The Large Monster Series Pestar vinyl figure by X-Plus was released in early 2010. It was later reissued as a Wonder Festival exclusive soft version in July 2011. It’s based on the oil-eating menace, Pestar which was featured in episode 13 (titled Oil S.O.S. / オイルSOS) of the original Ultraman television series which first aired in 1966.
This is the latest Ultra kaiju to join my collection: the Large Monster Series Pestar by X-Plus. I’ve been wanting one for years now. Don’t know why I didn’t pull the trigger until now.
The details on this are insane! And it’s a dead ringer for the monster in the original Ultraman series (1966-1967). Every time I look at it I’m flung back to Tilton Street where I lived as a kid; where I watched Ultraman reruns on TV every day.
I freaking love these things. Thanks to X-Plus, I finally have the monsters I’ve always wanted. But, hey, we need more Ultraman ’66 monsters, X-Plus! Okay?
