Two new bits of info have hit at basically the same time, S.H. MonsterArts Shin Godzilla (regular version) will be getting a second release, also it appears Godzilla 2017 (Anime version) has had it's US release cancelled. The Shin figure is the same as previous release, with release date of Jan 2018. It will be available from retailers like AmiAmi, Hobby Search, and others. The Godzilla 2017 figure was supposed to be released from Bluefin a month after it's Japanese release but an apparent license issue has caused it to be cancelled for the US release. There has been no word direct from Bluefin but multiple US retailers have cancelled orders, there has been no word of the specific issue, more on it when we get it. US fans should not lose hope there is always the possibility the issue will be resolved.
