X-Plus 30cm Series Gigan 1972.

X-Plus just announced a new figure from their Ric Boy Twitter feed. Put your metallic hooks together for Gigan!

The Toho 30cm Series Gigan 1972 will be re-issued as a Ric Boy Exclusive with light-up visor gimmick. It looks like this figure will be available only from X-Plus’ Ric Boy Web Store and will be limited to 300 editions.

Orders opened December 25 at 6:00 p.m. Japan time. The price is ¥21,600 (currently U.S. $179.29). It is expected to be released in February 2015.

Keep in mind that this figure is noticeably SHORTER than most other entries in the 30cm Series.

It’s also been very hard to find in the pricey aftermarket.

• The Toho 30cm Series Gigan 1972 was originally released in 2010.
• It was offered again as a polyresin version from the Real Master Collection, also in 2010.
• The vinyl version was re-issued in 2011 as a Wonderfest Special with an alternate “Nighttime” paint scheme.

This is a great opportunity to get this version of Gigan if you don’t already have one. You may not want to wait and hope for a Diamond Reissue since those have either been stalled or outright cancelled. Now is the time to Grab a Gigan!
