GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK 2XLP
Terror in Tokyo! Godzilla is back and is determined to cause as much damage as possible in GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA. After the Big G delivers a crippling blow to the JXSDF (Japanese Xenomorph Self-Defence Force), the government decides to build a new weapon to defeat Godzilla. Their solution: Kiryu, aka Mechagodzilla, a metal monster packed with all the firepower needed to put Godzilla down. But things go awry when Kiryu malfunctions and turns on the JXSDF, thanks to its use of the original Godzilla's DNA. Can they get back control and put an end to the Big G?
Selected to score GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA was Michiru Ōshima (GODZILLA VS MEGAGUIRUS, STAR WARS: VISIONS), who brought an exciting and heroic musical aesthetic to the film. Employing the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, Ōshima's music sounds as enormous and powerful as the kaiju themselves, with a new menacing theme for Godzilla that uses the lower registers to bring across his immense force. In contrast, Ōshima's theme for Kiryu uses high brass for an almost superheroic feel, with both themes working beautifully in counterpoint to each other when the two titans have their rumble. As scary as it is thrilling, Michiru Ōshima's GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA is one of the most significant scores to emerge from the hallowed halls of Toho.

GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Michiru Ōshima. Artwork by Luke Preece. Numbered edition of 2000 featuring 2 x 140g LPs housed inside a gatefold sleeve with a screen-printed D side. $45
GODZILLA VS. KING GHIDORAH - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK LP
Japan faces its ultimate doom as Godzilla's deadliest foe is back in GODZILLA VS KING GHIDORAH. Visitors from the 23rd Century arrive with grave news; Godzilla will destroy Japan in the future. Time travelling back to when Godzilla was born, they prevent the birth, but something goes wrong, as when they come back to the present day, the monstrous three-headed King Ghidorah is on the rampage instead. A secret conspiracy is soon unmasked, and only one outcome will save the country: Godzilla must return!
GODZILLA VS KING GHIDORAH saw the return of legendary composer Akira Ifukube to the series, his first since 1975's TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA. He showed no sign of slowing down, providing a thrilling and muscular score dominated by the presence of the two headliners. Godzilla's theme and fanfare are presented beautifully by Ifukube, along with the terrifying material for Ghidorah. The composer also wonderfully integrates earlier music from RODAN and KING KONG VS GODZILLA that - along with his terrific new music - results in a musical monster throw-down for the ages. No one knew Godzilla better than Akira Ifukube, and GODZILLA VS KING GHIDORAH proves it.
GODZILLA VS. KING GHIDORAH - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Akira Ifukube. Artwork by Greg Ruth. Numbered edition of 1000 featuring 1 x 140g LP pressed on Three Headed Vinyl housed inside a gatefold. $35

X-Plus had a booth at Winter Wonder Festival 2023, they had some interesting reveals showing what could be a continuing change in direction from the past. X-Plus revealed Gigantics, DefoReals, Model Kits, and Favorite Sculptors Line figures. The new Gigantics include a FSL Destoroyah base on a Black Dragon Studio kit that will be a resin figure per info and be 64cm tall, it looks to be coming soon since it was fully painted. A Godzilla 2002 was shown as well it is similar to the 2003 released previously but with a different head pose it was an early prototype, another Gigantic shown was an FSL Alien Baltan, this was also an early prototype. A Godzilla 1992 LMS was shown, like the others it was an early prototype. Another FSL Gigantic is Ultraman C Type featuring him holding a ship with base based on Episode #36 (it is designed by Liu Sakamoto(?)). Also from Ultraman is the Shin Ultraman Gabora which will feature two heads (Neronga has been previously shown).
On the DefoReal front they announced the second Gigantic DefoReal, Godzilla 1954 Trainbiter, this figure looks basically finished so release should be soon. Another ready for release was the Godzilla 2003 with Kamoebas (most likely the Ric option). A bit of surprise but maybe not was the Evangelion 1st Unit "G" Awakening Form based on the recently re-release 30cm figure, this one is a prototype but looks good.
Another area that has been steadily expanding is the model kit line, it features the Shin Ultraman 1/250 Plastic Model Kit, Gamera 1999 1/700 Plastic Model Kit, Redosaurus and Lighthouse Plastic Model Kit, 1/8 Scale Plastic Model Kit Cyclops Fluorescent Version (releasing Aug 2023), 1/8 Scale Plastic Model Kit Metropolis based on a film scene, 1/8 Scale Plastic Model Kit Blue & Beta from Jurassic World: Dominion, 1/8 Scale Plastic Model Kit Dracula (1931).

Also shown again was the Masterpiece Series Princess of Mars Dejah Thoris figure which will release later this year retailing for 34,500 yen, it looks like a beautifully done statue. Last but not least was the two new color reveals of the Space Cyclops, orange and and ice color. More info on all the announcements as we get it.
