The thing with the storyboards is cool. Two different versions!

It is not very rare, but they are only in Japan and there are a few on Ebay.

You can buy the whole set here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Osamu-Tezuka-artworks-perfect-storyboard-illustration-book-7-set-box-/281536532030?hash=item418ce28e3e:g:7QgAAOxyOlhSuRN2

It looks very interesting, might get it myself. Only that I would have to buy one book at a time over time, as I do not have all the money.

I'd love to have them. They not only have storyboards, but screens from the show, and what looks to be development notes, at least in the vein of the characters themselves. Like, how to draw so and so, and this is what they look like in given facial expression/situation. That kind of stuff sounds excellent for an artistic reference!

Ok, his eyes are bugging me. Why is one of them square?? And that's a weird font to use for that kind of title! It looks like one of those little McDonald's video game things. There were only two buttons though, for stuff like "Be the goalie! Block the ball!" Since there are so many buttons on this thing I expect the game would be a bit more complex than that.

It says "Return of Atom, the Detective Maze Game" and in smaller text "The never ending Atom Detective Game where you chase and be chased"

Well I don't see why not :D

I found this figurine designed by Taku Yoshimizu on the Japanese Amazon while scrolling through Astro related items. The reason why I was doing this is so I get a rough idea what Japan has to offer in terms of Astro related things. So, when I go there, next year, I know what to buy and bring home.

I will update my post if I find anything else.
