I've had some X-plus stuff. I review the 1984 Godzilla they did on my channel. They are the Yamato of Godzilla toys, sacrificing articulation for suit accuracy.

They basically sculpt super realistic vinyls with little to zero articulation. They are hollow inside.

Though they have done some mecha in the past, this will probably be Polyurethane Resin Model like the Gunhead below.

I'd imagine it will be rather pricy...depending on materials, size, and sculptor.

If it's 31 cm that's about the size of the Giant Godzilla line, which is a bit larger than grimlock in dino mode. That's the 84 which is technically 29cm.

But thats height. I imagine the length will be pretty crazy - like 40cm.

This Shoji Kawamori Gunhead was $800-1200 bucks.

If it looks anywhere near as good as this... I might spring for it. I almost got the Burning G which was about $400 bucks MSRP, but is probably selling for $900 now if you didn't PO.

If it's X-plus it will be licenced. They hire top notch guys and go for big projects.

I'm sure the size and materials won't make it a direct competition to Bandai.

Wow! The original 'Monster'! I'm sure that this is licensed since it's using Macross logo on the poster/ flyer. And it has that Big West text underneath the image. Is this going to be somewhere like $300-400 vinyl figure?

It's not Arcadia, so prolly not.

The important MWF question is which shade of green it will be in colored form...

X-plus is an expensive brand. I'm thinking this could be in the 500 range, judging by the size of it. I saw 1/72 Monster up close at this year MW Con - It is BIG!!!

Would it be around this size? This was the one at the MWcon, yes? Chunky Monkey next to it.

If it has movable joints I'd get one but if it's in a fixed pose no ways.

Is this the Yamato 1/60 prototype or a custom? I forgot (old pic).

@wmkjr

i would say yes, it would roughly the same size. Since mslz22 version is 1/72 and the announced product is scaled close to 1/72

the second picture is the 1/60 yamato prototype. At that scale, articulation needs to be crippled to gain stability, unless they use more engineer which would cost more

Wow! I know limited articulation, but if it's even a little posable, I'm sold. 1/72 doesn't bother me in the least, when you get to that size the eyes won't care that it's not in true scale with the other valks, as long as 'huge monster little valkyrie' holds out, that's good enough for me!

I would imagine it will having moving parts.

I'd say, as mentioned before, the main cost determination would be if they use resin. I would assume vinyl is out because you can't get a real sharpness with it.

A vinyl one of that size would be close to 400, with resin probably 600.
