The first example that leaps to my mind is the dam destruction sequence in Godzlla vs. Megalon. In a movie where the spfx sequences bounce mostly between awkwardly placed stock footage and new footage which cannot hide its low budget and rushed production, Megalon's attack on the dam stands out as one of the more effective bits of monster destruction in its era.
Your examples are the best that come to my mind. Although the fight between Godzilla, Jet Jaguar, Megalon and Gigan is cheesy fun those other scenes are pretty cool.
