Ultraman Tiga and Ultraman Gaia Dioramas Coming From Beast Kingdom

Beast Kingdom

Giant robots and giant monsters need to have a more significant presence in US media. More TV shows, more movies, more toys! In the 1980s, there was a resurgence of interest in these things, but the only thing that stuck after Voltron was the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Before that, Ultraman nearly became our go-to source for kaiju action for a very brief time.
Luckily, the internet made it more accessible over the decades to find and explore all the things we were walled off from in the pre-AOL days. With all this freedom of information, more and more of us in the USA got exposed to the Ultraman’s awesomeness. While it may not have the same brand recognition as Godzilla, the silver-clad defender of mankind is getting there.
We spotted two new Ultraman collectibles at Beast Kingdom today. Whether you’re a fan of Ultraman Tiga or Gaia, a diorama is available for pre-order to fit your needs. No word if Ultraman Agul is in the works, but I’m all for it. Regardless of which diorama you pick, they’re $34.99 each. These collectibles stand at 6″ tall and will likely ship out in May 2023.

The two designs showcase distinct storylines from the character’s past! The Ultraman Gaia, red and silver costume brings Ultraman Agul from the depths of the oceans to the city skyline with his updated V2 form and classic action pose! In the Ultraman Tiga design, Tiga’s powerful morphing features are seen, where the hero wears his red and purple costume! Both sets include the classic urban setting where Ultraman often fights against the many Kaiju monsters!

In the early days of VHS rental stores, I’d pick out various Godzilla and Ultraman tapes. That’s how I first got exposed to the Ultra Series. In the early ’90s, there was a push to get the show into American media, but it didn’t work. A toy series was not easy to find, and the marketing was nonexistent for Ultraman: Towards the Future, the show Tsuburaya Productions was using to break into the market.

Which version of Ultraman is your favorite? How’d you discover the character or series? Let us know in the comments section below.
