Kaiyodo is releasing the Character Classics Ultraman B Type X-TREME Complete Figure, the larger and more detailed version from the Character Classics line. Check out the details and pics below.
This is the ultimate item for "Ultraman" collectors! Sculpted by Takashi Kinoshita, this display piece of Ultraman B-Type preparing to unleash the Specium Ray is a truly impressive 43cm tall! The eyes are carefully detailed to resemble those of the actual suit as closely as possible (you can even see the peephole through which the actor could see), and the texture of the suit and the shape of the actor's body beneath the suit are painstakingly reproduced. The color timer lights up with LEDs, too, and it can be switched from flashing red to blue burning steadily.
Price: 105,840 yen (approx $930 US).
Pre-order now at a number of retailers, with release scheduled for Dec 2018.
