Limited Edition Ultraman G Shock to be Released

I saw this posted on myghock and decided this is the coolest limited edition G Shock ever made.

Casio is celebrating the 45th anniversary of Ultraman with a special limited edition release featuring a customized DW5600 and collector tin.

The model number will be DW-5600VTULTRAMAN-1TJR and 1,000 units will be made with an expected release of September 30, 2011 at a price of 19,000 Yen.

For those of you who don't know, Ultraman was the central character in a Japanese television show broadcast from 1966 to 1967.  Along the same lines as Godzilla, Ultraman was a giant-sized alien who would save Earth from other giant-sized monsters intending to cause destruction and mayhem.  As I was watching the Power Rangers with my son this morning I decided that the genre has not drifted too far in 45 years.  For more information on Ultraman click here.
