Ultraman is another piece of childhood I need to have on my shelf
As a kid in the early 90’s Ultraman was a favorite tv show of mine, I couldn’t remember which Ultraman version did I watched back then as there are so many variations. But this Ultraman type A is closer to what I can remember.
I learned that this variant is the very first one to ever come out on Japanese Television during the 1960’s, and I think re-runs where televised in the Philippines during the 1990s, no wonder why this is the variant that I remember and was my childhood hero, aside from Ultraman Jack and the Ultraman Tiga, I didn’t really care much about the more recent Ultraman variants since moving on from childhood.
But then nostalgia is like a drug that keeps you sane and stress-free from the hurdles of adulthood, remembering what makes you happy in the past gives you a kind of comfort that you can’t easily get from any of today’s media, without these old things from your past you feel somewhat empty inside. So now the SHFiguarts Ultraman Type A will fill that void for me.
Let’s see what we have inside the box

I couldn’t stress how much I am amazed with these SHFiguarts action figures, they are so detailed and realistic especially when you pose them like the real characters do in their shows. As for this Ultraman, he is a very well done action figure, the accurate representation of the head from the very first episode of the show is really a marvel, even the eye hole (yeah those black dots right under both eyes) is in there making a lasting impression of the real Ultraman as seen on TV. The pose-ability is top notch, every pose looks like a real human wearing a silver suit.
As the for the scale, I don’t think it is on an N-Scale or 1:150 to make it look as if its in the same plateau with 1:144 Gundam models, but it close enough I guess. You could still put N-Scale buildings props in front or as background to this guy and he will still look gigantic as intended.
Let’s see this Ultraman figure in action

- Ultra ray on another angle
- Ultra ray to finish down Antlar
- Ultra ray on another angle
I was able to get some Kaiju monsters during a visit to a Department Store toy section in a local mall, I thought these monsters are the same scale as the SHFiguart model but I think its close enough, I mean I can recreate the pictures on the product labels of these toy monsters, but I’ll show you that on a separate review.
Clearly, the action scenes look real, I mean just add more diorama props in there, like buildings and stuff and you will get a nice TV show representation photo shoots. I really love taking pictures, I will do more in the future with nice diorama sets in.
