Playmates Toys Doing Godzilla Figures With Godzilla Vs Kong To Follow

by Jay Cochran
December 26, 2019
GojiBill sent word that new Godzilla figures have started to show up on shelves from Playmates Toys. Figures that looked very similar to the ones previously put out by Bandai America only with less paint decos. Even the packaging is very similar to the Bandai America ones only now you have a Playmates Toys logo on them instead of Bandai America. You can see an image for these new Playmates Toys figures below via GodzillaWolverinefan.

While details are limited at this time for why Playmates Toys has started releasing very similar product to the Bandai America stuff, we do know back in August Playmates Toys quietly announced they would be producing product in 2020 for the new Kong vs Godzilla movie which right now is slated with a November 20, 2020 release date.

We've reached out to the folks at Playmates Toys to see if we can get anymore details on this but with the Holidays upon us we may not hear back until the new year. Once we do hear back we will be sure to update this story but for now don't be surprised if you come across similar Godzilla product on shelves with the Playmates Toys logo on it.

From the early shots and designs, the figures look far better than what Jakks Pacific put out for KotM. I know those figures were meant for kids, but they were horrible in play quality as well. My kids are into Godzilla too and bought a few of the Jakks KotM figures. In addition to having limited paint apps, the plastic wassoft and breaks easy. Poor quality for items intended for play. For my kids, I hope thatthePlaymates GvK line followswhat theyve put out so far in terms of durability. As for me, I hope that NECA gets some of the GvK rights to put out affordable collectible options.

Battle damaged Godzilla and Kong? Now that's interesting, it kinda catches my curiosity to see how these figures go

A concept they borrowed from Kenner's Jurassic Park line for sure, some other toys remind me of the old toys made by Trendmasters especially that armored Godzilla.

What I like about that Battle Damage assortment is there are more than the three monsters, I wonder if there's a chance to see any of the Titans from previous films getting new figures, special emphasis on certain three headed monster.

I still dont get why the so called Mechagodzilla looks more like a skeleton than a robot?

Odd design option indeed.

Sorry, I know it's old news, just today I found out about the figures leaked, I like what I see, is there any more information about this line?.

I have been hype for this movie since 2014, and everybody wants to jump on that train now? Pff

I'm not sure who is going to really buy these when they are so similar to the Bandai stuff which at least at my local walmart last time I check was still warming the pegs. I assume these are being release now to hold the shelf space for when it gets closer to the Kong Vs Godzilla movie release and hopefully Playmates will have something to differentiate it from the Bandai stuff.

A few others have shared your theory that Playmates is using the Bandai figures and the other poor quality figures in attempt to fulfill their Godzilla toy lineobligation to Walmart. Godzilla vs Kong was originally scheduled for a March release and was pushed back to November. This may have screwed up Playmates previousplans and now theyre scrambling to provide Godzilla figures while not revealing the GvK figures. That would explain why theyre reusing the Bandai figures,why the new onesare poorer in quality, and why Kongis one of the better ones in the bunch.

A video review (https://youtu.be/QV42q-IZhvQ)confirmed that a feware the sameBandai figures with a black Playmates stamp over the Bandai imprint on the foot. Pics below. This gives me hope that the laterfigures have a much better chance at being better overall.

Well, it looks like a very interesting list, several kaijus that we haven't seen before in the Bandai America's vinyl line (when still had the rights), now let's wait to see how they look like.

The YouTube channelGeek Chest recently released a video potentially identifying the Playmates Godzilla series lineup. They stated theirsource has been reliable in the past but nothing was confirmed at the time of the video. Pics and link below.

Wow, they won't even try to make more new figures besides the Kong, all I see are figures that Bandai had already done in the past but with even less quality.
