Today, Tamashii Nations finally decided to pull the trigger, and announce the release details for S.H.Figuarts Ultrawoman Grigio! For those unaware, the figure has been previously shown during various Tamashii events for past few years. Whereas, each time the prototypes or finish product was on display, they were given no dates for release. As a result, fans began to believe Ultrawoman Grigio was being sidelined for reissues and other popular characters expected to sell better. However, the wait is over, and the character is being released to promote her appearance in the upcoming web-series, Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Destined Crossroads.
Yet, long time Ultra Series fans know Ultraman Grigio (Asahi Minato) as the younger sister to Ultraman Rosso and Ultraman Blu. In addition, while the character of Asahi Minato existed during the events of Ultraman R/B, she did not transform into Ultrawoman Grigio until the series’ feature film. Furthermore, this release of the character will complete the three Minato Siblings (Katsumi, Isami & Asahi) in S.H.Figuarts form. Unfortunately, this release of S.H.Figuarts Ultrawoman is a Premium Bandai exclusive item which sadly means lesser quantities for fans to purchase. Nevertheless, below is the official gallery and accessory listings for the figure as provided by Bandai:
This figure will contain:
- 7 Pairs of Optional Hands
- 2 Additional Right Hand Options
- The Grigio Shot Effect
- [Bonus] Optional Right Hand for Ultraman Zero
Pre-orders for S.H.Figuarts Ultrawoman Grigio will open Monday, May 2 at 12:00 pm JST. Whereas, orders for this item are priced at 7,150 yen, and its intended release is scheduled for September 2022. For those interested in purchasing this item, they should contact their preferred middleman service for more details.
