X-Plus was at Super Festival 79 and gave us not one, not two, but three King Ghidorah figure reveals. We seen the first one before first unpainted than painted, King Ghidorah 1964 which will be released March 2019 so it should be available for pre-order soon. The second is the same figure but with the original color scheme red white, and blue (Rainbow Ghidorah) before Toho decided to go with the all gold look. This one should also hit soon with a March release date. The third one is a teaser reveal, Mecha King Ghidorah, it wasn't fully revealed but a dark photo that gives the basic design but no specific detail, and no release info yet. Also revealed was some Ultraman figures including a new Ultraman Tiga, that is coming April.
X-Plus has shown the DefoReal Godzilla 1998 a couple of times at different shows now we have official pics and info. This figure stands 13cm tall and the Ric comes with a separate hatching baby Godzilla (including a fish on it's base), this figure will retail for 7,992 yen (approx $71 US). It can be pre-ordered now from X-Plus (Ric) and other retailers (standard) with release scheduled for March 2019. A side note the X-Plus post refers to this figure as "Emegoji", so we now have a somewhat of an official designation, maybe.
