    Pre-ordered this yesterday just for the heck of it. I have a boot, but this is better. And, can't encourage this stuff enough. Wish the film was included too. I think the movie was produced using just footage from episodes. Still be good to have it. Now, if shout! could get Space Giants and Spectre Man, people around the house would think I'm speaking in tongues, but it would just be speaking in Japanese Dub, voice not matching... just to freak them out.

    Already pre-ordered. Loved this as a kid, dreamed about having my own giant robot. Liked this better than Ultra Man.
