The S.H. MonsterArts King Ghidorah 2019 has been released, to mixed reviews:

SHMonsterArts - The Articulation Series Twitter

The bigger buzz recently was over a bootleg version of the Showa (1960s-era) Ghidorah.

The "word on the street" is that the bootleg version of the original Ghidorah is an inferior model of what S.H. Monsterarts is planning on releasing later this year.

That would be pretty damn cool. Now if we could just get a 1956 Rodan...

(Personally, I'd love to see figure of Grand King Ghidorah from the 1990s Mothra movies. That's my favorite version, aside from the 2019 version.)

I had the SHMA Ghidorah 2019 on preorder, but cancelled it after the
reviews started coming out. Hopefully they can improve it whenever
they do their inevitable recolored rerelease.

Looking forward to an official Showa Ghidora.

The week after Eternals is released. If that film does a Guardians of the Galaxy, this could be an expensive mistake.

Well...it's not like G:KotM torched up the box offices this Summer.

But...an 8 month delay? Wow.

No.  Not a good sign.  Interesting that they pushed it to November instead of Jan/Feb 2021.   Tons of competition during that November date that wouldn't be there in February.  We've seen genre films flourish in February, yet November is when they've chosen to drop it.  

Odd. 

I will say that if you had no faith in your film, November would be one of the last months you'd drop it.  So much scrutiny during awards season.  It either has to be a hit out of the gate or it ends up as a disastrous afterthought.  There's really no in-between. Not that they think this is awards calibre by any means, but that they think counter-programming all that Oscar bait with a big, splashy genre film which may feel like "summer" may earn it some more $$ at the BO.  I dunno.  Hate to second guess studio schedulers, but this is a head scratcher.

It's gonna be the end of the Monsterverse franchise. Like Bob said, G: KOTM didn't perform very well at all in the U.S. This is what happens when there's five years between the first and second Godzilla film and the only Monsterverse film between the two is KONG: SKULL ISLAND. That's just not enough to build interest. 

So after 2020 Toho will, again, be the only studio creating Godzilla films. I'm more interested to see what Godzilla's rightful, Japanese, owners will do with the big guy, several years after the artistic (and financial) success of SHIN GODZILLA and the fiasco of of the anime Godzilla films (man they were boring.)

I just hope that when Toho does more films, that they're not continuations of SHIN GODZILLA. That should be a standalone.

It's doubtful that Toho would do a SHIN GODZILLA sequel without Hideaki Anno at the helm, and he's busy doing SHIN ULTRAMAN next.

Some Toho exec said -- several months ago -- that SHIN GODZILLA would be a standalone. I personally can't imagine how a sequel would work. (Well, I can, but not how a good sequel would work.)

Said exec also said something noncommittal about Toho trying to do a kaiju version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They sort of already did that -- it was the Showa Era of Toho kaiju eiga.

I say go back to the end of GODZILLA: TOKYO S.O.S. and pick up from there, 17 years later. It would be pretty easy.
