Now available from Bluefin and Tamashii Nations is the S.H. Figuarts Ultraman A-Type Figure. This version of Ultraman is based on the original suit, which appeared in the first 13 episodes of the original 1966 television series. In the series, a member of the Science Patrol is given the extraordinary ability to grow to a massive hero, so he can protect Earth from the giant monsters attacking it. The original suit, before being refined, was more asymmetrical, and featured much more texture. Bandai looked to capture that style here for the special release. Ultraman includes multiple sets of interchangeable hands, swap out blue and red color timers and a right hand with a Specium Beam effect.
Bluefin sent over the figure for us to check out. After the jump you can find my photos and thoughts on the figure.
