Super Festival 67 - Ultraman Leo Exhibition / スーパーフェスティバル 67 - ウルトラマンレオ展

One of the highlights of Super Festival 67 was an exhibition of Ultraman Leo goods. A single cabinet contained a beautifully curated collection of toys, books, models, scripts, and other items related to the show. Here's a detailed look at the cabinet.

Gorgeous assortment of sofubi toys
 More after the jump:

Mini chogokin vehicles

Cool tin toys

One of my favorite items from the exhibition. Ultraman is on a ride along, but check out the driver. His face is drawn on the windshield, and his profile is drawn on the driver's door window. So you can see him from both angles. Bravissimo!

Episode scripts on the right

No caption, but perhaps something worn by a Monster Attack Crew member.

I love this MAC briefcase set. You've got a gun (with firing pellets, maybe (see the top left)), watch, badge, radio, and more!

Picture books, records, coloring books, etc.

Original character sketches, vehicle drawing, and notes!

Fantastic newspaper clippings.
Maru menkos!
Last but not least, here's a photo I took of Ultraman Leo himself, Mr. Ryu Manatsu (on the right). at the end of the talk show.
Super Festival does a great job inviting tokusatsu actors to the show and building events around them. Along with talk shows, there are signings, exhibitions, and sometimes limited toys and T-shirts. It's one of the things that makes the show one of the best in Japan.
