It's hard to state it is fake. Since I have never seen a Godzilla figure that resembles this, or even has any of the distinct pattterns on this toy.
We may have to face the fact that this is just a really crappy toy. The boxes and such could easily have been photoshopped, and if somebody wished to with time and effort they could make one, either to look crappy or truly trying to fool people. Either way only time can really tell us if this is fake or real, hopefully it isn't the latter.
At the first light of this Unrelenting Dawn, all will see the world for it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s entirety, not just it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s shadows.

If it is for a childrens book it looks fine but for a proper toy, the figure and especially the packaging seems too underwhelming... id imagine a legit toy to have the sort of open packaging with a "try me" button or something, to see Godzilla make lights and noises.

If this is real, the toy looks like one of those simple cheap toys. HOWEVER, we all know that the Godzilla in the Movie looks incredible, Also, the spikes on the book, and the toy are FAR from what they looked like in the trailer. BUT I do like how his arms are lizard/human-like. Rather than T-Rex-like. You all feel let down because you expected an exact detail on detail life-like movie quality expensive holy mother model. Just remember, this is a simple toy that comes with the book. Calm down! Im sure you will not complain about his design when you see him moving around destroying everything in his path when you watch the movie.

The manufacturer's (Running Press) logo is clearly visible on the side/spine of the box.
If you look up pictures of some of their other box-sets, such as the "Light-up Starship Enterprise Mega Mini Kit," you'll find that those have the same package type Running Press used with this one.
The logo also has the red kanji behind the "GODZILLA" text. Anyone who thinks it's a Z - please find a better/bigger copy of the pic.

I love the attitude that fans have, they somehow can tell if something is magically fake based on how much they dislike something. Same thing happened when they started revealing new Pokemon for X and Y and how people, up until they got their copy of the game, didn't believe it.
That being said. I'd say I'm 60% sure this is real. It just seems like a really silly thing to fake; but I could be wrong.

@ZILLAMASTER55 - Your analysis leaves something to be desired my friend. The only light source that I can see is the one that is obviously in front of the three different objects. In fact, the ONLY thing I can see that would even begin to suggest photoshop is that the book casts no shadow at all. Aside from that, the box and the toy are obviously real and in the shot.
I've got a good eye for things like this, and photoshop is the first thing disgruntled fans often shout. It's like the boy who cried wolf. You don't like it, you call it fake without checking sources for it first. You want to find a source, look for it yourself. Or are you too lazy and scared to do so because you fear you might find it authentic?
If you guys want a source for this, just search for it yourselves. Lazy bums.
