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.

Ghidogoji all the way. Besides being my very first Godzilla--it is a savage design. No dispute, my vote is for Ghidogoji.

Interesting fact too. The GhidoGoji and BatoGoji were in the same movie.

In Godzilla vs. Mothra '92 the GhidoGoji was used for the underwater battle against Battra and Godzilla's march out of Mt. Fuji. The BatoGoji wasn't really seen in action until after the Mt. Fuji scene where he battles the JSDF before reaching Mothra and Battra's battle.

The BatoGoji was also used for Godzilla's fight against Rodan in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II.

This one is tough, but I have to give my vote to Ghidogoji. I did not know both suits were used in the same movie! For someone who notices these details, did that confuse you at first Gman? Haha I know if I was watching ALIEN and halfway through the film they used the suits from James Cameron's ALIENS I would've been very confused. Lol 

Was the Batogoji suit more mobile and easy to use and that's why they favored it for certain scenes over the Ghidogoji suit?

GhidoGoji for sure.  For some reason, the lower jaw just ruins the BatoGoji for me...

Chris,
It was hard to tell during the underwater battle with Battra because of Kawakita's bubble fetish. But yeah, I do recall feeling something was a little off from when he walked out of the volcano and the very next scene where he was fighting the JSDF.

The thing is, although the suits are a little different, the overall design is basically the same, so it's hard to catch the differences upon first viewing. It's really repeat viewings that I start noticing these things.

As for why certain suits were used for specific scenes, it might've been a timing issue. The GhidoGoji had been stolen before the movie started production, but was found just in time for the scenes it was in. It was in pretty bad shape so it wasn't used for the climax of the film. And despite the BatoGoji looking a little bulkier it was actually more mobile. My guess is they just wanted to use the suit that was in better condition for when Godzilla taking a heavier beating.

Gorilla,
Yes.
