Large Monster Series Pestar vinyl figure by X-Plus.

This is the latest Ultra kaiju to join my collection: the Large Monster Series Pestar by X-Plus. I’ve been wanting one for years now. Don’t know why I didn’t pull the trigger until now.

The details on this are insane! And it’s a dead ringer for the monster in the original Ultraman series (1966-1967). Every time I look at it I’m flung back to Tilton Street where I lived as a kid; where I watched Ultraman reruns on TV every day.

I freaking love these things. Thanks to X-Plus, I finally have the monsters I’ve always wanted. But, hey, we need more Ultraman ’66 monsters, X-Plus! Okay?

MyKaiju.com controller, John Ruffin, has long been my favorite digital artist working with X-Plus. He’s only just received his Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure by X-Plus, and he’s already made another masterpiece with it.

I’ve been saying for years now that X-Plus figures are so good they look like they walked right out of the screen. Here, John puts it back into “the screen” again and the result looks totally authentic.

Check out John’s photo gallery here on Kaiju Addicts and be prepared to be wowed.

And, there is a LOT more to see at John’s site: MyKaiju.com. Get some coffee and don’t expect to get out of that chair for while when you go. There’s enough there to keep you mesmerized for quite a while.

Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 Arrives

A close-up of the Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962.

Our Flossie’s shipment of Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 vinyls just arrived today so I’m a little late to the GG62 party. Not sure why but I wasn’t expecting to be totally blown away as I have. Listen, this thing is waaaaay more impressive in person. Photos and even video don’t do it justice.

The newly released Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 vinyl figure by X-Plus.

I’m nowhere near ready to review this guy but I just had to take a couple of quick shots.

The Dark Side of Godzilla 2000

While working on my next review, I noticed that the darkened profile of the Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection Godzilla 1999 was menacing and a tribute to Sakai’s genius even without clearly seeing all of the details in between. More proof that this design is cool as f**k!

This angle also reminded me of the Korean movie poster for Godzilla 2000: Millennium.

If you’re looking at this with a computer, please click on the photo for a larger view. Then browse through the Kaiju Addicts Extras category for more X-Plus imagery.

Terror of Mechagodzilla Composite by Jeremy Soles Kicks Ass

Jeremy Soles composite of Terror of Mechagodzilla using X-Plus figures.

Dude, your mouth is agape. (That’s okay. Mine is, too.)

This OUTSTANDING Photoshop composite by collector Jeremy Soles recreates the terror of Mechagodzilla using the Toho Large Monster Mechagodzilla 1975 Ric Boy and Godzilla 1975 (also Ric), both by X-Plus. There’s also a crossover cameo from 1974’s Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla using the Toho Large Monster Series King Caesar.

This piece is yet another testament to the outstanding realism found in X-Plus sculpts. If you’re not collecting yet, I’m sure this shot just gave you a jab in the right direction.

You can follow Jeremy Soles on his Instagram account and his Facebook Page.

John Ruffin knocked me OUT OF MY CHAIR when I saw this one! This Godzilla vs. Destroyah movie poster composite was made using photos of the Gigantic Series Godzilla 1995 and the Large Monster Series Destoroyah vinyl figures from X-Plus.

This work is a testament to the outstanding sculpts from X-Plus, and the outstanding artistry of John Ruffin. Everything about this piece is PERFECT!

John Ruffin’s Large Monster Series Godzilla 1985 by X-Plus

X-Plus 25cm Godzilla 1984 diorama shot by John Ruffin.

John Ruffin is, by far, one of my favorite X-Plus diorama photographers. His latest creation features Godzilla 1985 (going by the Dr. Pepper billboard) among N-Scale buildings. He also hid some plugs in the photo. Can you find shout outs to Kaiju Addicts, Rich Eso and Skreeonk?

I just got an email from new Godzilla fan and current Okayama, Japan resident, Ted Ekering. He says that he’s discovered X-Plus by reading Kaiju Addicts. That’s kray kray!

He had chosen the Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection Godzilla 1991 as his first figure. (Don’t anyone tell him that it’s all downhill from here!)

Lucky for us, Ted already has a collection of TomyTec and KATO N-Scale buildings which he’s used previously for Gundam model kit dioramas.
