Mazinger Z

Post by o.o » Thu Aug 28, 2003 4:33 pm

o.o Just wondering if anyone here has seen Mazinger Z or Mazinkaiser images anywhere. I've looked all over the net, and nothing. Maybe Gears should stick a Mazinger Section up. With Mazinkaiser coming out in the USA, Mazinger should gain some fans.

If you've seen images, PM me o.o. I've looked all over.

A U.S. release? Now I'm interested. I found 2 decent artbooks of Shin Getter Robo a while back. I haven't seen any for the new Mazinger OAV series. Anyone know where they can be bought?

The only real images I can find are photos of toys and model kits. I think some art books will be available before long.

Yeap. Mazinkaiser OAV. I saw it on Amazon, and a friend of mine owns it. I'm gonna pick it up myself. Until then, I held myself over with redoing the Geocities site up for Getter, Mazinger, Grendizer and the bunch. I'm going to find some artbooks or so as well. As far as Mazinger Artbooks... I haven't seen any, but they're bound to exist. I curse myself for not buying Super Robot Wars Alpha o.x

That's the URL for Hobby Link Japan's Mazinger Bible, 504 pages for $30. I don't own a copy as I'm a little strapped for resources these days. If you buy it please let me know what you think of it.

Otaku.com let me know about a Mazinkaiser book but they said it's out of print. I guess you have to act fast when those art books hit the shelves.

Otaku.com put the Mazinkaiser book on order for me:

Description : Mazinkaiser MEMORIAL BOOK
Price : 34.95

They didn't guarantee they'd find it but they're looking.

Awesome. Hope we can look foreward to some scans. Mazinkaiser is in my opinion the coolest Mazinger Series bot o.o. It should be cool to see what the Mazinkaiser book has to offer.
