In the 5th Ultra Series produced by Tsuburaya Productions and aired from April 7, 1972 to March 30, 1973 as a tokusatsu TV show, Ultraman Ace is aided by the TAC in his battle with Alien Monsters which invade Earth. TAC stands for Terrible monster Attacking Crew (yeah, the Japanese were not so great with acronyms).
The mail-away piece for Medicom's Ultraman Ace was this 1/6 scale 12-inch figure of TAC member Seiji Hokuto, Ultraman Ace's human form.
Medicom's Seiji Hokuto comes with accessories including TAC helmet, three extra hands and TAC ray gun or laser gun
Are those nipples on his uniform? Is this where Joel Schumacher got the idea to put nipples on Batman's costume? Overall, nice uniform design. The Japanese seem to have a penchant for scarfs then, as every Kamen Rider had one.
TAC member Seiji Hokuto transforming into Ultraman Ace (a bit like the Wonder Twins from Superfriends, except for the twins, their powers were activated when the twins touched each other and spoke the words "Wonder Twin powers, activate!")
