So we've had some shifting in the release dates for a number of upcoming Godzilla products...INCREDIBLE, BUT TRUE! Folks who have been collecting Godzilla Vinyl Wars have been used to Medicom's sporadic, slow output for a couple years now, but with the busy year X-Plus has been having, we've been seeing a lot of their US releases push back as well.
Due on 11/15, we've still got some spaces available for the Sakai'92. He's $215 shipped in the US, $250 shipped overseas.
More than likely shifting to December is the "Powered Up" Gigan'04. He was originally intended for an October US bow, but that ain't happenin'! There's been no up-to-date ETA yet, but our guess is it will likely be our final X-Plus release for the states for 2017. We still got some spaces available for him, $210 Shipped in the US, $245 Shipped overseas...
Clearing to early 2018, for now, are the following...
"Blue Dorsal" Godzilla 2014
Also shifting out of January, and towards March 2018, are the Gorosaurus and King Caeser figures from X-Plus' "Toho Giant Monster Series". You can pre-order them, or any of the other figures in the series, here. The upcoming Gigantics from X-Plus have also shifted to late March 2018 for now. We're only selling those at conventions, or as local pick ups. If you wish to special order any or all three, you can contact us here.
Now we get to Medicom's Godzilla Vinyl Wars lines...I know a lot of people are frustrated (and some relieved) with the constant delays for US releases when it comes to this line. Believe me when I tell you that we are as well. There's several figures in the line which are about a year overdue now. While none of the existing preorders for those have been canceled yet, we've gone ahead and listed them as To Be Determined, or TBD on the pre-order page. With no new release dates issued, and no signs of them getting on a slow boat out of China, there isn't much more we can do. Diamond hasn't canceled them outright yet, so they seem to still be expecting them at some point...
There were two that were expected to arrive this week, but did not. We now have unofficial reason to believe that they will be showing up before year's end.
While still waiting on more official word, rumor has it that these SHOULD arrive stateside before Christmas. It could also be wishful thinking on our part. Preorder spaces for both figures are currently capped. Anyone wishing to get on a waiting list for either or both can contact us here.
And now for the big news on the GVW front! Medicom finally spilled the beans overnight about both of the upcoming Marmit Burning Godzilla figures! The standard size figure is intended to be a Toho Theater exclusive in Japan next month, no doubt to coincide with the theatrical bow of the new anime film GODZILLA MONSTER PLANET. The larger scale Marmit burning godzilla will be a Japanese exclusive to wholesaler "Canyon Crest", bowing around the same time. Vampire Robots is scheduled to get both in January! Preorders are currently capped, but if you're interested in joining the waiting list, you can contact us below.
