The Soft Series Hedorah (Final Form) vinyl figure by X-Plus is now up for preorder. This international release by X-Plus is also a Ric Exclusive-only release. There won’t be a standard version available in stores.
It uses the same sculpt as the Toho Large Monster Series Hedorah (Final Form) and should be considered a part of that series if you display them according to size.
You could almost consider this a reissue if you go by sculpt alone. What makes it different is its “consistency”. Basically, it’s soft. Imagine if you were to take the original off the shelf and blasted it with the hair dryer over the entire figure. That’s kind of what you get with this. Only it’s soft all of the time.
Despite its squishyishness, this figure feels very solid and quite hefty, too. If you missed the regular vinyl release from 2017, this is your chance to reverse that since it’s practically the same thing.
The figure is based on Hedorah’s appearance in the 1971 film, Godzilla vs. Hedorah (Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster). It’s about 28cm (11 inches) tall and will come all in one piece.
Soft Series figures typically come in a bag. Yes, you read that right. A bag with a header card. However, since it’s a Ric, it should come with its own brown shipper box to protect it.
Preorders opened on July 5 and will close on July 30.
You can order one at the X-Plus U.S. store for $135. Keep in mind that you will need to pay for it in full up front at the time of ordering.
You can also order one from us at Flossie’s for $179 if you’d rather wait to pay for the figure when it releases, or if you need a payment plan.
The Soft Series Hedorah (Adult Form) preorder closes on July 30 and is expected to be released in October 2019.
