Our friends at Gecco have sent along an update they wanted us to share. Their Ultraman 1/6 Scale Statue has been approved for sale in the U.S. Fans will be able to grab the statue through their local comic and specialty shops via Diamond Comics Distributors. Previews has posted up their listing. Here’s more info:
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.
