The 6 Ultraman Brothers Now at Tokyo Sky Tree!

When many of the fathers today were small children, Ultraman had already been a long-established TV series and enormously popular among children as a giant transforming hero. Still today, Ultraman is loved as an iconic SFX hero by all generations of fans around the world. Photo: http://characterland.jp/

Original Tokyo Sky Tree collaboration items themed on the 6 Brothers of Ultra are available exclusively at the event site. Every single one of them is of such rarity that all fans of the series would drool over them.

 

The event has gained such an enormous reputation that its limited figures became sold out in just a short time after the opening and the figure’s reproduction has been decided to be offered starting in late June. It is definitely a must check-out for all Ultraman fans. If you ever happen to be in Japan and planning a visit to Tokyo Sky Tree during the event period, never miss out on this special event!
