Earlier this month X-Plus teased a 25cm Titanosaurus, which is now available for preorder. Titanosaurus is slated for a late March/early April 20117 release. The RIC exclusive for the figure is offered with a closed fan tail option while the standard option will be an open fan tail. The RIC is priced at 15,012¥/$127. No standard release has been announced at this time, but one can speculate that it will be announced shortly…I guess. The release of this figure will complete the Terror of MechaGodzilla 25cm line as both the 25cm Godzilla 1975 and MechaGodzilla 1975 have been released already, over three years ago. Preorder window for the RIC Exclusive closes on January 16, 2017 at 18:00 local time in Tokyo.
Hey guys! Before you watch this video, go in with the mindset that this is my opinion based on how I have seen things evolve within the X-Plus community. New “collectors” within the past 2 years or so seem to not realize how a production line works in a Chinese factory with a small production window. X-Plus has grown immensely in the last few years. They are cranking out more figures in a small window of time. Variances are going to happen from the production line to that of what we see on the prototype. All in all…there is too much bitching and complaining going on over STUPID shit. Enjoy my review:
Oh boy, X-Plus is running out of the gate for 2017 already! X-Plus is set up at the Tokyo Comic Con and they have teased a new Toho 30cm Series Burning Godzilla, a 25cm Toho Large Monster Series Keizer Ghidorah and Titanosaurs. In addition to these new figures, a 25cm Large Monster Series Shin Godzilla is on display as well. It looks like this is either a frozen Shin Godzilla or just an unpainted prototype.
The Toho 30cm Series Burning Godzilla should be a FULL SIZE 30cm figure. The RIC Exclusive version has not been revealed at this time but it appears from the placard that the standard version will be ¥22,680/$198 and the proposed RIC will be ¥24,840/$217. When I was in Japan with fellow collectors Kyle, David, Jon and Dell, a year ago at the time of this writing, we saw what appeared to be a prototype 30cm Godzilla 95. I have to go back and look at my pictures from the X-Plus HQ, but the official 30cm Godzilla 1995 pictured here to what I saw appears to be different. Also take note, this will now be the third Burning Godzilla, not including the SDCC or the Freezing GBG, to have come out from X-Plus. We have the original Gigantic Burning Godzilla and the 25cm Burning Godzilla. I can tell you from these early prototype photos of this new 30cm BG, the detail looks way better than the 25cm’s detail. The 25cm Burning Godzilla had somewhat of a lackluster detail and paint job on the face while trying to cover the vinyl to prevent bleed through for the RIC version. Here is to hoping this 30cm version of Burning Godzilla is a home run! Release should be first quarter of 2017.
For the first time in X-Plus vinyl form, from Godzilla Final Wars, Keizer Ghidorah will be released in the 25cm Toho Large Monster Series line. The proposed standard price will be ¥22,680/$198 and the proposed RIC Exclusive is ¥24,840/$217. Not much of a big difference between the proposed standard and RIC price. One thing is for sure, Keizer Ghidorah will be a pretty big 25cm figure! Release should be first quarter of 2017!
Now the 25cm Godzilla 1975 and 25cm MechaGodzilla 1975 will have the final piece to complete the line up with a 25cm Titanosaurus! The proposed standard price will be ¥14,580/$127 and the proposed RIC Exclusive is ¥15,012/$131. Hmm…that does not sound right based off what is on the placard. $3 difference from the standard to the RIC. I cannot translate what is on the placard so we will have to wait for further info from another source for the time being. Most of us avid X-Plus collectors already have a 30cm Titanosaurus. Will you be jumping into the 25cm version?! Release should be first quarter of 2017!
Here is the 25cm Shin Godzilla. The Shin Godzilla in the picture appears to be a prototype,…or is it? This kind of looks like a frozen form of Godzilla from the end of Shin Godzilla once the blood coagulate kicked in, freezing Godzilla’s blood and rendering him frozen in place. Or, this is just an unpainted vinyl prototype made of dark vinyl awaiting the red highlights. The placard states releases dates for December 2016 and January 2017 to coincide with the releases dates for the first and second batches. Yes, there are two batches of the standard 25cm being released because the demand was so high for this figure. Is it just a unpainted prototype or a Frozen form Shin Godzilla?! You tell me!
2017 is starting off hot! I can’t fathom these orders right now at the time of this writing. Get your wallets ready people. Diamond is still releasing their reissues and we also have a new Sakai G92 on the way along with a new repainted RIC Gigan 2004. X-Plus teased a MechaGodzilla 93 a few months ago, so, our plates are full. That is all I have for now! Save up your pennies so you can buy vinyl, fresh vinyl! BAM!
