    Thanks to a friend I now own this NOS promotional inflatable from the Japanese theatrical release of the Lensman anime film (1984). Only the second one Ive seen in 24+ years. Not something Id normally collect but I love the film & series (as well as the original 1930s pulp stories!) and cant imagine there are many out there.

    Holy flashback! I've loved Lensman for years. The first anime to have CGI in it!

    Oooh nice one @spacemonkey66! I'm a bit of a clothes whore so I got myself some new kicks (vintage running style Nikes of course!) via YJA and this cool Ebbets Field Flannels sweatshirt of the Tokyo Giants to go with my other one lol.

    Picked up the complete 'Starship Troopers' anime OVA by Sunrise on VHS. This great miniseries remains in limbo due to licensing issues.

    the colors are still super vibrant, there are some small holes in the cross folds, but otherwise it's great, no stains or tears. I will probably eventually get it mounted on linen, which almost completely removes the visible folds and small holes. But it is very expensive to do, so for now I have a frame on the way and will leave it as is for a little while.

    It is gigantic, I mean i knew the dimensions when I bought it, but imaginging a 5 foot tall poster in your head and then actually getting it are two different things.

    Wow! Great poster. Your dog seems into it, but it appears your cat doesn't give a shit. Typical.

    @JoeMan Wow that's awesome! I just watched that movie the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it. Poster looks massive, hope you can find an affordable framing option. Post a pic when it's on the wall please!

    yeah, i've found alot of places, the frames don't go large enough. But i found a place that does custom framing for a lot of standard oversized cinema posters. http://www.spotlightdisplays.com. Unfortunately the frame tends to cost more than the actual poster.

    Once it's hanging i'll get a shot of it on the wall.

    Yeah man, the frame and the mounting cost me three time more than the actual posters. But do it so it’s preserved and done right to avoid any damage. You won’t regret it. Esp here in the east where the climate changes the print needs to shrink and expand the mounting on fiber is necessary.

    E.T. ....the Korean anime version! Picked this up with a plethora of other South Korean rip-off anime, live action, and vintage South Korean horror flicks (surprisingly hard to find... the stuff from the 70s and 80s at least. SK has had a good horror game goin since the mid 90s)

    @FrankensteinsRobot, I have never heard of this. It looks amazing. Here's hoping there's an English subbed version buried online somewhere.

    Unfortunately this is not available anywhere. All that use to be online were a few clips from a Korean site but they have since been removed. Theres also a sequel to this film, surprisingly.
    South Korean animation from the 70s-80s is incredibly hard to find (aside from the few films dubbed into English by IFD, like “Space Thunder Kids” and “Defenders of Space”)....
    I have some more coming in as well including an animated version of Tron and the South Korean version of Dragonball Z called “Super Kid”
    Also some South Korean versions of the Tokusatsu genre called “Fireman” (no relation to the Japanese Fireman) and the live action series of Street Fighter and Fist of the Northstar (I think theres a few episodes of these on youtube)

    @toothaction Hahaha. That film is “Little Boy Blue: Tiny Terrestrial”
    The Philippines have some pretty insane rip-off cinema as well. It was cheaper for most Asian countries to produce their own “version” rather than pay the licensing fees to import the original and make available in theaters, let alone on home video.
