Recently, Tamashii Nations announced the upcoming Premium Bandai exclusive release for S.H.Figuarts Brothers’ Mantel. For those unaware, the Brothers’ Mantel is an accessory worn by the Ultra Brothers: Ultraman, Zoffy, Ultraseven, Ultraman Jack, Ultraman Ace and Ultraman Taro. These items are dashing capes that are given to elite members of the Space Garrison for their service. However, there is a variety of mantels worn throughout the series, as seen with Father of Ultra, Mother of Ultra, Ultraman King, and Ultraman Zero.
In addition, Tamashii Nations previously released the Brothers’ Mantel in the now defunct Ultra-Act figure series. Yet, those retail releases consisted of solid plastic and hinged joints as the bases for the capes. Whereas, Tamashii Nations has currently opted for cloth capes with wire-infused within the seams to allow fans to create dynamic poses. Furthermore, this production choice helps to explain the item’s release through Premium Bandai. Nevertheless, below is the official gallery for the figure from Bandai:
Now, pre-orders for S.H.Figuarts Brothers’ Mantel are currently available on Premium Bandai. Orders for this accessory are priced at 2420 yen, with orders schedule to ship in November. For those interested in purchasing this item, please go contact a middleman service as soon as possible.
