But an actual, licensed figure? Fat chance.
Yeah, I wouldn't expect to see a licensed figure of the Winston Godzilla, either.
I think you were right not to rule it out categorically, in that sometimes, unused designs can be produced in a licensed toy / figure line. As you probably know, Marmit made a figure of "Godzilla 1957," based on the Godzilla suit constructed for The Volcano Monsters,
and Trendmasters produced an armored MechaGodzilla in their Godzilla Wars line that resembled MG on the Ohrai artwork poster.
But given the way Toho acts about licenses, I have to wonder whether this kind of thing happens only when whatever guy is supposed to stop it, is asleep or watching sumo wrestling (which frequently amount to the same thing.)
Then there's the question about whether even Toho could license something like that, given that Winston designed it for a project that Toho didn't allow TriStar to produce. As far as I know, the online graphic novel isn't authorized by Toho.
