Transformation Items like Beta Capsule and Sparklence are used by a human or Ultra in human form to transform into an Ultraman. It is a super cool device but man, some of them can be quite clunky which I imagined would be a hassle to carry around.
Speaking of clunky, the Sparklence is perhaps one of the most clunky. Like, have you seen the size of that thing? It’s anything but convenient to carry around. But it would a different story if it can be worn on a wrist like the Ultraman Tiga Sparklence 3WAY Watch.
The Ultraman Tiga Sparklence 3WAY Watch is a real thing, btw. It is a thing money can buy; though not necessarily a thing that can transform you into an Ultraman Tiga.
But why “3WAY”. Well, that’s because, it can be worn on the wrist like a regular watch, carry like a pocket watch with a carabiner attachment, or placed on the desk as serving as a super cool desk clock. Like, how cool is that? I think it is super cool, IMHO, even though I am not a huge fan of Ultraman Tiga.
In case you are wondering, yes, the iconic wings-like cover closes and opens like the actual Transformation Item. However, it appears that it has to be done manually instead of pressing a button to open the cover.
The Sparklence body is made from a solid die-cast material and has a leather watch band as a wristwatch. The watch itself has a classic desk clock look and is powered by a Japan MITOYA quartz movement.
The Ultraman Tiga Sparklence 3WAY Watch is available to order from now till May 30, 2022, 23:59 hours for 33,000 yen (about US$261) from Benelic [JP], with shipping planned for in October.
