The next entry of Legendary Pictures' "Monster-Verse" is set to arrive at the end of this month, and it seems as if Godzilla and Kong won't be alone in their war as Mechagodzilla has seemingly been confirmed via a toy reveal. The mechanical doppelganger to the lizard king has a long history in the universe of kaiju, and while his origin has changed, he remains one of the most recognizable giant monsters of the bunch. Needless to say, his inclusion will be a major one.
And where did this new sneak peek come from? Well, it looks like the film industry was bested once again by merchandise. An official toy preview was released by Playmates Toys, and the advert showed how its Mechagodzilla figure comes together.
So you have been duly warned! There are major spoilers below for Godzilla vs Kong, so please proceed with caution.

As you can see below, the toy was revealed by Smyths Toys with a UK price tag. A short blurb says the manmade monster was created to end the reign of kaijus and was made in secret. As for the monster itself, Mechagodzilla looks totally terrifying with its sleek metal design, and its red dorsal fins make the beast more foreboding than ever before.
Godzilla vs Kong is slated to debut in the United States on March 31. The film will be available both in theaters and on HBO Max for a limited time. You can check out its official synopsis below:
