This Ultraman Zoffy figure was given to me for Christmas one year by my buddy Derek. He has a huge collection of Japanese monster toys including Godzilla, Ultraman, and Gamera. We used his collection in our movie Godzilla Flick. That video starts with actual footage of me opening Godzilla and King Kong figures from Derek for my 6th Birthday. This Zoffy figure has a whole three points of articulation. He has a pivet joint at his shoulders and his waist. These guys where not very possible. You could never recreate any of their poses from the shows with these figures. Derek probably has 7 or 8 different Ultramen, but I has the Commander.
I grew up watching Ultra Man along with Battle of the Planets and i love them both even until today. Great looking figure my friend. : )ReplyDelete
I remember the first time I saw Battle of the Planets... I thought it was the Voltron Pilots dressed as birds.Delete
I watched this show as a kid.Didn't he transform in front of a mirror or something?Great Ultraman!ReplyDelete
I've seen some of the different Ultraman shows, but I'm not sure the specifics of Zoffy. He usually did not transform and would be called in to help the Ultraman that did transform and was the main character when they needed extra help.Delete
