Gecco Corp has announced that Ultraman, the popular Japanese hero, will be getting an incredibly realistic 1/6 scale statue. It will release in May of this year. Here are some details via the press release:
“The hero of the SF comic “ULTRAMAN,” Shinjiro Hayata, is recreated as a highly detailed 1/6 scale statue, capturing the crisp metallic detail of his iconic suit. The sculpt features both the color timer on the chest and eyes glowing with LED. The arms are interchangeable with the Spacium Blade. The ULTRAMAN head is also interchangeable with the Shinjiro head, and the statue can be displayed unmasked, holding the mask in his left hand, which creates a totally different atmosphere.The sculpting and painting technique captures both the hard and soft material of the suit and is another wonderful highlight. This is the ultimate ULTRAMAN statue thoroughly supervised by the original writer/artist Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi.”
