XM’s first ever Ultraman release, Ultraman C Type statueAward-winning global design studio XM has unveiled its latest premium collectible, Ultraman (C Type), from its acquisition of the Ultraman license. The 60cm statue will feature one of Japan’s most iconic superheroes from the nostalgic TV series and will be the first collectible in XM’s new Ultraman range.

A fitting addition to any collection, the Ultraman (C Type) statue was conceptualised by XM together with acclaimed sculptor Yoshiki Fujimoto, who worked as the 3D artist for this statue. XM’s interpretation features Ultraman in a unique defensive pose, hand-painted to perfection without compromising on the incredible screen accurate details, down to the folds of the C Type suit. The statue will come with sequential lighting for the eyes and a chest for added flair. The base of the statue features the Jet VTOL, an aircraft that members of the Science Special Search Party (SSSP) would pilot against Kaiju and other threats, with Ultraman standing guard over it.

“Ultraman (C Type) is the first of many in the Ultraman range. We are honoured to have acquired the Ultraman license as the interest in collectibles featuring classic characters in our community grows. We hope that our Ultraman (C Type) statue collectible will bring a sense of nostalgia to everyone and that they will enjoy the stories that each collectible will tell,” said Mr Ben Ang, CEO and co-founder of XM.

Pre-order for the premium statues starts from 20 February 2022 on XM’s website, at S$1,399.

In celebration of the 55th anniversary of Singapore-Japan relations known as SJ55, XM will also be releasing a thematic premium collectibles series later in 2022.
