X-Plus Gigantic Series Yuji Sakai Godzilla 1999 and Large Monsters Series Legion

Summer Wonderfest 2015 is underway in Japan right now, and the guys at X-Plus have unveiled a couple of nifty figures for us Kaiju collectors!

First is the next addition to the Yuji Sakai Modeling Collection, Godzilla 1999. Unlike the first two additions to the line, Godzilla 1999 will be released in the Gigantic Series as opposed to the Toho 30cm Series due to the design being based on Shinji Nishikawa's early, and quite popular, concept design for the creature for Godzilla 2000: Millennium. It's expected to be around 400mm tall (40cm or 15in,) and will be released sometime towards late September. No price has been announced yet. It's worthy to note that the figure displayed at X-Plus' booth has brightly colored orange spines while the one at Yuji Sakai's booth is colored normally. It's speculated that the Gigantic Sakai Godzilla 1999 with the orange spines will be the RIC Boy exclusive. More on that when details become available. 

Secondly is the utterly massive Large Monsters Series Legion in all her glory! Compared to the Large Monsters Series Gamera 1996, Legion absolutely dwarfs it. Based on the display card next to the figure, Legion is set to release in December, and will be packed with Gamera 1996 as a set for the online RIC Boy exclusive. 

Other than that, the Toho Large Monsters Series Godzilla 1995 was also shown as well. Its release date was recently pushed back to sometime later in August or early September.
