Well, if anybody is thinking about getting DAM on Blu-ray at all act quickly because it's OOP.

I'm sure this is a total newb question, but why isn't there a box-set of all the Toho Godzilla movies? Just not enough interest?

Rights issues pretty much prevent that from happening. Too many different companies have US distribution.

I've been thinking of replacing my Classic Media DVDs with bootlegs of the Toho Blu-Rays. Is it worth it?

The image quality isn't amazing on the Blu-Rays but it's certainly a step up over the DVDs. If the movies aren't too expensive, go for it. (I personally wouldn't pay over $20 for a bootleg) I think some of the Blu-Rays actually have the Champion Festival versions of the respective movie as a bonus feature but don't quote me on it. I'd keep the DVDs around just for the English versions.

Is there a list somewhere of which DVDs have special features/commentaries and what they are?

I haven't seen one, but I know for sure the Godzilla movies released by Classic Media and Criterion have this kind of stuff. Godzilla VS Biollante also has a lot of special features. You can always check TK's main site and look through the DVD/Blu-Ray section.

I'm actually setting about upgrading some of my Godzilla/kaiju movies to Blu-rays via bootlegs, namely the Classic Media movies including Rodan/WotG, Mothra, Son of Godzilla, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla and King Kong vs. Godzilla (since the official Blu is only the US version). I put my first order in late last night and got the email that it had shipped this morning. I forgot how fast my bootleg guy works; I've not had a bad experience with him since I started buying from him in like 2007.

Should Shin Godzilla blu ray/DVD have its own topic? I didn't see one for it.

There's one in the Shin Godzilla forum, but perhaps that should be moved?

Who knows. I doubt we'll get it before Japan, and as far as I know, there's no projected release date for that.

I believe Funimation has mentioned an early 2017 release, so I'm taking that to mean between April and July.

Nowhere as far as I know. Either people are taking snippets of quotes to mean something else or they're coming up with semi-concrete dates based on pure speculation. Funimation hasn't mentioned any release window yet, only that there will be news about it soon.

I've got a couple bootlegs that are basically dupes of the Japanese Blu-rays with subtitles, and so far King Kong vs. Godzilla and Mothra vs. Godzilla have the Champion edits. Kong's is in HD, but Mothra's is in SD. I'm currently in the process of replacing my remaining DVDs with Blu-rays so I can keep y'all posted on which titles have Champion cuts included.

No US releases contain the Champion Festival versions of KKvsG through DAM. The Japanese releases have all those though.
