Everyone knows these are wanted and/or have been unofficially announced by X-Plus. In the case of the Kong’s, X-Plus has stated they’re pursuing licensing. *fingers crossed it comes to pass*

1. Battra


2. Destroyah


3. Gabara


4. Guiron


5. Gyaos


6. Kamakiras


7. Megaguirus


8. Orga


9. Space Godzilla


10. Viras

I'd buy an X-Plus Burning/Meltdown Godzilla without question.
Out of the list above though, I voted for SpaceGodzilla. I'd honestly like to see him get an X-Plus figure of him made.

I think X-Plus is working on trying to get the licensing for Kong and Mechani-Kong, so those are certainly possible. I REALLY want a Mechani-Kong. I love that guy. I might buy a Burning or Meltdown Godzilla, just depends on how cool it looks. I'm set with regards to my Gs. I just wish they would focus on completing the Showa line in 30cm. That would make me happy. :)

I just don't care to see any more Godzillas. I have Godzys coming out of my ears. I'm hoping that they pull something obscure out of their butt, something that's truly under-represented in the realm of realistic figures. I'm not expecting anything as awe-inspiring as my beloved Biollante, but Megaguirus, Orga, Kamakiras, I'd be all over those in a heartbeat.

Yeah, Mechagodzilla 2 from Terror Of Mechagodzilla, that one gets my vote.

Ghidorah as well, of course.

Also, a 1974 impostor Godzilla with the missing chunk of skin revealing the Mecha underneath. And make it with a closed mouth. I would buy that one for sure. It would kill two birds with one stone for me.

To Brad Simmons : in your astute list above of x-plus releases,in the 25cm line you listed a "'62 Godzilla from (Godzilla vs.mothra) internet exclusive w/light up fins". Did I miss a mosugoji with light up fins somewhere along the line? & '62 mosugoji ? Or did you just make a typeO?


I'm with you masonwerx on the MG2 w/robot brain. I think that'll be a given in a internet exclusive. I'm going to stick with my fantasy MG1 where his upper half is exposed space titanium as usual, but from the waist down still covered in faux Godzilla skin. To give the appearance of transformation between fake Godzilla to MechaGodzilla. That's the ticket man,it's never been done.

Sorry. That was a typo (corrected). Here's a link to the figure...

Ya,I thought so. I'm glad it was though. I didn't want to have to smack myself upside the head for letting something that cool get by me.

The 25cm Rodan '64 may be my last X-Plus figure till sometime after August of next year. I need to temporarily stop collecting because I'll be moving off Guam next May or June, and I don't want to keep buying and buying all the way to the time I pack out.
Once I get settled in my new home, and start working full time, I should be purchasing X-Plus figures much more regularly. However, I think I am gonna stick with the 25cm line from then on. I'll only buy figures in the 30cm series if I like the sculpt enough.

It looks pretty good but I still prefer the 30 cm one even though it has such bad balance issues.

The Mothra looks ok. I was expecting it to have a bit more paint detail.

As I said at the X-Plus Kaiju Vinyl Series group on Facebook, I was really contemplating whether to stick with this figure or cancel my order, but after seeing the painted images, I was convinced to keep with it! I'll just have to hold off on the S.H.MonsterArts Destoroyah for a little while until my funds recover. Hopefully I can replenish my collecting budget in time though. XD

I was planning on picking up the exclusive w/larva, but the larva looks like one of the baby larva that came with the 64 exclusive, just a little lighter in color. I'm beginning to think its too small in scale. I think the first release Bandai might be a better match. In this case, without the tag.

Isn't this version of the Mothra larva supposed to fit on Rodan's back, like in the movie Ghidorah?
