so, it seems like I have found a nasty little rabbithole with korean mecha shit, or mecha like stuff, anything else some anons here know about it, nobody outside of korea really talks about it

Yeah, it’s rather hard to fully get into without one or more guys extremely into vintage Korean cinema or home media stuff, I have a very good one but it’s extremely hard to go through stuff via just google, there’s this one very good Korean site for this stuff, it’s still not fully effective unfortunately

good way to find a bunch of lolROK that you haven't seen yet is to find the hangul for something easy to grab like Space Gundam V and then go through suggested youtube links
I don't recall that it has robots at any point but it has nuclear explosions and Master Roshi so who the fuck knows, but ROK Street Fighter II live action is amazing
Our Friend Power 5 even has Eng subs, that's got that Machine Robo/Gobots powered suits you'd stick the 3.5"ers into and gattai them, and some TMNT content.

there used to be a good Japanese site "nanda korea" but they've been dead for a while last I checked

If you want to have night terrors there’s a short series where a kid uses stock footage from Tokusatsu and morphs into an unsettling rubber Gundam F91. There’s several episodes.

>nasty rabbit hole
There is a lot of intricate history to SK anime in general, especially the fact that they made a lot of these shows during a nationwide ban on JP media. Lots of Korean animators in the mid to late 1980s worked at AIC and tons of other studios. I could go on all day, I'm autistic about it

Original poster for Space Black Knight (우주 흑기사 / Uju Heukgisa) which used real settei from 0079 to animate from, its pretty faithful at times and reminds me a lot of what Gunboy could have been.

Original poster for Super Mazinga 7, or Super Teukgeup Mazinger 7 (슈퍼특급 마징가 7), aka Protectors of Universe when Joseph Lai bought the distribution rights for these TV films. Some of them were shown in theaters, but many were TV programs. This one borrows from a lot of sources, but mainly has some unique Tatsunoko themed design choices. It was animated in 83' by one of the animators who worked on the Transformers TV show in 84' and then the film in 86'.

Space Black Knight also had a long running manhua and even Roman-like settei booklets just like what Tokuma Shoten produced in the late 70s - 1990s. This is a page from the manhua; I have seen it sold on websites, but import taxes make it hard to get where I am.

A lot of these TV specials and films were made to promote plamo mainly. The only film I can think of from this era that was made before this was an option had to have been Taekwon V, which eventually got plamo etc. Its still such a major cornerstone of SK media til this day and there's giant statues of the robot in major parts of Seoul. Go Nagai even loves it and found it unique in how it re-imagined aspects of Mazinger.

Its real and was a pretty big deal when it debuted and is still famous culturally til this day.

On a side note, most of these films I'd like to note were produced, funded, and animated by Seung-cheol Park (Transformers animator) who adored anime. He is also a major fan of Yas' work and Three Iron Musketeers (Iron Trio/철인삼총사) is a direct homage to Crusher Joe in so many ways. You can watch the print here:

I grabbed this from a SK blogger ages ago (not my photo), but an example of the plamo produced. Each TV special and film had its own plamo, uniquely made by a brand called Academy usually. Academy would make some 0079 figures too, but I have only ever seen one of Matilda Ajan floating about. This one is made by another company, but they are extremely rare to come across.

so does the kit inside actually look like the particular Daiclone or is it just some random robot?

This LP goes for at least $200 these days on Discogs. Many of these series also had their own LPs just like any other JP media of the era.

More Space Black Knight materials. I have more and am sourcing books to scan in these days, but this is all I got on my PC. In other news, I'll be scanning the Cucuruz settei books when they arrive - stay p0asted.

Actually Korea had access to anime before they even had color TV, they just had to exploit loopholes to get it through.
If I recall correctly, they were able to get Mazinger Z through by lying about it being an American cartoon.
>>
>>20911070
No it’s fully animated, very cheaply though. What makes this one especially bad is that they aren’t even hiding the fact that it’s just grendizer but weaker and ends up jobbing (the support aircraft save the day and are present at the end screen). Also it’s outright plagiarism for using an unaltered grendizer COMPLETE with its double harkan technique
>>
>>20913180
Nice work, Kankoku-no-aikousha.

>>20913135
Being TV specials would help to explain the palpably low production values, I certainly would be pissed off to pay full ticket price to see something like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMBzUwO2WeI or other Joseph Lai schlock. Now I'm interested to know what time of day these specials aired and how they were promoted before airing.

>>20913754
A lot of Nintendo and Sega stuff there used American localizations as a base because they already had the Japanese influence scrubbed off.

The show is full of other blatant copies of known properties like the two DBZ soldiers he fights so they probably made that Gundam themselves. I doubt even Sunrise or Bandai made an SD F91 for promotion.

There were a few that got in but the majority of it was from the 60s and early 70s so there was no statute of limitation for them to show it. Most of the mid 70s til the 90s stuff is original.

Ashens and Ed Glaser did a watch of this movie on their twitch channel (I couldn't find the archive) and Ed talked about there being a toy maker who started doing merchandise for these movies without permission and frequently visited Japan for idea. Eventually he bankrolled the movies and you got stuff like this.

We got the Machine Robo Battle Armor 5 versus Baxinger told via TMNT toys. Note that the evil Splinters all have Gundam Mk-II beam rifles.
