X-Plus of the Day 11/3/19 – 30cm Series Godzilla 1954

Hanging out on my desk today is the 30cm Series Godzilla 1954 by X-Plus. This is special today for 2 reasons. 65 years ago today on November 3, 1954, Godzilla first stomped onto Japanese movie theater screens. So, Happy Anniversary, Gojisama! Next, this is the 3rd ever X-Plus I got. And my first 30cm Series Godzilla. Since this figure came out, X-Plus has released four more 54's. And so this guy here often gets forgotten. It was the tallest 30cm Godzilla for a long while. I think it was finally beaten by last years Godzilla 1967. It's been released a few times already, mostly with monochrome paint apps (as seen here) and also in color. Seems a shame this figure seems mostly ignored now. What do you think of it? How do you rank it? When you have well over 100 X-Plus figures, each one tends to blur out of focus in lieu of the collection as a whole. 'X-Plus of the Day' is when I select one of them and keep them on my desk for the day in an attempt to enjoy and appreciate it away from the busy shelves.

X-Plus Godzilla 1954 and Mechagodzilla 1975 releasing next week; Train Biter already sold out at Diamond!

The North American reissues of the Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 1954 Train Biter and the 30cm Series Mechagodzilla 1975 vinyl figures by X-Plus will arrive in U.S. stores on Wednesday, October 4. If you've already placed your order with us at Flossie's, expect to have your order charged on Monday or Tuesday (Oct. 2-3, 2017). We will begin shipping them out on Thursday. DIAMOND ALREADY SOLD OUT OF TRAIN BITERS! Diamond Distributors is already sold out of the Godzilla 1954 figure. If you haven't placed your order already, you will NOT be able to do so at Comic Stores as usual. The only stock left will be in the hands of stores and retailers who already ordered them ahead of time. I've been saying for some time now: Diamond will not be stocking up high with X-Plus extras now and in the future. The chance of missing out is much higher now, so make sure your pre-order early from a store you trust! We have some preorder slots still available for both figures at Flossie's. • Order the X-Plus 12in Series Godzilla 1954 Train Biter at Flossie's for $149. • Order the X-Plus 12in Series Mechagodzilla 1975 at Flossie's for $149.

Diamond Reveals New, Upcoming X-Plus Re-issues coming to North America

Today at the Toy Fair trade show in New York, Diamond Distributors revealed the next set of X-Plus vinyl figures slated for North American release. These figures are reissues of Japanese releases, now licensed for sale only in the United States and Canada. Please note that all of the Toho 30cm Series re-issues for North America have been re-named the "Godzilla 12in Series." 12in Series Godzilla 1954 "Train Biter" This crazy awesome piece was originally released in March 2016. It features a monochrome paint scheme and stylized sculpt of the original King of Monsters chomping on a train. At 11.5 inches tall, it's noticeably shorter than the rest of the figures in this series. It's X-Plus' first stylized piece in the 30cm Series, but don't let that scare you away. If you'll pardon the anathema, this sculpt improves on the 1954 design. But, yes, if you are an accuracy freak you might want to skip this one. But you'd be missing out on some serious badassery. • Pre-order the 12in Series Godzilla 1954 Train Biter at Flossie's. 12in Series Godzilla 2014 "Blue Fin Emission Version" The Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 2014 "Roar Version" was first released in Japan in February 2016. It has the same sculpt as the original Godzilla 2014 which X-Plus put out in July 2015, but with an upturned head in a roaring pose. This "roar" version also sports translucent fins tinted blue to mimic their look when charging up for a puff of atomic breath. The figure's pose makes it 13 inches tall and one of the tallest in the series. The original sculpt with regular black fins is already set to come out from Diamond in June and can be [...]

X-Plus Gigantic Godzilla 1954 out of the screen and back in again

JOHN RUFFIN / MYKAIJU.COM MyKaiju.com controller, John Ruffin, has long been my favorite digital artist working with X-Plus. He's only just received his Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure by X-Plus, and he's already made another masterpiece with it. I've been saying for years now that X-Plus figures are so good they look like they walked right out of the screen. Here, John puts it back into "the screen" again and the result looks totally authentic. Check out John's photo gallery here on Kaiju Addicts and be prepared to be wowed. And, there is a LOT more to see at John's site: MyKaiju.com. Get some coffee and don't expect to get out of that chair for while when you go. There's enough there to keep you mesmerized for quite a while.

X-Plus Godzilla at SDCC; Four More Vinyls for North America Revealed

Get ready, North America. Even more X-Plus is on the way! Both Diamond and Bluefin, distributors of X-Plus North American releases, have made new reveals this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. And some of them are really surprising. Godzilla 12in Series Godzilla 2000: Millennium PHOTO: KEVIN DeANTONIO It looks like we're getting another Godzilla 2000 from Diamond. It's in addition to the 30cm Series Godzilla 1999/2000 already released by X-Plus in December 2013 which is due to be reissued in North America through Diamond in March 2017. I've read (on the Facebook groups) that this vinyl will be based on an old KOC resin kit which came out around the same time the movie did. It seems to be a bit shorter than other figures in the Godzilla 12in Series (Toho 30cm Series) but this could be due to its forward lean in the pose. The really, really interesting thing about this news is that a Japanese release from X-Plus has not happened yet. This is totally weird and unprecedented. Will Japan still get it first? Will be a North American release only? Or, could it be that X-Plus is beginning to sync their Japanese releases with their North American releases so that every one everywhere gets one at the same time? I really don't know, but that would be fucking sweet. Godzilla 12in Series Godzilla 2014 PHOTOS: KEVIN DeANTONIO The 30cm Series Godzilla 2014 is now on display at the Diamond booth at SDCC. It's actually been planned for quite some time now. In fact, Diamond probably could have been announced it at the same time as they did the '84, '92, '04 and the two Sakai's. Perhaps they were saving it to make [...]

X-Plus Now Taking Orders for Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1954

PHOTO: X-PLUS The Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1954 (ギガンティックシリーズ 酒井ゆうじ 造形コレクション 「ゴジラ1954」) is your chance to own of THE ultimate Godzilla collectibles X-Plus has just opened the pre-order window for the Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure. We knew it was coming, but its arrival is a bit sooner than expected. Gigantic Series figures usually have very long pauses between releases. The Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 had literally just begun to ship when this new figure went up for preorder. No doubt, X-Plus is attempting to capitalize on the imminent release of the Shin Godzilla (Godzilla: Resurgence) movie which features a monster design that is drastically new, yet firmly anchored on the original 1954 design. This figure will be the 5th entry in the Gigantic Series and also the 5th figure in the Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection. It will be the 2nd (technically 3rd if you count the Sakai 1999) non-stylized, movie accurate entry in the Gigantic Series. PHOTO: X-PLUS One key feature of this release is that it has been designed by lauded Godzilla sculptor, Yuji Sakai. His involvement on a figure release instantly raises the price. Because of Mr. Sakai's amazing talent, this figure (I have to say it again:) looks like it walked right out of the movie! The next key feature, and probably the first you'll notice when seeing it in person, is its size. It is a whopping 44cm (17.3") tall. With its lifeless, yet movie-accurate, tail in tow, it has a length of 75cm (29.5"). That's almost two and half feet!
