Ooooooh man!!!!!! News and pictures have lit the internet and Facebook up like a wildfire from Winter Wonder Festival in Chiba, Japan!! Thanks to members of the KaijuSinkhole group on Facebook for posting the photo’s!! Ok, enough…SHUT UP and look at the pictures!
X-Plus has brought the big guns to Winter Wonder Festival 2015!!! On the X-Plus table is, yes, your eyes do not deceive you, the 25cm Toho Large Monster Series Biollante! X-Plus collectors have been scratching and clawing for a reissue of this she-beast and it looks like it is happening. For this go around, it appears Biollante is a RIC Boy Exclusive with light up features in the stomach, much like the S.H. Monster Arts Biollante. Also appearing on the table is a 25cm T.L.M.S. (Toho Large Monster Series) Godzilla 1989 and like Biollante, this appears it will be a RIC Boy Exclusive as well, with light up dorsal plates.
What does RIC Boy Exclusive mean? It means X-Plus will only be reissuing these from their site only. There will be no standard release of these figures. Hobby Search, Amiami or any other retail outlet will not receive these figures. If you have your sources, you better get on the list now. It also looks like both Biollante and Godzilla ’89 will be paired and boxed together. I am only speculating that because the placard for these two beasts states “Godzilla 1989 & Biollante”. We shall see soon!
Another big announcement comes in the form of the next Yuji Sakai X-Plus release! It is this Ghido-Goji, Godzilla 1991, from the 1991 film Godzilla Vs. King Ghidorah! FRESH! I have been saying for a while now that X-Plus was not done with Yuji Sakai and I have said there was no way only one Yuji Sakai figure would have been released! So here it is! BAM! This I would imagine we will see VERY SOON! Keep your eyes peeled!
Also on the X-Plus table is the highly anticipated and often teased Mothra 1964 along with the Godzilla 1964, both in the T.L.M.S. Godzilla ’64 was teased in the fall of 2014 from X-Plus but it dropped off the radar for sometime until it reappeared early in 2015. Mothra ’64 is looking fabulous! A new base has been sculpted with an accompanying Mothra egg! I have never been this excited about an egg before but holy $#!% that egg looks great! More importantly, Mothra looks great! A whole FRESH sculpt of the Mothra ’64 head has made for this release. The wings and the rest of the body look the same for the most part. This is a definite grab for me!!! Can’t wait!
The Real Master Collection Plus Gamera 1999 appears as well. Under demonstration at the table, Gamera is shown with the light up plasma fist illuminated and then demonstrated how to remove the arm and turn on the light.
Wow! Lots of reissues this year so far but this is what fans have been asking for. 2015 is looking like its going to be an expensive year for collectors so you better start saving your pennies now! Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available!!

Amiami has opened preorders for the X-Plus 25cm King Ghidorah! King Ghidorah is listed at $305 with the 15% discount Amiami is offering. King Ghidorah is scheduled to be released late December 2014 which means we will not see KG at our door steps until early January 2015! Save your pennies and get preordering!
