A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE
In December 2013, the Japanese toy company X-Plus Co., Ltd. debuted their new colossal painted soft vinyl figure line, the “Gigantic Series”, with Godzilla 2001 from the movie GODZILLA, MOTHRA, KING GHIDORAH: GIANT MONSTERS ALL-OUT ATTACK (ゴジラ・モスラ・キングギドラ 大怪獣総攻撃, Gojira Mosura Kingu Gidora: Daikaijuu Sookoogeki). Standing 37.5cm tall and with a length of 78cm, the Gigantic Series: Godzilla (2001 Edition) dwarfed X-Plus’ previous Godzilla figures.
Now X-Plus goes even bigger with the second figure in the Gigantic Series: Godzilla (1995 Edition). Based on the “Burning Godzilla” design from GODZILLA VS DESTOROYAH (ゴジラvsデストロイア, Gojira Tai Desutoroia, 1995), the figure measures an incredible 48cm tall by 87.5cm long. The following product specs and high-res photos are courtesy of X-Plus.
X-Plus’ monster figures can be purchased directly from the company’s official Shounen Ric website. Shounen Ric offers Limited Editions of the figures with exclusive features or bonus pieces not available from other retailers.

Based on an original garage kit by Oyama Ryu from Winter Wonder Festival 2010, the Gigantic Series: Godzilla 1995 reproduces Oyama’s sculpt in soft vinyl. Portions of the figure’s chest, abdomen, legs and arms are molded in clear plastic to simulate Godzilla’s boiling red internal temperatures as the monster approaches a nuclear meltdown.
The Shounen Ric website Limited Edition Gigantic Series: Godzilla 1995 comes with a bonus GODZILLA VS DESTOROYAH Oxygen Destroyer nameplate not available from retailers. The Oxygen Destroyer is cast from the same mold used for the Toho 30cm Series: Godzilla 1954 Shounen Ric Limited Edition (東宝30cmシリーズ 「ゴジラ1954」 少年リック限定商品) bonus released in December 2011.
