|Classic 70's Art.|
The following videos are the American and Japanese openings to Star Blazers Series One: The Quest For Iscandar.
The Yamato 2199 series is fine art that an adult, who fortunately retained their inner child, can thoroughly appreciate and enjoy. This remake is faithful to the original story, but it manages to improve on just about everything in the telling. This is a triumph of realistic heroes, over the top villains, and believable science. You will laugh and you will cry... it IS that damn good!
|The New Yamato, And She Never Looked Better!|
This is the New Series One remake opening, appropriately renamed as Space Battleship Yamato 2199. For my friends who have never seen Yamato 2199 I am including the three cool Alternate Openings, which are down and dirty rocking, and full of extra character moments and serious action! How could you not love this Epic Space Opera?
GAMING YAMATO 2199.
|The New 1/1000 Scale Yamato Is 12 Inches Long, Just The Right Size To Look Great And Maneuver In Games!|
I recently rediscovered Star Blazers as Space Battleship Yamato 2199, while researching some information about models on Google. I of course found the entire series within minutes, and have watched it all this week, and loved every minute of it!
Needless to say...I have decided to start collecting ALL of The New Bandai 1/1000 Scale Space Battleship Yamato 2199 Models.
I am going to apply the awesome FFG STAR WARS X-WING approach to gaming Star Blazers battles. It should be easy enough to use these fine core rules and to write my own where necessary. This is going to be hell of a lot of fun!
I am rather happy about not knowing of all the new Star Blazers Yamato 2199 products until a few weeks ago, because during the last year during my ignorance, there has been an entire range of excellent models released to build complete Astro Fleets!
Black Six Red Seven will now focus on Dogfights and Epic Battles in both The Star Wars and Star Blazers universes. There is nothing like doubling your fun...
I'm off to (a different part of) outer space!
