Ultra Act Ultraman Mebius
Review by chachipower
If you enjoyed the Ultra Act Ultraman, you will no doubt enjoy the Ultra Act Ultraman Mebius. It is done in very much the same way the regular Ultra Act Ultraman was done. Tons of articulation and great proportions. He looks very good in a standard pose.
The sculpt is really well done. The eyes are translucent which gives a really nice effect to the head.
The figure has great articulation- from head to toes. The upper chest and waist are jointed. I love the double joints that have been given to this figure. Here we see the double joints in the elbows and knees. The figure is standing on his own in this shot.
Now let's take a look at his alternate parts. Here is his Mebium Shoot which requires removing the hand and replacing it with this cool effect. Nicely done.
This is the Mebius Brace which unfortunately falls off very easily on this figure.
To create the Mebium Blade effect, the standard Mebius Brace is replaced with this blade-laden Mebius Brace.
There is also a nice soft PVC effect to create the Lightning Counter-Zero energy punch effect.
Last but not least is the color timer. Unfortunately, it is a swappable piece. I would have preferred an LED. Especially at this price point.
Overall a nice figure. I believe it's a tad on the expensive side for not having an LED effect. Build-wise, the figure is not up to par with other figures we have come to see from Bandai at this price. The figure feels light and somewhat "cheap", but you can't knock the articulation abilities of this figure. The sculpt is nice and it looks great and some on a shelf. I didn't experience any of the floppiness I had on my Ultra Act Ultraman. If you are a fan of Ultraman, you will no doubt enjoy this figure.
