Star Blazers the Movie

video

Put your hands up if you got home from school everyday and watched this. Sometime in the late 70's, early 80's I think it was. Well, it's back as a movie. AWESOME. And I found a company that does miniatures.

Some editional information about the plot for those who did not have a TV in their house

"In the distant future, the war between the human race and the Gamilon has taken its toll on the planet Earth. Constant bombardment of radioactive asteroids has rendered the planet's atmosphere uninhabitable. As a means of relief aid, Queen Starsha of the planet Iscandar offers the Earth Forces a device that can completely neutalize the radiation off the planet. For this task, the space battleship Yamato is launched from the remains of its World War II ancestor on a 148,000 light-year journey. However, the crew of the Yamato has only one Earth year to travel to Iscandar and back, or the human race will come to an end".

My hand stays down I am afraid. I think I missed this in the 80's, I was probably too busy digging holes.

Preview looks of interest though.

OK OK, I'll have to put my hand up. I didn't recognise the name but I remembered the ship. It was a cartoon I believe.
The trailer look pretty cool.

The lyrics are sensational. Great song of war. The Earth Defence Force are fighting the evil Gamilon Empire who are trying to destroy us for fun.

Trailer is fake. It's done by a fan. There are clips from Battlestar Galatica and Star Trek in it. Sorry lads.
