No, in fact you're probably one of the reasons Neo has reminded us of the rules. Just because he talked about that movie once in an episode doesn't qualify it as Mecha Anime/Sir Bay/ or a recurring property discussed more than once. Maybe Neo disagrees, but maybe cut down your news posting a little bit dude.

As for a tidbit that actually applies to the podcast: Lego Ra Caillum

No, calm down, Machette Kills news is ok.

Forgot to add the rule "if I like it its ok".

Richard Roeper's review of Pacific Rim: "Either the Jaegers or kaiju "can take down any of the Transformers."

Please don't make me quoting certain wrestlers' catchphrases (What?!) or you don't want to find out how nasty it gets (What?!). Tell me you didn't just say that (What?!)

1970s Concept art for actual space stations. Clearly these inspired Blomkamp for his Elysium movie and of course Tomino for the colonies featured in Gundam:

Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro visits Japan with both the adult and child actresses of film character Mako Mori; Rinko Kikuchi and Mana Ashida.

He also visits the Gundam Museum in Odaiba and admits that Cherno Alpha was inspired by the Zaku II. He was very excited to see the giant Gundam.

I know this isn't really news.... BUT I do think this is pretty interesting to see the size comparisons of all those mecha.
