There was a number of kaiju related figures at Summer Wonder Festival, some new, some previously shown. Two new items were the Aoshima Mechagodzilla/Kiryu model kit, while the kit itself isn't new the inclusion of the AC-3 White Heron or Shirasagi is. It is unclear if it comes with one or two, probably one, and possibly a stand. Also new is a Threezero Baltan a very detailed figure that comes with a second set of hands. It looks like it will be up for pre-order Aug 2019 and retail for $280 US. Also on display were the Megahouse Godzilla 2019, and the Art Spirits Godzilla 2019, Shin Godzilla 2nd Form, and GFW Gigan Version 2. Pics from Dengeki Hobby.

We have an update on the DeAgostini "Make A Weekly Godzilla" Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1954 Figure Kit, the first issue will be released August 27th, info which we didn't have originally. Most of the rest of the info we had is the same, what has been added is a new back drop, nameplate, and vehicles that can be purchase separately for 26,500 yen (payment plan).
