Ghidrah, the Three Headed Monster question

just what is the deal with Ghidorah?  all the airbrushed stills and such feature fire coming from three mouths, not electricity.

here's a really cool lobby, one I've never seen before, and it shows the fire feature in all it's glory. 

I was surprised when I finally saw Ghidorah in action (in Destroy All Monsters) I was surprised to see that they were electrical bolts and not fiery flames.

does anyone know why this is?  there are other instances of rays being different- Baragon fires electrical bolts in his stills, and not in Frankenstein Conquers the World.  is it that the lobbies, posters and stills were prepared before the movie was finished?

the world awaits answers!
