GODZILLA DESIGN TOURNAMENT - Round 9 - 1992 vs. 1991

BATOGOJI (1992) vs. GHIDOGOJI (1991)
There are some major differences to the untrained eye for these two suits:
The GhidoGoji (1991) is actually a modified BioGoji (1989) suit. It has enhanced facial features which gives it a taller, triangular head. The chest was updated with much broader pectorals, the biggest of the Heisei designs. The eyes are a dull yellow, making them look more brown. The profile of the suit is very slender compared to the Heisei suits of the latter years.
The BatoGoji (1992) was made from scratch. It is the first Heisei suit to feature very pronounced ribbing on the neck and the first to feature a head animatronic that allowed Godzilla to look up and down. The pectorals were reduced in size and the profile was a little broader. The eye color was a much brighter yellow, which is another feature that would stick with the design through 1994.
