As was stated by Goji, the first one is not a design of Anguirus but an unused bug monster called "Barubaroi". Only the middle and right pictures are Anguirus redesigns. As for the question at hand, yes the GFW design does scream Heisei to me.
It appears as if there was indeed an actual "Godzilla vs BaruBaroi" film considered as an alternative to GvsDestroyer
, and Angilas was considered for it and not GvsDestroyer
. I bought the "Heisei Perfection" book a few weeks ago and there were several pictures of different designs for "Barubaroi." I posted pics of these on the Heisei Perfecton review thread:viewtopic.php?f=11&t=8644&start=30
While he looks like a deformed dragonfly in this aforementioned photos, there were also several designs that made him resembled a cross between Hedorah and Biollante (wierd, huh?). I have been super busy lately (working 80 hours/week, plus I am preparing to move to Tokyo in 1 month), but as soon as things settled down, I'll try to read and translate this book a bit more...
