Last year, Seismic launched the Ultraman Vinyl Odyssey toy line with Jirahs and Clear Jirahs. This year, on Ultraman day, Seismic announced that the line is continuing with a brand new Sevenger - Ultraman 55th Anniversary Edition toy available for pre-order now until August 30th. Here’s the announcement video:
Sevenger stands 9 inches tall and is cast in premium red glitter vinyl with a metallic finish. The toy is meant to evoke Ultraman’s color palette, with a bright blue energy core simulating Ultraman’s ‘color timer’ to celebrate 55 years of the Ultraman series.
The toy has 11 points of articulation and offers a second set of eyes so you can swap Sevenger’s emotion from “sad” to “angry.” The toy also comes packed with a brand-new feature to the Ultraman Vinyl Odyssey series: a lucky trading card. Randomly inserted into each purchase is a special Sevenger trading card to add a unique touch to the figure! Sevenger is sculpted by Mike Lambert with header card art by DJ Crumrine.
“Sevenger represents a new step forward for us.” Seismic Chief Creative Officer Alex Rushdy explained. “It’s our most fully-featured toy yet, and we’re incredibly proud of how he turned out. To be able to celebrate the Sevenger character with a colorway celebrating the entire Ultraman series is something we are really excited about.”
Sevenger is an anti-monster robot first appearing in Ultraman Leo (1974) and then returning in Ultraman Z (2021). This toy is based on the Ultraman Z version of the character.
Sevenger - Ultraman 55th Anniversary Edition is expected to ship by the end of this year with pre-sale now available for $200.00 USD + S&H. Orders can be placed directly from Seismic Toys, as well as some of your favorite soft vinyl toy Retailers.
In addition to the Sevenger announcement, Seismic offered glimpses at the next two figures in the toyline.
First was a sneak peek at Ultraman Tiga in his multi-type form. Sculpted by Mike Lambert, this figure will be released in 2023.
