Sometimes you collect stuff that makes you think “What the heck is this? “.. case in point is this set of Ultraman pens. 3 of them ( Ultraman, Ultra Seven and Ultraman Taro ) appear to be from the same release, while the 4th, Ultraman 80, has the same contents and lower shaft with pen, but different style sculpt for the figure. I would guess that the group of three were released earlier.. perhaps in 1973-74, while 80 is from, well 1980 (!) It’s also possible that there’s a Ultraman Ace and Leo out there too .. if anyone has one let me know 😉
While I know what these are for, like drawing or writing 😉 they barely fit my adult hands ..so how could a poor kid handle this thing ? It’s top heavy with the Ultra piece, the octagon shaped shaft hurts to hold it …each is about 12.5 inches long…but heck it’s Ultraman and Family so I bought them.
