MyKaiju.com controller, John Ruffin, has long been my favorite digital artist working with X-Plus. He’s only just received his Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Godzilla 1954 vinyl figure by X-Plus, and he’s already made another masterpiece with it.

I’ve been saying for years now that X-Plus figures are so good they look like they walked right out of the screen. Here, John puts it back into “the screen” again and the result looks totally authentic.

Check out John’s photo gallery here on Kaiju Addicts and be prepared to be wowed.

And, there is a LOT more to see at John’s site: MyKaiju.com. Get some coffee and don’t expect to get out of that chair for while when you go. There’s enough there to keep you mesmerized for quite a while.

John Ruffin is, by far, one of my favorite X-Plus diorama photographers. His latest creation features Godzilla 1985 (going by the Dr. Pepper billboard) among N-Scale buildings. He also hid some plugs in the photo. Can you find shout outs to Kaiju Addicts, Rich Eso and Skreeonk?
