Call me a wet blanket, but I think the gigantic brown smear on the X-Plus LegendaryGoji's muzzle makes the figure look really ugly.

Kaijunator wrote:Most major toy companies have made a figure of Godzilla (2014). Which one did you like the most. For me, it's the X-Plus 30cm one. I'm just going to do a short review of this.

Sculpt: The X-Plus 30cm Godzilla (2014) has a superb sculpt. I have seen the film about eight times and this sculpt is just like the film. 10/10.

Detail: X-Plus did a SPECTACULAR job with detail. They got every little scale done right. Heck, they even did indivually sculpted teeth that look great. 10/10

Paint: Once again, X-Plus does an amazing job. The yellow on the chest was on a maquette. 10/10

Size: Godzilla is (All this info is from Kaiju Addicts) 12.75 inches tall at the head, 14.5 at the tail, 8 inches wide from foot to foot, and 17.5 inches long. Godzilla weighs two pounds and four ounces.

Accessories: If you ordered the standard, then none. However, if you ordered the Ric like me and Jomei, you get a male MUTO. The MUTO is sadly out of scale, as he comes up to Godzilla's knee, and the male's height is 60 meters. So he should be up to maybe Goji's waist. Aside from that, the male is sweet. His wingspan is 35cm. However, the male's paint is my biggest gripe. It's not film-accurate. In the film, he's got some white on him. On the X-Plus, only the teeth are white. I also wish the male had two points of articulation in his two front legs. Though the sculpt and detail is film accurate. The MUTO's wings feel rough. 9/10

Final Thoughts: The X-Plus 30cm Godzilla (2014) is a must have. The paint, detail, and sculpt are just amazing. This is one of the largest 30cm Godzillas in the X-Plus line. The Ric Boy exclusive comes with a male MUTO. The paint is NOT film accurate. However, the Godzilla by itself makes me give the figure a perfect score of 10/10.


That Xplus is gorgeous. The Neca 24" is nice but the sculpting is a bit wonky due to the articulation. The Jakks is pretty cool due to the shear size of the thing and the face sculpt is nice but the body detail isn't the greatest. The Xplus is far and away the best G14 figure available but I do have a soft spot for the standard BC vinyl.

It's their subtle way of letting us know what they think of the new Godzilla.

I am highly interested in the new statue if it comes in under $300 it's definitely a consideration for purchase, anything over that and I probably won't be able to manage, I do like it all around better than the maquette though.

I'm late to the party, I know; but here's my full 2014 collection, as of today:

Fully sized photos here.
I'm pretty satisfied with the collection as is, now (I'd like to get NECA's 24'' still, but I don't expect to find it within my price range). All of these figures are great, and I highly recommend them all to anyone who hasn't obtained them yet.

I really wish the Chibis had been more widespread at retail, I'd like to have them but not at the cost of shipping.

Still want the JAKKS at some point.

I've seen the Jakks selling for $45 dollars at stores around me - and if you have an Amazon account, both chibi sets are available for good prices (just add them to a big enough purchase to warrant free shipping.)

Seems awfully expensive for something so inaccurate. It's still a really cool statue, though.

The price is in no way more than I expected, as Sideshow Collectibles has ALWAYS been very high-end.

Yeah, as much as it's a sting the wallet, it's pretty much in line with Sideshow's long standing pricing. This is basically the size of their Knifehead and only $20 more and it's likely a costlier license and price of goods in general is higher than when Knifehead came out.

I feel like recently they have gotten to be a higher price with much lower quality. You can especially tell with how lazy they have seem to have gotten with the paint. If you look at the recently released Big Chap and Alien warrior legendary scale busts, they have had alot of issues with paint and breakage which shouldn't happen for the price they are sold for. But if you look at the old Big Chap maquette it looks absolutely stunning at around 800$ when it came out which is under twice of what the big chap lsb cost, and the big chap maquette was huge.
