The Rotokaiju "Giant Gorilla 1962" on my desk.

Hanging out on the desk all day today is the RotoKaiju Giant Gorilla 1962. This is an indie sculpt based on King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962).

No, it’s not X-Plus. But sometimes you have to look elsewhere to fill certain gaps in your X-Plus collection. Unless something big changes with the license, an X-Plus Toho Kong just ain’t gonna happen.

This Kong is absolutely comparable to X-Plus’ level of awesomeness. It’s just under 30cm so you know shelf it goes on. And it looks fantastic standing next to the 30cm Series Godzilla 1962, or even the FSL Godzilla 1962 which I focused on yesterday.

Keep in mind that this is a kit and needs to be built and painted by yourself. There are also many collectors out there who are also modelers who will put your Kong together for some compensation. I was lucky enough to have Beto of RotoKaiju put this one together for me.

I’m pretty sure this Kong is long sold out. But there are others on the way. Check out the RotoKaiju Facebook Page for more on that:

• Do you have any “stand-in’s” to fill gaps in your X-Plus Collection?

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.
