  1. Fourteen: https://gizmodo.com/doctor-who-14th-doctor-ncuti-gatwa-1848896896 Some articles have shots of him with a 'tache, which would be an interesting look. Turn-Doctor Turn, Turn-Doctor Turn, TURN-DOCTOOOORRRRR!!
  2. I sent this to a non-anime watching friend of mine and they asked if โ€œ20AUโ€ was some kind of typoโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜„
  3. For those of us on my side of the gaming pond, its been a celebratory month; that humble rubble-keyed wonder, the colour-clashing 8-bit icon, Uncle Clives most successful child, the working persons micro - the ZX Spectrum is 40 years old!
  4. Just to put an end to any future speculation, following recent events, the An-225 is definitely gone.
  5. At the time, electromagnetic catapaults were still a bit... that'll be nice. Someday. And it wasn't just the means of getting the aircraft off the carrier, it was the aircraft itself, the choice of which also included a proposed naval Typhoon... Today has been a good day for military aviation history buffs to have some fun:
  6. I can't criticise too much, my government delayed an aircraft carrier because it couldn't decide if it should have catapaults or not... ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. I try. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Though having been there, quite why Canada needs an air force in the first place baffles me, I've seen the mosquitoes in action... (er, the insects, not the Wooden Wonder), ๐Ÿ˜„
  8. So, after a good degree of... um... thinking, Canada has decided on the F-35 as its CF-18 replacement. I presume they will be getting the F-35EH variant. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. Oh, good grief, I had the original UK DVD release of that by... Kiseki? It was... lets just say, standards have improved. ๐Ÿ˜„ Article about the connection between "A-Ko" and another fan favourite from back in the day: https://www.zimmerit.moe/project-ako-urusei-yatsura-connection/ I got the "A-Ko" Blu-Ray the other day, its excellent. Haven't had time to go through the extras yet though.
  10. Thats really nice! So... when are you doing a Typhoon...? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. Now Lego are doing "Star Wars" dioramas, I wonder if "Cloud City Dinner Invite" will be on the list of future products?
  12. Thanks for confirming that. Would have been nice if they'd included something like the old board as well though.
  13. I can't justify it, but I want this almost more than I want an actual time-travelling DeLorean...! Kind of a shame the hoverboard doesn't have studs to place a figure on but I guess thats partly because of the sticker and partly because its scaled to the car, not a figure?
  14. Its a good breakdown, but they do seem to be under the impression that the F-15s are the STOL test type, rather than what are clearly a more futuristic variant designed for the movie (though undoubtedly with elements inspired by it).
  15. Well, scratch that. New photos have emerged. The An-225 is gone.
  16. New photos have emerged supposedly showing the An-225s tail sticking out of the hangar, though the hangar itself has been damaged at the front, so its just possible its not gone yet.
  17. Ah, thanks for clearing that up. I did wonder as I didn't recall A-Kos father wearing a yukata in the first movie nor her mothers hair being as light as that. Now I know why!
  18. Ah, somehow I've never noticed that (A-Kos Mums apron)! Like I said, every time I see it... ๐Ÿ˜ƒTheres also a bit of a clue in the paper her Dads reading too...
  19. Was it a "Wonder Woman" shirt? I remember her looking like Diana Prince, but in my memory its an off-brand "Superman" logo. I could be wrong though, as I'm going completely from memory.
  20. The weird thing about some of the Easter Eggs in A-Ko was that, at the time, I recognised some of them (the alien Captain being based on Harlock, for example) but it would be literally decades later before I saw the anime they were referencing! I only knew them because of articles in โ€œAnime UKโ€ magazine. The Captains drinking makes much more sense now Iโ€™ve actually seen โ€œCaptain Harlockโ€โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  21. Oh, hell, yes. Project A-Ko was one of the first "true" anime I saw, at a time when in the UK there were something like a total of three anime available - this, "Akira", and "Fist of the North Star" [1]. For a long time, it was THE standard by which I judged other anime, and I wore the VHS tape to death. It took a while to realise not all anime was of that quality. I also loved how on each re-watching I'd pick up another Easter Egg - A-Ko goes to school with Lum, for example... ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I have the DVD from some while back but didn't realise there was a Blu-Ray release. [1] Technically, there were some weird compilation tapes, various TV shows like "Battle of the Planets", and hybrids like "Mysterious Cities of Gold". And some mysterious people working out of a mythical place called Bangor doing something involving Bubblegum. Subtitled anime? That'll never catch on...
