Ultra Seven Human Form by 5 Star

Every superhero has a secret identity - Clark Kent is Superman, Bruce Wayne is Batman, Viggo is Aragorn, and Dan Moroboshi is Ultra Seven in human form. Dan joins the Terrestrial Defense Force Ultra Guard (TDF UG) so that he can be one of the first to be informed when Earth is threatened. When monsters appear, Dan will transform into Ultra Seven to fight the monsters and save the day. Dan Moroboshi is played by Kohji Moritsugu.

This boxed set was released by Five Star Toy (Japan) in 2002 as a 35th year anniversary of the debut of Ultra Seven in 1967 and limited to only 100 pieces worldwide.

The back of the box details all the accessories and parts that come with this boxed set

The boxed set is similar to Toys McCoy's Indiana Jones packaging. Kohji Moritsugu was so into the character that his signature even resembled Ultra Seven - talk about dedication!

Dan Moroboshi's civvies - bright yellow jacket, vest, boxers, jeans and shoes plus his sling bag

Check out the shoes - really reminds me of those days when these were hip and cool, no Nike or Adidas then

Check this out - "do-it-yourself" hands with individual moving digits / fingers (Neo Guy from Volks) plus the customary gloved hands

Kohji Moritsugu as Dan Moroboshi

His TDF UG helmet (B type), chrome metal ultra gun and ultra eye


He's wearing his watch communicator / "videoceiver"



His TDF UG belt with buckle and holster for his ultra gun


Dan Moroboshi transforming into Ultra Seven

Ultra Seven has his Monster Capsules carried on his belt. When unable to fight (usually because his Ultra Eye has been stolen), Dan will often produce a small capsule that releases a giant-sized monster to fight in his place. Although he is shown to have four or five capsules, only three capsule monsters are shown in the series - Windam, Mikuras, and Agira. The beginning of Pocket Monsters (Pokemon) - LOL!!

Transforming....

Comes with the half transformation stage - half-human, half-Ultra Seven

Nice figure! must be very impressive when you have all the human forms of Ultraman & Kamen Rider all standing together! They should make the fat bloke behind the box cover too!

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

ja ja, me liking it too :) methinks you got a shoe fetish - ha! ha! have you seen the number of shoes Marcus have?

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

oops! was replying Shaun when Marcus' comment came in - "speak of the devil" (hee! hee!). hi marcus, nice to get the Ultraman human forms for their helmets and uniforms. Love the outrageous designs - not very subtle.

Shaun said...

yes I have to admit to a liking for cool kicks. I guess Marcus has as many shoes as his toys!
