Leslie Chambers Reviews the Real Master Collection Gamera 1995 statue by X-Plus

Leslie Chambers reviews the Real Master Collection Gamera 1995 Poster Variant resin vinyl statue by X-Plus. It was released in 2018.

Note that this review is about the Poster Variant which has modified paint apps to mimic the movie  Gamera: Guardian of the Universe (1995) movie poster. X-Plus previously released this figure in both 30cm Series vinyl and also the Real Master Collection with slightly different colors.

Also, this statue has an awesome way to turn on the Ric Exclusive light-up feature. Watch the video for more on that.

X-Plus to Reissue Destoroyah Ric with Lights

X-Plus’ Destoroyah Reissue (now with light gimmick) now up for Preorder.

The Toho Large Monster Series Destoroyah vinyl figure by X-Plus is now available to order again. This truly amazing vinyl was first released back in December of 2015. It followed the Large Monster Series Godzilla 1995 which was released the summer before.

But, there’s something special about this release. Unlike the original release, this one will have light-up eyes and horn.

Also new is the way X-Plus is taking orders. There is no deadline. Instead, X-Plus will end orders as soon as a predetermined number of reservations is reached. Because of this, we have no idea at all when the preorder window will close.

This is good in that you may have more time to place your order, like the Godzilla 2016 Form 2 figure which is still taking orders. Then again, you could wake up one day to discover your chance is gone, just like that.

Reservations started today, July 21. X-Plus is asking for ¥29,700 (currently $266 USD).

There is no standard version of this release. If you want it, you’ll have to take the RIC. It will be available only from the X-Plus Ric store, Premium Bandai and the Godzilla Store. All three stores are in Japanese and will NOT ship overseas so you’ll need a forwarding service like Tenso.com or have a friend with connections get one for you.

This figure is expected to release in October 2017.

COMMENTARY NOTES

• This figure is freaking amazing. The intricate details, textures and paint applications make this one of the most impressive figures X-Plus has ever put out.

• Despite being in the smaller (25cm) series, this figure is big. And not only because the suit was bigger; it’s actually big for the series. Both it and the Large Monster Series Godzilla 1995 are oversized enough that they seem to need to belong to another series somewhere between the 25’s and the 30’s. So they’re technically not in scale with the rest of your Large Monster Series Collection.

There is a place for it though. Destoroyah (and Godzilla 1995) scale very well all of the figures in the Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection.

• It’s heavy. To help keep its balance, both legs are filled with resin. It will never topple over.

• The wings come already attached. You need only add the tail.

• This figure has a tendency to arrive with a detached wing. Because of what I feel are oversights in the packaging, it’s not uncommon to have your figure arrive with one of the wings popped out of it’s socket.

The floor of the styrofoam shell is too thin in my opinion. There are also two pockets of space below that (in the box and in the case box) which can permit this heavy figure to shift downward if the package is plopped down. The tip of the wings are held in place by the snug styrofoam pit in which it sits, while the rest of the figure is “permitted” to shift slightly downward.

But don’t worry. The wings can be easily reattached using superglue. They connect very easily each using a “tab” (no suction cups). You’ll just have to be patient while you sit there are hold the wing while it sets.

• Finally, it really does need to be repeated: this figure is freaking amazing. It almost feels like it needs to belong to a super premium X-Plus line or something. It really is that good.
