Astro Boy the movie… the costume?

I am super excited today because I found out that one of my favorite animes is coming to the big screen in 2009. I present you Astro Boy the movie!

“Set in futuristic Metro City, Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist in the image of the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving man’s expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the father who had rejected him.”

Watch the Astro Boy movie trailer below:

It is pretty cool and even though the trailer doesn’t give too much about the movie, if you watched the show on TV you have a pretty good idea of what might happen.

I have to say, i am a tiny bit disappointed because I was hoping they would make the Astro Boy movie with real actors and use CGI or whatever else computer technology to make him fly.

Of course, I am hoping, pretty certain actually, that a Astro Boy costume will be available for Halloween 2009. I searched online and found a few pretty good Astro Boy costumes:

At, they have a large Astroboy costume:

And some more found on Flickr:

Hopefully costume designers will be able to create a pretty resembling Astro Boy costume by the time of the movie premiere.
