Review: Ultra-Act Ultraman Ace


The Showa brothers released in Ultra-Act form has proven to be surprisingly popular and with copyright issues affecting distribution of the brothers in South-East Asia..the prices have been rather crazy. Still I managed to grab Ace for a decent price of 4000 yen without a pre-order so a review is due!

Nothing different here..the usual pretty packaging =3

Ace is much more bulkier than Ultraman is and feels more solid as well. The joints are well-hidden and overall gives a really pleasant impression.

Th e silver really pops and complements the red well and I like how the gloves and boots are sculpted. The creases and wrinkles really reflects the original suit.


I like how the shoulderpads were done but those eyes..why is it that shade of yellow? And it’s also missing the pupils right at the ends..Is the Ultra-Act Ace suffering from cataracts?


A comparison with his fellow brother. Check out the improvement in joints and body sculpt! I understand that they possess different suits but still the improvements are awesome!


Accessories wise..pretty alright but nothing to be blown-away by.

No issues doing spread-leg poses. He can hold his ground and looks good doing it!

Ace-blade! I don’t really seem to remember this weapon but hey, free stuff is always good! The Ace Blade can cut through anything and it’s conjured up by sheer willpower…oooh

Vertical Guillotine! This effect part is pretty neat and attaches via both his arms but it’s a pain to properly position. Still it’s awesome though!

Of course all Ultras got to have their signature beam! Ace whips out his Metallium Kousen and destroys the unfortunate Kumo-Otoko..which was unfortunate enough to tangle with an Ultra instead of his usual Ichigo..=3 The Kousen effect part looks dubiously like it’s suffering from measles..measles beam?



I really really like Ace. Despite the fact that he’s taller than Ultraman by a bit and his eyes are kinda crappy, the body sculpt totally won me over. It’s a joy to pose and play with and despite the average amount of’s good enough for me. The silver paint is sweet and if it wasn’t so hard to hunt down I would highly recommend this to everyone. Ah it is I’m still sore about missing Zoffy..still at least I got 宇宙のエース!

  1. This was great, the pictures felt like watching a fight from the show. That first picture makes it look like he really is a giant fighting among buildings. To be able to reproduce the poses and action from the show is the best testament to an action figure such as this.
