I’m sure we’ll find out something from them soon but is there a reason why you’re happy about that?


Not really "happy", just find it funny. Bandai of America lost it's big flagship line to Hasbro with Power Rangers so I'm curious if they're even gonna stay afloat at all.

Bandai ain’t exactly in a good way right now.



Still 6 months out from the movie launch. Every company is doing announcements on their own time. I did reconnect with a contact at the company at SDCC so when they're ready to go, they'll let me know.

I really hope Sideshow, Prime 1 or Chronicle Collectibles are doing some large scale statues of the big four kaijus, especially King Ghidora. This movie is literally asking for statues.

Looks like JAKKS are stepping up their game for round 2, kind of glad that I passed on their original, this looks much nicer.

Those spines are glorious. Very anxious to see what they do with Rodan, Ghidorah, and Mothra.

I'd assume to accommodate for a Ghidorah about the same size as the original Godzilla release. I mean, could you imagine a Ghidorah in scale to that original release? Thing would be HUGE

The mere thought of a Jakks Ghidorah is both awesome and absolutely horrifying at the same time. Can't even imagine what shelf will be able to hold such a behemoth :lol:

Actually screw the shelf- i'm gonna get this thing and use it as a giant, three-headed gargoyle for my window :lol:

Absolutely beautiful!

Gonna focus on something a little odd, I love the box art. I can't tell you how much I absolutely despised that terrible photoshop job of Godzilla that was on pretty much all of the merchandise for Godzilla (2014)

Seems like JAKKS may be taking over for Bandai Creations.

Lmao this. Seriously, the art they used for the 2014 merchandise was the living definition of godawful. The quality jump here is absolutely gigantic, you can really tell they are putting effort into marketing this thing.
