Does anyone else remembering having their hopes and dreams shattered by the shambling mess of a movie that was GUNHED?

Well, There was a limited exhibition for the movie held in Akihabara last weekend.

Unlike most exhibits in Japan, photos were allowed at this one, so I went all out. Of course, one of the best pieces of art in the exhibit was by Hidetaka Tenjin :)

Hope these don't bring back too many bad memories :p

It hurts but there's always the manga. If you really think about it... Gunhed was there to prepare you for all the disappointments of Manga/Anime>Live action film expectations. So it was still ahead of the curve! :lol:

Tenjin art rules!

There's a new book, too.

"Gunhed Perfection" (we should HOPE for so much...)

I got that book. There's a two-page interview with Kawamori in it. A reasonable amount of concept artwork too.

The movie was a mess, but I liked it. Seeing as I hadn't read the whole manga, just a bit in Newtype, I didn't have any expectations of what to expect.

Thanks a lot for the pics, Tochiro. :)

Cool LEGO model, Shaorin. B))

Despite many of the shots being poorly lit and composed, I liked the movie. The manga by Kia Asamiya is better (and I particularly like it for the fact that this was when Kia Asamiya was still drawing by hand).

I'm trying to remember which actually came first, the movie or the manga. I think the manga was adapted from the movie, but I'm not 100% sure.

The manga's version of Aerobot was definitely much better looking than its movie counterpart.

the movie originated as a script for a follow up to the 1984 Return of Godzilla film. Toho at the time held a story contest to decide the plot of the next film. What would eventually be turned into Gunhed lost to the Godzilla vs Biolante script.

Whoa thank you for all those cool photos. I've never seen the movie but the artbook was my very first one.

I wonder what's inside the new book, is it a re-release of the first edition?
