    Those are all Japanese & endemic throughout Asia. Kids in HK love them as much as kids here.

    Ultra man was popular when I was kid.

    Is it still going strong or was it reborn for this generation?

    Ultraman is big business and has been keeping pace with the times. There is a new movie being made, partly in Thailand. Last year Future Park had a large Ultraman feature for a week or so with characters lining the entrance and a large display inside. Ultraman Jack seems the most popular.
