Kaiju Addicts TV: Star Ace Kong Skull Island Vinyl Figure

In this new episode of Kaiju Addicts TV I take a look at the Star Ace 12-inch Kong Skull Island Vinyl Figure. The first segment is a rundown of the figure with information on where and how to buy. Next, I give an abridged version of my written Kong review in video format.

Preorder New 30cm Series Godzilla 1964 and Ebirah from Flossie’s

X-Plus Godzilla 1964 and Ebirah up for Preorder at Flossie's.

The new Godzilla 1964 and Ebirah can be ordered from the Japanese X-Plus site. But its often difficult to create an account on a Japanese language website. If you don’t mind going through two middlemen, you can preorder these right now at Flossie’s.

The 30cm Series Favorite Sculptors Line Godzilla 1964 RIC Exclusive is available to preorder at Flossie’s for $219.99. A non-refundable deposit of $60 is required to order. This figure comes with light-up fins.

The 30cm Series Ebirah is available to preorder at Flossie’s for $243.99. This figure comes with removable tail and legs so that it can be attached to a splashy, water base which holds the figure angled upward.

Both figures will be drop shipped from a shop in Japan and will be sent to you directly from there. When the order is ready to ship, we will bill you for the rest of the figure and also for the shipping cost from Japan to you.

If you have a question, please leave it in the comment section below!

Frozen X-Plus Diamond Reissues Now Available Again

They’re back! Some of the licensing issues with the X-Plus North American “Diamond” Reissues have been resolved and the group of eight 30cm Series figures which were frozen are once again available to order. Figures include:

  • 12in Series Godzilla 1984
  • 12in Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1989
  • 12in Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1991
  • 12in Series Godzilla 1992
  • 12in Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1992
  • 12in Series Godzilla 1999 2K Millennium Version
  • 12in Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 2001
  • 12in Series Godzilla 2014 Blue Dorsal Fin Version (Roaring Head with MUTO Head)

These can now be ordered from your local comic shop and online stores (although online stores will need time to restock.)

No word on what’s happening with the cancelled 8in Series (Large Monster Series) figures. This move doesn’t seem to have anything to do with them. Let’s hope that also gets resolved.

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!

WTF? More Diamond Reissue Cancellations

Three more X-Plus figures were announced as cancelled today.

  • 8in Series (Large Monster Series) Gorosaurus
  • 8in Series (Large Monster Series) Megalon
  • 8in Series (Large Monster Series) Kumonga

No reason was given. These follow other recent cancellations: King Caesar, Jet Jaguar, Mothra/Manda set and Baragon/Varan set.

Is the Diamond Deal dead?

Probably not. Don’t forget we’ve seen recent releases for the Large Monster Series Rodan 1964, Mothra Imago 1964, Landing Stage Hedorah and Anguirus 1968.

But as of now… there are no new X-Plus figures scheduled to be released. (Unless you count the Star Ace / X-Plus Kong vinyls due out in late November.)
