The kaiju that killed Ultraman joins ACRO’s KAIJU REMIX SERIES.
ACRO Co., Ltd.’s KAIJU REMIX SERIES of soft vinyl figures takes classic kaiju from the Ultra Series and re-imagines them through the eyes of different artists and filmmakers. The latest addition to the series is Zetton, the kaiju that killed the original Ultraman way back when.
The new Zetton sculpt is by artist Takagi Akinori from Haruki Creation who commented:
My favourite Ultra kaiju since I was born has been Zetton.
The first figure I made, 10 years ago, was my first original arrangement of Zetton.
This time, the concept that ACRO wanted to give to KRS and my Zetton arrangement fit perfectly and we made this product.
As for the highlights, I adapted the silhouette to my taste and gave it a dinosaur element.
I added molding marks on its feet and even a tail. As for the base coloring, I imagined the Science Patrol HQ on fire, so it looks sort of lava-ish. I took special care in approximating the rest of the colouring to the original. I feel very happy that I am able to share with you, after 10 years, my image of Zetton.
KAIJU REMIX SERIES Zetton will retail for ¥ 9,260. The 12in. tall figure comes out this November, and is available for pre-order now.
