Star Blazers!

It's a better sounding post title than Battleship Yamato ヤマト but this trailer for a live action movie (done by Japan, not Hollywood!) looks pretty darn awesome!

Is it just me, or does the Commander who says, "そだ、ヤマトだ。" (So da, Yamato da) look like a Thunderbirds-esque Supermarionation character? Btw, for some history on Yamato, try this old post.

I've been waiting to see the recent animated version, but haven't been able to yet. This should whet your appetite:

I've posted this before, but here is a Lego version of Yamato being constructed!

Once I find a few more of my toys, I'll give you a peek.

That trailer is awesome!!! I just got the single for the anime version by The Alfee. They do a cool cover of the original theme for a b-side.

I hope to see the anime version shortly. I'd like to compare it to the live one.
I'll be on the lookout for the Alfee!
