For Godzilla's 50th Anniversary film in 2004, Godzilla: Final Wars, director Ryuhei Kitamura, special effects director Eiichi Asada, and Shinichi Wakasa's company Monsters, Inc. collaborated on the title character's new design. It was Wakasa's idea to use features from multiple older designs. The arms and legs are slimmer than usual, and Godzilla's thighs are also one size smaller. FinalGoji also has much more noticeable ears than many previous suits. The small dorsal plates resemble those of the Showa series: a single prominent row with smaller surrounding plates.
To make this suit leaner and more flexible, Shinichi Wakasa's company Monsters, Inc., used less urethane foam and latex rubber. Instead, they added a special material called "foam latex," a chemical compound made with latex and some additional agents that bake to become a soft rubbery material. This reduced the weight of the suit by almost 44 pounds, allowing the actor inside much more movement and flexibility.
