“Precious friends, fight together with me!”
7 years after Earth first encountered the giant of light Ultraman, Ultraman Taro arrived! Taking the human Kotaro Higashi as his host, Taro fought against legions of Kaiju as they invaded the Earth. And for years since, Taro has fought hard and earned the respect of his peers. Mentoring new generations of heroes at the Ultra Coliseum, Taro also went on to instruct and guide the likes of Mebius & Ginga. This Master fighter has lived a long and hard fought life, but that didn’t stop him from settling down either. Passing his skills down to yet another generation, Taro instills the hope & power of the land of light in his son, Ultraman Taiga!
Recently we had a chance to review both S.H. Figuarts Ultraman Ginga, and the Ultraman Suit Ver 7 thanks to our good friends at Bluefin Brands. Now they’ve treated us to something a bit more classic with S.H. Figuarts Ultraman Taro! Hailing from the 6th Ultra series which bears his name, many a fan of the New Generation Ultras will recognize Taro from his time mentoring Ginga. This figure will appeal to any fan of the character though. Recereating his timeless appearance and updating his articulation to modern standards, SHF Taro will stand tall with your other heroes. Armed with the mighty Bracelet Lancer, Taro also includes the iconic Storium Ray effect part for all of your Kaiju destroying needs!
