Roger Harkavy is a font of useful information; he delivers the goods, like Santa.
Matt Alt talks to Mospeada mecha designer (and Appleseed director) Shinji Aramaki for Otaku USA here. This is part one of two, which also appears in the November issue of the corresponding print magazine. Part two will be out next month.
Yaco provides a side-by-side comparison of the Toynami Alpha Fighter and the Aoshima Legioss here. Shame the Aoshima toys are so shoddy -- Yaco's photography sure as heck makes that blue Legioss look nice.
And Toynami's new offerings, previously tentatively slated for right about now, are now, according to ToyFare, slated as follows:
Shadow Chronicles Alpha Fighters -- Winter
New Generation Beta Fighter -- Spring
New Generation Cyclones -- Summer
Interestingly, they're saying it's going to be Scott Bernard, Lancer, and Sue Graham's Cyclones again -- just like that first announcement.
Also, the article says something about a Shadow Chronicles video game. Is this Wizard Entertainment not knowing what the hell they're talking about again, or have they just spilled the beans? Hmm. One must wonder.
