X-Plus has opened the preorder window for the Toho Daikaiju Series (aka Large Monster Series, 25cm Series) Godzilla 1999 (宝大怪獣シリーズ ゴジラ(1999)) vinyl figure. It’s based on Godzilla’s appearance in the 1999 film, Godzilla 2000: Millennium (ゴジラ2000 ミレニアム).
Both Standard and Ric Exclusive versions are now available to order.
The figure stands approximately 23cm (9.05 inches) high and 47cm (18.5 inches) long. The tail will come as a separate piece which you must attach.
You can preorder the Standard Version (Godzilla figure only) from the usual Japanese stores.
RIC EXCLUSIVE VERSION
The Ric version comes with a double bonus: an alternate lower jaw for an open mouth and an in-scale damaged ship which fits into the mouth replicating a scene from the movie.
The Ric will run you ¥15,660 (currently about $134 USD). You can preorder this at X-Plus’ Online Shonen Ric Store or at The Godzilla Store. Both sites are in Japanese and will only ship to Japanese addresses, so you will need a forwarding service like Tenso.com.
Preorders for the Ric end on March 26.
Both versions are expected to ship in May 2019
