Albatross Japan has showed off some new Shin Godzilla and Godzilla Vs Evangelion t-shirts on Facebook. While there aren't too many details both styles feature sort of throwback/classic style art, the Shin Godzilla one is shown in three colors with "luminous paint" and the G Vs E is shown in two colors, both have print front and back. We will post more detail as we get it on these cool shirts.
Bandai Premium posted pics and info on the Godzilla Vs. Evangelion Toho 30cm Series Evangelion First Unit "G" Awaking figure that was revealed at Wonder Festival this past weekend. This figure is made by X-Plus and sold through Bandai but may be available from X-Plus as well. It's a combo of the Godzilla and Evangelion characters, sort of an amalgam, it looks pretty awesome except for the feet (they kind of remind me of clown shoes, sorry). There was a second figure shown at Wonder Festival but no word if or when that one will be released. This figure stands 38cm tall and 36cm in width, preoreders start now with release in Jan 2017. It will retail for 32,400 yen (approx $309 US) and is available from the Bandai site here.
Via Steven's Toy Reviews there was a reveal of Godzilla Vs Evangelion crossover figures, combining both characters.
It is unsure who is making these, possible X-Plus or where they were from (Wonder Festival?), but they are 30cm scale.
There were two shown a standing and a crawling versions. The standing one was painted and actually looks pretty cool.
More info as we get it.
X-Plus made a number of reveals at both SDCC and Wonder Festival, at SDCC the Godzilla '54 "Train Bitter" was shown at the Bluefin booth under the name "Yuji Sakai’s Work Masterpiece Art Collection No. 1" it is not clear if this the same as the Japanese release version. Also shown at the Diamond booth was Godzilla 2014 which looks to get a US release as well as a few previously announce figures. There was was also a Godzilla 2000 that may be a different figure (as John over at Kaiju Addicts states). At Wonder Festival there was a Shin Godzilla and MechaGodzilla II prototypes, both should hopefully hit later this year. There was a few previously announced figures as well as the Wonder Festival Son of Godzilla set. There was a Gamera displayed with Legion (yes non Godzilla) that per John at Kaiju Addicts looks like a new figure. Thanks to John for some of the info here.
Kaiyodo showed off some of there kits at Wonder Festival while most we have posted about already here a reveal was Shin Godzilla, which was an unpaint prototype. There aren't many details yet (it may be released in Oct) but it does look pretty sweet. Also on display was their '54, '62, and '64 kits that we posted previously as well as a Godzilla '84 which is a reissue I believe. We believe these four should be available soon. More detail as they come and a thank you to Yukiko Iwase from Facebook for the pics.
Steven's Toy Reviews posted a pic (via NECA's Twitter) that may have revealed NECA's next Godzilla figure, Shin Godzilla! The pic shows what looks like a prototype in the upper right hand corner, which we blow up below. No word officially from NECA yet but showing a prototype is a good sign that they may make the figure.
We posted about this kit a while back here, now we know that it will be offered at Summer Wonder Festival. This kit is available in three colors black, phosphorescent orange, and phosphorescent green. It will retail for approx $94 US. Wonder Festival takes place on 7/24 at Makuhari Messe.

It's 50cm tall (approx 20 inches), made of Mohair, and will retail for 47,500 yen (approx $446 US), yes this is a very expensive collectible.
