The Tokusatsu Thread - Asian Live-Action Special Effects

Postby sdsichero » Wed Jun 18, 2008 2:47 pm

Well we had the "Why I Don't Like Power Rangers" thread at the 'rama so I am hoping some folks would be interested in a similar thread here. This thread is basically for discussing tokusatsu (eg. henshin heroes, kaiju, sentai, etc). So welcome any fans.

I asked my friend in Japan to pick up a few issues of the Kamen Rider Official Data File (http://www.de-club.net/kmr/) for me. I just got the first two and they are pretty cool. Here are some sample pages:

Cover to first issue (bonus half price):
Image

Cover to second issue:
Image

Back cover to second issue:
Image

Series Guide intro page:
Image

A sample character page:
Image

Side 2 of character page:
Image

A sample villain page:
Image

Side 2 of villain page:
Image

Each issue will have items covered (eg. bikes, weapons):
Image

Image

There are also notes (eg. pre-show sketches, ideass on series, etc)
Image

So, pretty dang cool overall. Only problem? Over 100 issues and it comes out weekly. Dunno if I can afford or store all of it... :(

Anyone else got stuff to share/chat?

Since it'd take like a week to be able to post a reply at the Rama....
That looks nice. V3 looks like he's playing airplane and we see monster boobie with a tattoo on it.

WHAT?!?! No Kamen Rider Next or Kiva?!?!
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

Hmn not sure why it takes so long for you to get to stuff at 'rama. I don't like the interface much, but it doesn't take me that long. Must be something Canadian. :P

I knew you'd like the monster boobie.

So far no Rider Next or Kiva, but there are still some 80 or so issues to go...

Godzilla/Gojira rules. Xavier was asking about it last night. I might even see if he wants to watch one soon. He likes the Iron Giant a lot...not sure how he'd take the SFX of a kaiju film, though.

Hmnn I love Gojira & Gamera... If he can't take live action Japanese monster movies, how about a CGI one? It's sort of a tribute to the 50s sci-fi movies... Negadon!!!

"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

Maybe it still exists, but I'm not sure, back around the year 2000 my friend had some tapes from a wrestling league where people dressed up in rubber monster costumes and did ECW-style hardcore wrestling matches in a ring set up to look like a miniature version of New York.

Does anyone have any clue what I'm talking about? If so do you have any clue what it's called? I've been trying to figure this out for years because it was fucking awesome.

Thanks.
