Astro Boy Turns 60

Hard to believe that the mechanical boy that kick started the whole anime serial movement, Astro Boy, has turned 60. Osama Tezuka launched the adventures of the famous robot boy back in 1952 in post war period manga before hitting the small screen in 1963.

ZC World has decided to help Astro celebrate in fine style by issuing a PVC model of Astro Boy, seen in the gallery below. The figure will be shipped in a wooden box and you can expect him to retail for ¥12,000.
