Cool. Not sure if I can afford these right now, but I think I want both Redking and Max.

I'll be ordering Red King around it's release, but will probably hold off on Max for now. Between the August release and the MA King Ghidorah release in September, my wallet will be taking a pounding.

Still won't stop me from getting them. :mrgreen:

I believe you're referring to Alien Magma...?

Heck, I'd like to see Alien Babalou in the UA line! Alien Magma just doesn't work for me.

There's a prototype out there.

Whoops! Dogora already found it.

They're possibly not releasing this one.

Interestingly, Red King has two sets of hands. He will often be posed slapping himself.

Not too big of a fan of UltraMan, as I have made mention before, but two things...

1. Eleking. Can someone give me a crash course on him, or point me in the right direction?

If you link lmgtfy, so HELP me god.

2. I want the gold one.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleking

Ultraseven (first appearance): http://monsterarchives.proboards.com/in ... thread=298

Ultraman Max (kind of a remake of his first appearance): http://monsterarchives.proboards.com/in ... thread=231

Ultra Galaxy (as a "heroic" monster): http://monsterarchives.proboards.com/in ... hread=2533

Hope that helps.

There's also Eleking II or whatever that appears in Taro. And the little Eleking that's a sort of pet of the team in Mebius and, IIRC, also appears in Ultra Galaxy. :] Eleking is the man (the monster?).

It's pretty nifty.


You need to watch some of the shows, though, GreenAiden. Try watching a few episodes of Ultraman Max--you can see Eleking and a lot of other classic monsters there, and the production values are very high, featuring well-known tokusatsu effects artists and directors. Shusuke Kaneko directed the Eleking episode. :]

Seconded. Great figure and the kaiju has a very distinctive design. Really, all of the kaiju in this line are pretty fantastic so far...

Off-topic, but is that a Kamen Rider figure? I'm not familiar with the show (read: completely clueless) but that guy looks cool.
