  1. What's goin on everyone, I'm Eric and I've been a fan of Guyver since I could remember. The earliest memory I have is possibly being younger than 4, around the 2002 era i believe, and watching the 12 episode Guyver anime on VHS at my dads house. I then started to develop a sense to draw Guyver, since I couldn't watch the show everywhere I go. So having a pen and paper allowed me to have Guyver with me lol I soon was exposed to the Guyver films, the one by Screaming Mad George and the Dark Hero film by Steve Wang. We all can agree on that the practical effects and zoanoid suits were beautifully designed especially the Guyver. But what really stood out to me was The Guyver Unit. Being interested in the Guyver Unit, I had a dream of always having one in my own hands. Why you might ask? Well, The Guyver Unit is the thing that grants the our protagonist his powers. Its what gave him the ability to be strong spiritually. Sho was a shy kid, and always had doubts about himself. Once he became the Guyver that allowed him to see that his friends are his strongest allies. He has a burning passion to protect his friends and everyone around him from Chronos who have bad intentions. And so, I can recall drawing Units in a sketch book. Having a blank CD case and using a sharpie to draw on the panel and line designs on it. I've found a large flat rock at a creek once and decorated it with crayons to make it look like a Guyver unit. When I was in 7th Grade, I had a cheese cylinder like container and it was a smaller size for a Unit, definitely not a 1:1 scale to any unit design from the Anime, Manga or Film. And the outcome was incredible. I really wish I had photos of it but I didn't have a camera or phone at that point. If I ever do find it, I will post photos of it, I believe it was decent at my age at the time. But it wasn't anything special, it was better than I had done before. When I was in my Junior year in High School, I was grounded, in my room being the most bored kid in the world, and started drawing. I landed on sketching Guyver units, which led me to start sketching out blue prints on making one. And after that, it was is history. I now make Guyver Units for the fans and collectors out there. I make Custom Light Up Guyver Units of all kinds. Just thought I could share my experience and my work with the other Guyver Fans here, and maybe you could have one for yourself(:

  2. HI all, this is my voice acted rendition of the first chapter of the Guyver manga. It serves as a personal tribute to Guyver and its enduring legacy as one of the greatest, most stylish and just plain fun Japanese superhero mangas. I hope you all enjoy this. I put a lot of work in it and I am charging nothing for you to see it. Just please spread the word if you like this and share it with your friends. I want this to be a perfect intro for anyone to get into Guyver, just like we already are. Hopefully this inspires more Guyver material!!

  10. I actually just got more frames in yesterday to frame the 3 second season discs. Just as an FYI, LD's are the exact same size as your standard Record LP, and there are some good options for framing/displaying those (See image).

  16. Steve: Thanks for the suggestion. But I no longer have the rights to the Guyver. The last time I checked, they are reserving it for big studio type films so not sure if anyone can make another film. Me: I see well that's too bad! thanks for the answer! keep the good work! cheers! oh and just wondering, if there is any chance to buy a unit G made by you? Steve: I no longer do private commissions. But sometime in the near future, my collectible company, Elite Creature Collectibles will be pursuing the Guyver license so we will create some guyver collectible! Cool can't wait!!!

  18. Yeah, I thought it was time for a thread devoted to my favorite American armored superhero. He is so very different from Sho Fukamachi. And yet, I have the feeling they would get along very well if they ever met. So... who is this guy, anyway? And where did he come from? Okay. Set the scene. It's 1963. Marvel comics has been publishing superhero comics now for a few years and things are going fine. The publishing house sets itself apart from DC, the company that invented the 'cape' genre, by having heroes that a) didn't wear capes (except for Thor, but he gets a pass because he's, like, two thousand years old) and b) had to deal with crap like everybody else. Now, over at DC, the superheroes were generally viewed with awe and admiration by the average upstanding citizen of, say, Metropolis or Gotham City. By this time, even Batman was family-friendly. It was all pretty much squeaky-clean. So, Stan Lee decided not to go that way. Instead, he created heroes that were quirky. They had issues. They weren't 'spit-curled demi-gods'. Now, in 1963 the Marvel stable of heroes was still so small you could comfortably accomodate them in a roadside diner; they consisted only of the Fantastic Four, a loving but dysfunctional family of misfits who received their powers in a disastrous accident; Ant-Man, a dejected scientist who invented a size-changing formula which he initially decided to throw out and never use again after he was almost ripped to pieces by ants; Thor, an actual god whose alter ego / secret identity was a crippled, timid medical doctor; the Hulk, a mild-mannered, physically frail scientist who designed the deadliest weapon ever created, almost got killed by it, and was periodically transformed into a giant, super-strong brute with an enormous chip on his shoulder and zero impulse control; and Spider-Man, a teenager who received super-powers from being bitten by an irradiated creature famed for being creepy, and whose life apart from superheroics was basically a chain of unfortunate events. They didn't get victory parades or autograph signings; they got into legal trouble and had scathing articles written about them in the papers. Where to go next? Stan Lee decided that after creating these counter-culture heroes - unbridled youngsters, world-weary scientists and god-like lumbering warriors, he'd create a guy the young people he wrote for would have to hate. And then make them like him. Enter Anthony Stark. A wealthy - okay, multi-millionaire - socialite, born to an established New York upper-class family, the son of an industrialist, lives in a Manhattan mansion, a playboy, always in well-cut suits with a martini in one hand and a debutante on his other arm. And how did he make his money? By designing and making weapons and ammunition and selling them to the US government. This in 1963. The Cold War was at its peak. The Cuban missile crisis had happened less than a year before. President Kennedy had recently escalated military activity in Vietnam. Anti-establishment feelings were strong among the youth of the USA, and here Marvel Comics presented this almost ultimate establishment character as a new superhero. Ballsy move. How do you make such a guy likable? You put him through Hell. The story goes like this: Tony Stark is in Vietnam, demonstrating his new technology for the US military and observing weapons designed for him in use. However, in the jungle, he runs into a booby trap and is taken captive by enemy soldiers working for a Communist commander named Wong Chu. Wong Chu, a brute who takes delight in challenging people in the villages he conquers to a wrestling match, promising freedom if he is defeated - which he never is - recognizes Tony Stark as a top weapons designer. His surgeon tells him Stark has deadly shrapnel in his body which cannot be removed, and has at most a week to live. Wong Chu convinced Stark to make a weapon for him in return for the promise of life-saving surgery, smirkingly noting that the industrialist is all-too ready to betray his country. However, Tony Stark realizes no such surgery is possible, and intends to trick Wong Chu by building a system which will save his life and help him escape at the same time. He is soon joined by another prisoner, aged Ho Yinsen, a famous scientist in his own right who had been abducted by the Communists to work for them. Together, the two men build Stark's design of a powered armor which will keep his heart beating even after the shrapnel reaches it. Even as the armor is completed and Tony Stark, on the brink of death, is sealed inside it as it is calibrating, Wong Chu approaches to check on his progress. To buy Stark time, Ho Yinsen rushes out of their hut, screaming and running and throwing quite a ruckus, until Wong-Chu has him shot. Inside the hut, they find no trace of Tony Stark; he is hiding himself on the ceiling, using suction cups to stay up, and is momentarily subject to despair as he realizes he can never take the armor off again, or he will die. Moments later, the Communists are confronted by a hulking metal man who resists all their weapons and challenges Wong Chu, swiftly defeating him. The Communists flee, and as Wong Chu himself runs, Iron Man manages to detonate an ammunitions storage, seemingly killing his captor. Having thus avenged Ho Yinsen, Tony Stark walks into the jungle inside his super-strong iron prison, wondering what the future will hold for him. It's just 13 pages, written in thoroughly outdated prose and with some alarmingly racist undertones - the Communists are all saffron-yellow and speak broken English even among themselves - but it certainly does the job of introducing the hero of the piece, and his predicament. Like I said, Stan Lee liked his heroes to have some fairly crippling flaw to deal with, and Tony Stark kind of had a double whammy: he was an establishment arms-dealer during the Vietnam war who was practically cut off from all the benefits of his wealth and good looks, because of the demands of his metal chest plate (turns out he didn't have to wear the full armor - but he couldn't take off the chest piece, and he had to keep it charged, or he'd outright keel over and die in minutes). Maintaining a dual identity - glamorous, intellectual rich boy Tony Stark and stolid, heroic, almost inhuman Iron Man - also took its toll. He could have lady friends, but not a sexual relationship, because then his secret would be out - assuming he could even perform in his current condition, let alone the lady in question. For better or for worse, Iron Man was born. To be continued...

  19. I know I am in the minority, but I just want the manga finished. To hell with the current live action movies and merchandise. To hell with new figures and statues of the anime/manga. To hell with any new live action project or special projects. FINISH THE SOURCE MATERIAL FIRST. There is no point in doing new projects based on the story, if that story is never going to finish... And considering his output, that may never happen at this rate. To me, these pictures only prove that he is alive. So he can start working on the manga. *edit* ...even created an instagram account to say that... but nicer...

  20. Canadian Customs was holding my figures since it seems like a price was not put on the shipping order and they needed to know how much tax to charge me. Oh well, they showed up today, and they really are impressive. I had to remove a glass shelve just to fit them in my cabinet. Going to have to think of an alternate solution.

  21. Hi guys i've just joined and wanted to show some pictures of a statue i made. I'm in the process of painting it up at the moment and adding the clear lenses. I'm going to finish this one in the Dark Hero colours. This statue also appeared in the recent special edition bluray release recently, which freaked me out when i sat down to watch the extras. Thanks for looking Pete

  23. Ok so since it's the 26th of the month, I went to the local bookstore to pick up Shonen Ace and, for the second time in the past 6 months, there was no Guyver. This is despite it saying last month that it would continue this month. I am so pissed at this bullshit that Shonen Ace are pulling now. In fact, I tweeted them immediately with this tweet before throwing the magazine straight in the bin. For those who can't read Japanese, I said: "You fooled me again. Last month it said that Guyver would continue this month but once again, for second the time in 6 months, you've lied to us all and not actually printed it. Any chance you can stop lying? Do you only do this because you know there's a lot of people that wouldn't buy your boring as drenn magazine each month if it didn't have the Guyver? Is that why you don't announce that it isn't actually inside? Stop ripping us off!!" There, I went straight to the assholes and said my piece. Shonen Ace costs the same as a Tankobon of the Guyver so you imagine why I am so pissed off right guys? I hate wasting money needlessly. Oh and btw, Guyver wasn't listed on the "in next month's issue" page either so don't expect anything soon. Well, I say that but Shonen Ace make it up as they go along so who knows, right? As of now, I'm only buying Shonen Ace when I see a scan go up. I'm not falling for their disgraceful tactics anymore. Grrrr

  32. I don't think I agree with that. Sho is absolutely average. That's almost a point of the character. There was nothing special about him at all before 'greatness was foisted upon him'. He got the armor because of a fluke. But the implication is that it could have been anyone. All humans have the potential to become Zoanoids, but a G-unit removes that potential. You could well say that the Guyver represents the rejection of military authority by the common man. Chronos is the very embodiment of a military drafting young men as cannon fodder. ...Takaya-San was born in 1960, so his parents would have lived through the war. It's entirely possible his father was drafted as a young man, or even teenager, by a regime not all Japanese necessarily agreed with. Zoanoids are genetically compelled to obey authority, to go fight and die in battle without questioning. The Japanese culturally were. They fought in the name of the Emperor, an exalted being who was said to have been descended from the gods themselves, but who, himself, played little part in the proceedings. His most aggressive and deadly ally was Nazi Germany, who idolized the Aryan ideal, and wanted to rule the world using a super-weapon. Although it may be going a bit far to equalize the Guyver with the atomic bomb. Anyway, Sho is definitely the ordinary boy who says 'Hell no, I won't go'. Usually such an effort is punished, but he has the power to resist... it is stated repeatedly that the aspect of the Guyver the Creators feared most was the power to refuse orders. "Out of control". If Sho is some kind of chosen one, if he is innately special, that weakens that message. But compare him to some of the others in the story. Murakami was a daring journalist who travelled to the ends of the Earth to pursue a story. Makishima had a tragic and bizarre back story which forged him into a sort of Ãœbermensch who would do anything to reach his goal. The Zoalords are by definition exceptional individuals, otherwise they would never have been chosen. Waferdenos isn't even human, he's a frickin' forest. And Archanfel himself is completely unique. Set against this collection of super-people, the most normal and average person conceivable: a school boy. Not the head of the class, not even the gifted and quirky nerd... no. He even looks average. Sho represents the teeming masses who do not want to rule the world, but who simply want to live a life (with his female equivalent: Mizuki). It would seem all of the others would have wanted the Guyver for themselves... and he never would. But he did, through blind chance: another act of defiance, a test type Zoanoid who disobeyed orders and chose death by his own hand over becoming cannon fodder. I wonder if Takaya considered having Malmud/ Melmoth/ Guinea Pig use the G-unit on himself. That would have been a different story... And Mizuki, too. She was in the area, wasn't she? A mere changing of the angle of the blast could have landed the G-Unit in her lap, so to speak. That would have been a really different story... Of course, there is a higher power that directed events: Takaya himself. But I don't think we should be looking to actual gods in the story. The only gods are the Creators.

  33. actually no. I don't think the same, more the opposite. it's true of humans that we are remarkably adaptive. that is essentially what guyver is about. humans are highlighted as a species that was able to adapt to many different situations and environments. There is something that is true of humans in our safe society. When we see suffering, we amplify it to try and empathise. it's a mechanism that keeps us afraid of bad stuff so we avoid it. but those of us who have truly suffered, can understand that in a lot of situations, we are able to cope with truly horrifying things. we have inbuilt mechanisms to numb pain, to keep us going, to lessen the impact of trauma etc. it is fear that makes it difficult for people to cope. but if we accept our situation, we can often cope very well. I have been wrongfully arrested in the past, and was shut in a police cell. I wasn't scared as I knew I was not in trouble, I was innocent. I simply sat and meditated on past events. I didn't suffer at all and when they opened the door a few hours later, I was perfectly fine. that's not such a bad situation and I have been through far worse, but I don't really feel comfortable sharing that other stuff right now.

  37. I haven't watched any of these videos but I read everything above... in all honesty I think everything what she said is true BUT the comments and sweeping statements about hating ALL white people because of it is just misguided and stupid, but that is her feeling born from her experience as a black person living in America. and no that doesnt make it right but if she and the millions of black people who have grown up with the system set up against them feel disgruntled in coming up against obstacles purely because of their race you can see why they can get there minds twisted into these strange ways of thinking, some people just need something to vent there emotions at even if its not necessarily the right place its no exscuse to be prejudice though they should aim that anger at the government and the financial fatcats and other clandestine forces that are the oppressors she explains racism as '' the system''...so from the get go her semantics are wrong...the system is racist, not racism. I feel a lot of the venting in this is from the discussion of the N word ''black object'' is not a nice way to describe a human being. although my skin is white, I am a quarter African- so am I a devil because I have white skin but part black genetics? according to this woman apparently so...hmm, my grandfather would be upset to hear his grandchild and his son in law called a devil... and was Bob Marley a half devil because of his genetics? he was of mixed descent as his father was white - i don't think anyone could accuse Bob Marley of having been a semi devil ! its a shame when people vent in the wrong way at the wrong people - that is just playing into 'whitey's' / 'the systems' hands... anyway until people just embrace the fact that we are one race things will always be fkd no matter what are skin colour. one love, one heart, lets get together and feel alright!!!

  39. So I have been coming to this board every month or so just to see if there is any new developments and to check how the story is progressing. This is the first time I have posted simply because I really did not have anything to say. Then today I saw something that peeked my interest so I would like to see what other people think. So I was just kinda looking things up on the internet just random stuff, so eventually I look up David Hayter, I check out his twitter looking for stuff he has said about Metal Gear and how he was discontinued as the voice of snake. Also just seeing if he made any passing comments about the Guyver. I just like to see people mentioning Guyver, it is always cool to see that other people enjoy it as much as I do. So to cut to the chase I came upon a tweet of his that made rather excited and curious. So on August 10th which apparently when they were shooting Dark Hero 20 years ago. His tweet says that he met with Steve Wang and discussed Guyver 3. Now do not confuse this with a tweet he made in January where he says at one time he pitched the idea to Wang, but something about the rights being messed up made them unable to pursue the project. So this really makes me wonder if he was serious or if he was just meeting with the guy, maybe they are friends or something.But he did say that he was discussing Guyver 3, so i figure if he was being serious and not just kidding, that this actually might happen. I assume the problem with the rights got sorted out it has probably been several years since the pitch he had made previously to Wang. I assume it was a while ago since he refers to it in the past tense. And I would figure if it was recent he would have mentioned that he recently made this pitch. So if anyone is as interested as I am check out his twitter and look for august 10th. I do not have a twitter and I think making one for the sole purpose of asking him would look strange, and he probably wouldn't answer. I figure if it was me and some one twitted me that had no other tweets follows 0 and has 0 followers would seem a bit fishy. So basically what does anyone think, personally I want it to be true. Granted the live action films are not that great. But I think this one would be much better simply because Hayter Would probably right it. He has written several movies that are adapted from comic books, and did so quite well. Watchmen xmen 1 and 2 not the crappy 3d one.

  40. Hahaha that is pretty funny. and i think the revised size is pretty good. I think it works out much better, though we will need the orbs placed on him to complete the look. But we can understand the limits of animation if becomes too difficult to work with all that detail. Also, remember the anime scene when Guyot walks up to a poor confused mook? He pops up. ---- looks pissed ---- mook notices ---- Gets bigger ---- and Bigger ---- AND BIGGER ---- and finally mook soils his pants as he's killed. Also consider the camera angle is still making the mook look bigger in comparison than he actually is.
