I know these things can take time(licensing, etc) but I'm surprised there's been ZERO talk/indication that ANYTHING is coming Stateside at this point except for that Ultraman Funko Pop figure and the Ultraman Anime Netflix series.

It's mid July and nothing. I wonder what's going on? :?: :!:

^ Licensing and whatnot often takes ages. If you've got a new book or home video release in your hands the deals in place to actually publish it probably extend back years.

True. Hopefully they're aiming for a fall/holiday "re-launch" of sorts for Ultraman in America. Blu-rays, t-shirts, collectibles, etc.

Now THAT is some ULTRA-huge news!!! I'm officially hyped like I haven't been in a while!
It sounds like additional features (including English dubs) are still in talks, but the HD masters alone sound well worth the price!

^ Licensing the classic material was always one of the goals along with getting interest in a new reboot. Who knows (wishful thinking), maybe they already have something in the works just like this Mill Creek deal has no doubt been in the works for a while?
