Hanging out all day on my desk today is the Toho Large Monster Series Biollante. This figure is surely the centerpiece for many an X-Plus collection. If you combine its mass with its spread, you’ve got something at nearly Gigantic Series proportions.
This is one of the earlier figures with which X-Plus pushed boundaries and they did it way back in the autumn of 2011. She’s been reissued a few times since then and yet remains somewhat elusive to those on the hunt.
I remember nabbing this Japanese original for over $700 back when I was going into X-Plus withdrawal only a couple of days after any Box Day.
This is absolutely one of X-Plus’ crowning achievements. What do you think?

When you have well over 100 X-Plus figures, each one tends to blur out of focus in lieu of the collection as a whole. ‘X-Plus of the Day’ is when I select one of them and keep them on my desk for the day in an attempt to enjoy and appreciate it away from the busy shelves.
