Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

After SHAI-HULUD was kind enough to tell us all about a bottle of shochu shaped like Godzilla being sold in Japan (http://observationdeck.io9.com/godzilla-style…), I ended up ordering one.

It was only available for purchasing online, and you could only have it shipped within Japan. But as luck would have it, my mom would be going to Japan to visit her family there, so I could have it shipped to my grandma's house, and she would bring it back with her (also helped me with ordering it). One thing, the articles say it's shochu, but the box and packaging have "sake" written on them.

She got back last week and I picked it up yesterday, so here are the pictures from my unboxing of it. As for the sake itself, it burned going down, and I ended up watering it down a little, and I'll probably mix it with some juice or something in the future. But that's all besides the point, the main point is I got a Godzilla bottle! :) And for anyone concerned, it's ceramic, not a plastic toy.
