Full Review: Toho 30cm Series Mechagodzilla and Super Mechagodzilla 1993 by X-Plus

Kaiju Addicts Review: Toho 30cm Series Mechagodzilla 1993 vinyl figure by X-Plus.

The Toho 30cm Series Mechagodzilla 1993 and the 30cm Series Super Mechagodzilla (RIC) are both amazing, movie-accurate vinyl versions of the original MG suit. Its size is impressive at a little over 14 inches tall which gives it a bit more shelf “presence” over other figures in the line. Despite being larger, it’s really in scale with the other figures, and that warms my scale freak heart. It’s paint apps seem simple but actually do a great job of representing the colors of this giant robot right from the movie.

It was a long wait and I’m stoked to finally have this guy on my shelf. Its release fills a piece of the void in X-Plus’ Heisei line-up. And, I just can’t recommend this figure enough.

X-Plus 30cm Series Mechagodzilla II (1993) to be Reissued through Diamond

Godzilla Kaiju 12in Series Mechagodzilla (1993 Version) vinyl figure by X-Plus.

The new announcements for North American releases from X-Plus and Diamond just keep coming.

X-Plus’ Toho 30cm Series Mechagodzilla II (1993) was only just announced for a Japanese release not that long ago and is due out any time now. And, before we can even get our hands on the first release, pre-orders have opened for a North American (Diamond) Reissue.

Keep in mind this will be the Standard only. The Super Mechagodzilla configuration with Garuda will not be offered. (Although, X-Plus did give us a Gigan 2004 reissue and then later another Gigan 2004 reissue with all of the RIC parts, so who knows? Maybe they’ll double dip again.)

This reissue is called the Godzilla Kaiju 12in Series Godzilla VS Mechagodzilla II ’93 Version.

Diamond’s SRP is $180. As usual, you’ll be able to order one for less at your favorite online toy store or local comic shop.

Preorders are open at Flossie’s for $149.

The “safe” deadline for dealers is August 4, 2017. If you and your store get them ordered before then, you’ll be guaranteed to get one. If your store orders extra figures before that date, you’ll be able to pre-order them after the deadline.

The current expected ship date for this figure is January 3, 2018. (Date may change.)

Pre-orders Open for X-Plus 30cm Series Mechagodzilla II (1993 Version)

As previously reported, X-Plus is set to release the new Toho 30cm Series Mechagodzilla (1993 Version) and the Toho 30cm Series Super Mechagodzilla vinyl figures.

Often called “Mechagodzilla II“, this kaiju-sized mecha appeared in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993).

The standard version of this figure, available from Japanese stores other than X-Plus, will feature a FANTASTIC vinyl rendering of Mechagodzilla II. What sets this figure apart from the RIC Boy exclusive version — apart from price — is the absence of the Garuda aircraft docked to its back. Also, the belly does NOT include an open Plasma Grenade emitter.

Usually, robotic figures feature some minor articulation. I do not know specifically that that will be the case here, but a translation of X-Plus’ seems that it is indicating that there were previously problems with neck and shoulder articulation and that that has been corrected for this release. Don’t hold me to that, though.

PREORDER NOW
Pre-orders are being taken NOW. But while X-Plus has granted us plenty of time to order the RIC version (May 16), there’s no way of knowing when the Japanese stores will cap orders for this Standard Version. So, don’t delay and place your order soon.

WHERE TO BUY – Click links below
Hobby Search – ¥18,000 / $162 USD.
AmiAmi – ¥18,360 / $165 USD.
Hobby Link Japan – ¥19,000 / $170.

Super Mechagodzilla (RIC BOY)

Toho 30cm Series Super Mechagodzilla (1993 Version) vinyl figure with Garuda by X-Plus.

The RIC Boy Exclusive version gets you the same figure but with 2 big additions. The Garuda aircraft is docked on the back with its front Maser Cannons angles over the shoulders forming Super Mechagodzilla.

Garuda can NOT be removed. I believe, also, that the maser cannons can not be articulated up and down.

The other change is the presence of the Plasma Grenade emitter sculpted on the belly.

This RIC will cost you ¥27,000 / $242. That’s a hefty $70 price increase over the Standard version. Blame the very expensive molds and extra work and assembly required to produce Garuda. If it helps any, it looks fucking Awesome. See for yourself…

PREORDER NOW
You can pre-order the Toho 30cm Series Super Mechagodzilla ONLY from the X-Plus site. The site is in Japanese so you may have trouble starting an account. Also, X-Plus will NOT ship overseas, so you will need a forwarding service like Tenso.com to help you get it.

Too much work? Then order one from California Goji Dealer, Mike Johnson. It’s as easy as writing an email. More information on how to order from Mike is available on Rich Eso‘s Fresh Vinyl website.

The Deadline to order the Ric Exclusive version is May 16 at 6pm, Japanese time.
