Gigantic Series Godzilla 1964 Review on Rakuten Blog

News: Photo of Gigantic Series Godzilla 1964 from Mr. Green Tea Blog on Rakuten. X-Plus collector “Mr. Green Tea” has posted a quick photo review of the Gigantic Series Godzilla 1964 on the Rakuten Blog site. It’s in Japanese, but if you use Google Chrome, you could get it translated automatically for you. Not that you really need it. His reviews are usually photo based with very few comments.

I’d like to advise you to be aware that there is significant lens distortion in his photos. There appear to be wide angle and so any portion of the figure which nears the edge of the photo will appear larger than it really is. Because of this you’ll see many photos showing an overly large head. Don’t worry, that’s just the distortion talking.

It’s still early, so any photos at this point are very welcome. Plus you’ll get to see how the jaw on the RIC version swops out, and a size comparison with the Gigantic Series Godzilla 1995.

Don’t forget to bookmark his space on that blog. He semi-regularly posts X-Plus reviews and his is usually one of the first to be available.

You can see his review here.

Pre-orders open for X-Plus Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla

Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla (2016) Fourth Form vinyl figure by X-Plus.

A painted Gigantic Shin Godzilla appears on Hobby Search for Gigantic Bucks

Without warning, the Gigantic Series Godzilla (2016) Fourth Form appeared on Japanese site, Hobby Search, tonight.

All of the images of this release which we have seen up until now have been unpainted. This is the first time we get to see the new Gigantic Shin showing all of its colors.

Hobby Search reports that this beast will be 47cm (18.5 inches) tall and 83cm (32.6 inches – over two feet!) long.

This figure will be the sixth in the Gigantic Series.

UPDATE: STYLIZED? NOT SO MUCH
Up until now, it’s been my opinion that this figure was pretty heavily stylized. The pose is far more dynamic than anything I remember in the movie. Well, I’d like to take that back.

Side by side comparison with X-Plus figure and shot from the movie.

After re-watching Shin Godzilla today, I noticed that Shin Godzilla is in damn near the same pose as the X-Plus figure in the shot where he fires his atomic beam for the second time. Collector Eric Henry then showed me the image above which looks almost exactly like the figure.

So I take it all back. The new Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla is more movie accurate than anything else!

GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL
A recent magazine article in Japan shows this figure alongside the upcoming Large Monster Series Godzilla (2016) Second Form and the Toho 30cm Series Godzilla (2016) Third Form, possibly implying that all three are in scale with each other. All three would make for one hell of a collection.

There is no word yet on a RIC Exclusive version. So, keep watching the X-Plus site or keep checking back here at Kaiju Addicts for more news.

Hobby Search is asking for ¥64,600 (about $570). That, plus a monster of a shipping bill from Japan, may put your wallet into a coma.

GIGANTIC ALTERNATIVE
If the gigantic price of this new figure just doesn’t sit well with you, then you may want to wait for the release of the Toho 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla (2016) Fourth Form due to come out later this year. It just won’t be anywhere near as large.

The Gigantic Series Godzilla (2016) Fourth Form vinyl figure by X-Plus is expected to make its landing in September.

X-Plus Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 Release coming to U.S.

Your second chance to own the ultimate KingGoji collectible has arrived!

The Gigantic Series Godzilla 1962 vinyl figure by X-Plus is to be re-issued for the United States and Canadian markets.

Licensed only for North America, it will be available to comic stores and online retailers exclusively from Diamond Distributors.

Many collectors consider this vinyl to be one of X-Plus’ very best efforts. Sculpted by Gigantic Series regular, Ryu Oyama, this magnificent beast is a work of art.

And, it’s huge! The figure stands 18 inches (45.7cm) tall and has a footspan of 16 inches (40.6cm)! It’s tail curls around the body to save room on the shelf (and in the box) but even that is a 25 inch (63.5cm) span from left foot to tail. It weighs nearly 7 pounds.

Need a visual to appreciate its size?

Nice, huh? You’ll need two hands to big this badass up.

THE PRICE
Diamond lists a suggested retail price of $499.99. That’s a pretty steep climb from the Japanese standard release which was $325 at Hobby Search. But those original figures had only to cross the East China Sea to get to Japan. The boat ride to Diamond is going to be a lot longer.

You should shop around for a good price for this one. Some retailers are bound to offer them and more reasonable rates.

RELEASE DATE
Diamond currently lists an expecting shipping date of February 2018. That’s 8 months from now! At least you’ll have time to save up for it.

WHERE TO ORDER
Diamond would like to encourage you to order through your local comic shop. Ask the guy behind the counter to look it up by it’s Diamond Previews Exclusive name, “Gigantic Series Godzilla vs King Kong Godzilla Fig 1962 Ver.” (Yes, I know. The got the name of the movie wrong. It’s really King Kong vs. Godzilla.).

You could also have them look it up by its current Item Code: MAY178196. Be aware that that code will likely change to a new one at some point.

FLOSSIE’S
Hell, yeah, we’ll have this available at Flossie’s! Keep watching our online store at www.GetXPlus.com.

PRE-ORDER DEADLINE
The “safety net deadline” for retailers to place orders for this figure is August 28, 2017. Any orders from retailers placed after that date will still probably be filled. But there’s no guarantee there will be enough to go around. Diamond isn’t loading up on extra X-Plus stock as much as it has in the past. So to be safe, get your order in before August 28. And make sure the store you order from places their order in to Diamond before August 28 as well.
