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.
