X-Plus knows how to surprise us and this time it is at Super Festival 80, with a ton of reveals. The first big reveal is a DefoReal Godzilla 2019 with him shooting his atomic breath in the air, it looks like his breath glows or is a light up but that may just be the lighting. Another surprise was a Favorite Sculptors Line Godzilla 1962 with a base. Also shown was the Godzilla 1964 with what might be two Ric bonuses a mini Mothra larva and flying Rodan. Orga also appeared in an unpainted prototype, it is unclear if this is the Dopepope figure, and has a space changing to Orga Ric bonus it seems. Mogera 1957 was on display as well. A 30cm Baraugon will be coming July too. An Ultraman A appearance pose prototype was there as well. Also displayed was a number of announced releases including a good comparison of the two versions of Burning Godzilla that was just announced. What we thought was puzzling we still have got Irys yet hopefully soon though. Photo credits to X-Plus and others via Twitter.
