Shinjiro Hayata, the eponymous hero from Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi’s ULTRAMAN, is the latest statue from Gecco Corp.
The 1/6 scale statue stands at 33cm tall, is made out of ABS/PVC material, and comes prepainted by Kenji Ando, the designer and a sculptor of the Super Imaginative Chogokin figurines.
The main sculpt is by Shinya Akao and HEADLONG, and the alternate, maskless, head is sculpted by Natsuho Miyata.
The statue comes out May, 2016 for 36,800 yen.
From the official press release:
The hero of the SF comic “ULTRAMAN,” Shinjiro Hayata, is recreated as a highly detailed 1/6 scale statue, capturing the crisp metallic detail of his iconic suit. The sculpt features both the color timer on the chest and eyes glowing with LED. The arms are interchangeable with the Spacium Blade.
The ULTRAMAN head is also interchangeable with the Shinjiro head, and the statue can be displayed unmasked, holding the mask in his left hand, which creates a totally different atmosphere.
The sculpting and painting technique captures both the hard and soft material of the suit and is another wonderful highlight. This is the ultimate ULTRAMAN statue thoroughly supervised by the original writer/artist Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi.
