Last week X-Plus announced the Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 1975 vinyl figure. It’s based on Godzilla’s appearance in the 1975 movie, Terror of Mechagodzilla.
X-Plus reports that it’s about 30cm tall (11.8 inches) and will come in both a Standard version (available in stores) and a RIC Exclusive version (available from X-Plus directly).
The RIC exclusive version comes with a complete Mechagodzilla 1975 head plus an alternate left arm so that Godzilla can cradle it just as he did in the movie. It is available for pre-order now from the X-Plus site for ¥19,980 (about $180 USD) until July 20 at 6pm (Japan time).
It’s expected to ship in September 2017.
This release is significant in that it’s the first “proper” 30cm Showa Godzilla figure to come out since the Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 1955 which was released waaaaay back in 2011. And only four other 30cm Series Showa figures came out before that in 2010. Note: I’m not counting the Godzilla 1954 “Train Biter” from March 2016 since it’s stylized and not movie accurate. Point is: this new figure is a long, long time coming.
30CM 1975 LINEUP
With this new release, X-Plus’ Terror of Mechagodzilla monster lineup will be complete in the Toho 30cm Series. Both the 1975 Mechagodzilla and Titanosaurus have already been offered. If you don’t have them, no need to worry. The 30cm Series Titanosaurus is available right now as a North American (Diamond) Reissue. And a Diamond Mechagodzilla ’75 is expected to be released in the U.S. this August.
