The sad thing is Japanese live action shows haven't improved any in 30+ years. I remember TNT showing Ultra Seven at 6am in the 90s when i was getting ready to skip school...er I mean go to school.

Gone but not forgotten.
Maguma Taishi - and I'm not a fan - I LIVE for the show - I've been obsessed with it since I was a little kid. How can you now love this -

Here's a kit I picked up at Wonderfestival in Tokyo about 2 years ago

And i WILL NOT rest until I write and direct the Hollywood reboot.

Sorry if I got a little carried away with the pics - but I rarely get to flex my Taishi muscle in here.

Does anyone know who the "Superhost" was and the show he hosted? It was an older guy dressed in a superhero suit, and he would introduce kid shows on Saturday mornings.

I lived over in Youngstown, but we picked up that station. That was great. And they played The Great Space Coaster on weekdays too. I miss that stuff!!

once we got cable, I did!. 3 stooges re-runs then usually a double feature. I loved his bumpers..."The Moronic Woman" and Convoy stand out. My child mind was blown the first time I saw him filling in for the weekend anchor out of character.
I wish local stations still had their movie hosts.

Now that we're in the 21st century, do all japanese super-heros have satellite dishes on their heads, to replace the rabbit ears, of yester-year? :lol:lol:lol

Due to Trademark, they are having trouble selling DVDs. It is supposed to be in the Public domain now, but the seller on Ebay who was selling sets keeps getting kicked off. So they set up a website to discuss the ongoing battle and why they cannot sell them on Ebay.

Check it out:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

I just read the link I provided above.
To get around the selling issues, you can buy a comic issue and they "give" you the 11 DVD set free:

The original 1979 Space Giants comic (Copyright filed June 18th 1979 #VA-27-210) is still available for $59.95, signed by artist/writer/ PD Angel Gabriele, while supplies last.
Price includes The 11 DVD or VHS 52 episode set for FREE

Here's a pic of some of my collection (most is in storage) but you can see gam's Helmet I made out of a child's toy New York Jets helmet the little one I did from a bank I found at a garage sale - they're not perfect but I'm guilty of staring at them for hours. I'd wanted one since i was little. The Gam rocket is a custom done by a friend, made from balsa wood (just like the ones used on the show) measuring at 10in long. Gam was always my favorite - When i was 7 I used to have a red vest and blue pants I wore till they fell apart, pretending I was Gam. There is very little out there for the live action show by way of collecting - most of the stuff you find is designed after Tesuka's Manga which I do pick up - but the live action show is where it's at.
