To the uninformed and/or occasional viewer, Godzilla is simply Godzilla. But Godzilla has came a long way since the very beginning. And in the following post i'll be showing you how the beast has changed!

Version 1954

Feature Film: Godzilla King of the Monsters (1954)
Director: Ishirō Honda

This version of Godzilla featured a heavy lower body, small arms and a large, round head. The face had pronounced brows while the eyes were completely round with tiny pupils, a feature unique to this version. The also included several features particular to itself and fangs, four toes, a rough underside for the tail and pointed tail tip, and staggered rows of dorsal plates (these features would reappear with the "second" series of Godzilla films from 1984 to present). The dorsal plates for both the Shodai-Godzilla and the Gyakushu- Godzilla were dynamic in design and unique to the two costumes. During filming, a separate pair of Godzilla legs were used for close-up shots of Godzilla's feet.

Version 1955

Director: Motoyoshi Oda

The version of Godzilla is generally overlooked by most Godzilla fans. This version is very similar to the Shodai-Godzilla, but this Godzilla was slimmer in build and had a smaller head. The lean look resulted from the need to make the suit more flexible to battle Angilas. The Gyakushu-Godzilla also featured movable eyes. A separate set of legs, worn like boots, was used for close-ups of Godzilla's feet. At the request of American International Pictures, Toho built new Godzilla and Angilas costumes for the proposed Americanization of Gigantis the Fire Monster, call "The Volcano Monsters". This suit is called Godzilla Type 1957. Since it never appeared in its own film, it will not be listed as a separate costume. However, several features of this suit, principally a thick stature and three toes (rather than four) influenced the design of the Kingoji seven years later.

Version 1962

This one is one of the most popular Godzilla designs, the Kingoji was radically different from any Godzilla versions before or since. The costume was more reptilian in appearance and the build was very stocky, especially in the lower half. The head was small and streamlined, with a strange combination of human-like eyes placed on the sides of the head in a reptilian manner. Other distinctive features for the Kingoji included large hands with spike-like claws and thumbs nearly as large as the three other fingers. The Kingoji also had several features that would be common to all Godzilla suits until the rebirth of the Godzilla series in 1984. These were a lack of ears, no fangs, three toes, smooth underside for the tail, and one main row of dorsal plates flanked by two small rows. The Kingoji was employed in Godzilla vs the Thing for a few brief scenes; two long shots (from behind)

Version 1964

Feature Film: Godzilla vs the Thing (1964) & Ghidrah the Three Headed Monster (1964)
Director: Ishirō Honda

Widely regarded as the best Godzilla suit of all time, the Mosugoji was as different from the Kingoji as the Kingoji was from its two predecessors. The body of the Mosugoji was sleek and bell-shaped with a pronounced breast bone and knees. The hands featured slender, sharp claws with the fIngers held apart, which looked like they could tear the nicest high-rise OC apartments to ribbons. The dorsal plates were nearly identical to those of the Kingoji. The head was well proportioned to the body and the facial features were chillingly defind, with pronounced brows and splendidly evil eyes. For Ghidrah the Three Headed Monster, the Mosugoji costume was given different facial features. Movable eyes were inserted, the upper lip and teeth were reduced and the tongue elongated, going past the lower row of teeth. This modified costume is also called the SanDaiKaiju (Three Giant Monsters)-Godzilla.

I'll update soon, got a migraine while constructing sorry :)
