Kaiju Addicts Full Review: Star Ace 12-Inch Kong Skull Island Vinyl Figure by X-Plus.

This is the long-awaited Kong Skull Island Vinyl Figure by Star Ace, a subsidiary of X-Plus. The sculpt was produced by X-Plus. It stands at 12 inches tall and is a mostly movie-accurate representation of the giant ape from Kong: Skull Island (2017). It was released in Japan in October 2018 and it will reach stores in the United States in mid November 2018.

Full Review: Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Shin Godzilla 2016 Ric Exclusive by X-Plus

Kaiju Addicts Full Review: Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Shin Godzilla 2016 vinyl figure.

The Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 2016 is a fantastic take on Shin Godzilla and ranks at the highest end of the movie accuracy scale. If realism is your thing, then this vinyl is a grand prize winner. It’s upraised tail makes it a little difficult to display but it doesn’t care, and rightly so. The pose is right out of the movie and isn’t that what really matters?

It has super intricate textures, sculpting and ultra fine details rarely found on mere toys. This feels more like an official maquette from the Toho SPFX department than a collectible. I’m almost afraid TOHO will be banging on my door trying to take it back!

This vinyl is a tribute to Mr. Sakai’s superior sculpting skills and X-Plus’ masterful execution. If you are able to add this piece to your collection, you will not be disappointed.
