Today, X-Plus is displaying a lot of new figures at Winter Wonder Festival 2017 in Chiba, Japan. The biggest story here is, of course, the upcoming Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla.
As you can see, this new Shin is very stylized just like the Gigantic GMK and Burning Godzilla.
If you look closely at the first photo, you’ll see an alternate head in front of the figure. This could be the RIC Exclusive. There are photos of the prototype with this closed mouth head on in the photos below.
EARLY PHOTOS OF THE GIGANTIC SHIN GODZILLA
These early photos show the figure being worked on and aren’t as complete as the one at Wonder Festival. But they do give you a closer look at the detail and also what’s going on with that tail.
Now back to Wonder Festival…
SHIN GODZILLA: STAGE 2 AND STAGE 3
Also on display were a Large Monster Series Shin Godzilla Stage 2 and a 30cm Series Shin Godzilla Stage 3.
30CM YUJI SAKAI SHIN GODZILLA
Not enough Shin? There’s more: the 30cm Series Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection Shin Godzilla was announced with only a sign. Fortunately, the figure was at the show, at Mr. Sakai’s booth.
This will be released as a pricey limited edition (60) resin kit. Later on, X-Plus will put it out in vinyl as a 30cm Series figure (possibly Summer?)
LARGE MONSTER SERIES GODZILLA 2004
The upcoming Large Monster Series Keizer Ghidorah painted prototype with a newly announced Large Monster Series Godzilla 2004 to go with it.
GABARA! RIC MINYA!
A painted version of the upcoming Large Monster Series Gabara with an unpainted Minya. Looks like Minya might be the RIC exclusive?
LARGE MONSTER SERIES KING GHIDORAH
Here is the Large Monster Series Godzilla 2001 pitted against the upcoming Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 2001. You can better see the RIC exclusive glitter effect in the second photo.
WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS BUSTS
Again, no word on when most of this is coming out or even going up for pre-order. And, so, we wait.
2017 is going to be a kickass year for X-Plus.

Kaiju Addicts TV: First New Figures For 2017, King Ghidorah’s New Box And Godzilla 1984’s Sculpt Modification And More
Episode 3 of Kaiju Addicts TV is now available.
In this episode, I review recent X-Plus releases in Japan and North America. We learn about upcoming releases including a Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 1995, Large Monster Series Titanosaurus and Keizer Ghidorah. We were also recently teased with a Large Monster Series Gabara and GMK King Ghidorah.
We discuss the problems with the Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 1968‘s packaging from the original release and look at why the new box is so much better.
Also, we’ll take a look at a surprising sculpt modification on the North American reissue of the 30cm Series Godzilla 1984 which now stands taller. And a quick guest review of the Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1999 by Leslie Chambers.
Finally, we take a quick look at some fantastic toy photography featuring X-Plus, by collector, John Ruffin from his site, MyKaiju Godzilla.
