    Anyone else remember this one? Series was edited into a TV movie called Voyage into Space. I loved it as a kid, wonder if it was really any good and if kids today would enjoy it a much as I remember enjoying it.

    I watched the original series in Japanese. It was a fave of mine as a kid watching this fun series from the late 70's (or was it early 80's?). Anyway, this is the same live action which the anime based Giant Robo from.
    Both are fun to watch. [​IMG]

    I loved this show as a child!
    I remember crying at the last episode when the Flying Robot "killed" himself to save the world or whatever by flting into the sun.
    I had actually submitted this show at www.TVShowsonDVd.com and you can now vote for it at that site.

    Hell, if we are going to get Jonny Soko on dvd we better get Ultraman first. The king of all Japanese live action giant montser TV shows.
