The Toho Large Monster Series Mechagodzilla (1975) Light-up Version (東宝大怪獣シリーズ メカゴジラ(1975) 発光Ver.) by X-Plus is now available for preorder.
This exclusive reissued vinyl has a fantastic, movie-accurate sculpt based on the suit used in the 1975 movie Terror of Mechagodzilla (メカゴジラの逆襲).
X-Plus reports that it will stand 26.5 cm tall (a little over 10 inches). This new version will come LED lights in the eyes which you can activate by connecting the supplied power supply (requires two AA batteries).
If this figure remains the same as the original release, then it will have articulation in the neck, jaw, shoulders, wrists and ankles.
You can recreate the entire Terror of Mechagodzilla line-up on your shelf with the previously released Large Monster Series Godzilla 1975 and Large Monster Series Titanosaurus.
HOW TO ORDER
You can order one now at the Japanese X-Plus site for ¥14,040 (about $125 USD). (Forwarding service required.)
You can also order one direct from the North American X-Plus site for $117.16.
This figure will not be available as a Standard Version from other Japanese stores.
Preorders opened on April 12 and are scheduled to end on May 8. There is a possibility that preorders will end sooner if X-Plus reaches their goal early.
This figure is expected to ship in July 2019.
• This reissue is based on the original 2013 release which came in both Standard and Ric Exclusive versions. The Ric gave you the option to remove the head and replace it with an exposed robot brain as was seen in the movie. You won’t get that feature on this reissue, but you will get the light-up eyes!
