30cm Series Gigan 1972 Diamond Re-issue About to Ship

The Toho 30cm Series Gigan 1972 vinyl figure by X-Plus.

The Toho 30cm Series Gigan 1972 North American release (or Diamond Re-issue) vinyl figure has arrived at Diamond Distributors‘ warehouse and is preparing to ship out to retailers. Online store and comic shops should receive them on Wednesday, March 3, 2016.

If you made a pre-order with an online store or comic shop, it’s time to start asking them about it.

If you haven’t ordered yet, it should be available at the usual sites. If you plan to ask your local comic shop to order it for you, DO IT NOW. It WILL run out soon. Just make sure they look it up under it’s technically proper name: Godzilla Kaiju 12 Inch Series Gigan 1972.

FLOSSIE’S GIFTS & COLLECTIBLES
If you pre-ordered this figure from my mother and I at Flossie’s Gifts & Collectibles, your wait won’t be long. We can usually process, box and ship about 25 figures a day so I think it will take us 4 days tops to get them all shipped out. Note: orders are capped for this figure at Flossie’s right now. But we did order 30 extras. As soon as I get word that we are in fact receiving them, I’ll make them available to order on the site.

On the fence? Check out my Kaiju Addicts review of the 2015 Ric Boy Reissue. Same Sculpt. Same Paint. (Just no light-up visor.)
