Toy Fair 2015

Check out this post for updates regarding to figure reveals and displays at Toy Fair 2015!

So what's new? Let's see!

Beneath the feet of NECA's 18" Striker Eureka figure (coming out this spring,) there are a set of Chibi Kaiju and Jaegers from Pacific Rim. Note that these are from the film's prologue featuring the Jaegers Romeo Blue (far left) and Horizon Brave (far right), and the Kaiju, Harship, Trespasser, and Karloff. I'm interested in seeing these fully colored and detailed, and ultimately having them in my collection.

On the other hand, NECA also unveiled their NES Godzilla. Now, prior to Toy Fair NECA has somewhat implied that they'll be doing a Godzilla 1964 for the Classic Godzilla series of figures, so naturally one would assume that'd be the basis for their NES variant. Well, we were dead wrong there! NECA displayed a retooled Godzilla 1985 figure with out-of-proportion dorsal plates, and a lackluster pixel-like paint job. I am personally disappointed by this figure big time. I will NOT be getting it.

More from NECA! We now see a full body image of the upcoming Pacific Rim 18" Figure Series Striker Eureka. This figure is looking better and better each time we see it. I do intend to get this figure, but before I do so, I want to see what kind of reviews it gets. Wouldn't want to spend $99+ on it and have it fall apart straight out of the box (those things DO happen quite a bit with NECA figures.)

From Tamashii Nations we see the upcoming S.H. MonsterArts Mecha King Ghidorah - soon to be released in Japan as a web exclusive, and coming out next month in North America via Bluefin Distribution. In the image on the right you can see the newly announced S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla [2014] Spit Fire Ver. in the background - coming out in July in Japan and August in North America.

More photos of the S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla 2014 Spit Fire Ver. and Godzilla 2000 Millennium Special Color Edition (coming out late spring/early summer) have also surfaced.

Also, a bit of a surprise, Gigantic Series Dragonball Z and Mega Man figures from X-Plus were showcased by Bluefin Distribution. It is unclear at the moment whether they will also release Godzilla figures from X-Plus as well. 

In regards to X-Plus Godzilla figures at Toy Fair, Diamond Select will still be releasing figures from the Toho 12-inch Series (aka Toho 30cm Series). 24 figures have been announced to be coming over for North American consumers. As to what those figures are is still unknown at the moment. However, there have been reports of the Toho Large Monsters Series King Ghidorah being shown, so it might be possible that Diamond Select will also be releasing figures from the Large Monsters Series figure line as well, which I am totally open for.

Keep your eyes peeled for further updates!
