Gee Okamoto, representative from X-Plus HQ, mentioned last year that we would see Pacific Rim figures from X-Plus and now they are ready to roll out the first release. Leatherback is the first release.  The Pacific Rim line is to be in the 25cm scale. This is a big ass 25cm figure that is for sure. No price or release date for this guy as of yes.

From the Toho 30cm Series, MechaGodzilla 1975 will be released at the end of June 2016. The price point is looking to be ¥19,440 which is translated to about $179.  First impression of this figure is beautiful. The wear and tear looks spot on. Lots of wrinkles and nice paint apps.

Up next is the a Gigantic Godzilla 1962 (King-Goji)! This is a new sculpt from Kaibitsuya! The previous releases in the Gigantic line were stylized where this new Godzilla is quite suit accurate. I love it. While I was in Japan in December 2015 I had the privilege of seeing this figure in clay form still being sculpted. This is a BIG figure. No release date or price set yet but I am going to guess this is going to be over $300 before shipping. Can’t wait for this!

Last week X-Plus announced via the RIC site a Toho 30cm Series Battra larve! This is a reproduction of the Gow Row kit that came out a few years ago. The RIC exclusive for this release will be light up eyes and horn. This is expected to release at the end of May 2016 with a price point of ¥19,980 or about $183.

We have a hot summer ahead of us from X-Plus. This news also comes on the heels of the Blue Fin announcement that they will be distributing a 25cm King Ghidorah and a 25cm Biollante!! Check out the news for those figures at Kaiju Addicts here!

Start saving your pennies guys! New FRESH VINYL is a coming!!

One thought on “New X-Plus Announcements!

  1. The two stand outs for me here are the Battra Larva and the Gigantic 1962. The pictures of the Battra gives me the feeling this may be the best paint job on an X-plus figure yet. So much detail on the claws/toenails on Battra’s underside. And the Gigantic 1962 is basically my dream figure. A suit accurate figure of that size of my favorite suit the 1962 King Goji!!! I am losing my mind in anticipation for the final pictures of it painted. Any guess about what the RIC feature may be? Or what you like it to be?
