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