We now know that the exciting and historic Ultraman Rising storyline will be unfolding across Anime Expo 2022, featuring live appearances by Ultraman and his Kaiju foes directly from Tsuburaya Productions.
Now we know more about the storyline and prizes! Apparently, Dada and Alien Baltan will somehow get loose on the convention floor! The Unidentified Capture League (UCL) will be recruiting convention-goers to Hunt for Dada, snapping pics of the digital demon, and posting them to social media (#DADA #AX2022) in order to pinpoint its location for our stalwart agents.
After the convention, Ultraman Connection will be pouring through the data and selecting upwards of a dozen winners at random. Those winners will receive prizes from Bandai, Ultraman Connection, and a stunning Grand Prize: the PureArts ULTRAMAN VS BLACK KING 1/4 SCALE EXCLUSIVE EDITION STATUE.
Based on the Production I.G. anime ULTRAMAN, currently airing on Netflix, this massive and gorgeous polyresin tableaux features an LED light system for Ultraman’s chest and eyes, magnetic head and arm connections, and the best part? The statue package will be signed by the co-directors of Anime ULTRAMAN, Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki.
This epic limited-edition beauty, worth $850 retail, could be yours for free if you partake in the Hunt for Dada & Baltan. Once a winner is chosen, you will be contacted by the UCL and will receive this bounty for your triumph. Here’s a look at the full model in high detail.
We will be posting a QR registration code soon and can’t wait to see you at Anime Expo 2022, July 1 - 4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Good luck and stay tuned for more updates at UltramanConnection.com!
