First the big news: the fourth wave of X-Plus vinyl re-issues licensed for North America have been announced and they are the 30cm Series Godzilla 2003 and the 1961 Mothra Larva.
(Most of these pics get Big, so click on them for higher res shots!)
The X-Plus Godzilla 2003 (“Godzilla × Mothra × Mechagodzilla: Tokyo SOS”) will run you $160 which is waaaay lower than the aftermarket prices of the original release! Pre-orders start January 22, 2014 and the figure is expected to ship in July.
Here’s a link to my review of the X-Plus Godzilla 2003 original release which should be practically the same as the upcoming re-issue from Diamond/Previews.
And here we have the Mothra Larva 1961 from the original “Mothra”. This one has an MSRP of only $90. Again, a STEAL compared to Ebay prices for the original. Pre-orders for this also start January 22, 2014 with an expected to ship date sometime in July.
Here’s a link to my review of the X-Plus Mothra Larva 1961 original release, again, should be the same as the upcoming re-issue.
And already landed on doorsteps is the X-Plus Godzilla 1999 which has received a very warm welcome and rave reviews from collectors.
They did a great job on the fins, but I’m not quite sure they got the color right.
And here is the new Gamera 1999.
I think this one is the most striking of the X-Plus Heisei Gameras. See more at my X-Plus Gamera 1999 Review.
That’s it for now. I won’t be back until I get my Gigantic Series GMK shortly after the new year. Please visit KaijuAddicts.com for more reviews and X-Plus news!
