Hello fellow x-plus maniacs.
Names jim,I'm a Scorpio,43, I like long walks on the beach,sunsets,and....oops sorry wrong type of forum. Anyway I've been a life long kaiju fan. My first kaijueiga I remember seeing was either monster zero or voyage into space, can't pin that one down. First G figure I had was the Aurora Godzilla w/glo in the dark fins. My second was bandai G62 back in '84 or '85. My 3rd was the bandai '84 G in 1988.
In '91 I discovered a store called pony toy go around in little Tokyo in LA. The first time I went up that escalator and turned to the right and saw what was undiscribable at the time. Let me just ask,have any of you ever been so excited that you experienced shortness of breath and a instant urge to urinate. Weird I know,but I did. I think I finally found my magic (toho) kingdom. Needless to say I bought every 8"bandai in the godzilla,gamera line. Even a few ultra's also.
A year or so after that I went to a fangoria convention & discovered vinyl model kits. My first one was the billikin G'92. IMO I think its a better sculpt than the newest x-plus '92.
Now that brings me up to my x-plus collection. So glad I found like minded guys and I believe we also have a lady amongst this forum!?,To talk to about of passion for these pieces of art. I look forward to having conversations and sharing our experience in this fantastic hobby. As of now I have in my 25cm x-plus collection:'84G,'64,'67G,'71G,'73g
