Godzilla Suit History: 1984

Godzilla was revived in 1984, this time returning to his meanacing appearance, instead of the "hero" appearance used at the end of the original series. Everything that was on this suit, was on the original suit, except lacking the little ears behind the eyes. Godzilla was four-toed instead of three, his fangs appeared again, and the dorsal fins were large again too. The tail was made longer, and the eyes showed a lot of white in them. The suit was massive, weighing in at 242 pounds, much more than the Godzilla suits used in the 1970s (88 pounds). Haruo Nakajima took the place as the suitmation actor for Godzilla 1985, the movie this suit appeared in. Some of the scenes were not filmed with this suit, but other props, such as a 49ft. foot, and a seperate tail. This suit was stolen from Toho a little while after Godzilla 1985, and still, nobody has been able to find the suit, or the culprit.
