A while back it was announced that Diamond would be reissuing some of the X-Plus Godzilla figures as they had with a number of the other kaiju from the series. Now they have solicited the first two Godzilla 1984 and 1992. Both will be $169.99 but no release date was announced. Below is the solicit info from Diamond for each.
From X Plus USA. The Return of Godzilla (a.k.a. Godzilla 1985 in the U.S.) Was the sixteenth film in Toho's Godzilla series, and was the beginning of a rebooted series of films, ignoring all of the films from 1955's Godzilla Raids Again through 1975's Terror of Mechagodzilla. The film, which was a direct sequel to the original 1954 film, Godzilla, was produced to coincide with Godzilla's 30th anniversary, and returned the series to the darker themes and mood of some of the early films, returning Godzilla to his old destructive ways as well. This 12" scale figure captures the Kaiju King's new look from the film.
From X Plus USA. In 1992, one of Toho's most popular kaiju, Mothra, returned for the new era in Godzilla vs. Mothra! No longer an allies, the kaiju once again clashed as they had done some many years earlier in 1964's Godzilla vs. The Thing. Directed by Takao Okawara with special effects by Koichi Kawakita, the 19th Godzilla film remains the highest grossing film of the entire Godzilla series, and featured a soundtrack score by legendary composer Akira Ifukube (who won a Japanese Academy Award for his score). The film was the second highest grossing film in Japan in 1993, second only to Jurassic Park. This 12" scale figure continues the development of Godzilla's size and mass.

S.H. MonsterArts is releasing the Kou Kyou Kyoku Godzilla 1989 figure, while this figure is similar to other S.H. MonsterArts figures from the standpoint of articulation and detail this one is unique the it features both light and sound.
