X-Plus Reveals the Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla and a LOT more!

Today, X-Plus is displaying a lot of new figures at Winter Wonder Festival 2017 in Chiba, Japan. The biggest story here is, of course, the upcoming Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla.

As you can see, this new Shin is very stylized just like the Gigantic GMK and Burning Godzilla.

If you look closely at the first photo, you’ll see an alternate head in front of the figure. This could be the RIC Exclusive. There are photos of the prototype with this closed mouth head on in the photos below.

These early photos show the figure being worked on and aren’t as complete as the one at Wonder Festival. But they do give you a closer look at the detail and also what’s going on with that tail.

30CM YUJI SAKAI SHIN GODZILLA

Not enough Shin? There’s more: the 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Shin Godzilla was announced with only a sign. Fortunately, the figure was at the show, at Mr. Sakai’s booth.

We discuss the problems with the Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 1968‘s packaging from the original release and look at why the new box is so much better.

Also, we’ll take a look at a surprising sculpt modification on the North American reissue of the 30cm Series Godzilla 1984 which now stands taller. And a quick guest review of the Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1999 by Leslie Chambers.

X-Plus revealed a prototype of an upcoming Large Monster Series Gabara on their table at Super Festival 73 in Tokyo this weekend (Sunday, January 8).

Gabara is the bully from All Monsters Attack (ゴジラ•ミニラ•ガバラ オール 怪獣大進撃), 1969. Many collectors have been clamoring for this for a long time now. Once again, X-Plus delivers.

Gabara is expected to be released in June 2017. No word yet on price.

GODZILLA 1999

Getting second bill on the table was a variant of the Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 1999 from Godzilla 2000: Millennium (ゴジラ2000 ミレニアム).

The original release came out in Japan in December 2013 and a North American reissue (of the original) is expected to be released through Diamond Distributors this month in the U.S.

This new variant (to be available in Japan) sports a modified head sculpt with open mouth (it was closed on the original release) and translucent fins tinted a reddish orange to mimic Godzilla’s look as he prepares to unleash his atomic breath. Also, it appears in this photo that this figure has reddish-brown highlights over its asphalt black skin.<
