Review: Ultra-Act Gomora
Gomora was the first kaiju released in the Ultra-Act line, and I never got around to reviewing it until now. Gomora is one of the more popular monsters, from the Ultraman universe, and has gotten a lot of love in the new Ultraman Zero films. Since I am on a quest to catchup on this toy line, here is the review.
Figure: Like Eleking, Gomora has a ton of useless articulation points. Why give Gomora an ab crunch, if it’s can’t even move? I’m sure even the most hardcore collectors wouldn’t mind if it missing that break in the mold. The rest of the body is surprisingly posable, so there’s a lot of fun that can be had with this figure. The sculpt, however, is fantastic. The crisp paint applications on the finely sculpted textures make Gomora look like it’s a hybrid of real reptilian skin and foam. This guy is simply a work of art. The tail is massive, and has a decent range of movement. There is, however, one real annoying thing with this toy. The figure’s right leg is prone to popping off the hip peg.
Accessories: Besides the massive tail, Gomora doesn’t come with much. There are only two other included accessories. The first accessory is the horn flame. You just pull out the original horn and then swap it with this flame effects part. I can see what they were trying to do here, but it definitely isn’t as cool as the current stuff they do with transparent plastics. The other accessory is a replacement tail stump.
Overall: Though Gomora is an oldie, it definitely still holds its own. This is another fantastic addition to the Ultra-Act gallery, and I’m really satisfied and glad to own it. I highly recommend that everyone give him a chance. There, however, will be issues with storage… this guy takes up a lot of space once you factor his tail into the picture.
