I am wondering if 3B still has the rights tied up because of their "Tranzor z" version of the character.
    Mazinger Z and Great Mazinger are Go Nagai properties, aka Dynamic Productions (along with Dragun, Grendizer/Goldorak, Gaiking and a few others), and they are known as a bit expensive and difficult to work with (kind of like Toho) so that might be part of the issue (it's also the reason why Marvel's Shogun Warriors comics involved non-Nagai characters instead (Raydeen, Combattra and Danguard Ace). I was really looking forward to seeing this line but it doesn't look good right now.

    My concern is that at the last few shows, Super7 hasn't had prototypes, painted or unpainted or even signs talking about the line.

    Now that doesn't mean it's not happening necessarily, but it does seem odd to show off prototypes at one event and then the next couple of events not at least continue to show those. Makes me think there is some sort of issue.

    That said, I'm hopeful that since they at least got to the prototype stage, that it will be worked out. I just wish there was a good way to let Super7 know that people were interested in these.
