This show screams action figure line. Always wished that Takara would've done a Microman Star Blazers line since all three originated out of Japan. Also wished Mego could've gotten the license back in the late 70's. Although there was a line produced in Japan around the time that SB hit the US, but the toys never made it over here that I know of. Not in my area at least.

Hmmmm....

It's another good one.... someone did customs of the crew from the original show and they looked awesome! But there'd be SO MANY legal hoops to jump through for the rights it'd probably price them out of the range of most folks.

Outside of Lustice league Unlimited, the best animated series ever made. I'd be all over a line of these, but yes the licensing would logistically be ridiculous.

Star Blazers would be cool, they could even use the Star Trek Bridge playset with new artwork for the Bridge of the Argo (I did custom figures a while back and have been working on small improvements as well as the bridge).

I've seen your customs. Cool stuff.

I've seen your customs. Cool stuff.. Thanks, If I ever get good enough at sculpting I want to make more accurate heads for them. the suits worked pretty well, and I've found a . . . unique way of making weapons which fit there hands. Would be awesome to see some official Star Blazers figures released.

The Japanese stuff is good practice for sculpting. Simpler designs, but requiring more conciseness to pull them off effectively. I'd suggest using something like Super Sculpey for the originals, smoothed with water and a cotton swab.

Thanks for the tip, If I can get a smooth finish using water and a swab that's half my problem right now.

I've been trying to do those characters myself but the anime heads are difficult to sculpt. I did a reasonably good Dr. Sane tho. Haven't any pics to post yet tho.
