Now up for pre-order: the Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure by X-Plus.
Just look at this badass from master Godzilla sculptor Yuji Sakai. Here the King of Monsters stands in a hyper-movie-accurate sculpt that (it’s been a while since I said this…) looks like it walked right out of the movie!
From what I understand, this was originally sculpted in 2014 to commemorate Godzilla’s 60th anniversary. And now Mr. Sakai’s creation will now be available in vinyl form from X-Plus.
NO TAIL BASE!
The figure’s tail rests on the ground before curving up again so it looks like this piece has no annoying tail base.
This will be the 8th figure in the Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection and the 4th Godzilla 1954 to come out in X-Plus’ modern, post 2009 catalog.
Traditionally, X-Plus has released all G’54’s with monochrome paint apps. At first glance this new figure seems to follow suit. But the images on the RIC site seems to indicate a tinge of blue with subtle, cool highlights over the body. This may be because of a slight color cast on the photos though since the inside of the mouth has no reds.
X-Plus reports that this figure will about 28cm / 11 inches tall.
This figure will come with a main body and a tail which you must attach.
Preorders started on November 10, 2017 and will close on Friday, December 15, 2017 at 6pm JST.
There is a Ric version which will come with light-up fins.
