Unfortunately Playmates booth was closed to press and pics but they did have an awesome six plus foot tall Godzilla statue per the rep it weighs in at over 900 pounds and came in two parts.

Interesting Gameplay Features
Bandai's big Godzilla was a show stopper to rivel Playmate's but Bandai had figures on display. The issue was there wasn't anything new, they did have the S.H. MonsterArts Burning Godzilla 2019 on display as well as a regular Godzilla 2019 and S.H. Figuarts Ultraman figures as well as Chodo Hero's Ultraman figures releasing June.
Monogram had a few reveals, and the one bright spot in the Godzilla Vs. Kong void. Their Series 2 Classic Godzilla bag clips were on display, as well as a placeholder for, you guess it, Godzilla Vs. Kong, there was also a placeholder for Ultraman bag clips. No info on those clips was given as for as characters and release. Also on display was their Cute Godzilla Bank, Classic Godzilla Bank and a Ultraman Bank as well, no release date for that one.
NECA may have had one of the bigger reveals two new Godzilla figures, Godzilla 1989, and Godzilla 2003. Both like all the current releases will have movie poster packaging. See our post with the official pics and info from NECA. Also on display was the soon to be released Mothra poster version. On the Kidrobot side was new Phunny plushes, King Ghidorah and King Kong, of note Kong is not the Monsterverse version and will not come with the banana costume that the early solicits stated. Also on display was the 8 inch Art vinyls, with four versions of Godzilla classic version with translucent fins, one with glow in the dark fins, two gold versions one matte gold, one shiny gold. Also there was the Mechagodzilla battle worn version. Also there was the Bhunny Godzilla figure, a new line that's a cross between the previous figures and a Funko POP, Godzilla is a Loot Crate exclusive there was a Mechagodzilla on the package back but they were not sure if it will also be a Loot Crate exclusive. Each comes with a lucky "paw".
Chronicle Collectibles revealed there new 1/12 scale Jurassic Park/World figures, they included Owen, Ian Malcolm, Dr. Grant, a Raptor, and Blue. These look to be articulated figures with the human characters featuring cloth clothing. No release date on these.
Diamond had a few items all previously announced Godzilla Gallery Rodan 1993, and Godzilla 1993 Dioramas, and the three new Vinimates. Both dioramas look as good as the released Godzilla 1991, also of note they stated that they are finalizing Ghidorah that goes with Godzilla 1991 since it is actual based on the poster from that film and supposed to "wrap" around him. Also probably no Mechagodzilla to go with the 1993s.
Check out our Facebook page for other items on display, thanks.
X-Plus (and Star Ace) made a big splash at NYCC with a number of reveals and an awesome display. Some big reveals (pun intended) were Gigantic Mechagodzilla 1974, DefoReal Rodan (painted), a Skull Crawler to go with Kong Version 2, and the Yuji Sakai Godzilla Final War RMC Poster Version resin statue. Gigantic Mechagodzilla has not been seen in over a year, it was an unpainted prototype but appears to be at least closer to release. The DefoReal Rodans (two, possibly Ric and standard) were not only revealed for the first time but was painted as well (pic from Eric Stolp). We are also getting a Skull Crawler to go with Kong it wraps around he like in the film. Then there was the beautiful Yuji Sakai Godzilla Final Wars statue, which is based on a kit, is incredibly detailed including a base. And we have a paint Allosaurus from One Million Years B.C. and looks like it comes with a caveman with spear (pic from Eric Stolp). Also on display was a number of other figures previously shown. Pics here are via our friends at Power-punch.net.
