  1. That sucks for fans of Astro Boy!

  2. I am dying to see Astro Boy!!!!!!!! I can't WAIT!! I hope it's more like the 80's series and manga, not that hokey '03 series.

    I'm nervous about Jazwares though... ooooooh man...

  3. The Jazwares Megaman toys were terrible!it actually amazes me that in today's toy market, Jazwares can be a viable manufacturer with that level of toymaking. Poor Astro Boy...

  4. Who gives a crap about Astro Boy? Sure, Rockman's designs were inspired in part by him, but he's the ugliest and most annoying character I've ever seen. :P

    Rockman > Astro Boy.

  5. Hmm, speaking from experience, it should be interesting to see how that goes.
