^Fantastic add-on. I anticipated you'd hit some of the Showa suits I missed--Specifically the DaisensoGoji. Although I knew the head was used for Jirass in Ultraman, I was unaware it forced Toho to create a replica. That explains a great deal, however. The suit looks fine early in the movie and I had merely assumed wear-and-tear had caught up with the head toward the end. A different head on the suit makes a lot of sense. Where did you find that one out?

And I know the SoshingekiGoji received minor alterations, but they're hard to pin. I've always hoped for some official explanation on the adjustments that suit went through.

I forget the original source my fellow editors on Wikizilla found for the existence of the replica head (I'll have to do some digging and see if I can find it again), but one of them did capture a fantastic side-by-side comparison of the heads. It's especially jarring if you're looking for it, because the heads can seemingly change from shot to shot later in the film.

Honestly, I've also considered the possibility that it was given an entirely different head in Son of Godzilla that looks more like the MusukoGoji. I have no proof of this, but I feel the head in this shot looks noticeably different from both the original DaisensoGoji head and the supposed replica:

I too have always been curious about what intentional alterations were made to the SoshingekiGoji. Obviously there is some very visible wear-and-tear by Godzilla vs. Gigan, but the only major change I've ever been able to nail down is the positioning of the eyes in Godzilla vs. Hedorah. In the other films, the eyes face forward, but in Godzilla vs. Hedorah the pupils are further back and seem to face sideways. This seems to have been reversed by Godzilla vs. Gigan.

I can't really nail down any other changes, but I feel like maybe the forehead/brow area was adjusted.

Visit Wikizilla.org, the encyclopedia of Godzilla, Gamera, King Kong, Toho monsters and more that anyone can contribute to.

The King of the Monsters,
That is jarring. Reminds me of the head changes to the MusukoGoji. I've been unable to find any sources confirming whether or not an entirely different suit was built or if the head was merely adjusted during production. Still, it's pretty obvious there's a different head used in the movie depending on the scene:

90s Goji, GMK Goji, 54 Goji, 2000 Goji, Kiryu Saga Goji, 2004 Goji, and 2014 Goji.

Godzilla Generations was a beautiful game! I loved the fact that there's a laser cannon inside of Dr. Serizawa's eyepatch.

Son of Godzilla was the worst. What happened there?

if you want to know more about the free Blu Ray Player for PC and why the computer can’t play Blu-ray movies, and just look at this passage.

Godzilla 89-92 look awesome , 66 and 67 just look so derpy and all the millennium Godzilla just look badass. But the best is Godzilla 62

Burning Godzilla is my favorite, with Shin Godzilla being a close second. Such an incredible re-design.

My favorite design has to be between Tristar's 1998 design (just because he looks like a huge dinosaur [#Zilla]), Toho's 2001 design (because he looks the most natural out of all Millennium era Godzillas [#GMKGodzilla]) Legendary's 2014 design, or Legendary's 2019 design.

Yay! A Fellow Legendary/Monsterverse fan. I also liked the Tri-star godzilla design, just wished the movie was a lot better.

Yeah, same. But at least a good(ish) series came out of that film, right?

Wrong.

The ideal Godzilla look to me is the Gojira X SupesuGojira (Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla) suit. Every time I think of Godzilla, that is the one that comes to mind.

I've always liked the GMK design, the blank eyes are just very menacing, I'm surprised that eyes like that haven't been used in more of his designs especially when he is the villain

Xenotaris My opinions have changed since my comment in Aug. 7, 2018 on the 1998 Godzilla: the Series, and I actually like it. I only said it was bad because I had never seen it before at the time, and now that I have the whole series on DvD, I actually like it (and so does my brother). And it's better than bad or good(ish). For both of us, it's actually super awesome. I'm sorry that I made the lie that it was bad on my other account, but I was just forced to say no because of G. H. (Gman)'s prescence and opinion. I hope I can be forgiven.

G. H. (Gman) Yes, I actually DO have the 1998 Godzilla: the Series on DvD, and I actually DO like it, so whether you like my opinion or not, I say this to you, and I quote myself: "To each his own." Thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a pleasant day.
