    Aug 17, 2010, 8:33 PM - Space Battleship ヤマト Yamato #1

    While visiting Japan this year my 5yr old daughter had one thing on her mind -- Hello Kitty Land. So, as much as it pained my son, a day would be spent revisiting (we had to go last year as well) the park - giving up a day of toy and kit hunting, which my little girl puts up with all the time . Yep, this would be her day -- or so she believed.


    Once inside we rode the rides and ate custard cakes and candy, then we turned a corner and BOING! There was the display - don't ask me what this was doing in a place filled with talking cupcakes and magic shoes - but to both me and my son it was like an oasis.

    These are the actual costumes and props used the new movie. Luckily my Japanese has gotten good enough that i learned from the man next to me (who was also taking pictures) that the props were on tour in Japan - and somewhere there was a 14ft long version of the Yamato out on display - if you found that, you could enter your name to WIN THE DARN THING!!! sigh. Anyway - here are the pics i managed to get while my daughter was pulling on my shirt - hope you like them.

    The helmets look a lot like the ones in NuBSG.

    Coolness!! Dunno why they had to go with projectile weapons instead of laser pistols.
    And Nova/Yuki Mori was French, I thought...

    Oh, to have that 14' Yamato...drool.

    That's some pretty awesome stuff. I was hoping there would be a few pictures of the pistols they carry to see how much of the original version (which looks pretty awesome as a resin model) was kept in the movie version.

    I wonder if the Japanese production company making this realize they have such a ready made and willing global market for their product?

    Give it time... If it does well (as I assume it will), some US distributor will pick it up. At the very least, watch the Anime conventions next year, I bet it shows up in at least one of them... (Hopefully Anime Expo).

    (Of course, subtitled versions I'm sure will turn up on the internet soon enough...)

    I joked with a friend that the fan sub would be out within 3 hours of it hitting theatres.

    Looks like we'll have to wait for it to come out and see. At least more pictures. I would love to see the merchandizing they are doing for this..

    Cool pics! The bronzish box with the latches and handles on the side is a US Military food container; a Mermite.

    A bit of quick research shows that Steven Tyler contributes a song "Love Lives" to the soundtrack

    AND,

    There is a short trailer. YouTube -

    And the NEW long trailer. This is what Armageddon WISHES it was. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyb_p...layer_embedded

    If you cannot hear that final music and tear up a bit as a child of the 1980's you are in fact, clinically dead.

    I think I just wet my pants, Captain Avatar......
