Japan Sinks! Operation D-1

There is a sci-fi movie in Japan this summer called "Japan Sinks" or "Submersion of Japan". You can find the promo here. TakaraTomy is going to release a TMW series for this movies. Most items we have seen before from F-Toys or Takara itself such as the CH-47, the Super Puma or the deep sea submarines in 1/144. The only items I'm interested in are those 2 Type 73 trucks (one is a Jeep and one is a truck). They are good addition to my JGSDF collections.

Updated: 04/15/2006
Here is the line-up
1. 1/144 Deep Sea Research Submarine - Shinkai 6500 (Type A)
2. 1/144 Deep Sea Research Submarine - Shinkai 6500 (Type B)
3. 1/144 Fire Rescue Helicopter AS-332 Super Puma
4. 1/144 CH47-J (JASDF)
5. 1/700 Obervation Flying Boat (???)
6. 1/700 Ocean Investigation Ship Natsushima and Shinkai 2000
7. 1/144 JGSDF Type 73 Truck and Type 73 SUV
8. 1/144 CH47-J (JGSDF)
9. 1/700 Tugboat Arasakimaru & Sea Surface Diorama

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can provide a translation of the list.

should be interesting to see the comparison of the CH-47 and Super Puma to the F Toys counterparts.

I think the Takara SH-60J from the Aegis series last summer was a better and more solid model than the F Toys version, but I like both and appreciate any manufacture that makes and invests in 1/144 models.

Thanks,

Philip Slater
