^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.

Haven't seen this topic in a few years Currently, my favorite suit is KiryuGoji.

Forum signatures are always so hard to come up with...

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.
