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.
When it was originally shown the X-Plus Godzilla 2014 was shown with a "roaring head" but that was changed when it was released. Now it is being released as a Bandai limited edition version. It's 32cm tall and 46cm in length and features clear blue back spikes. It will be approx $170 US and be released in Feb 2016.
