I’m not really into Devilman, but always love the action figures and sofubis like this based on the character.
I’m assuming here that “late stage” refers to the costume worn toward the end of the Marc Rocco’s original run with the gimmick.
Can you really consider your toy collection complete if it doesn’t have a sofubi of Satan Beetle from Ultraman Leo? I didn’t think so.
This Sol Machine Man sofubi is an effort to bring to life a classic image from 1930s pulp sci-fi author, Neil Jones, best known for his Professor Jameson series published in Amazing Stories and other outlets.
In Jones’ story, Professor Jameson is the last human and has his brain placed inside a robotic body by a cyborg-based civilization. The figure is a reproduction of the cover for the last Professor Jameson story to appear in Amazing Stories in April 1938.
Sofubi version of the eponymous hero of the early 1970s Mirrorman.
