Ultraman - Banpresto Big Size Ultraseven Sofubi Figure















Ultraseven, sometimes spelled Ultra Seven is the third Ultra being to come to Planet Earth. On his first visit to Earth, he saved the life of a young mountain climber named Jiro Satsuma, who had nearly fallen to his own death to save a fellow climber from sharing his fate. The most famous of these weapons is Ultraseven's Eye Slugger, which is a boomerang-like weapon that can be controlled by Ultraseven in flight. It serves as a head crest when not in use, and is the first of several detachable Crest Weapons used by later Ultras.

Sofubi is a Japanese contraction meaning " soft vinyl". Big Size Ultraseven Sofubi Figure, I presumed is the big soft vinyl 10" (25 cm) figure toyline by Banpresto with ready to fight stance posing with 3 points of articulation on the arms and the waist. It comes in a blister card package. Released in 2009, from the Banpresto Ultra Series as a complete painted Sofubi figure. I believed the figure was initially released as prize item therefore the marking below the feet was printed with 'Not for Sale' which give a sense of exclusiveness. Maybe due to the age of the figure, it has that crayon smell, hmmm...
