X-Plus was at Winter Wonder Festival 2019 and had a number of reveals, the biggest reveal (pun intended) was Gigantic Godzilla 2019. This figure was just a prototype but looked awesome, no release date was given but it should be out around the film's release or afterwards. Also on display was Mecha King Ghidorah, this figure was teased when X-Plus showed the two '64 Ghidorahs, it was also a prototype and did not have a release date. What was ready for release was a new Godzilla 2000 LMS figure which should be released May 2019. Next to him was artwork for the second figure designed by Dopepope (Irys was the first), which again he knocked it out of the park. There was a image of a new Godzilla 1964 figure which looks to be when Godzilla comes ashore and sees Rodan. Also on display was Mechagodzilla and Godzilla both appear to be 1974 versions but it is unclear if they were new figures or re-releases. There was a number of DefoReal figures on display, Kong Battling the Mir Squid, and Frozen Shin Godzilla. There was also some Ultraman releases shown including a new Bemstar, and Gomora among others. Check out our Facebook page for more pics, pics from X-Plus, John Ruffin, and others.
Tanaka Studio has announced two releases for Winter Wonder Festival, a Shin Godzilla Fourth Form Bust and a Shin Godzilla Fourth Form Roaring Version statue. Both items are kits the bust stands 17.5cm tall and will retail for 10,000 yen, it will be a very limited release only at Wonder Festival. The statue stands 30cm tall and is similar to the non roaring version they released previously, it will retail for 39,000 yen (before tax). There will be a web reservation in March for the statue.
Hazawa Gumi is releasing the G Memories Selection Decisive Battle Godzilla Black Version figure. It will initially be available for sale at Winter Wonder Festival 2019 on Feb 10th and a web sale on Feb 18th. This figure stands 17cm tall and retail for 5,400 yen, from Hazawa Gumi.
X-Plus has announced that they will be releasing their Godzilla/Toho vinyl figures to US customers via their US site. This is a win for US fans because up to now fans would have to go the route of a buying service, or some other means, to get these figures. That round about method would cause them additional cost. While fans would still be paying international shipping it makes it much easier to get these figures now. There are still questions particularly if this affects their agreement with Diamond or not, Diamond cancelled most unreleased figures they had planned. Check out the X-Plus press release below.
