Because there can’t be enough Godzilla love
Godzilla thru the years – The many ‘looks’ of Godzilla
aka: my big-ass Godzilla post!
A little known fact is that by the end of shooting any Godzilla film, the suit is quite damaged and has to be rebuilt. This is partly the reason that in every film, Godzilla looks a little different when using the same design. At other times the suit designer and film team purposely change the look of Godzilla.
Shōwa series (1954–1975)
The original Godzilla (Gojira 1954) was a slow moving giant reptile. The suit weighed over 200 pounds which made it difficult to maneuver. In the second film Godzilla Raids Again (Gigantis the Fire Monster 1956), the suit was streamlined for greater fluidity but was made with the same design.
The first big change came in 1962 with the design for King Kong vs. Godzilla.
