Ultraman - This or that?

Mar 06, 2019,02:47 AM

Its amazing to think there are 50 years between the 2 of these Ultramen and yet side by side they seem like brothers (rather than father and son).


I think they really did a great job with the Speedie Tuesday Ultraman, but in my mind the original holds the edge... even with all its battle scars from wearing over the years.

How could you improve on the superb original version.

I agree..

but think they did a good job... not exactly copying it but putting in some nice touches. Cheers Andrew

only as it had an orange hand Cheers Andrew

Yes I think it is riding the wave with the new Ultraman

and also after many years Omega are finally backing the fact that they issued some with the orange hand and are confirming them all now on the extracts. I was at Omega HQ a few months ago and they gave mine the tick of approval. Cheers Andrew

The original is hard to beat, but the new have the advantage of being able to be used in every day life without scare... Best Blomman
