Several people have written in asking about the Tetsujin-28 movie that was released in Japan earlier this year. Tetsujin was known as “Gigantor” in many countries outside of Japan. While we can’t find any foreign release schedules for the new movie, we can point you to lots of great online trailers, images, and downloads.

The movie was popular with robot fans, especially those that grew up watching Tetsujin, but didn’t draw much of a general audience. The plot of the new movie holds true to all the classic Tetsujin stereotypes.

I’m not sure exactly why, but in most Japanese robot movies the huge robots are controlled by young school boys.

To watch the movie trailers, find this link on the movie webpage (see links below):

The page will allow you to watch or download several different trailers for the movie. The action and computer graphics are easy enough to watch and figure out what’s going on, even if you don’t speak a word of Japanese.

Also, on the home page, you’ll find a “Download” link. Click it and you’ll be transferred to a page that gives you several download choices including wallpapers, a mask, and some unique paper-craft kits. You print out the image on your color printer, cut and assemble to make a paper model Tetsujin or Black Ox.

  1. My idea is that 28 FX elaborated to Tetsujin and that we waited for a possible Return of Tetsujin 28 FX
