Gecco Corp (www.gecco.co.jp / Facebook) announces "ULTRAMAN" as recreated into "a highly detailed 1/6 scale statue" - with this being the "rebooted" mecha-armor version seen in the manga! Dude, I LOVE this design! … and the toy action figure was hella expensive here tho… :(
Available for release in May 2016, with a SRP of 36,800 yen. Standing 33cm tall, this pre-painted statue is made with ABS/PVC, and features sculpt by Shinya Akao / HEADLONG, with "Shinjiro" Head sculpted by Natsuho Miyata. Paint is by Kenji Ando.
Head on over HERE on Facebook for more images, and as well scroll down for the press write-up.
"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."
