Keizer Ghidorah REVIEW!

Hey guys! I know I don’t update as much as I should nor as mush as I’d like to, but here is my review for the X-Plus 25cm Keizer Ghidorah, from 2004’s Godzilla Final Wars.  Now, I will say, while I am not a big fan (if at all) of GFW or what Toho decided to do with Ghidorah’s design for the film, the figure of Keizer Ghidorah is pretty damn cool. Originally a GOWROW model kit, X-Plus picked this up and released in May 2017 in their 25cm Toho Large Monster Series line.  He is bulky, ugly and without a doubt fresh in my book! Check out my review for all my thoughts!  FRESH!

X-Plus @ Winter WonderFest!

Ok..so..holy shit. X-Plus blew a big load in Tokyo at WF this past weekend. It was a big load..one that you need to change your sheets, that kind of load. Yea, this is not your mom and pop blog here people. Sack up.  X-Plus plans on raping your wallet for 2017 and they showed us exactly what the raping will be.  Here is a list of everything coming to the Godzilla line via 25cm, 30cm and Gigantic Series:

  • 25cm Titanosaurus
  • 25cm Gabara with Minya as the RIC
  • 25cm Keizer Ghidorah (delayed…but coming soon)
  • 25cm Godzilla 2004
  • 25cm Shin Godzilla Form A
  • 30cm Shin Godzilla Form B
  • 30cm Shin Godzilla via Yuji Sakai
  • 30cm GMK King Ghidorah
  • 30cm MechaGodzilla 93 (eventually)
  • 30cm Godzilla 2000 w/ Orange Dorsal Plates
  • Gigantic Series Shin Godzilla

Told yah..they blew a big load! There is also a Sanda and Gaira bust and another crossover piece from Evanglion, a Evanglion stylized Ms. Namikawa in Planet X dress. Meh. Not sure about these last mentioned pieces. X-Plus is still pounding out DBZ, Ultraman and some other stuff but I am just focusing on Toho related Kaiju.  In my last blog, I basically said that 2017 was looking like it was going to be an expensive year and now that WF has concluded, X-Plus has confirmed that it IS going to be an expensive year. Better start saving your pennies. I am. I am also selling off certain figures (NOT ANY X-PLUS) that I can do without from other lines I have collected. Gonna turn old vinyl into new vinyl. Anyway… X-Plus is going hard this year. I am pretty excited. I just hope all these releases are spread out accordingly.

Again, if you are reading this, this is all old news to you. These pictures were provided by Jay Davies who was in attendance at WonderFest in Tokyo.  He is one lucky SOB to see these all up close and personal. I hope to make WonderFest one of these years. But seriously, I have 4 shelves already full of X-Plus. I am pretty tapped on room on those shelves so that means I need to set up another one.  Not a big deal really but DAMN. The GSG (Gigantic Shin Godzilla) is going to be a massive shelf hog with his big ass tail. Just look at the pics below. GSG will command a lot of real estate on your friggin shelves.

I am also really glad to see X-Plus dropping Form A and B. I skipped the SHMA version because I had a vibe X-Plus was going to do their own and I am glad I skipped the SHMA ones. I don’t really care for articulation anyway. Check out the pics below if you have been under a rock the past 24 hours. BAM!

What are your thoughts? Can you swing all these releases? Do you want to get them all? Who is more crazier: us for collecting these all or X-Plus for releasing them all!? LOL

Jet Jaguar Reissue on the way from X-Plus!!

X-Plus is reissuing the 25cm Jet Jaguar!!

IMG_9226

Jet Jaguar is expected to drop at the end of June or early in July this year! The price tag for this is 12,960¥ or $118! Great price right? RIGHT! Better than some of those auctions on eBay or YJ asking for over $500!! The hell with that!!

At this time, it appears this is a RIC only reissue If this is the case, we will not see a standard available on sites like Hobby Search or Amiami. As has been with other re-issue 25cm figures (Godzilla 68, Rodan 64, Anguirus, etc), this will only be able to be purchased through the RIC site.

Jet Jaguar will feature a light up gimmick for the eyes. I’ve been saying the light up gimmick on the X-Plus figures are becoming tiresome but this is a fine example of when it will stand out!

Also, the original RIC Jet Jaguar came with an extra set of arms as the standard figure comes with open hands already set in place. The RIC extra came with extra arms with clinched fists. This new RIC comes with an open left hand and a cliched fist on the right! Mix of both!!

The preorder window is open NOW and it will close on May 24th at 6PM Japan time!

I have the 25cm JJ from the G73/JJ from a few years back but this is a must have for me, easily! Fresh!!
