Product Description

A massive Ultraman Monster modeled on Godzilla. Stands nearly a foot high and very heavy. An amazing addition to an Ultraman collection!

Jirass (ジラース, Jirāsu?) (alternate spelling "Jiras") is a fictional kaiju from the tokusatsu TV series, Ultraman. The suit of the monster is actually a loosely disguised Godzilla suit, the same one used for the first Ultra Kaiju, Gomess. In the episode he was created by Nikaido, a mad scientist, and later faced and was defeated by Ultraman.

Subtitle: Frilled Monster (えりまき怪獣, Erimaki Kaijū?).

Jirass was created by a mad scientist who based his research on the Loch Ness Monster and let him swim freely in Lake Kitayama. The monster was later awakened by heavy fishing in the lake and after destroying a fishing boat came ashore and battled the Science Patrol. Hayata transformed into Ultraman and battled against the monster, after first Jirass demonstrated his power by hurling a rock into the air and destroying it with his electricity, only to have Ultraman mimic him with his Specium Ray.

Afterwards the two engaged in battle winding up with Ultraman injuring Jirass by ripping off his frill and wrestling him to the ground. Ultraman then charged forward at Jirass and struck him with a swift blow to the chest causing blood to drip down from its mouth before falling over, dead. Then in a shocking moment in the series, Ultraman felt sympathy for the monster, placing the frill back on Jirass's neck and even offering a brief moment of silence before flying away. This sign of respect was never shown with any other monster in the series.
