Godzilla[edit | edit source]

A 6" Godzilla Pop! figure was revealed in late August of 2015. The common green version was released in November.[2] Funko also produced five variants: Original B&W and Ghost Glow, both sold at New York Comic-Con from October 8-11, 2015; Burning Godzilla, a GTS Distribution exclusive; Atomic Breath, a PX Previews exclusive; and an exclusive Books-a-Million edition with gray skin, white eyes, and purple dorsal plates.

King Kong[edit | edit source]

A King Kong Pop! figure based on his appearance in Kong: Skull Island was revealed on November 30, 2016 and released in January 2017.[3] This was the first product to include the MonsterVerse logo on its packaging.

Godzilla vs. Kong[edit | edit source]

Funko revealed 10" Pop! figures of Godzilla and King Kong on January 19, 2021, the first day of Funko Fest. Preorders for these two figures, along with Walmart-exclusive variants and smaller figures, began on January 27, with Walmart planning to ship them at the end of February. A low-resolution packaging image of Mechagodzilla leaked online the following day, followed by photos of the actual figure in early March before it was eventually released.

In 2015, Funko included Godzilla in the second wave of its Sci-Fi Mystery Minis, with a 1/24 rarity.[4] A three-pack of Godzilla figures followed in 2018. Each pack contained a green-gray Godzilla and an orange Burning Godzilla, with the third figure either Godzilla 1954 or a Burning Godzilla who more closely resembled the character's appearance in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.

Board games[edit | edit source]

Godzilla: Tokyo Clash[edit | edit source]

Funko revealed a board game based on the Godzilla franchise at New York Toy Fair 2020. The game includes pieces that are based on Godzilla, Mothra, Megalon, and King Ghidorah. It was released in June 2020.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On the box art for every Godzilla Pop! figure (exclusive color variations included), Godzilla's dorsal fins are shown to extend into his forehead area. However, this detail is missing from the actual figures, with the plates in actuality stopping near the top of the head.
