Earlier this month, SciFi Japan posted information and photos of the giant monster figures scheduled for release by X-Plus Co., Ltd. in late November 2013, including the unpainted prototype of Ultraman (A-type). The final design has been approved so X-Plus has now provided photos of the fully painted figure.
X-Plus’ monster figures can be purchased directly from the company’s official Shounen Ric website. Shounen Ric offers Limited Editions of the figures with exclusive features or bonus pieces not available from other retailers.

The original Ultraman returns to the X-Plus lineup with the A-type sculpt, capturing the characteristics of the hero’s mask and suit from the earliest episodes of the ULTRAMAN (ウルトラマン Urutoraman, 1966-67) television series.
The figure includes an extra set of arms to replicate Ultraman’s akimbo (hands on hips) pose. It also comes with a display stand with a feature that illuminates the character’s eyes and allows the color timer to switch from blue to blinking red.
This item is sold exclusively online by Shounen Ric and will not be available from retail stores.
