X-Plus of the Day 11/8/19 – X-Plus Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001

The X-Plus Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001 vinyl figure on my desk.

Hogging my printer on my desk all day today is the Large Monster Series Favorite Sculptors Line King Ghidorah (2001) by X-Plus.

It’s the spitting image of GMK KG. I still find it hard to believe that we finally have a complete roster for GMK.

This figure is shorter than other Ghidorahs in the 25cm Series, as it should be. Yet it’s slightly big for this line. It scales with the other GMK figures so that’s all that matters.

Unlike the other Ghidorahs, this figure comes with the wings already attached. Also unlike the others, you need to put the tail on this one. But it comes with a magnet and pops right on. …and pops right off if you’re not careful. I’d rather have the tail all one piece with the body.

I’m not going to ask you how you like this sculpt because if you don’t, you a crackhead.

What do you think about the tail connection though? Nice? Naughty?


When you have well over 100 X-Plus figures, each one tends to blur out of focus in lieu of the collection as a whole. ‘X-Plus of the Day’ is when I select one of them and keep them on my desk for the day in an attempt to enjoy and appreciate it away from the busy shelves.

X-Plus of the Day 11/7/19 – X-Plus Soft Series Crawling Hedorah

X-Plus Soft Series Hedorah All-Fours Version vinyl figure.

Sliming up my desk all day today is the Soft Series Hedorah (All Fours Version) ヘドラ 上陸期 四つん這いVer. vinyl figure by X-Plus.

This figure comes from the newer Soft Series. It’s actually soft and squeezable yet remains sturdy and has a bit of heft to it.

It’s scaled with the Daikaiju Series (aka Large Monster Series, aka 25cm Series). And it’s particularly interesting because it’s one of the few Toho kaiju which X-Plus has done more than once in this scale. (They also made a standing posed version of this Landing Stage smoggie.

It was released just a little over a year ago. And I realized that I’ve hardly looked at it during that time. Which is absurd because this thing is freaking cool!

It’s also great to have another crawler in the 25cm Series. Smoggie here joins Anguirus 55, Varan, Anguirus 68, Ebirah, Manda, Baragon 65, Kumonga and others.

Today I have 2 questions.

Which do you prefer? The Standing Landing Stage Hedorah ready to suck smog out of the smoke stacks or this new crawling version?

Also, do you have any Soft Series figures? What do you think of them? Ya dig the squooshiness or prefer regular vinyl?

X-Plus of the Day 11/6/19 – X-Plus Gigantic Series GMK

The X-Plus Gigantic Series Godzilla 2001 vinyl figure on my desk.

Hanging out on my desk all day today is the Gigantic Series Godzilla (2001) by X-Plus.

This here is the very first figure in the Gigantic Series. It surprised the crap out of everyone the day it was announced.

This is also a Japanese original standard version. (I didn’t care for the mini GMK heart extra.)

When it comes to badass figures, this one leads the pack. Or does it? What do you think?

X-Plus of the Day 11/5/19 – 30cm Series Mothra Larva

X-Plus 30cm Series Mothra Larva 1961 vinyl figure.

Crawling under my monitor all day today is the Toho 30cm Series Mothra Larva (1961) by X-Plus.

This is a very early figure for me and so I’m extra attached to this hyper movie-accurate of the original larva from Mothra’s very first appearance in 1961.

Fun Fact #1: X-Plus put out a “squooshy” version of this figure years ago before the Soft Series was even a thing.

Fun Fact #2: Despite being a member of the 30cm Series, this figure is actually closer in scale to the Large Monster Series Showa figures and so probably belongs on the 25cm Shelf. Mothra was HUGE in her original 1961 movie and was longer than Godzilla was tall.

I barely look at it on the shelves because I barely see it. Such a small figure with tons of headroom. Many feel this makes for a very uneventful X-Plus purchase.
So what do you think? Is this a must-have or is it too small to even consider?

X-Plus of the Day 11/4/19 – 30cm Series Mogera 1994

The X-Plus 30cm Series Mogera 1994 vinyl figure on my desk.

Hanging out on the desk today is the Toho 30cm Series Mogera (1994) by X-Plus.

The past couple of days I’ve posted favorites, but I’m back to spending the day with a figure I rarely ever look at.

Originally, I was excited to get a new 30cm Series non-Godzilla Heisei figure. But my lack of attachment to this character soon set back in.

I was still glad this figure was there on my shelves. I just didn’t look at it that much.

Shame, too, because this thing has a great sculpt and fantastic details on it. The blue treads are especially cool.

I was never that into The Mysterians (1957) so this 1994 version is my Mogera.

So, how about you, Heisei collectors. Is this figure so-so or is it a winner?

X-Plus of the Day 11/3/19 – 30cm Series Godzilla 1954

X-Plus 30cm Series Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure on my desk.

Hanging out on my desk today is the 30cm Series Godzilla 1954 by X-Plus.

This is special today for 2 reasons. 65 years ago today on November 3, 1954, Godzilla first stomped onto Japanese movie theater screens. So, Happy Anniversary, Gojisama!

Next, this is the 3rd ever X-Plus I got. And my first 30cm Series Godzilla.

Since this figure came out, X-Plus has released four more 54’s. And so this guy here often gets forgotten.

It was the tallest 30cm Godzilla for a long while. I think it was finally beaten by last years Godzilla 1967.

It’s been released a few times already, mostly with monochrome paint apps (as seen here) and also in color.

Seems a shame this figure seems mostly ignored now. What do you think of it? How do you rank it?
