"From the new television anime series ""Godzilla Singular Point," the third form of Godzilla, Godzilla ultima, joins S.H. Figuarts!
Overseen by Singular Point's kaiju designer Eiji Yamamori, and sculpted by the renowned Kenji Ando, it faithfully replicates the distinctive color gradations on the fins, chest, and arms. A giant-sized, 440mm long tail gives it impressive presence!
Options include an open mouth to replicate fire-breathing, and unpainted mini-figures of Jet Jaguar and Jet Jaguar Z.
From the 2004 film GODZILLA: FINAL WARS, the titanic kaiju Gigan rejoins S.H.MonsterArts in a new Great Decisive Battle Version.
Featuring the same sculpting and colors, it includes new effect parts! Combine them to re-create "Customized Gigan". The "Bloody Chainsaws" feature rotating blades!
Godzilla as seen in the 1989 hit "Godzilla vs. Biollante" joins S.H.MonsterArts!
Sculpted, decorated, and produced by the legendary Yuji Sakai. S.H.MonsterArts articulation lets you capture dynamic poses without compromising Godzilla's natural silhouette. U.S. release is September 2021.
When G-FEST had to be cancelled in 2020, we all had high hopes for a rebound the following summer. However, with great regret, the G-FEST Organizing Committee has announced that the convention will not take place in 2021. The continued prevalence of COVID-19 across the country has resulted in anti-COVID restrictions persisting much longer than everyone had hoped.
According to public health forecasts and vaccination timetables, it’s virtually certain that conditions will make it impossible to safely stage G-FEST this coming summer. G-FEST requires months of lead time for planning and preparing, processing registrations, creating displays, organizing the convention schedule and program, making travel arrangements and securing translators for foreign guests, and many, many other considerations. The participants in the convention, from vendors to attendees, all require a great deal of lead time for planning and preparation. With time for proper preparation running out, we didn’t want to keep G-FEST supporters in doubt any longer. Our venue, the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, has agreed with our conclusion.
This is very sad news for everyone that loves the special weekend of camaraderie that G-FEST has provided for so long. It’s especially hard on the youngsters and the special needs kids and their families, for whom G-FEST has become such an anticipated time of the year. However, offering a safe environment according to government regulations is a paramount consideration.
The idea of a “virtual G-FEST” has been discussed on social media. G-FEST’s primary attraction is the opportunity to actually get together with other G-fans and to shop, discuss, play video games, watch movies, see models and art, receive instruction and experience with moviemaking and prop/costume building, meet famous people, etc., etc., etc. IN PERSON. That’s the essence of G-FEST. For that reason, there will be no official online version of G-FEST. A “virtual G-FEST” just wouldn’t be G-FEST. However, no doubt many on-line kaiju-themed events will take place over the summer, and we encourage G-fans to participate and keep the kaiju spirit burning brightly.
We thank everyone for their patience and understanding throughout this difficult process. We are all looking forward to beginning the planning for G-FEST in 2022, about which further details will be coming soon. The disappointments we’ve all experienced have only made us more determined than ever to create a tremendous celebration when we all can be reunited next summer.

Based on the 8 inch version released in 1995, this version of the Gyaos figure is more detailed and uses a brighter coat of paint. Gyaos stands around 6 inches tall and will be released March 2021.
Last released in the early 2000s, Legion was a hit among collectors. The previous figure used a darker grey for the main paint and hints of black/yellow for detail. This new release, however, relies on a solid coat of white and hints of black, red, and brown to provide extra detail. Legion stands around 8 inches tall and will be released March 2021.
Megalon joins the X-Plus 30 cm line of figures! Originally part of the 25 cm line and released as part of a Wonderfest Set with the X-Plus 25 CM Gigan, X-Plus has introduced a Megalon in the 30 CM scale. The Megalon figure will be made of PVC Soft Vinyl, features articulation at the arms and head, and movie accurate colors/details.
The X-Plus 30 CM Megalon will feature both a standard and RIC Version. The RIC Version comes with a mini flying Jet Jaguar and is limited to a set number of pieces. Scheduled to be released January 2021, X-plus is sure to start the new year off with a bang!
S.H. Monsterarts has dropped another one on us: Godzilla 2001 (GMK Godzilla)!
The S.H. Monsterarts Godzilla 2001 was designed to replicate how godzilla appeared during the nighttime battle in the Giant Monsters All Out Attack film. The main body has a dark finish to recreate the glowing effect and Godzilla's dorsal fins are coated in blue to replicate the same color of when he is about to spew his heat ray.
This figure is set for a U.S. release of December 2020. Be sure to secure yours while you can!
The next figure in the S.H. Monsterarts line has been announced: S.H. Monsterarts Biollante!
This figure, hands down, is one of the most detailed figures in the S.H Monsterarts line. Featuring many points of articulation allows collectors to pose the figure in various poses and is very detailed. Biollante also features a working L.E.D. light up feature, allowing collectors the option to change between two different color options: the traditional default orange or yellow.
Last released in 2013, this figure was one of the most popular, by far, with collectors and is still in high demand. U.S. release is set for January 2021. Be sure to get yours while you can!
We here at Beast of The East Collectibles must sadly report that due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the information found in the Restore Illinois Document, G-Fest 27 has been cancelled. G-Fest 27 was to take place July 10-12 at the Crowne Plaza O'Hare in Rosemont, IL. This is very sad and unfortunate news.
However, there is some good news in the information given. G-Fest 28 will be held next year from July 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont IL! The Hyat Regency offers double the convention space that the Crowne Plaza did and offers more hotel room ammenities. With the dramatic increase in convention attendance over the past several years, this logistical change was much needed for the growth of G-Fest.
While it is sad that G-Fest 27 cannot happen this year, the change in convention venue will give us G-Fans something to look forward to in July 2021. G-Fest 28 will take place from July9-11 2021 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, IL. Everyone here at Beast of The East Collectibles looks forward to, again, providing fellow G-Fans Japanese Toys and Pop Culture collectibles at affordable prices. We here at Beast of The East Collectibles look forward to seeing everyone there and hope all fellow G-Fans stay safe and healthy in these trying times.
