    Premium Bandai, the official mail order site of Bandai Namco, is now accepting pre-orders for the "Ultra Replica X Devizer" (ウルトラレプリカ エクスデバイザー, Urutora Repurika Ekusu Debaizā), a replica of the transformation device used by Daichi Oozora (played by Kensuke Takahashi) in Tsuburaya Productions' 2015 series ULTRAMAN X  (ウルトラマンX, Urutoraman Ekkusu).

A voice recognition gimmick, which was not included in the DX version, has been added to help fans recreate the frequent conversations between Daichi and Ultraman X that took place during the show.

    In addition to the device itself, the Ultra Replica X Devizer comes with an Ultraman X Spark Doll as used by Daichi to transform into Ultraman X, plus six Cyber Cards used to create the hero's various MonsArmor.


    Transformation Gimmick

    When the switch on the top of the X Devizer is pressed, the left and right wings deploy into an "X" shape. When the Spark Doll's "Live Sign" is read by the main unit, the transformation sound is triggered and the user can transform into Ultraman X. The post-transformation sound effects are also enhanced, and will include the Ultraman X shouts, various special moves, and color timer sounds actually used in the show.

    Furthermore, six different armor changes and special moves can be activated by using the included Cyber Cards. As a bonus, the transformation sequence into "Hybrid MonsArmor"as seen in the final episode of the show is recreated for the first time in a toy, along with the "Ultimate Xanadium" special attack.


    Voice Recognition Gimmick

    With its built-in microphone, the Ultra Replica X Devizer offers a voice recognition gimmick that allows the user to speak specific phrases and receive a response from Ultraman X. Lead actor Kensuke Takahashi has provided his voice to more than 60 different lines of dialogue between Daichi and X, and seven background aongs from the series can also be played at the touch of a button.

    Additional Cyber Cards and other peripheral items compatible with Ultra Replica X Devizer are scheduled to be released in the near future. Please stay tuned for more information.
