Albatross Japan teased recently that they would release a Shin Godzilla figure, at C3 Tokyo 2016 they surprise everyone by revealing not only a Shin Godzilla figure but it's two early forms. All three figures are unpainted prototypes but what is interesting is the size difference of the three, each larger than the next. Bandai has released these and S.H. MonsterArts versions were revealed in a magazine spread but theirs were fairly close in size to each other. The Albatross Japan ones are very different in size, possibly more accurate to their size in the film. There isn't much more info on them yet but we will update it once we have it.
CCP revealed more info on their upcoming Godzilla figures as well as two lottery items.

This is the same price as the first combo figure that was shown and most likely will be a Bandai Premium release as well.
