^Man, I don't know! Falls outside of my area of expertise, but I do know that plenty of Indian movies have feature Hanuman in some capacity.

Good, perhaps now they can finally release the CBS dub of ULTRA-Q and the Cinar dub of ULTRA SEVEN on home video. :D

I can sympathize with Hideaki Tsuburaya at least a little bit - the toy gimmicks have been consistently hokey and sometimes totally distracting in the recent shows - but we've gotten some quality stories/episodes from these series regardless; and when the shows have really stumbled, I think it has everything to do with simply shoddy writing, rather than a forced toy gimmick.
Still, I'd be happy to see the franchise expand beyond that format once again. I'd also really like their other, already existing programs such as Bio Planet Woo and Neo Ultra Q to become accessible for US fans.

I would *think* that this decision DOES pave the way for Tsuburaya to start bringing back the Ultraman I.P. back to North America.

I've been tweeting both Hasbro and Neca Toys to contact Tsuburaya regarding a possible toy line and I'd think official North American blu-rays of
the remastered Japanese versions are at least "in talks" with companies in the States now. I'd think Shout Factory would be interested
in releasing the official blu-rays and even contacted them but got no response.

Hopefully we'll here something *this year* regarding Tsuburaya's Ultraman plans for North America.

I am not a fan of this Ultraman Funko pop:

https://mobile.twitter.com/FunkoPOPsNew ... 2592595968

... but I have to wonder: is this going to be the first piece of Ultra merchandise officially licensed by Tsuburaya in the US in who knows how long?

The font on the packaging certainly looks like the Ultraman English language logo that Tsuburaya has been plastering on all their stuff lately.

Love that Tsuburaya appears to be on their way with licensing out Ultraman merchandise for the United States with an
official Funko Pop! Vinyl figure.

Don't like the design of the eyes and that it's apparently a Barnes and Knobles "Exclusive" but I'll track one down to
support Tsuburaya!

Edit: The U.S. version is pretty much the exact same design as the Asian Funko Pop. I forgot Funko Pop figures
have the "iconic" black dot eyes on pretty much all their figures so I can get past the look of it considering that.

Man, I was wondering if this finally got settled or what given the announcements about Mill Creek’s new Blu-rays. Guess now I know.

Han-This was indeed settled. A US court ruled unanimously in favor of Tsuburaya Productions Japan and FINALLY ended the legal battle with Chaiyo that had take place over a number
of years. https://www.quinnemanuel.com/the-firm/o ... -ultraman/

I can understand if you were younger and have a nostalgic attachment. But for me, since I was older, I could tell the quality was inferior to what other studios had done in the 60's/70's. Still I recorded as many episodes as I could when it was on TNT (despite its random airtimes, and random airings of episodes), years later I got a set of the dubs to keep for posterity, even after getting the S!F release of the whole series.

I would be surprised if the Cinar dubs show up on the Mill Creek release, they certainly weren't present on S!F. But to make a fan like you happy, I hope they do, I'd certainly not reject the notion.

Check SpacehunterM's YouTube. He got ahold of the Hawaiian dub of a couple of episodes and did comparisons between that and the Cinar dub. It's obvious Cinar is using the Hawaiian dub as a base, and while their dub is less respectful (and severely edited) the voice acting is stronger than the monotone Hawaiian dub.
