For the first time ever the original giant hero makes his appearance in the S.H. Figuarts line! After years of steady Ultra-Act releases that line has now been retired with it’s characters having been folded into S.H. Figuarts beginning with this release, S.H. Figuarts Ultraman 50th Anniversary Edition!
Celebrating 50 years of the Ultraman franchise, which began in earnest in 1966, this new release seeks to improve upon past flaws and open a new chapter for Ultraman figures. And does it live up to it’s expectations? Well that depends on your point of view. This figure seeks to replicate almost perfectly the design of the Ultraman suit. It’s nature as a poseable toy sort of comes second. But it’s undeniably a well made figure that should include more than enough accessories to make up for any issues you might take with it’s design. Such as the famous Baltan Ship, or the Tamashii Action Option Building sets.
