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.
GODZILLA FIGURES PRE-ORDER TO FINALLY OPEN TO OVERSEA
Thank you for choosing us and our figures.
Ever since we've opened our website, we had many questions about the availability of our most popular line-up, Godzilla series figures for international customers, but due to legal issues, we could not sell directly outside Japan. We knew the demands of the international customer, and we were working relentlessly to make it possible.
We have good news! Starting from Items dispatched in April, we will be directly offering our Godzilla and other monsters from TOHO KAIJU series to our international customers!
For the first batch of pre-order includes:
- TOHO 30cm series Yuji Sakai Modeling collection Godzilla(2002) “battle in the storm” Shonen RIC Exclusive ($238.83)
- TOHO Large Kaiju series King Caesar Shonen RIC Exclusive ($117.16)
*There will be some items exclusively available in Japan as well.
We'd like to thank you again for choosing us, and we will continue to strive to deliver great quality figures to more people worldwide.
