Ever wanted a real life mecha suit? Ever wanted one for your kid? Now you can have both, as long as money isn’t an issue. (And who has to worry about not having enough money for anything when your Bruce Wa….ahem I mean Tony St…..oh well I’m not either of them so I guess its a few light years out of my budget.) BUT, they exist. This one in the image is a mech suit for kids. If your going to hand down your mecha suit to your kid don’t you want them growing up using one? Its even got a cute drill and grappling claw. Check out the videos after the break to check out the two mecha suits.
Remember when the origional Pokemon games came out. Mewtwo was the last legendary to catch and most of you saved your one Master Ball just for that battle. Even the first Pokemon movie featured this Pokemon and his backstory and relation to Mew. It made this Pokemon special, it had a story of misunderstanding and hardship. We got to love and aww at this Pokemon. Little has been heard since the first Generation of Pokemon about Mewtwo. Most of the other 151 have gotten some eveloutions or preeveloutions. Now the first of the origional Legindarys gets a facelift. Is this an eveloution or just a new form? We will just have to wait and see in the new Pokemon movie. This guy will also be in the new games so it will be interesting to see how the transformation is invoked, item? eveloution? or battle only transform? Check out some videos below from Nintendo.
Why is Gendo shaving you ask? Because he has a thick beard and sensitive skin. He also shares this with Shinji. If your wondering WTF, it is an ad campaign in Japan for Schick to advertise the Hydro 5 razor. They are giving figures away with each Hydro 5 razor. There are razor stand figures (Rei and Asuka come with the basic Hydro 5 and EVA-01 and Mark 06 come with the battery powered Hydro 5) and they also have earphone jack accessory mini figures with other sets. These figures can be seen in the videos below along with the special clock you can get by collecting 3 points from the Hydro 5 serial code stickers. The EVA-01 stand looks the coolest to me and that clock is awesome. Japan always gets the coolest stuff. Check out the videos after the break.
Acclaimed director of movies such as Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy, Guillermo del Toro, is developing Urasawa’s famous Manga “Monster” into a possible television series for HBO. Del Toro and Steven Thompson (Dr. Who, Sherlock) are writing the pilot with Del Toro directing. No news yet on when we will be able to see it come to TV but I am pretty damn excited, Monster is an amazing thriller and would fit really well as a live action TV show.
Another great year for another great convention. I have watched Anime Milwaukee grow into something great from its small beginnings. They are doing a lot of things right and imporoving on the things they can work on. Let just say if you haven’t been to AMKE yet then its about time you throw them in your calender on one of the must go to cons.
Did you watch Gatchaman growing up? Is it one of your favorite classic animes? If you have never seen or heard of this, WATCH IT!!! Its great. It came out in Japan in the early 70s and ran for 105 episodes, had an animated film and two sequel series in the late 70s. Fun fact, since this came out at the start of anime popularity in the US, the title was changed (called Battle of the Planets), scenes were cut and replaced with new US animated segments, and the dialog was changed. But the originals were released in 2005 uncut and re-translated (this is “closer” to the original). Thank Goodness!! Now they are producing a Live action movie set to come out in Japan this year. Check out a preview and some details after the break.
