The Japanese superhero kaiju film “Shin Ultraman” has been released in Japan on May 13, 2022, and Prime 1 Studio recently also brought a Shin Ultraman statue to take advantage of this trend. Its alien-like physique is quite interesting, let’s take a look!
Ultraman series has been a long ongoing fantasy by the Tsuburaya Productions ever since 1966. Ultraman’s only motive was fighting with the alien invaders to keep his reputation by fighting off evil. He is the fictional superhero who fights against uranium-eating kaiju (sinister monsters) and the never-ending threats against Earth.
This Shin Ultraman statue adopts the non-scale. Its overall height is 57cm, approx. 22 inches and the total weight reaches 10.1kg.
And it belongs to the Ultimate Premium Masterline Series of Prime 1 Studio.
Meanwhile, its sculpted appearance is designed based on the original artwork for Ultraman by Tohl Narita.
This statue shows the posture of the Shin Ultraman standing on the base and facing forward, with the Kaiju Gabora stepped on by him. This scene shows that Shin Ultraman is ending a battle and victory.
In terms of appearance, the slender figure of Shin Ultraman in the movie is faithfully reproduced. According to the official introduction, this Shin Ultraman statue shows a leaner physique like an alien.
Made out of sleek and bold red linings over his body, Shin Ultraman can be seen with his iconic scarlet and silver color suit that fits perfectly over his giant body.
It is worth mentioning that the familiar “Color Timer” on Ultraman’s chest has been removed, which fully conforms to the settings in the movie.
You can also see his hands formed into a fist as the muscles of his arms can also be seen entirely on display as if the original hand was attached instead of the sculptor.
It reflects that the silver paint finish is very good, and then from the dust stains on the back of his feet, it can be seen that the surface has also been treated with weathering effect, and the sense of reality has been improved.
From the back, Shin Ultraman’s muscle lines depicted are really amazing, and the streamlined muscles look particularly comfortable.
The sleek material of the silver helmet of Shin Ultraman is also sculpted realistically as the shine over the helmet along with his bright eyes can be seen as perfectly sculpted. Also, keep your hopes up for the most pragmatic eyes of Shin Ultraman, as they can be illuminated with the help of the LED lighting installed in them.
At the same time, the familiar eye hole “tear ducts” are also canceled, returning the Shin Ultraman’s design to its roots from the original painting.
The base part is a major highlight of this statue, and it is designed from the Shin Ultraman combat theme as a whole.
It can be seen that the base is designed as a countryside quarry scene. In addition to the sand and stones, there are many rich details, and the most important thing is the mutilated body of the Kaiju Gabora.
Although it is a mutilated body, Kaiju Gabora’s body structure is still very accurate.
Looking at it up close, the details of the monster’s head are very delicate, and even the structure of its mouth is reflected. At the same time, the surface of the head also has a fine paint application.
And you also can see the details of shipping containers and a warehouse dock are depicted on the base.
If you pre-order this Shin Ultraman statue in advance, you will also get a cool Bonus Part: an SSSP Shin Ultraman Title Plaque!
The red background with the white scribbling over it is the perfect title plaque you can attach with the statue to represent the owner of the victory in the battle. After adding this Shin Ultraman title plaque, the overall display effect is slightly improved.
The Ultraman series, featuring one of the most famous fictional superheroes, has been carved into a statue so that fans like you can experience the realistic version of such a character sitting in your room. You wouldn’t want to miss out on such an opportunity to grab hold of a magnificent statue of Shin Ultraman.
