Pilot Episode?

Postby Bladez636 » Sun Jan 15, 2012 4:16 am

Does anyone know if this exists? Wikipedia states there to be a pilot to have been filmed - clearly not dubbed in English originally aired in Japan on October 4th.Normally, trusting Wikipedia is a dumbass move, but there seems to be some sort of evidence. I'm guessing the footage we see in the end credits of the Japanese version would be from it if it's true - afterall, the Shiro puppet kind of looks different from the one in the series.If it's true, than doubtlessly it's lost considering the Japanese DVD doesn't contain it

The show that you speak of isn't a pilot show as such, but actually a special preview show with behind the scenes footage and interviews. Its title translated is "X Bomber Ready To Launch" and the good news is that it still exists and can be found here:http://www.veoh.com/watch/v17887724eqpYKwfqIt's an interesting watch for sure, but annoyingly a lot of the running time is made up of extended clips from X-Bomber Episode 1.

Not to mention authentic early 80s Japanese adverts! I think I've seen a clip of this somewhere, does it feature Go Nagai in a stupendous example of early 80s Japanese fashion as well?

Ah, I kinda figured that was it but I just wasn't sure!It was a bunch of clips from ep 1, but we get alternate versions of the scenes with different music - I liked that rock music during the Pluto Alpha Base attack scene - it fits more than the music that was used in the actual episode.
