Happy Wednesday, All! Jon @ UnCanny here!
Two things – a video interview with Marusan owner Eiji Kaminaga (screen capture above by yours truly) has surfaced in which he talks of new toys that will be released in anticipation of the 2014 Legendary Pictures film. He also states that, according to sources, Godzilla’s opponent will indeed be an insect – hence his new Megalon variants! In the interview, Kaminaga states that he clearly does not have the definitive word on exactly what the new Godzilla opponent will be, but is basing his newest releases on all the information he has received. Whether or not this is based on speculation from the SDCC trailer, or if he has other sources is unknown – but we will keep you updated either way!
UPDATE: Marusan has a press release out for the figures, with all the info we need on them. The translation is rough, but here it is:
