Exclusive unused Mospeada design image!
Behold! From the files of Roger Harkavy at Super7 Magazine, a Roboblog exclusive look at the AFC/R-02 ground combat Legioss, an unused mecha design from Genesis Climber Mospeada. (Click to enlarge!) As Roger remarked when he e-mailed this to me ...
This is a photo of a sample colorway sheet, black and white photocopied line art detailed with color marker. This sheet, along with 100 other pieces of MOSPEADA and Southern Cross pre-production art, was discovered in a warehouse in Japan, among the files of the now defunct model kit company Imai.
Super7 Magazine issue #15 will feature an article about MOSPEADA and Southern Cross toys. The article includes six pieces of artwork from the Imai Files and a glimpse into additional pre-production materials that give new insight into the background of these shows. If fans would like to see the rest of these materials in print one day, please encourage them to spread the word and support the magazine by buying this issue.
And I do encourage you to buy it, oh yes. Seriously, if any place around here carried the blasted thing, I know I'd be buying it every three months or thereabouts (it's quarterly). Clicky-click here to their website.
Oh, and Roger says he doesn't want to see this pic flitting about the interweb -- actually, what exactly did he say?
... please include something to the effect that I would prefer that the image remain exclusive to your blog, and that people avoid copying, distributing, remote linking, or modifying the image. I know that they're probably going to do this anyway, but that's why I have my copyright and email address plastered across the front.
Ah, that's right. So please don't do that, okay? (And for those who were complaining, Roger has updated the copyright info for accuracy.)
More stuff later.
