Your second chance to own the ultimate KingGoji collectible has arrived!

The Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 vinyl figure by X-Plus is to be re-issued for the United States and Canadian markets.

Licensed only for North America, it will be available to comic stores and online retailers exclusively from Diamond Distributors.

Many collectors consider this vinyl to be one of X-Plus’ very best efforts. Sculpted by Gigantic Series regular, Ryu Oyama, this magnificent beast is a work of art.

And, it’s huge! The figure stands 18 inches (45.7cm) tall and has a footspan of 16 inches (40.6cm)! It’s tail curls around the body to save room on the shelf (and in the box) but even that is a 25 inch (63.5cm) span from left foot to tail. It weighs nearly 7 pounds.

Need a visual to appreciate its size?

Nice, huh? You’ll need two hands to big this badass up.

THE PRICE
Diamond lists a suggested retail price of $499.99. That’s a pretty steep climb from the Japanese standard release which was $325 at Hobby Search. But those original figures had only to cross the East China Sea to get to Japan. The boat ride to Diamond is going to be a lot longer.

You should shop around for a good price for this one. Some retailers are bound to offer them and more reasonable rates.

RELEASE DATE
Diamond currently lists an expecting shipping date of February 2018. That’s 8 months from now! At least you’ll have time to save up for it.

WHERE TO ORDER
Diamond would like to encourage you to order through your local comic shop. Ask the guy behind the counter to look it up by it’s Diamond Previews Exclusive name, “Gigantic Series Godzilla vs King Kong Godzilla Fig 1962 Ver.” (Yes, I know. The got the name of the movie wrong. It’s really King Kong vs. Godzilla.).

You could also have them look it up by its current Item Code: MAY178196. Be aware that that code will likely change to a new one at some point.

FLOSSIE’S
Hell, yeah, we’ll have this available at Flossie’s! Keep watching our online store at www.GetXPlus.com.

PRE-ORDER DEADLINE
The “safety net deadline” for retailers to place orders for this figure is August 28, 2017. Any orders from retailers placed after that date will still probably be filled. But there’s no guarantee there will be enough to go around. Diamond isn’t loading up on extra X-Plus stock as much as it has in the past. So to be safe, get your order in before August 28. And make sure the store you order from places their order in to Diamond before August 28 as well.

Full Review: Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 vinyl figure by X-Plus

Kaiju Addicts Full Review: Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 Vinyl by X-Plus.

X-Plus had tackled fan favorite Godzilla 1962 twice before (post 2008) in both the Large Monster Series and the Toho 30cm Series. The third time is a (big) charm with this latest release. The X-Plus Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962, ギガンティックシリーズ 「ゴジラ(1962)」 was announced in April 2016 and finally landed three months later in July.

This vinyl is super-movie-accurate in both sculpt and paint applications. The result is one helluva King Kong vs. Godzilla collectible. Dare I say ‘the ultimate’ Godzilla 1962 collectible?

It’s about 18 inches tall and its width (or length) from its left foot to the tip of its sideways tail is a whopping 25 inches! It’s got quite a bit of heft to it at almost 7 pounds. Truly Gigantic.

Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 Arrives

A close-up of the Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962.

Our Flossie’s shipment of Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 vinyls just arrived today so I’m a little late to the GG62 party. Not sure why but I wasn’t expecting to be totally blown away as I have. Listen, this thing is waaaaay more impressive in person. Photos and even video don’t do it justice.

I’m nowhere near ready to review this guy but I just had to take a couple of quick shots.
