    Aug 15, 2009, 10:36 PM - ULTRAMAN / Working Beta Capsule. Yes, working!! #1

    I cleaned up my old Beta capsule today. I'd forgotten how well it works with the right crap in it!

    I shot a few pics... Figured I'd share.

    You guys are too darn funny. What a great prop. I've never seen one of these. God, I love those cheesy imports from back in the day: Ultraman, Johnny Sakko and Space Giants. Great stuff!

    Thanks guys.

    A rather simple rig on this. It's really just a self contained flash pot that can be loaded with anything from flash paper to powder. You can also use old flash bulbs if you remove the glowplug.

    NICE!!

    NOTE: All of these were built from the same run. Gian provided some great reference for what we had at the time.

    My bad, sorry Rylo. I guess 10 years has softened my memory.

    It's still my Dream-Prop & the reason I joined the RPF.

    Wow, that is an incredible recreation! I don't suppose you know anyone willing to sell one, or if this Hyata99 still makes them?

    My 3 and 7 year olds would KILL for this. I just got them into Ultraman 1966 era. My 3 year old calls me Hayata and my 7 year old will not uncross his arms until I fall over the couch in a heap.

    SHIACH !

    If anyone does one of these let me know or let me know where can find parts or a toy thats close enough.

    I am in the same boat as you Ken. I would love to get my hands on one of these. I got my boys into UltraMan and now my 4 year old has taken to using my nose hair trimmer as his beta capsule.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's awesome. Mine improvised with a Bakugan launcher, but yours win hands down!

    Anyone with ideas on beta capsules let me know.

    I was lucky enough to get one of these babies from a friend of mine in Tokyo for X-Mas - Thank God he got me one because there's no chance I would have found one anywhere during my visit this summer -
    They only made a limited few that sold out online in a few hours. This was made using the 1 surviving screen used Beta Capsule as a guide - . I've seen them going for 2g now - yeesh





    Here's a video showing off what it does
