Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

I think Alita looks nearly perfect. Just change the skin texture so it looks a bit more artificial, or perhaps make the eyes look a tad more cybernetic. And I hope she gets the lines/war paint under her eyes! By the way, I really want to know what MooV thinks of the design that Cameron/Rodriguez wen...

Re: A sad day on the forum today.

Sergio Nova provided so much to this amazing (yet obscure) community over the years. When I saw his name on a post, I knew I was about to read a well thought out piece from a huge Gunnm fan.

Rest In Peace, and love and prayers to all Sergio’s loved ones as well.

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 021 (part 1) Is out!

With this talk of Gally's face, I'm reminded of how I have no idea why Kishiro decided to give her a face so different (less pretty / cute imo ), starting in Last Order. LO volumes 1-3 kept her face at least having some similarities with her original series faces, but even in Last Order 1 to 3 I imm...

Re: What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

There are also newer and better (IMHO) GKs of Alita: http://myfigurecollection.net/item/143224 http://myfigurecollection.net/item/167381 http://myfigurecollection.net/item/330934 These aren't very old like the kit you are looking for, thus it should be less difficult to find them.

Re: What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

There isn't much information about the original maker http://myfigurecollection.net/item/26656 GKs are usually made in very limited quantities and sold only at conventions in Japan and this kit is very old. You can see that it is based on the character design of the OAV released back in 1993 https:...

Re: Apparently Cameron has three candidates for the lead role in Alita: Battle Angel...

Do you know what James Cameron's level of involvement with this movie will be? I still think Cameron won't be able to resist basically co-directing Alita: Battle Angel. He'll want to make sure it's as awesome as the movie he's had in his head for so many years. Or at least that's what I hope. As of ...

Re: What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

Anyway, I'm confused as to why you said pre-painted kits were never made. By pre painted I mean a figure you only have to take it out of the box and display, because it is all assembled and painted. Except for a small articulated figure and a doll, there was never a figure of Alita pre painted and ...

Re: What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

You won't find any original pre-painted figure of Alita to buy because none were ever made. The only option is to buy one of those unassembled kits and paint it by yourself or pay someone skilled to do. I'm confused why you think these resin kits were never sold new. Here's a picture of the box jus...

Re: GLO 111 Raw

Seems like the story is heading towards a "reboot"? Granted I've not followed the past few chapters too closely, but I think it would be great if the story returns to more human-scale drama and shorter story arcs a'la the original series.

Re: What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

I'm selling my "Hyper Future Vision Gunnm" doushinji as I am in need of money. I originally purchased it on Ebay in 2005 for about $100. I believe this doushinji is quite rare: I have not seen it for sale on Ebay again since 2005 (although I may have missed it). http://www.ebay.com/itm/Battle-Angel-...

Re: GLO 103

Last Order is like a weird hybrid between Shonen and Seinen. It seems that ever since vol.3 or 4 he's gone out of his way to appeal to the kiddie set for some reason. And he does seem to be consciously avoiding the darker stuff from the original series. Ido in a box? the tragic death of Alita's "fir...
