How Tall was Godzilla?
Before I post this weeks Godzilla review I wanted to have a little fun. Godzilla was much smaller during the Showa series of films (54-75) and taller in the Hesei series (84-95). The increased height was due to the fact that in the later series the buildings in Tokyo were built so much taller that they would have dwarfed the first incarnation of the monster, so he had to be made larger. If you look in the left hand corner at the bottom of the picture you can see him in comparison with a person.
