X-Plus is revisited yet another classic monster from Ultraman. Preorders have just opened for the Large Monster Series Gomora Version 3 from the original Ultraman (1966-1967) two-part episode, The Prince of Monsters.
This classic kaiju is a favorite among Ultraman fans and X-Plus has made strides to improve the sculpt. It will stand at about 24cm (9.4 inches).
The Large Monster Series Sanda vs. Gaira (Version 2) Gargantuas set is now shipping from Japan. And you’ll pleased to know that the pole we all thought would be stuck up Gaira’s ass is actually going to have a clear plastic cradle at the top of it instead. If you’ve ordered this set, you’ll probably be hearing from your source very soon.
If you ordered it from us at Kaiju Addicts and Flossie’s Gifts & Collectibles, they’re already on their way to you!
If you missed out on ordering, NOW is the time to try to pick a set up from the secondary market. Yes, you’ll have to pay an inflated Ebay price, but it’s only going to get worse as time goes by. Hunt these guys down NOW.
SuperKiss67 provides a look at the new Toho 30cm Series Ebirah Standard Version vinyl figure by X-Plus. This isn’t a review. It’s actually a simple series of camera passes at the figure up-close without audio commentary. This is actually pretty useful if you just want to get a good look at the detail on the figure.
The intro is a full minute long (a full 2/5 of the full video), so you may want to scrub ahead to actually see the figure.

The Large Monster Series Pestar vinyl figure by X-Plus was released in early 2010. It was later reissued as a Wonder Festival exclusive soft version in July 2011. It’s based on the oil-eating menace, Pestar which was featured in episode 13 (titled Oil S.O.S. / オイルSOS) of the original Ultraman television series which first aired in 1966.
This is the latest Ultra kaiju to join my collection: the Large Monster Series Pestar by X-Plus. I’ve been wanting one for years now. Don’t know why I didn’t pull the trigger until now.
The details on this are insane! And it’s a dead ringer for the monster in the original Ultraman series (1966-1967). Every time I look at it I’m flung back to Tilton Street where I lived as a kid; where I watched Ultraman reruns on TV every day.
I freaking love these things. Thanks to X-Plus, I finally have the monsters I’ve always wanted. But, hey, we need more Ultraman ’66 monsters, X-Plus! Okay?
