At least in the 6” scale. Playmates has a 2” Wartdog already

Dang, haven't kept up with this line at all, but I might have to pick up the Kong (without the stupid robo arm) and Mothra when they come out! I have the Bandai Kong from 2021, but I'm not too keen on him.

I’m talking just six inch figures. I want a wart dog from the 6 inch line to scale with my six inch kongs. Not a 2 inch that doesn’t look like the wart dog

I think the 2" Hellhawk from the GVK toyline scales pretty well with the 6" line, I thought they made the 2" Wartdog for the same reasons until I saw the movie. The Wartdogs are almost as big as Kong, so hopefully wave 2 gives us a bigger, more film-accurate version although I do expect another Godzilla variant.

As I understand, the next wave has 6 figures (Kong, Tiamat, and Mothra already shown off) and there is still the bucket of monsters and the Titan-sized Kong and Godzilla on the way. The person from Target I spoke to said there were a couple more unnamed items in the system as well.

Hopefully Scylla and the other titans are those unnamed ones. Hopefully they release before September as well

Unnamed? What info DID they see for those? A DPCI?

I don’t expect a wave without Godzilla of some kind.

Just some generic placeholder name along with a DPCI. When Tiamat was revealed they said that the remaining figures would include both expected and unexpected figures. Then Mothra showed up, and like UltramanGoji says, I would expect Godzilla. Scylla is the only other character I would expect, which leads me to think we might get Behemoth even though he hasn't shown up since 2019 (that didn't matter for the 2" GvK line from Playmates).

Behemoth was actually going to be in GvK, back when the radio towers and anatomech subplots still existed, so Behemoth wouldn't make sense for a GxK wave.

Given there's a lot of doubt we'll see a Scylla figure I'd wager a bet and say the unexpected figure will be it, the Parrot Frog, Vertacine, or Drown Viper. Maybe even a Wart Dog.

Hm, I actually wonder if they'll do any of the Great Apes, either individual ones or a generic one to encourage army-building.

You would think they would do multiple repaints of a great ape figure so you could build an army. I hope that Happens. Also it would be nice to see a Godzilla blue atomic pulse figure! Like I need a figure of that from the playmates line. I just hope Scylla is made because she played a good role and deserves a figure

They should do a two-pack of two differently painted/sculpted apes with frost spears so you can army build them and have variation. A two pack would be great because you could have one on each side of Skar King.

Could you either send me or direct me to where I can read the full details of the earlier GvK script? Was the full script ever found?

Preorders are popping up for “Titan Size” figures. It looks like 24” Godzilla and Kong coming Q4.
