Welcome to another all-new episode of Hero Club’s Podcast, “Los Ingobernables de Tokusatsu!” Today’s episode should be considered a continuation of the last discussion held during last week’s episode.

Yet, in the time between recording and airing that episode, Tamashii Nations also hosted their Fall event; which made us further question Tamashii Nations’ methods of marketing their products.

Review: S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Belial Atrocious

The Demonic Fusion is unleashed within Tamashii Nations’ S.H.Figuarts line, as Ultraman Belial Atrocious arrives. This combination is the fusion of the Dark Lugiel and Alien Empera Kaiju Capsules. For those unaware, Alien Empera was the main antagonist of Ultraman Mebius whereas, Dark Lugiel was the antagonist in Ultraman Ginga/ Ultraman Ginga S. Yet, in this form, Ultraman Belial Atrocious makes me consider it a reference to the Ultra N Project. Never the less, this was Belial’s acquired form for the Geed finale, and it is impressive. The figure features…
