EX Red King
Review by JoshB
Has the designer toy movement infected the house of Ultraman? Judging by the appearance of EX Red King, one would think so. But no, this is a whole new character for an Ultraman video game.
This version of Red King appears in the Ps2 video game "Ultraman Fighting Evolution Rebirth" otherwise known as "Ultraman Fighting Evolution 4". You can view EX Red King in action in this video:
EX Red King is your standard Ultra Kaiju, made out of soft vinyl with not much poseability. He has swivel legs, arms, tail and forearms.
The toy features a swing tag and bonus playing card for the "Data Cardass" system. The card is bar-coded and can be swiped in any of the multitudes of arcade machines in Japan featuring compatible games.
Paint detail is nice, and the color is appropriate. How about that - Redking actually looks somewhat RED.
At only about $9 US, you can't go wrong with these toys. The value gets even greater if you have access to an arcade machine that uses the cards, but the odds of seeing one in the US is slim.
