Combining an Original 25cm Godzilla 1964 with the new Mothra 1964

The new Large Monster Series Mothra 1964 Ric Boy version came paired with a re-issue of the Large Monster Series Godzilla 1964. Some collectors, though, already had the original release of the 25cm Series Godzilla '64 already sitting on their shelves and so opted to buy Mothra solo. Thing is, there's a footprint on Mothra's sandy base meant for Godzilla's foot to rest in. The new G'64 comes with a small base that rests under his tail and lets one foot sit on Mothra's base and the other on the shelf. Owners of the original Godzilla '64, though, have a completely different, fuller base with raises the figure slightly off the shelf and supports it into a standing position. (The figure can't stand properly without something holding the tail up.) Now, just because you have an original Godzilla beside a new Mothra doesn't mean you can't arrange them the same way as the Ric set was meant to. As I already demonstrated in my recent 25cm Godzilla 1964 Review, you can have the figure stand directly on the shelf and still use the base to support the tail, just not in the way in which it was intended. So, if you like, you can still "connect" these two figures even if you don't have that new mini base for Godzilla. Just press his foot into the footprint, press and hold it while sliding the original base behind him until his right heal and tail rest on it.

Mothra / Godzilla 1964 Base News

I'm not sure how I missed this but X-Plus showed off the base design for the new Large Monster Series Mothra 1964 Ric Boy Exclusive with Godzilla 1964 on their blog. Looks like the egg will indeed be removable from the base. Good news, methinks! You now have options as to how you want it to look on your shelves. And toy photographers, rejoice! I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of 'outside' shots of this set. And this photo settles the question "Will G'64 come with the base?" once and for all. Instead of the rocky platform that rose previous releases of the 25cm Godzilla 1964 to a height above other Godzilla figures in the line, you'll be getting a little tail support instead. I kind of like this. Now Godzilla 1964 will be level with his brothers on the shelf. I kind of wish X-Plus would make this rocky nub available separately for those of us who already have the G'64 and don't like the original base. But, don't fret. If you have an original and want your 64's feet on the ground, I have an idea for that you use right now on my review.

April X-Plus Releases Announced: Mothra 1964, Godzilla 1991 and Appearance Pose Ultraman

X-Plus just announced their new releases and this is a whopper of a month! SAKAI GODZILLA 1991 First up is the Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1991 Hokkaido Version -- another mouthful of a name! It's 27.5cm (10.8 inches) tall (yes, another shorty) and about 44cm (17.3 inches) long! There will be both Standard and Ric Boy versions. The Ric exclusive version will come with a 12-LED light gimmick in the dorsal fins. It will come with a newly designed "battery box" which will now house 4 AAA batteries. As you can see in the photo gallery at the end of this post, the tail on this new Sakai is well above the floor. No word yet on whether or not some sort of "base" will be included to hold the tail up. The price for the Ric Boy version is ¥28,620 (currently $239). Pre-orders for the Ric are now open and will close March 16. The standard is up for pre-order for ¥22,500 (currently $188) at Hobby Search. It is expected to ship in Late April or May. Click here to see the Sakai '91 on the X-Plus Ric Boy Site. MOTHRA 1964 AND GODZILLA 1964 SET The new Toho Large Monster Series Mothra 1964 with base and egg is getting released in a Ric Boy Exclusive set along with a Large Monster Series Godzilla 1964 re-issue. There is a Standard Version of Mothra which WILL come with the egg, but not with Godzilla. Mothra is 38cm (14.9 inches) in height (on the stand) and has a wingspan of 64cm (25.1 inches). As reported before, the wings are made of ABS material and will not droop in warmer temperatures. Like the [...]

X-Plus Mothra 1964, Godzilla 1964, 1989, Biollante and Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1991 at Winter Wonder Festival 2015

Winter Wonder Festival in Chiba, Japan is just getting started and already we have a couple peeks at the X-Plus table. Here's our first look at a painted version of the upcoming Large Monster Series Mothra Imago 1964! Beside her is the LMS Godzilla 1964 which is expected to get re-issued. And perhaps even (literally) bigger news is the presence of the Large Monster Series Biollante on the table. WOW! Collectors have been clamoring for a Biollante re-issue and it seems their wishes are about to come true. And she's not alone, the Large Monster Series Godzilla 1989 is up for reissue as well! Oh, wait, there's more... Both Biollante and Godzilla are coming with light gimmicks. You can see the 光 (hikari-light-shine) symbol on the sign! It also seems they will be bundled together in a set. There are reports that this set will go up for pre-order around May 2015. Not enough for ya? How about the next entry into the Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection? The Sakai Godzilla 1991 Hokkaido Version has been teased just like the first entry was with a sign on the table. And if you remember correctly, it was not long at all before the figure actually went up for pre-order! Here's a photo of the prototype X-Plus sent to me last month. Lookin' good! If you have the Yuji Sakai Godzilla Dream Evolution book, turn to page 29 -- that's him! Sakai also made a Godzilla 1991 Shinjuku version which looks a bit too similar in pose to the 1989 Osaka version we already have. So I think the Hokkaido version was the better choice, especially since it has a closed mouth. (I'd like to see more closed-mouth [...]

X-Plus Godzilla 2014, Mothra 1964 at Super Festival 67

X-Plus attended Super Festival 67 yesterday and had some new stuff on their table! Namely the 30cm Series Godzilla 2014 prototype. This time, however, it has two heads! One is in an awesome roaring pose (as you can see on the photo "borrowed" from the Kaiju Korner blog.) I guess that means it's coming with a visible seam (actually a joint now) like the 30cm Baragon 1965. Sorry to complain. Hate unnecessary seams. I'm betting that the extra interchangeable head will come with the Ric Boy version and that it will be the roaring version. Save your pennies, kids. This figure looks like it's going be a big one. It's hard to tell from the photo angle but if you compare it to Mothra (assuming it's as high as the '61) and the Godzilla '64, looks like Godzilla 2014 might be a head above most 30cm Series figures. Also gleaned from this Kaiju Korner photo is a better view of the leg stance. It looks noticeably wider than on previous photos of the prototype because of this new angle. Looks like they may be going for the big airport reveal scene pose, or possibly the victory roar pose at the end of the final fight with Mama MUTO. And, what's this at the far end of the table? Mothra 1964? With an egg? Nice! Looks like the new figure will have the same "pose" as the Mothra Imago 1961 version. The egg seems to be attached to the base and is more than likely a Ric Boy exclusive extra. I will post more photos here as they come in.

Full Review: X-Plus Large Monster Series Mothra (Imago) 1961 Vinyl Figure

In 2012, X-Plus released the Toho Large Monster Series Mothra Imago 1961 Edition Vinyl Figure based on the very first appearance of this classic kaiju from the film Mothra (モスラ) from way back in the early ’60s. And what a beaut! This figure is probably one of, if not THE, very best likenesses of Mosura ever put to vinyl. Click Here for the Review! […]
