Is it real? Or is it X-Plus?
MyKaiju‘s John Ruffin has wowed us again by creating a Shin Godzilla movie poster using the 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla (2016) vinyl figure to stand in for the “real thing”. Can you even tell the difference? A total tribute to sculptor Yuji Sakai, X-Plus, and John’s graphic design skills!
Here is a fantastic shot of the Toho Large Monster Series Kumonga 1967 photographed by collector Sam Torres. This vinyl is based on Kumonga’s appearance in the 1967 film, The Son of Godzilla / 怪獣島の決戦 ゴジラの息子.
Preorders are being taken now for a North American (Diamond) Reissue.

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?
X-Plus collector, Logan Ten Fingers, just received his 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1991 from us at Flossie’s and he’s sent in this awesome shot of it up against downtown Portland, Oregon.
Do you have a great shot of your X-Plus? Send them in and let us share them on Kaiju Addicts!
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.
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.
I’m nowhere near ready to review this guy but I just had to take a couple of quick shots.
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.
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.
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!
