Get ultra lazy in this luxurious Zetton chair.

As (pretend)head of a family of five, I often have hard decisions to make when it comes to budgeting. Spend our money on retainers  or get a new BBQ set, buy winter coats for the kids or a Victoria Secret set for the missus….choices, choices, decisions, decisions..being a dad is hard at some times. Once in a blue moon however something pops up and spending my hard earned cash on it seems like a no-brainer and unimportant things like school tuition and life insurance payments fade to the back of my wallet.

When I was a child there was always a “father chair” in the house, a chair you wouldn’t sit down in without asking your old man’s permission. A beautiful leather  throne which you warn your hyper energetic friend about not to sit in when dad was around.

My father would sit in it smoking his pipe and  we mortals crawled up on the sofa while watching “The six million dollar man”. Well I found my chair and I am going to get it and nobody will be allowed to sit in it without my permission…so it won’t be in the living room because I have lost all authority there, same goes for the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, but I`ll use it at the office, a place where people still respect my sandwich labeled “boss” in the fridge and use close to polite language when addressing me…

Meet the Zetton Chair!

Made out of fine Italian Leather(Italian cows?) and sewn by skilled craftsmen, this premium chair was made to commemorate the first Ultraman TV broadcast fifty years ago.

While Zetton isn’t the most handsome lad, somehow the folks of Karimoku Furniture and MAN OF ULTRA have incorporated all characteristics  which make Zetton such a ugly monster into a most beautiful chair. The wrinkled white arms and legs which remind you of an 80 year old love in a swimsuit, the way its black skin covers those milky arms like a loose swimsuit… The back is fitted with deformed shaped studs which were mounted one by one and resemble Zetton rear side perfectly.

Call it furniture, call it art, you don’t have to be an Ultraman lover to appreciate this chair, it’s not only well designed, it’s also extremely well made with the finest materials and it’s comfy…ooooh so comfy with its “3D net” cushion material and soft leather which wrapped around your body make you resemble a tortilla.

It comes with a ottoman to lay your tired feet on…

The backrest resembles Zetton’s chest pattern

The price for this is 500.000 yen, not cheap, but no good furniture is and this chair will last you a life time. I always say “if you have the dough, let it flow!” and if you don’t then you can always sell a kidney on the black market…trust me this chair is worth it.

ULTRAMAN suitcases combine style and substance.

BIBILAB, the company which has brought us a lot of unique products like the nomad suitcase, a suitcase which turns into a desk or the Damekun, the most comfy pajamas ever.

 

This time around they collaborated with our favorite super hero and created what we would call the most awesome suitcase ever!

A MAN of ULTRAデザイン

The “A MAN OF ULTRA” suitcase is not just very pretty to look at, it’s also very unique in its features. Instead of creating normal sized suitcase, they made it slim and tall,  so without  sacrificing any volume(58L),they created a far more useful form.

Its sleek design makes it easier to carry around than an “ordinary” suitcase and takes less floor space. If you’re the kind of person who get brought to the Airport by limousine than you’ve never experienced or will experience (that is until the next Lehman shock..)the hardship we mere mortals suffer just to get to the airport. Bumping into people’s knees in full trains, going through the ticket gates in a most awkward style …..

"The smart even in a narrow space, such as escalators and trains in.

The width of this suitcase is equal to an A4 size paper and the height is 80 centimeters which would it make similar to traveling with a 5 year old child, just without the constant nagging for snacks and toilet breaks.

The “slim and tall” design makes it also possible to carry things, you normally wouldn’t be able to fir in your suitcase, like a skateboard/ Hoverboard, a tennis racket or diving equipment….

The suitcase is made of ABS and polycarbonate, materials which besides sounding very fancy have the characteristics of being light (4.3kg) and strong.

It has 4 quiet caster wheels of which two can be easily locked, they are pretty nice designed wheels too, giving you a little bling.

Quiet 4-wheel casters

Have you ever wondered how the customs inspects your luggage, even when you tightly locked yours? Well I haven’t, I’ve always been too busy looking for free WIFI, but not to get off topic here, this suitcase has a TSA lock (transportation security administration) which can only be openend by yourself and by TSA officials with a special master key, so in case they suspect something, they just open it and close it without breaking anything.

The ULTRAMAN suitcase comes in two varieties; the silver colored one is created by A MAN OF ULTRA and they also have a black version  with a silver accent stripe with ULTRAMAN’s pic.

It even has a nifty space to keep your tripod!

Storage capacity 58 liters

Your 1/3 scale doll(!?) fits easily, because who would leave home without it?

These suitcases are limited and need preordering, with the silver version almost sold out and the black very close to being almost sold out. They are selling the suitcases through four selling points, with Amazon Japan being the only one which has still the silver one. So you have to act fast. Delivery will be on October 21.

Bluetooth SSSP Communicator Pin, a necessity for those hunting monsters, aliens….or for those who just want a cool BT mic/receiver.

Yes I know, yet another Ultraman article…..sorry, I don’t wanna be a freak, but I can’t help myself. We at a JWS love Ultraman, some of our staff like the stories, others, like me, love the fashion and its total atmosphere..one member even has a full human sized Ultraman suit at home, and a 1.8 meter life like doll at home….so now you know who’s the only single member in our group too.

Thank god we are not alone in our obsession with this giant, yet delicate super hero, we bought and shipped quite a lot of products from the “A MAN OF ULTRA” shop worldwide.

Premium Bandai will release this month this amazing Bluetooth SSSP clip-on mic and receiver, where SSSP stands for Science Special Search-Party which are the brave folks who search and find bad-ass monsters and aliens.

SSSP
The original team

More than just a replica fashion statement though, this product actually improves over the original. The original communicator pin was merely a radio transmitter, where the new one works as a wireless mic, call notifier, speaker or headphone transmitter with its earphone jack and it’s a fashion statement!

Check the video and you see what I mean.

An incoming call is answered by pulling out the antenna and the ringing sound is the  tone of the original communicator, how much more authentic can it get? A little less authentic but very much welcomed are the volume buttons and buttons to change music tracks.

Indistinguishable  from the original..the intense look on your face is optional.
The mic is on top which makes for easier talking, except if you like your groin to do all the talking, then you’re out of luck.

This limited product is priced at 21,600 yen with delivery in February, pricey? Yes a bit but everything worth buying ain’t cheap, the rest is just “gamman” (Japanese for patience, in this context it means buying something cheaper while you long for the original item)shipping will not be expensive due to its light weight.
