by Chris Troy Happy October everyone! As the fall approaches, I’m excited for one of the best months of the year. Football is back, baseball games actually matter (when not rained out), Octoberfest and its various spellings are going on, and we’re 14 days away from New York Comic Con/ Anime Festival. With online badges [...]
By Shannon H Touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable! Row row– Ahem. Suffice it to say that there is a new TENGEN TOPPEN GURREN LAGANN book out this week and I’m super-dooper excited about it! Why, you may ask? Well, obviously because TTGL is freaking awesome, and also because its manga adaptation, amazingly enough, doesn’t [...]
By Chris Troy I’m sure by now, you, the Forbidden Planet blog reader, are dying to know what I think of the Green Lantern movie, as well as the DC Reboot this upcoming September (If not, please humor my frail ego). Well I saw the GL film this past weekend and I thought it was [...]

Macross Frontier, Dragon Ball Z, Escaflowne, and of course, Gainax’s Neon Genesis Evangelion have all received the Gunpla treatment, and today, we’ll be looking at the EVA o-1 from the 2nd Eva movie “Evangelion 2.0 You [...]
If you follow the child-pool depth continuity of this blog, Loran’s off at Otakon this weekend. I like video games, drinking and not dealing with a city where “The Wire” took place, so I’m home this weekend, posting an additional article. But we’re not talking Gunpla today, or even Gundam. Instead, we’re going to focus on the overlooked import toy section of Forbidden Planet NYC! I’m hoping to turn this into a new feature on the blog, as man, I love me some Revoltechs.
Eva 1.0 is the first of four films that comprise a Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy. Essentially a re-telling of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series, done up with schmancy new art and CG, the film’s a spectacular testament to the series longevity and lasting appeal.
