I have been looking forward to this figure for some time now! This is the Ultra-Act x S.H. Figuarts Ultraman ver. 7.2 figure from Bandai and Tamashii Nations. He is based on his appearance in the Ultraman manga, which is also known as Ultra Seven. The Packaging is similar to what we got with the special version Ultraman with the manga theme packaging which I love!
For the figure itself, when I first got it out of the packaging, I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed. He is a slightly duller figure then the standard Ultraman which through me off a little bit. After combing through the colored pages of the manga, I came to the realization that the coloring for the figure is accurate to the pages seen. So after that, I the paint job more or less works for me now. His articulation is very impressive and I love his accessories. Only thing I am currently weary on is his sheath, which has an arm that attaches to the side of the hip which is very…very thin. It seems like it could easily break with any amount of pressure, so I feel that I will not be using that piece when posing the figure in my display.
Not sure if I will be getting around to reviewing him soon with the housing situation and other figures that have to take priority when they arrive. Though I will say as of now I am very pleased with the figure as of right now. So if you were thinking of hoping on this figure or on the fence, I’d say go for it!
