John Ruffin’s Godzilla vs. Destroyah Poster with X-Plus

GIGANTIC SERIES GODZILLA 1995 AND LARGE MONSTER SERIES DESTOROYAH POSTER COMPOSITE BY JOHN RUFFIN.

John Ruffin knocked me OUT OF MY CHAIR when I saw this one! This Godzilla vs. Destroyah movie poster composite was made using photos of the Gigantic Series Godzilla 1995 and the Large Monster Series Destoroyah vinyl figures from X-Plus.

This work is a testament to the outstanding sculpts from X-Plus, and the outstanding artistry of John Ruffin. Everything about this piece is PERFECT!

Get a quick look at more of John’s photos from his own Gallery here on Kaiju Addicts.

Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 2000 Announced

Clip of a publication announcing the X-Plus Gigantic Series Sakai Godzilla 2000.

X-Plus just announced a new entry into the Gigantic Series and it’s about bloody time! Meet the Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Modelling Collecting Godzilla 2000!

This is not based off the suit from the movie Godzilla 2000: Millennium (ゴジラ2000 ミレニアム) but rather a design from conceptual artist Shinji Nishikawa, the man responsible for making the initial designs for many Heisei and Millennium kaijus. The sculpt, of course, comes from the great Yuji Sakai.

I first saw this news when collector Brian Jow posted the photo above on the X-Plus Kaiju Collectors Club Facebook Group. (BTW, if you want X-Plus news as quick as possible, JOIN THIS GROUP! We have agents everywhere!) I do not know which publication this is, but I have some friends in Japan trying to find out. If you recognize it, please contact me and let me know by email or in the comments.

If you want a better look at the figure and have the Yuji Sakai Dream Evolution book, the resin version is on Page 19.

Hell, let’s get a better look now:

39cm Yuji Sakai sculpt of Godzilla 2000 Nishikawa design.

Yeah, I’m feelin’ this one! But, keep in mind the photo above is of the Resin version. We’re sure to loose some detail in the vinyl version.

Collector Dell Champagne Martinez used his Japanese powers to translate the text from the original photo. It reads:

X-Plus Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Gojira 2000 Millennium. It will be released in September and the price is yet to be determined. Limited sales.
It faithfully reproduces Shinji Nishikawa’s 2 dimensional design with the sharp dorsal fins and rows of teeth, in three dimensions. Height is approximately 400 millimeters. Prototype supervision by Yūji Sakai.

400 millimeters is 40cm, or 15.74 inches. Hmm. Gigantic Series Godzilla 1995 is 18.5 inches tall. This new figure will be about 3 inches shorter than GBG, and only about 4 inches taller than the 30cm Series. But, don’t get so disappointed, that’s still a pretty BIG figure! The higher it is, the wider it is, and the overall more bulk it has. Don’t worry, it will certainly command attention.

Also, note how the tail is raised off the ground; a Sakai trademark I’m beginning to dislike. Looks like this figure will need a base to support the tail like the Gigantic Series Godzilla 2001.

As for price… I’m almost afraid to know what it will be. Gigantic Series figures have hefty price tags. Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection figures also have hefty price tags. Put the two together and I fear we’ll have a price so high that most of us will have significant trouble being able to cover. We’ll have to wait and see.

Oh, and did you notice something interesting? The Yuji Sakai Modelling Collection is no longer confined to the 30cm Series. I wonder if we’ll get even more different sizes in the future. Time to pull out your Yuji Sakai Dream Evolution book and flip through for possibilities. You can get a copy at Flossie’s while they last.

So, what do you think? Do you want to go after this figure? Chime in with a comment below and be automatically entered for a chance to win a Free Kaiju Addict Photo Book (details to come).

Daring Gigantic Burning Godzilla Re-Paint

X-Plus Gigantic Series Godzilla 1995 re-paint by Mark Callaway.

Sugoi! Have you ever wondered what your X-Plus Gigantic Series Godzilla 1995 vinyl figure would look without those itchy, burning patches? Now, thanks to collector Mark Callaway (a regular on the X-Plus Kaiju Collectors Club Facebook Group), you don’t have to!

Mark made the bold move to cover those brilliant, translucent firey patches of red and orange with a fresh coat of standard Godzilla-black.

He feathered in an ash white over those burning dorsal plates as well. The only part he couldn’t resolve were those tiny, piercing eyes which he left as they are.

So, why the hell would anyone give up those awesome burning patches that came with the figure?

That’s easy. Mark has more than one!
