X-Plus hit Winter Wonder Festival by storm once again with a massive amount of new reveals and updates. The first big news (pun intended) was the reveal of the fully paint Gigantic Mechagodzilla 1974, which looked awesome, but we not only got the figure we got an release date and price, the release date is May 2020 (so pre-orders should be soon) and the price will be 57,200 yen for the Ric and 55,000 yen for the standard. The other big news (yes again) is a Gigantic Burning Godzilla 2019, this unpainted prototype features a closed mouth and clinch fists, no release date was announced.
Also on display was a smaller Large Monster Series Godzilla 2019, this one was also unpainted with no release date.

Another big hit was the 30cm Series Megalon, which many fans loved, this was unpainted with no release date. Both Irys and Gamera '99 were shown again (no update for Irys), as well as a stand in image of Mecha King Ghidorah (not sure what happened with him since he was shown months back).
On the DefoReal side we had Burning Godzilla 2019 along with what appears to be the Ric version (either clear vinyl possibly with a light up function). Also with the DefoReal we got King Caesar both Ric and standard, and a Godzilla 1974 with ape alien.
