UP FOR PREORDER: 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1954

X-Plus 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure.

Now up for pre-order: the Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure by X-Plus.

Just look at this badass from master Godzilla sculptor Yuji Sakai. Here the King of Monsters stands in a hyper-movie-accurate sculpt that (it’s been a while since I said this…) looks like it walked right out of the movie!

From what I understand, this was originally sculpted in 2014 to commemorate Godzilla’s 60th anniversary. And now Mr. Sakai’s creation will now be available in vinyl form from X-Plus.

X-Plus Godzilla 1954 and Mechagodzilla 1975 releasing next week; Train Biter already sold out at Diamond!

X-Plus 30cm Series Godzilla 1954 Train Biter and Mechagodzilla 1975 vinyl figures.

The North American reissues of the Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 1954 Train Biter and the 30cm Series Mechagodzilla 1975 vinyl figures by X-Plus will arrive in U.S. stores on Wednesday, October 4.

If you’ve already placed your order with us at Flossie’s, expect to have your order charged on Monday or Tuesday (Oct. 2-3, 2017). We will begin shipping them out on Thursday.

DIAMOND ALREADY SOLD OUT OF TRAIN BITERS!
Diamond Distributors is already sold out of the Godzilla 1954 figure. If you haven’t placed your order already, you will NOT be able to do so at Comic Stores as usual. The only stock left will be in the hands of stores and retailers who already ordered them ahead of time.

I’ve been saying for some time now: Diamond will not be stocking up high with X-Plus extras now and in the future. The chance of missing out is much higher now, so make sure your pre-order early from a store you trust!

We have some preorder slots still available for both figures at Flossie’s.

• Order the X-Plus 12in Series Godzilla 1954 Train Biter at Flossie’s for $149.

• Order the X-Plus 12in Series Mechagodzilla 1975 at Flossie’s for $149.
