Greetings, Godzilla collectors!
Well, it’s that magical time of year again… ToyFair is happening in New York, and boy… did we get some kaiju goodies! From the Godzilla franchise to Pacific Rim, from good ol’ vinyls to movie prop replicas, we definitely got some awesome stuff revealed this weekend! NECA, Tamashii, Bandai Creation, and Diamond Select Toys showed off some sweet merchandise, and this will be the thread to share what’s been found, and to discuss the awesomeness that IS ToyFair!
This is a list of what we’ve seen so far, organized by company. I’ll update it if anything else is discovered:
Pacific Rim Merchandise:
Movie Replica Chibi Figures (SDCC Exclusives)
12 Inch Godzilla 2014 Vinyl
Hatchin’ Heroes (Godzilla Egg Series Exported to U.S.)
Daimond Select Toys Merchandise
Godzilla 1974 Figure Bank
Rodan 1993 Figure Bank
Stuff We Knew About That Was Shown Anyway
NECA Godzilla 1954
NECA Jaeger Series 6/Deluxe Otachi
18 Inch Striker Eureka
6 Inch Rubber Baby Otachi
Diamond Select Toys Godzilla 2000 Pizza Cutter
Toynami Shogun Warriors Godzilla

S.H.MonsterArts Mecha-King Ghidorah
Assorted Bandai Creation Godzilla Figures
Aside from showing off figures, a few companies provided (and are continuing to provide) info on figures not shown at ToyFair, but hey are using the show as a platform to announce new products! Check back for updates.
In addition to showing off the new Chibi figures (based on toys actually seen on screen in the prologue of Pacific Rim!), NECA confirmed that there are more 7 inch scale, regular figures to come! Check out their tweet:
"At least 5 more Jaeger & 3 more Kaiju in development, not shown here @ToyFairNY much more Pacific Rim to come"
So... THAT'S exciting!!!! :D We already know Winged Otachi is coming (a prototype has been sighted before), but its unknown if that is one of the three mentioned in the tweet! All we do know is, 8 more characters are coming our way! Let the wait, and the speculation, begin!!!!
Acording to Chris at Toho Kingdom (read through this page for his tease!), thanks to fan feedback, Bandai has ANOTHER 12 inch figure in the works that was NOT revealed at ToyFair! The figure is one requested by fans thank to Bandai's email outreach a few months ago that asked for fans to send in requests, from which they would select new monsters to make for the line! Its only a matter of time before the new figure(s) are relvealed!
That's alot of toys....
Therizinosaurus for JW2!
^Yes... yes it is.
Sci-Fi King25 #TeamRodan
Definately getting Otachi.
18 inch Striker Eureka? :'D
“Banana oil.”- George Takei, Gigantis: The Fire Monster
Right?!?! I WANTS IT!!!!
KARLOFF! MY BABY!
Also the uknown Bandai Creation is getting me VERY excited! (You all should know who I'm hoping for...).
"Daddy's home- cake every night,"
I'm also REALLY REALLY hoping for a decent Momma Muto figure. All we have is that dinky and kind of inaccurate toy and chibi. :/
"Daddy's home- cake every night,"
^Seconded. It didn't occur to me until after the ToyFair reveals yesterday that there REALLY should have been a Bandai Creation's MUTO (or two) revealed... or, ya know, made at all. -_- Its sad that we are nearly a year removed from the release of the film, and the biggest Female MUTO figure we have is two inches tall...
But remember, Bandai has several other figures in development for release this and next year based on fan feedback, and I don't know about you, but one of my votes was for the MUTOs...
And seconded on Karloff, as well! He's one of my favorite Kaiju EVER, and the chibi is adorable! Lets hope one of those three kaiju NECA has in develpment is a Deluxe Karloff!
Personally, I am IN LOVE with that Diamond Select Toys Rodan Bank. I think its purdy! And that Godzilla 1974... how cool is it that we will have a Showa Godzilla... that big... and relatively cheap... available here in America?! I'm excited!!!! Those were awesome surprises!
MONSTERARTS GODZILLA 2014 SPITFIRE VERSION AND MONSTERARTS MECHA-KING GHIDORAH! I WANT!
Sucks that sh monster arts will never get off the Heisei train and give us some decent showa figures. I mean C'mon, how many more damn heisei figures do people need?
no more neca besides stupid repain :'( but im SO EXICTED !!!!!!! for neca godzilla 1954 looks so coll and like the movie
Please neca a 2002 godzilla that's my favorite design.
I don't know what to put here
I need em' all!!!! I am a completist, and as far as I'm concerned they aren't done until EVERY kaiju from the Heisei era is released!!!! >BD
OH! And there are two awesome things that I am gonna be adding to the thread... Toynami showed off some cool stuff that, while weve seen it before, is still pretty cool! Look in the "Stuff We Knew About" section! :D
You forgot the 1 Showa era Godzilla, the 1 Legendary Godzilla (soon to be two), the 2 Millennium Godzilla (both the same but with different colors), and the 2 forms of Millennium MechaGodzilla (Kiryu). It's not all Heisei. They'll make some Showa firgures in time (and by fan demand).
Heisei is the brand Toho likes to puch; the characters are popular and the designs are still very relevent in Japan. The Heisei series sells well as merchanise in Japan, and Tamashii wants some of the action. Its a simple as that. Showa isn't popular among the fan base that Tamashii is trying to court with the S.H.MonsterArts line, so they aren't making them yet. Its a ridiculous reason, but its all they need to put Showa on the back burner. They have never said they WON'T do them, but rather that the era isnt a priority.
Showa IS coming, just not yet. :)
Oh, and while I'm here, check out this picture! Its a scene from Pacific Rim (from the prologue) showing the Kaiju and Jeager toys that were made during the early days of the Kaiju War. These are the toys being reproduced as replicas that were revealed at ToyFair:
Also, for those of you hoping that the kaiju Hardship and Karloff will be made as Deluxe Kaiju figures one day (and really, who isn't?), check out this second, VERY encouraging scene from the film:
See the Romeo Blue on the left, and the Hardship on the left of the shelf with the chibi's on it?!?!
Bring. It. On.
I will get those large figures: Bandai 2014 Godzilla, Diamond select Godzilla 1974 and Rodan!!!
But I would like to see DS to produce a full body King Ghidorah Bank and a Mechagodzilla with a better pose
