Takkong (from Utlraman), Popy, Japan,
2003 reissue

Cool header card !

Pure vinyl bliss !

Ultraman was not a show that aired on French TV, so I have to admit it is not one of the things I grew up with as a child. But if there is one hero that is more popular in Japan than in the rest of the world, this is it !
Some collectors are only specialized in him - and have thousands of pieces in their collection. The number of monsters Ultraman had to fight is staggering - and this is one of them.

Special effects meant lots of explosions (T-Birds style) and a man in a rubber suit (Godzilla style).
