Endangered Species: Recent X-Plus Diamond Reissue Sell-outs

X-Plus figures sold out at Diamond as of April 2018.

One thing X-Plus Godzilla vinyls are known for is selling out, becoming rare and then fetching ridiculous prices in the aftermarket. As you know, these vinyls are all limited edition. Yeah, they sometimes get reissued, but then the cycle starts all over again.

Several X-Plus North American Reissues have sold out at the Diamond warehouse. That means you won’t be able to order these from comic stores any more.

The only stock left on these figures is what is currently in stores right now. It’s time to grab them now while you can. Here’s our rundown of the Diamond Reissues headed for extinction…

X-Plus Gigantic Series Godzilla 2001 Reissue Release Imminent

Gigantic Godzilla 2001 Blue Dorsal Fin Version figure by X-Plus.

The long wait for the North American (Diamond) Reissue of the Gigantic Series GMK Godzilla 2001 Blue Fin Emission Version by X-Plus is finally about to end.

This figure is now in the process of being checked in at Diamond’s mega warehouse in Olive Branch, Mississippi. Once the shipment gets the all clear, the figures will be shipped to several of Diamond’s satellite warehouses. Then, from there, they will be distributed to stores.

It should be a week or two before we get a definite release date. Stay tuned for more information here on Kaiju Addicts.

New X-Plus Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 now up for Preorder

X-Plus Favorite Sculptors Line Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 vinyl figure.

The preorder window for the Favorite Sculptors Line Toho Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 vinyl figure by X-Plus is finally open.

This vinyl is from a previous Monster Maker 28 (MM-28) kit and has been slightly modified by the original sculptor, Shunsuke Niwa for the X-Plus vinyl version. It comes from the same series that brought us the recent Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001 and the Mothra 2001 & Baragon 2001 set.

X-Plus reports that this figure is 28cm tall (about 11 inches). That’s practically the same height as the Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 2001. If you already have the Sakai, you may want to pair it with the rest of your GMK vinyls and skip this new release. But keep in mind this new figure was made to stand with the others in the set.

RIC EXCLUSIVE

X-Plus Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 with light-up fins.

A RIC Exclusive version will feature light-up fins and cost ¥17,820 (currently $164). Reservations started today, February 9, and will end on February 26 at 6pm (Japan time).

You can order the RIC version from the X-Plus site.

Standard versions (without the light gimmick) are available to order from:

• Hobby Search – ¥13,950 ($128.52)

AmiAmi.com – ¥13,980 ($129.59).

Hobby Link Japan – ¥15,500 ($150.61).

Expected release is April 2018.

I originally talked about this new GMK, as well as it’s place with the other GMK figures in this December episode of Kaiju Addicts TV.
