Buyers beware!

Every time you pick up a piece of Ultraman merchandise at a store, take a few seconds to study the product tags, as they may not be an official licensed product.

[PSA: Differentiating Between #Ultraman Products] Buyer beware. Every time you pick up a piece of Ultraman merchandise at a store, take a few seconds to study the product tags. If they contain any traces of UM Corporation (UMC as pictured) or TIGA Entertainment, then they have not been granted the Business Merchandising License from #Tsuburaya Productions to produce Ultraman-related products. If you’re truly sincere about being a fan of Ultraman, you would know that this is wrong and not approved by Tsuburaya Productions, the copyright owner of Ultraman and all related products. Instead, look out for the circular label (sticker or printed) on the item’s tag that indicates that the item has, at least at one point in time, been officially licensed by Tsuburaya Productions. Most, if not all, Ultraman-related merchandise will carry this label. Even if our feelings cannot help win a court case, we can certainly do our part to help by not putting any more money in Chaiyo/UM Corporation/TIGA Entertainment’s pockets.

Let it be known that Ultraman belongs to ONLY Tsuburaya Productions.

Ultraman does NOT belong to UMC, TIGA, Taigaco, or anyone named Chaiyo, who has a history of trying to (unethically) claim some of the characters as their own.

To share this post is to inform people and keep them from being suckered in. Thank you!
