Ultraman SAGA RAW UPDATED!

Well, look what finally made it’s way to the interwebs. It’s the raw video for Ultraman SAGA! In this movie celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the franchise, the Earth is invaded by a mysterious group of aliens, and it’s up to Ultraman Zero, with the help of Dyna, Cosmos, and the EDF’s Team U (portrayed by Pop group AKB48), to save us! Check out the full movie below!:

Ultraman SAGA Movie RAW:

Full review when subs are available. I got to tell you, this is probably the first Ultraman-related thing I’ve seen or heard in months. Tsuburaya really needs to get the TV series relaunched, before Toei decides to relaunch the Metal Hero series and just completely takes over the market.

UPDATE: Okay, so that first video’s sound goes out about 33 minutes in, and doesn’t really come back on, so now we have a newly uploaded RAW for you to watch. I’ll still keep the first one up though, just in case one of these videos disappears (and because the second one stops just before the closing credits). Check out that video below:

Ultraman Saga News and Rumors: Zero likes playing host to Dyna and Cosmos. :P

Hey, a lot of new info on the upcoming movie Ultraman Saga popped up at the end of last week, which includes a new host for Ultraman Zero, and the return of the human hosts for Dyna and Cosmos. Looks like Tsuburaya’s got their hat in the ring this winter!

First up, a look at the new host for Zero:

Zero’s last host was Ran from the movie Belial’s Galactic Empire. But for this movie, his new host will be Taiga Nozomu, the newest member of the Super GUTS team. He will be played by singer-songwriter DAIGO, from the band BREAKERZ. Taiga will be able to transform into Zero with the new Zero Brace, which will later be used as the Saga Brace when he transforms into Ultraman Saga.

In this movie, Taiga is a rookie member of the Super GUTS team who is also a talented pilot. After desperately protecting a child in danger and sustaining a serious injury, he is chosen be Zero to be his new host,  resulting in the birth of a new hero.

Co-staring with DAIGO will be Tsurono Takeshi and Sugiura Taiyo, reprising their roles as Asuka Shin/Dyna and Haruno Musashi/Cosmos.

The story deals with a mysterious race of beings that take over the Earth. It’s up to the combined efforts of Zero, Dyna, and Cosmos to take on this new foe and bring back peace to the world.

There was also a new trailor that was released for the movie, but unfortunately I have not been able to find a copy that was available outside of Japan (or at most East-South East Asia).

The movie premieres March 24th, 2012.

New S.H. FiguArts figures for 2011-2012: Or, how Bandai is truly, truly evil.

So look at what the experts in the art of wallet draining have come out with now, a new batch of S.H. FiguArts figures!

These new pics come from the Tamashii Festival 2011, showcasing Bandai’s and Tamashii Nation’s new line of S.H. FiguArts figures. First up was the complete S.H. FiguArts Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger! That’s right, all five Go-Kaigers. Go-KaiRed will be released this September, with Go-KaiBlue and Go-KaiGreen coming out in October, though no word on the release date for Go-KaiYellow or Go-KaiPink. Each figure will come with different parts to build the full brifge to the Go-KaiGalleon, and each will cost 3500 yen.

Also up are the S.H. FiguArt Tiger & Bunny collection. I don’t know a whole lot about the new anime, so I’ll let GekiDan of Jefusion explain:

To be released in September and October respectively, are SH FiguArts Wild Tiger and Barnaby Brooks Jr. for 4500 yen each. Future releases include SH FiguArts Rock Bison, Sky High, Fire Emblem, Lightning Kid, Blue Rose and Origami Cyclone; FiguArts Zero Kotetsu Kaburagi and Barnaby Brooks Jr.; and SH FiguArts version of their motorbikes.

Thanks GekiDan. And now onto some stuff I’m a bit more familiar with:

I haven’t just nerdgasmed, I’ve toku-gasmed!

Anyway, we have S.H.FiguArt figures for (left-right, top-bottom): Kamen Rider V3, Kamen Rider Eternal and Eternal Red Flare, Kamen Rider Den-O Climax form, Kamen Rider Birth Birthday form, Kamen Rider OOO TaJaBata combo, Lost Ankh with BuraKaWani combo, ShinkenRed and ShinkenRed Kaoru, GoseiKnight, Fuwa Juzo, Kamen Riders Ouja and Zolda, Vegeta, and Mirror Knight from the Ultraman Zero movies. Here are a few close ups:

Wait, is that Mezool and Gamel in the back?

I’ll admit, this one is a bit of a surprise to me, not that they did it, but that they skipped over everyone else (except for GoseiRed).

Definitely not surprised by this one!

WIN!

But, it wasn’t exclusively S.H. FiguArts at Tamashii Festival, we also found out about this gem!:

Yes, it’s the Super Robot Chogokin Dekaranger Robo! The articulated, diecast model of the main mecha for Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger. It comes with (as far as we know) the Signal Cannon and Judgement Sword. Price and release date to be announced.

That’s it so far from the Tamashii Festival, I’m sure there’s still plenty more bank-account-draining stuff to come, so stay keep checking back.
