The Toho Large Monster Series Angurius 1968 was first released in Japan in 2012. It was reissued there twice more; once in 2015 and again in early 2018. That last one is going to be released any time now here in the U.S.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to dive into the Large Monster Series, then this review is for you.
Rich Eso reviews the Toho Large Monster Series Anguirus 1968 (東宝大怪獣シリーズ 「アンギラス（1968年版）」) vinyl figure by X-Plus.
This is actually an older review which was originally published in 2014. I’m embedding it in a new post because it’s highly relevant now with the upcoming Diamond Reissue due out in early June 2018.

Outside the Box Reviews takes a look at the Toho 30cm Series Anguirus 1968 (Diamond Re-issue) by X-Plus.
X-Plus has just announced that they will be releasing a Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 1955 and Anguirus 1955 Limited Showdown Set (東宝30cmシリーズ ゴジラ1955&アンギラス1955 限定対決セット). It will be available from both Bandai and the X-Plus Ric Boy Online Shop.
This set will be yet another re-issue of both Toho 30cm Series Figures combined into one set. Each monochrome figure was originally released, separately, in 2011. A colorized set was later released, also in 2011. Most recently, both figures were re-issued again in 2014, but licensed only for North America.
Because of the recent Diamond Comics Distributors releases, these figures are not rare in the West by any means, but for mainstream Japanese collectors who haven’t seen these beasts for four long years (although Diamond reissues are readily available in shops like Mandarake), this is a great opportunity.
If you missed out on this pair, this is a great chance to grab both in one go. And for a hell of a price! ¥30,000 for the set (currently USD $249).
Curiously, there is no mention of a pre-order deadline; only a release date: May 2016 (the same as the DeAgostini Godzilla 1954 Train in Mouth figure).

Some collectors have voiced concern over yet another batch of re-issues. But, this is a Bandai release and it is not taking up a slot in X-Plus’ regular release schedule. Think of this as a bonus, especially if you don’t have them!
