New York Comic Con started off with a bang! Anime ULTRAMAN Suit-Taro made an appearance at the Bandai NAMCO Tamashii Nations booth and the crowds went wild. Fans lined up to get a closer look at the epic official suit, which came all the way from Tsuburaya Productions in Tokyo, Japan for the occasion. This is the first time Taro has been seen in North America since his global debut at Anime Expo in Los Angeles.
Those who lined up for photos were also put on a priority line to purchase an event exclusive Ultraman S.H Figuarts Marvel The Rise of Ultraman figure, signed by Rise of Ultraman artist, Fransesco Manna and writer Kyle Higgins, who collaborated in the creation of this version of the character. For $75 signed and $50 event exclusive price, we consider this fully articulated, high quality figure a steal!
Nothing could compare to the energy of seeing people meet their favorite hero and walking away with a prize they’ll cherish always. An electric beginning to a weekend of wonder. We here at Ultraman Connection hope to see some of you there these next few days, and stay tuned for more updates here on UltramanConnection.com!
