other side based on his legs, as shown below.

And since absolutely no one buying this isn’t a huge Godzilla fan, even the box the wallet comes in plays into the kaiju aesthetic, with a reproduction of the 1954 movie poster on the front.

The Godzilla wallet costs 32,780 yen and is offered through Japanese online retailer Premico here.
