“I am Orb! I light the darkness and strike at evil!”
After a teasing reveal last month Bandai Tamashii Nations have now updated their website with images of the forthcoming S.H. Figuarts Ultraman Orb Origin and Ultraman Orb Origin The First figures! The first modern Ultra hero to join the S.H. Figuarts line, these figures are based on the hero’s ‘true’ appearance in both Ultraman Orb and the Amazon Prime-exclusive Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga prequel series.
A mass release figure due for release in August, Ultraman Orb comes with the Orb Calibur weapon, a replacement colour timer and a number of alternate hands. Meanwhile Orb Origin The First will also be arriving that month, but will be sold exclusively through Amazon.co.jp. He comes with replacement hands, colour timer and a number of attack effect parts. Both figures cost 5940 yen each.
Preorders for Ultraman Orb Origin are scheduled to open on April 3rd, with Origin The First presumably the same day or shortly afterward.
As a further tease Tamashii Nations have also confirmed a third figure in the Ultraman Orb lineup, however it’s identity is currently unknown.
