well, this is weird.
my oil plug seemed "loose" (and leaked slightly) so I bought a new one, some new gaskets, and an oversize plug (in case the threads were stripped) from Toyota dealer.
Changing the oil today -
1. the "new" plug fit looser than the original.
2. I cleaned the "original" plug and found some "shavings" in the threads.
3. the oversize plug seems too big and appeared to begin to strip its' own threads when I tried to put it in. I decided not to force it.
So now, my car sits with no oil in it, and no plug..........
Any ideas?

Re-thread it with a bigger opening and get an even bigger plug, or a new olipan..
that's my guess 4 the day..

How much bigger was new plug ?
Find out , and buy a tap to suit.

The "oversize" plug is tapered and slotted to essentially "fit" and sort of tap a smaller opening. I probably will have to find a standard larger plug and tap it like you say...
:(
