Tomica #45, Mazda Cosmo Sport as a Ultraman movie car.


This my only car that relate to Ultraman my super hero. This #45 Mazda COSMO Sport is made by Tomica in a small little yellow & black box. Brought at Hong Kong back in 2005. It is very detail too. It has the logo on the front & a Cosmo word next to the left side front lamp, a Mazda word at the back of the car & not to mansion the MAT wording and the red stripes all over the car.





The first Mazda to bear the Cosmo name is 110S was first 2-rotor rotary engine powered series car. A prototype was introduced at the 1964 Tokyo Motor Show, and 80 pre-production Cosmos were produced for the Mazda test department (20) and for dealership testing (60) between 1965 and 1966. Full production began in May 1967 and lasted through 1972, though Cosmos were built by hand at a rate of only about one per day. The car was also featured in the show Return of Ultraman.



Ultraman's creator was Eiji Tsuburaya from Tsuburaya Productions, a pioneer in special effects who was responsible for bringing Godzilla to life in 1954. The show original run was at July 17, 1966 – April 9, 1967. I wasn't born yet .

Those swirling colors that opened the show and the weird music always got me excited as a kid. Ultraman was simply awesome, and although I have not seen the show in over thirty years I can hear him yelling "Hyata" and see the red dotted laser lines emanating from his crossed arms. That ever slowing flashing heart. When I was a kid last time, Ultraman teach me that evil and wrong are to be put down, even at the risk of personal sacrifice. "Hyata!"
