Luminous Reviews the X-Plus King Ghidorah 1964 Original Colors Ric

Youtube team Luminous reviews the Toho Large Monster Series King Ghidorah (1964) Ric Exclusive vinyl figure by X-Plus. This version sports paint apps depicting a movie accurate representation of King Ghidorah’s very first appearance in Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster (1964). But these colors were never seen on the silver screen. The suit, which features a sort of red, white and blue color palette, was changed to the all gold look we all know.

Please note that after these guys go over the box, they get sidetracked into talking about an awesome King Ghidorah jacket around the 2:25 mark and go on about that for over three minutes. The vinyl review picks up at again around the 6-minute mark.

They also discuss and compare with the previously released King Ghidorah 1968 and also put together the full roster from the movie using other previously released X-Plus vinyls.

Jurassic Reviews looks at the 25cm Gigan 1972 Nighttime Version vinyl figure by X-Plus

Jurassic Reviews takes a look at the recently released Toho Large Monster Series Gigan (1972) Nighttime Version vinyl figure by X-Plus.

This figure is somewhat of a reissue of X-Plus’ original 25cm release of this sculpt. What makes this one different though are its slightly darker paint apps to represent this kaiju from the night scenes in the Showa film Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972).

Phil the Kaiju King Reviews the X-Plus King Ghidorah 1964

Phil The Kaiju Kings reviews the Toho Large Monster Series King Ghidorah (1964) Standard Version vinyl figure by X-Plus.

This vinyl is significant because it’s based on Ghidorah’s very first appearance in the 1964 Showa film Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster. It was released by X-Plus last month.

Still new to the review game, Phil has just upped his game with some snazzy new graphics.

Jurassic Reviews looks at the X-Plus King Ghidorah 1964 Ric Exclusive

Jurassic Reviews takes a look at the recently released Toho Large Monster Series King Ghidorah (1964) Ric Exclusive vinyl figure by X-Plus.

This figure is based on King Ghidorah’s first and original appearance in the Showa film Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster (1964). If you are wondering what’s up with those weird colors: that’s how KG was originally intended to look until the higher ups decided to switch the suit to a classic asian dragon gold color.

If you are after a screen accurate set of paint apps, the Standard Version of this figure is what you need.

PHOTO: Collector Sam Torres Recreates ‘Son of Godzilla’

Sam Torres Dio of Son of Godzilla using X-Plus.

Is it real? Or is it X-Plus?

No, you’re not looking at a screenshot from 1967’s Son of Godzilla. Sam Torres, diorama maker, toy photographer and X-Plus collector, has done a great job of making the next best thing. He’s brought his Toho Large Monster Series Godzilla 1967 and his Large Monster Series Kamacuras (both by X-Plus) together in a great shot which looks like it could be a frame from the movie.
