Vintage Collection: Ultraman | ウルトラマン Family Poster Set (circa 1970’s)

IMAG2887   Back in the early 80’s, 1981-ish, I had a “friend”. Well I thought he was a friend. I was more his friend than he was mine. That is either here nor there. He let me borrow this awesome poster set while he borrowed a prized comic book of mine. It was a Captain America that I had picked up from 7-11 the week before. It was drawn by one of my favorite artists, John Byrne. Many times I attempted to make contact with this kid, but he had moved away. He stayed in contact with a few others I knew but blew me off.

   In hindsight, I got the better part of the deal, obviously. Heck, I replaced that copy of Captain America vol. 1 #254. Couple that with what I am about to share, well I think I came out on top. I don’t know a lot about the set but it features the Ultraman Family up to that point in time. It also shows a ton of the monsters (kaiju) that they fought.

   With no further ado, I present to you the ultimate Henshin Heroes (no offense, Kamen Riders), Tsuburya’s very own…

ULTRAMAN, err men, errrrr people.

BB-8 Rolls Out in New ‘#StarWarsTheForceAwakens’ Images ~ via Spinoff [D]

   “Director J.J. Abrams, star John Boyega and the droid BB-8 are showcased in three new images from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.'”

   I cannot wait to see this new droid and how he fits into the story. Seeing it for the first time, almost, was like seeing R2 when I was seven. Except, of course, I am a lot more used to seeing droids now than I was in 1977. Will BB-8 drive the story like the original droids did, or will he simply be the new comedy relief for those times when the tension gets too high? Time will tell. [D]
