Monsarger figure

Monsarger; One of Bandai's newest figures in the Ultra monster Series

The Ultra Monster Series (ウルトラ怪獣シリーズ - Urutora Kaiju Shirizu) is a series of sofubi soft vinyl action figures designed specifically for Kids created by Bandai that portrays the monsters found in the hit TV series: Ultra Q, Ultraman, Ultra Seven, The Return of Ultraman, Ultraman Ace, Ultraman Taro, Ultraman Leo, Ultraman 80, Ultraman Tiga, Ultraman Dyna, Ultraman Gaia, etc. The line of figures first started production in 1966, and since then, many other figures have joined the collection. The line's latest release was in 2011 December, although other figures had been scheduled to be released.

In 2013 the line concluded and was replaced by the Ultra Monster 500 and Ultra Monster 500/Ultra Monster 500 DX Series. And in 2015 was replaced by the Ultra Monster X Series. As of 2016, the line's most recent Suscessor is the Ultra Monster Orb Series.

Figures HistoryEdit

The first batch of the Ultra Monster Series had a decent look that had something competitors Bullmark, Marusan, and other companies could not offer: The accuracy of the figures to their costume counterparts. The other toys were not as accurate to the suit themselves as the new Bandai figures were, and because of this advantage, these figures became very popular and quickly became a force to be reckoned with for both Kids and Adults alike. The first set of these figures contained many memorable monsters from the original series. The later ones contained many other monsters. Later, there came SP's and EX's. Even later, Heisei monsters also joined the list, and the series became complete.

Ultra Monster BattleEdit

To Be Added

Immortal Ultra Monsters SetEdit

Similar to the Ultra Hero Collection Box/Everlasting Ultra Warriors, this 8-piece figure set was released in 2 box sets. Each figure stands about 10 cm tall (about 4 inches).

Special TagsEdit

Throughout the ages, the Ultra Monster series have went through many tag designs, from double sheeted to single sheeted, the tags remain a colorful part of the toys and are highly valued. This section talks about the unusual tags and Easter Eggs of UMS Tags.

Bagged TagEdit

The bagged tag monsters are some of the rarer tags, or rather, head-a-cards to find. The toys are no longer bound by a tag attached by a hook, but now a plastic bag with a piece of cardboard stapled to it. The version was also released in China by Bandai under the name "Fuman" with the ensign of "奥特曼" on it, marking the beginning of the official Ultraman name in China.

Promo TagEdit

The promo tag was originally released in the 1966 Ultra Q Monster Series (as there were no other Ultras at the time, the UMS was just called the Ultraman Monster Series. Later, it would be Ultraseven, then Return of Ultraman, and Ultraman Ace.). The tags were only slightly different from the common tags and were used as an Easter Egg for buyers. Later, the tags were specifically attached to blanks figures made from white vinyl in the Ultraseven series, but the concept was ditched after the Return of Ultraman Series kicked in. The tags stopped production after the Ace series.

"Typo" TagsEdit

Typo tags were a strange series of tags in the 1989 run of UMS that had the manufacturer information printed right under the picture of the Ultras in white, successfully cutting the picture in half. The tags, however, featured something the common tags didn't: the name of the monster on the bottom of the back of the tag. A black bordered version was also produced, but there has not been any trace of these tags since the 1989 run of UMS.

Great Decisive Battle! Box of 49 TagsEdit

Some of the Box of 49

Some of the box of 49

The Box of 49 tags were special tags created for a boxset of Ultras and Ultra monsters created by Bandai in the 1989 run of UMS. The box was rather clustered and featured tags with the box name on the picture of the Ultras, which was: Great Decisive Battle! Box of 49. The Ultras also had tags hooked to their back, instead of boxes.

TriviaEdit

  • Some of the old UMS figures were reissued and released in department stores in Asia, and it includes a generic Ultra Monster Series card.
  • Many monsters were not made due to Bandai thinking that they will not sell well. However, most of the Showa monsters not made by Bandai were produced by Marusan, Bullmark, and POPY. Later monsters can also be found as garage kits (assembling and painting required kits) by X-PLUS, The Lawless Monster Zone, and other companies. X-PLUS also issues out pre-built and painted sets in their "Giant Ultra Monsters" sets, with minor assembly required.
