Found another youtube review (Leslie Chambers) of the Xplus 25cm King Ghidorah:




And he also reviews of the Xplus USA King Ghidorah resin statue, one that I'm not all that familiar with and I haven't seen it mentioned much on these boards:




And finally, a review from Samson West for an oldie, but goodie...the 1984 Bandai 8 inch King Ghidorah figure:

I especially like the funky retro look of some of the older toys, not many better than this old skool figure!

And here are a few more figures with even more stylized looks.

Nope, had to sell it due to its big size, too big for the new place.
Here it is in the center of my old display.

The gold Pilot Ace KG was on my most wanted list until Gigabrain came out with theirs. Great figure though. I even once came across the infamous rare "Blue" variant a few years in Tokyo, and it was crazy expensive...

Damn Leumanes, that is one impressive King Ghidorah collection, especially all of the Gigabrain variants and that Gold Pilot Ace figure.

You up for doing spotlight #22 in a few weeks after AWMGodzilla62 finishes the next one?
