Too much?

How much did you pay for it, Josh? Just kinda curious.

Yeah, I remember Thundersub. It aired for almost a year every weekend on TV during the mid/late 80's/early 90's but the storyline was so boring.

I'm a big fan of all things

I'm a big fan of all things StarBlazer/Yamato, and I've never heard of Blue Noah. Damn you, Mr. B, for introducing me to this wonderful little toy.

So glad to see this today!

Blue Noah stuff in the US is really impossible to find. It doesn't come along often. It's a super deep cut for Yamato fans, and THUNDERSUB again is pretty obscure stuff.

If you liked the BLUE NOAH show, try Leiji Matsumoto's version of the show (kinda) called SUPER SUBMARINE 99 - the one DVD I saw of it was pretty good.

I would personally LOVE to see more Ulysses 31 and Blue Noah toys reviewed on the site. There's not a lot of info on these out there. Nomura and Popy put out a bunch of cool stuff for these two shows. Plus U31 is pretty popular still in Europe!

On the contrary Josh, BLUE NOAH is an engineering masterpiece as the missile launchers are semi-submerged in water when in the down position!

WANTED DESPERATELY: A Soul of Chogokin BLUE NOAH by BANDAI or at least a plastic version by TAITO!
