X-Plus of the Day 11/8/19 – X-Plus Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001

The X-Plus Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001 vinyl figure on my desk.

Hogging my printer on my desk all day today is the Large Monster Series Favorite Sculptors Line King Ghidorah (2001) by X-Plus.

It’s the spitting image of GMK KG. I still find it hard to believe that we finally have a complete roster for GMK.

This figure is shorter than other Ghidorahs in the 25cm Series, as it should be. Yet it’s slightly big for this line. It scales with the other GMK figures so that’s all that matters.

Unlike the other Ghidorahs, this figure comes with the wings already attached. Also unlike the others, you need to put the tail on this one. But it comes with a magnet and pops right on. …and pops right off if you’re not careful. I’d rather have the tail all one piece with the body.

I’m not going to ask you how you like this sculpt because if you don’t, you a crackhead.

What do you think about the tail connection though? Nice? Naughty?


When you have well over 100 X-Plus figures, each one tends to blur out of focus in lieu of the collection as a whole. ‘X-Plus of the Day’ is when I select one of them and keep them on my desk for the day in an attempt to enjoy and appreciate it away from the busy shelves.

X-Plus of the Day 11/6/19 – X-Plus Gigantic Series GMK

The X-Plus Gigantic Series Godzilla 2001 vinyl figure on my desk.

Hanging out on my desk all day today is the Gigantic Series Godzilla (2001) by X-Plus.

This here is the very first figure in the Gigantic Series. It surprised the crap out of everyone the day it was announced.

This is also a Japanese original standard version. (I didn’t care for the mini GMK heart extra.)

When it comes to badass figures, this one leads the pack. Or does it? What do you think?

X-Plus of the Day 10/29/19 – Large Monster Series Mothra 2001

X-Plus Large Monster Series Mothra 2001 vinyl figure on my desk.

Hanging out on my desk all day today is the Large Monster Series Favorite Sculptors Line Mothra 2001. Yes, she came in a set with Baragon 2001.

I wanted to focus just on her today though. The fact that she came in a set may be part of the reason why I never look at her much on the shelves.

Another reason may be because she’s so small. We’ve been spoiled by the hugeness of the Mothra Imago 1961 and 1964. But, this size is accurate for GMK.

It’s been on my desk for only a few minutes and I’m already starting to notice new things about it. Despite its small size, it’s a FANTASTIC vinyl.

Full Review: Toho Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001 vinyl figure by X-Plus

X-Plus Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001 vinyl figure Review.

The Toho Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001 vinyl figure by X-Plus has a fantastic, movie-accurate sculpt, a dazzling spread of seemingly individually sculpted scales, an insanely awesome paint job (which you really do need to see in person to fully appreciate) and an amazing “presence” on the shelf. Check out this review packed with new photos and see why I think it’s one of the best X-Plus figures of 2017.

New X-Plus Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 now up for Preorder

X-Plus Favorite Sculptors Line Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 vinyl figure.

The preorder window for the Favorite Sculptors Line Toho Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 vinyl figure by X-Plus is finally open.

This vinyl is from a previous Monster Maker 28 (MM-28) kit and has been slightly modified by the original sculptor, Shunsuke Niwa for the X-Plus vinyl version. It comes from the same series that brought us the recent Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001 and the Mothra 2001 & Baragon 2001 set.

X-Plus reports that this figure is 28cm tall (about 11 inches). That’s practically the same height as the Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 2001. If you already have the Sakai, you may want to pair it with the rest of your GMK vinyls and skip this new release. But keep in mind this new figure was made to stand with the others in the set.

RIC EXCLUSIVE

X-Plus Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 with light-up fins.

A RIC Exclusive version will feature light-up fins and cost ¥17,820 (currently $164). Reservations started today, February 9, and will end on February 26 at 6pm (Japan time).

You can order the RIC version from the X-Plus site.

Standard versions (without the light gimmick) are available to order from:

• Hobby Search – ¥13,950 ($128.52)

AmiAmi.com – ¥13,980 ($129.59).

Hobby Link Japan – ¥15,500 ($150.61).

Expected release is April 2018.

I originally talked about this new GMK, as well as it’s place with the other GMK figures in this December episode of Kaiju Addicts TV.
