View Full Version : Chaiyo Ultraman figures

According to Patsy Zukav, her local comics shop already has Chaiyo Ultraman toys on the shelf here in the U.S.
"They included the classic Ultra characters plus Chaiyo's Ultraman Millennium
character. Love them or hate them, they are here.
"I also ran across a report of Chaiyo's Ultra stage show on an online newspaper and discovered that an audience member didn't think it was all it was cracked up to be. It appears that Tsuburaya does a better job with this."

I don't think it's possible to hate something anymore than I hate Chaiyo. I hope that poor excuse for a company burns to the ground...

I'm probably going to get ripped apart for saying this (and make no mistake, I think how Chaiyo got the Ultraman rights was underhanded at best), but if you look at the Ultras Chaiyo has come up with-seperate from all the legal garbage- the characters seem much more true to the original spirit of the character then the modern day, Bandai-inspired, "pull-twenty-million-new-forms-outta-my-behind-so-we-can-sell-more-toys" versions we get now. Like them or, more than likely, hate them, I'll still give them points for that....

I rather like the Tiga concept of three forms but next thing you know, we have Glitter and a few others thrown into the mix when he gets in a bind (or a feature length movie). At least with Kamen Rider Kuuga, his "progression" was explained and made sense through his changes.
Cosmos had two variations that made sense (somewhat) but when you look at it compared to the original Ultras who didn't "power up" to get the job done, it's easy to suspect it's the old Power Rangers marketing ploy with the robos. Of course, Detroit had been doing that for years! :crazy: Bad enough there is a new monster every week but now Ultras are competing for often limited shelf space! :laugh:
