Star Blazers action figure gallery

star blazers
Star Blazers was a huge phenomenon in my neighbourhood when it hit the airwaves in 1979, my friends and I would gather every day at the one house whose ariel got the channel just to see if the Argo did indeed save earth.

That's why these action figures produced by Nomura in Japan blew my mind when I first saw them. Like Battle of the Planets, Star Blazers is an action figure line I really wanted as a kid!

So I present to you not only my dream line of action figures but possible one of the greatest playsets I've ever seen and brother, that's saying a lot.

i was also a huge Starblazers fan back in the day and although i never saw this toy set i still have a couple dozen Starblazers plastic model spaceship kits.

Have you seen the 2010 live action Space Battleship Yamato Movie or better yet the more recent Space Battleship Yamato 2199 anime remake series?

Both are incredible, especially the anime re-adaptation/update. Totally recommended! Plenty of trailers on YouTube if you are curious. :)

yeah i did see the live action movie it was kinda cool for sentimental reasons but as a movie per se it was mostly just ok. on the other hand that remastered animation series was just all kinds of awesome from what i've seen of it already which was the Pluto battle from the first episode and later in the series the battle the Yamato had with a massive Gamalon fleet at the half way point to Iscandar. hadn't seen that link you posted however so thanks for that!
