Tamashii had announced that for their Tamashii Nations 10th Anniversary (Tokyo) they would be making 10 announcements, one of those was a Godzilla one. Well now we know what that announcement is the S.H. MonsterArts Shin Godzilla Kou Kyou Kyouku figure. Like the previous figure in that line this figure features light, sound, and music, it may be the light up part that will stand out. It will apparently feature a color changing effect, changing from red to purple. No other details have been revealed yet and we will update once we get more info, thanks to Dengeki Hobby for this info.
Also announced is that there will be a Tamashii Nations standalone store in Tokyo in Akihabara in May 2019 that will sell various items including limited items (rendering below).
Tamashii has officially revealed their S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla 2002 figure, the figure was seen in magazine scans previously.

It is scheduled for an April 2018 release, this is a general release that should be available for pre-order starting tomorrow from AmiAmi, Hobby Search, and other retailers.
Tamashii has been hinting of a special announcement pertaining to their 10th Anniversary, now they have give another hint at just what might be coming at the "Akihabara UDX" venue, Shin Godzilla. Tamashii has released an image including ten logos for various characters number one in the image is the Shin Godzilla logo. While they have not given any specifics on the figures the text accompanying it seems to suggest it will be something new.
"TAMASHII NATIONS exhibits new items that can attract you from now on. We will release the deployment after 2018 of human figures, robot figures, monster figures, super alloys and props series, including new characters and new technologies, brand x character's first collaboration etc.
For the "10 major new announcements" scheduled to be revealed at the event's full appearance, the information that will be a hint will be released specially!

The announcement looks to happen on Nov 30th. TAMASHII NATION 2017 happens at Akihabara UDX 2F AKIBA_SQUARE/Bersalle Akihabara 1F/B1F Dec 1 to Dec 3. More info as we get it.
Tamashii looks to be releasing yet another repaint set, the S.H. MonsterArts Spacegodzilla & Little Godzilla. The images come from Twitter (@_Erasu) but look to be legit. There are no details at this point (price, release date) but from the pics Spacegodzilla features slightly different coloring, darker, and a effect for his shoulder crystals, Little Godzilla has a darker color scheme as well.
Update: Official info and pics have been released this set will be able to be pre-ordered starting Sept 15 from the Bandai Premium Shop with release in Feb 2018, it will retail for 14,904 yen (approx $135 US), no word on a US release yet. Both figures are the same size as the previous releases 16.5cm for Spacegodzilla and 9.5cm for Little Godzilla, the new figures have a "dirty" look/coloring from the battle scene, and Spacegodzilla has gravity effect parts.
Two new bits of info have hit at basically the same time, S.H. MonsterArts Shin Godzilla (regular version) will be getting a second release, also it appears Godzilla 2017 (Anime version) has had it's US release cancelled. The Shin figure is the same as previous release, with release date of Jan 2018. It will be available from retailers like AmiAmi, Hobby Search, and others. The Godzilla 2017 figure was supposed to be released from Bluefin a month after it's Japanese release but an apparent license issue has caused it to be cancelled for the US release. There has been no word direct from Bluefin but multiple US retailers have cancelled orders, there has been no word of the specific issue, more on it when we get it. US fans should not lose hope there is always the possibility the issue will be resolved.
Tamashii has officially posted hi-res pics and info on their S.H. MonsterArts Mechagodzilla '74, the info for the most part is the same as previously posted, the figure will be 9,720 yen (approx $88 US), is 15.5 cm tall, and will be released Jan 2018. The new info is it will feature a beam effect and replacement hands and articulation that allows for multiple poses. This is a Tamashii Web Shop exclusive but may still end up available from Bluefin.
Update: Big Bad Toy Store has this figure listed at $94.99 it is unclear from their site if it is a Bluefin release or an import.
