Oh, this is an interesting development. I wonder if we'll see 6 inch imports as well.

Now worried they will import the Kotm line. I really want them to do what they did for 2014 and give a better sculpt

NECA's shown off everything, Bandai we're unsure of since all their stuff got revealed like the end of the day. Could be more.

Wait are they going to bring over the 24 inch Godzilla Earth?!

Seriously, I would snag that in a heartbeat if they brought it here.

Well that's better than nothing... Are those figures in the bottom picture with Kiryu really 3.5" though? They aren't scaled with the other vinyl figures? And that giant Treezilla is an easy skip. God I hate that design so much! :evil: And still no standard Heisei Godzilla?! Incredible..

Lol I want it too! I will seriously buy him, and put him on my coffee table with yellow rope around him to showcase Anime King Ghidorah :lol:

So Bandai America did bring over wave 1 in 2014, so I'm assuming they will bring wave 2, which includes Godzilla Earth, over this year.

Oh, the irony; how long have we wanted to see BC import the Japanese figures, only for us to now hope the exact opposite? :lol:

That said, it IS cool that we're seeing some imports; it's not technically new, but it's certainly an opportunity for Western fans to obtain some rarer items. Those plushies are cute, too.

What do you mean by rarer items? Most of the recent stuff from Japan is fairly easy to get and reasonably priced in the US. Highly doubt BC will bring over older molds especially once that only got released once or twice in Japan.

Gashapons are made for the Japanese( and some select Far East )market, not the American market. I have the Wave 3 pictured, and I got them from a Japanese source. I had to buy a whole box of 10...

The BC figures have been selling well at my local Walmart. There are quite a few G2Ks and G54s hanging around, but everything else gets bought right up. Also, I'm tossing around the idea of picking up a Rainbow Mothra and a G2K, myself. I always considered these figures to be junk, but on closer inspection/now that I can afford them easily, some of them really aren't that bad...

The Rainbow Mothra has a very nice paint job plus Im a fan of the roaring pose of their G2K.

Very much worth the buy IMO.

These figures sell like crazy. Makes sense since kids love Godzilla and they are cheap at $12 each. Making it easy for a kid to save up, or a quick thing a parent can grab as it’s cheaper than most of the other toys in Walmart.

We talk to Bandai America at Toy Fair 2019 about their upcoming Godzilla toys.

Thanks for the interview + info, Heisenberg.

Really interesting that they're straight-up importing the candy toys. Also interested to see what else will be offered.
