NECA revealed their Shin Godzilla figure and it's pretty awesome. The figure was revealed at at the Alamo Drafthouse in New York at a screening of the film.

No word on release date or price (which should be around other NECA Godzilla figures), we will update that info once we get it.
The Gigantic Series Godzilla 2001 Emission Version is getting a reissue thanks to Diamond for the North American market. As revealed by John from Kaiju Addicts the figure will be released in Jan 2017 at a price of $425. It seemed that this would come from Bluefin but that may have changed for some reason.
As part of Diamond's US X-Plus re-issues comes the Godzilla 12in Series Godzilla 1999 2K Millennium Version 2 figure, with one catch this isn't technically a re-issue as it has not been released in Japan by X-Plus, at least not yet, as John over at Kaiju Addicts reports. He also reports this is actually based on a kit. It was first shown at SDCC and is now on display at NYCC. No height is stated by Diamond but it appears to be shorter then a number of other figures in the line although this could be because of the pose. Price is in line with other Diamond releases $160 and is scheduled for a July 2017 release.
