Genesis Climber Mospeada Popup Shop

Well, it’s been a pretty crazy month for Mospeada fans.
First, a new Entertainment Archive “mook” was announced for the series.
Then, late Thursday July 30, news broke regarding the Genesis Breaker project (first hinted at during Summer Wonder Festival 2019).
The following day, Hakaba no Garo Gallery at Nakano Broadway opened a limited-time popup shop for the original Genesis Climber Mospeada, complete with a high-level concept overview of the story of the new Genesis Breaker project.

The SpeakerPODcast Crew was at the popup shop as it opened to snap the gallery of pics below.
First, however, lets look at the information on display regarding Genesis Breakers…

SPEAKERPODCAST EP.136 – Tomonori Kogawa @ Anime Los Angeles

We’re joined by special guests Tom Bateman, Leonardo Flores and, later on, Tim Eldred as Adrian recounts the experience of coordinating the first US convention appearance of legendary character designer/animator/illustrator Tomonori Kogawa at Anime Los Angeles 2020!

But first, there actually IS some Macross news to go over, since it looks as though Walkure is back and won’t give up!

(Thanks to Adrian for the photos from Anime Los Angeles!)

Piece of Peace Exhibit

Lego is currently holding a “Piece of Peace” exhibit from Feb.22 to March 15 across two locations in Tokyo.
The bulk of these exhibits is made up of replications of world heritage sites. One particular corner, however, just so happens to be dedicated to the works of one Shoji Kawamori. Perhaps you’ve heard of him?
Shoji Kawamori’s design process using Lego blocks has been well documented over the past couple of decades, and several of the pieces on display at this exhibit had previously been shown at previous exhibits.
The difference this time however was that the public was allowed to take photographs. While the lighting and layout wasn’t exactly optimal, we did manage to put together the following gallery.
Enjoy!
