Tamashii/Bandai has officially updated their site with pics and info for both Godzilla 2019 and King Ghidorah from Godzilla: King Of The Monsters. Godzilla is 16cm tall and comes with a ray effect and effect joint (possibly for pose shooting it straight up). it will retail for 7,200 yen (approx $65 US). Ghidorah stands 25cm tall and has a 60cm wingspan, it comes with a stage set (struts to hold wings), and it will retail for 18,360 yen (approx $166 US). Godzilla is scheduled for release May 2019, Ghidorah June 2019, both can be pre-ordered now, there is no word yet on Rodan or Mothra but they should be available to pre-order soon.
Bandai revealed their S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla: King Of The Monsters figures at Tokyo Comic Con. This was a bit of a surprise to us cause we got no other full reveals at the stage presentation with Michael Dougherty, just another teaser trailer and production stills. The four figures give us a good look at the monsters for the first time. Godzilla is updated over the 2014 version, slightly different back fins and feet among other minor changes. Ghidorah looks very similar to past incarnations, a little thinner, more lean with many minor differences. Rodan, which we got the best view of in the first trailer, looks as expected, although it was hard to truly make out most details because of his darker coloring. Mothra is the one they changed the most, while it's wings have a familiar look and coloring, the body is much more insect like with long legs that remind us of Muto legs. Some details are hard to make out because these are articulated figures, with joints affecting the look. No release dates were announced yet but these should be released next year (there is a date of 1/19/2019 on the Tamashii King Of The Monsters page, pre-order date?). More info as we get it.
Note to our fans, this section will include all Monsterverse collectibles (Legendary Godzilla/Kong etc.) going forward. Some older posts pertaining to Monsterverse/Kong collectibles are under the Other Kaiju Toys section, we will move them to this section time permitting. Thank you.
