Ultraman Jo neus
Review by JoshB
Ultraman Jo neus, also known as:
• Ultraman Joe
• Ultraman Jonius
• The Ultraman
• Ultraman J
• Susan (just kidding about that last one)
He’s the first Ultraman to have an animated series, and probably one of the least known. He’s sort of ugly, and the animation was… not very good. Put it this way – this series debuted at the same time as Mobile Suit Gundam. That’s like an indie film opening at the same time as Star Wars.
This toy is pretty rough. He’s been through the ringer; he’s beat up and his vinyl is a bit warped. It exists, though, so we must chronicle it.
Cast in red vinyl with five points of articulation, there’s not much going on here. It’s got that old-school big size vinyl proportion going on, maybe one of the last ones to do so as this style went away in the 80s. He’s about twelve inches tall, so if nothing else, it’s tall.
