Toho Large Monster Series Godzilla 1973 (Fierce Fighting Color Version) Ric Boy, 東宝大怪獣シリーズ ゴジラ1973 激闘カラーver. 少年リック限定商品

X-Plus just announced a re-issue of their Large Monster Series Godzilla 1973 vinyl figure.

This figure was first released in late 2010. It has since been reissued in 2012 as a very limited set bundled with an also reissued Jet Jaguar. Both of these releases happened ages ago so this new opportunity to grab Godzilla 1973 is most certainly welcome.

The figure is based on Godzilla’s appearance in the 1973 film, Godzilla vs. Megalon (ゴジラ対メガロ). X-Plus reports the height to be about 23cm (9 inches).

What’s new about this version is its “fierce fighting color” which appears to be simply some tan highlights representing the dirt this guy was rolling around in with Jet, Gigan and Megalon.

A Jet Jaguar reissue has recently hit the streets just as a Gigan and Megalon set had done earlier in March, 2016. Now, with this new Godzilla 1973 release, the tag teams of Godzilla vs. Megalon are complete yet again for newer collectors.

This new, exclusive version will cost you ¥11,880 yen (currently $113, USD) at the X-Plus’ Shounen Ric online store here. It is not openly available anywhere else (besides the upcoming gray market).

Preorders end on Monday, July 25. It is expected to ship around September 2016.
