X-Plus King Ghidorah Vinyl Figure Rears Its Heads
X-Plus has just revealed the first image of the much anticipated Toho Large Monster Series King Ghidorah 1968 (東宝大怪獣シリーズ キングギドラ1968)! It’s currently on display at their booth at the Summer Wonder Festival show in Tokyo. The image was just posted on X-Plus’ Twitter account.
It will be a part of the Toho Large Monster Series where most figures are typically 25cm tall (about 10 inches), but as you can see in the photo, the figure looms high above other figures in the series and has wings that teeter over even 30cm figures.
They tweeted that the figure will be available later this year and that it is still pending approval.
New 30cm Godzilla 1989 Figure by Yuji Sakai
But wait! That’s not all! Images ’round the web are showing a sign on the same table showing a new 30cm sculpt of Godzilla 1989 which was sculpted by Yuji Sakai. The image on the sign matches this sculpt (shown above) found on page 28 of Sakai’s book Godzilla Dream Evolution.
An X-Plus figure based on a Yuji Sakai sculpt is a dream come true. But it’s going to come at a steeper price. ¥29,700. (Currently converts to $291.)
X-Plus may have looked like it was falling asleep at the wheel for the past few months, but apparently they were hard at work getting ready to knock our socks off!
No word yet as to pre-order or release dates.
