Ghost In The Shell – Arise – Trailer

I can’t believe it took this long to make another Ghost in the Shell movie, I’m a huge fan and this is sort of a prequel to all of the Ghost in the Shell movies, a build up if you will to Major Kusanagi. I can’t wait to see this movie, I just hope that they come out with another series, its just too good to let it be like this. It’s a 50 minute movie with a July 26th release date for the BluRay.

Tachikoma – Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG

They are strong as tank and tactile with some weaponry to match. I always found them to be interesting characters, and I always like them and since I’m a fan of Batou from Ghost in the Shell they seem to view him as the favorite of the team.

This model is from Fewture, they make some very interesting models and this is one of them. A diecast large size Tachikoma which is very movable and has an excellent finish.

I’m running out of space to place these really cool models but I hope to find a solution, I have even kept some in the box in the back of the closet. I was hoping to find a good one of Major Kusanagi and Batou but that will take some searching to find.
