Very interesting thread. The Atom from this series looks like the prototype for Jetter Mars. A prototype for Jetter's sister is there too. As far as Astro's nipples go, they did appear on Atlas in the 1983 anime. Also this Atom is a bit of a throwback to the original "Captain Atom" as far as the art...

In the "Astro Cat" manga Atom's height was stated as 123cm (not including hair spikes), which is almost EXACTLY 4 feet tall. In one of the anime or manga episodes his weight was stated as 67 lbs. I wonder if anybody ever took a tape measure to his statue at the Tezuka Manga Museum in Japan?
