Stylized movie like composite of the Toho Large Monster Series Gigan (1972) Nighttime Lightup Version vinyl figure by X-Plus.

X-Plus has just announced the Toho Large Monster Series Gigan (1972) Night Color Light-up Version / 東宝大怪獣シリーズ ガイガン(1972) ナイトカラー発光Ver. / vinyl figure.

This Ric Exclusive figure was originally released in early 2012 and was reissued as part of a Wonder Festival set in 2016. And, now it’s back for another pass.

While the same sculpt as previous releases is used again here, this one sports a Nighttime Paint scheme. It also comes with LED lights inside the visor.

Like the previous releases, this figure will have articulation available at the shoulders making for a rare opportunity (for an X-Plus figure) to tweak the pose.

Gigan stands approximately 23cm (about 9 inches) tall and can be purchased only at the X-Plus site and The Godzilla Store.I don’t believe a Standard Version will be available in stores.

This is a Japan Exclusive. It will not be available from X-Plus’ U.S. store.

The cost for the Ric is ¥14,040 (about $127 USD). Preorders are open now and will close on March 26. It is expected to ship in May 2019.
