Godzilla 1962 by NickShev Godzilla 1962 by NickShev
Godzilla 1962 or King Goji as some fans call this suit is one of my favorite incarnations of the big guy. Probably my second favorite in the Showa series after the 1964 design. I always thought the weight, size, reptilian face and size/shape of the fins were really well put together and formed a very classic look. It's a shame this suit was only in one movie.

I have been working on this on and off the past week or so and I have no idea how long it took. More time and more detail than my first "speed paint" but I'm really pleased with how this came out.

Given the slightly grainy edges these older films give people, I almost thought this was from the movie. Good work!

This is excellently rendered! It really captures the feel and look of Godzilla 1962 very well. I too love this particular costume, but for me it's probably more due to this being the basis for the Aurora Godzilla kit which I had as a child and loved dearly. This costume for me, works better from the side view than the front, in which the proportions just get all weird and goofy looking to me. From the side view it's perfect and classic.

I always thought his hands looked like mittens in this suit.
