Hideki Go from MAT by Medicom, 2008

Another Ultra Guard, this time it's MAT (Monster Attack Team - seriously!). Not unlike TAC member Seiji Hokuto from the previous post, MAT member Hideki Go is actually Ultraman Jack in human form and is one of the few Ultraman/Ultras that requires no device (like the Beta Capsule) to transform. Hideki Go, the human host for New Ultraman, just raises his hands to transform at will.

Medicom released this 1/6 scale 12-inch of Hideki Go after Dan Moroboshi and before Seiji Hokuto.

Five extra hands and MAT helmet

Medicom's RAH action figure Hideki Go strikes a fine pose. MAT's uniform seems less complicated than the rest.

The likeness is amazing because that's how I remembered Hideki Go looked like way back then. The "Return of Ultraman" was produced by Tsuburaya Productions and aired from April 21, 1971 to March 31, 1972.

The other accessory is the ray gun or laser gun used to combat the monsters (small yet powerful)

The belt and holster looks very simple and plain, unlike Seiji Hokuto's.

Hello! It's a great figure! But, does the helmet fit the head perfectly?

I have one. I've never been able to fit his helmet in his head.
The helmet looks small inside and I'm afraid to break it.
If someone were able to put the helmet in his head please let us know how.

I think you have to remove his hair to get the helmet on ...
