Eleven Seconds of Ultraman (Hayata) Perfection

So, if you have approximately eleven seconds to spare and the first Ultraman is your jam, then have I got a clip for you to watch! This takes the original and recreates him into more than some undisciplined brawler. The concise economy of motion-based moves are DOPELY dynamic! While watching the latest Ultraman: Ultra Galaxy Fight episode, this stood out to me, and I knew that I HAD to share it. Also, I was today years old when I discovered that YouTube had the ability to share clips in this manner. What a neat little tool. Now if I could make this clip into an animated GIF, I would be an Ultra-Happy camper. SHUWACH!

My Ultraman Sofubi Collection

Have I mentioned that I love Ultraman to you yet?

I am only missing Leo and Astra. Astra is on his way to me from Japan now, along with eleven others that I’ll be reselling. I may get into the post 80 Ultras as well… time shall tell.Β My strategy is to purchase in bulk, keep what I want, and sell the rest for a profit or at least to break even. It’s how I can afford to collect and makes for a fun hobby. Many times, the sofubi I get just need some TLC, and that alone improves the items I receive.

γ‚·γƒ₯ワッチ! They Came From Nebula M78: My Ultraman-centric Tumblr

If, like me, you are an Ultraman fan please consider checking out my new Tumblr… They Came From Nebula M78! Way back in the early days of the Internet, I taught myself web design with my first love as my subject… Ultraman. I was born into an area that was airing the original 1966 episodes in syndication, and I knew that this was my hero. While I have not had a focused subject blog, or website in over a decade, Ultraman is my happy place and this outlet isn’t for anything but sharing Ultra and random Tokusatsu stuff, with some giant super robot tossed in every now and then for good measure. shuwatchi.tumblr.com

Dear Santa: Ultraman One:12 Collective Action Figure

Out of all the neat things I’ve shared on this site, the One12 Mezco Ultraman is probably one the few things that I would actually have room for let alone highly desire. It is just very cool all around. I think I see if there is an actual review of an in-hand figure out there, and perhaps I’ll save my Β₯en up for one.


Hailing all the way from Nebula M78, Ultraman joins the One:12 Collective!

Ultraman is outfitted in a combat suit powered by his Ultraman Factor and features a light-up Color Timer on his chest. He comes with two light-up head portraits including a Fluoroscope Ray portrait, known for de-cloaking and destroying!

Ultraman comes complete with a range of attack FX including a Specium Ray hand FX, an Ultra Slash FX, and an Ultra Attack Ray FX which fits over his arm. The Jet VTOL, the main vehicle of Science Special Search-Party, is also included and can be held by Ultraman.

Recreate a multitude of fight scenes with the scaled breakaway buildings that can be disassembled to look like they’ve been destroyed during battle! Three million lightyears away from Earth lies Nebula M78, home world of most Ultras. Ultras are powerful silver beings from the Land of Light. Incredibly strong due to their bodies generating natural steroids, Ultras are also able to change their size at will and fire energy beams from their hands.
