Seismic Toys is producing a limited quantity of a special edition Sevenger soft vinyl figure as the next entry in the Ultraman Vinyl Odyssey line, and they’ve given a first look at future figures.
Last year, independent toy maker Seismic Toys and Tsuburaya Productions launched the “Ultraman Vinyl Odyssey” line of high quality soft vinyl figures. This year, Seismic Toys is celebrating Ultraman Day by announcing Ultraman Z‘s Sevenger joining the lineup with “Sevenger: Ultraman 55th Anniversary Edition.”
This Sevenger stands at 9 inches tall with 11 points of articulation and a second pair of swappable eyes so Sevenger can switch from a sad to angry appearance. The figure is cast in premium red glitter vinyl with a metallic finish with a color palette that evokes the original Ultraman’s aesthetic including the Color Timer.
Sevenger is sculpted by Mike Lambert with header card art by DJ Crumrine. Each figure will come packed with a header card and a randomly packed Sevenger trading card. The trading card is a new inclusion for Ultraman Vinyl Odyssey. Seismic Chief Creative Officer Alex Rushdy provided the following comments on the release:
“Sevenger represents a new step forward for us. It’s our most fully-featured toy yet, and we’re incredibly proud of how he turned out. To be able to celebrate the Sevenger character with a colorway celebrating the entire Ultraman series is something we are really excited about.”
Sevenger is available for pre-order from today until the end of August on the official Seismic Toys website for $200, excluding shipping. It’s expected to ship by the end of 2022, and only 250 units are being produced so the sale is very limited. According to the press release, pre-orders can also be placed at “some of your favorite soft vinyl toy retailers.”
Seismic Toys is also previewing the next two upcoming Ultraman Vinyl Odyssey figures: Ultraman Tiga Multi Type form and Ultraman’s first nemesis, Bemular. Ultraman Tiga Multi Type, sculpted by Mike Lambert, will be released in 2023. Bemular is designed by John Bellotti Jr of Robo7 and sculpted by Chris Hillseth of Last Bastion Studios, but its release window has yet to be announced.
