I'd do this if I wasn't so fond of my Sir Alec tossing back a Guinness......

Anyone here familiar with the early 80's cartoon "Star Blazers"? It aired for a few years here in the States and in Japan....

Well, the captain of the Argo in the American version was "Captain Avatar".

From the second I heard avatar used as the term for this image, I wanted to make one with the good 'ol Captain on it.....

StarBlazers was anime that had a big aircraft carrier-type ship with a giant hole in the front which housed the dreaded "wave-motion gun". The crew was on a one-year journey out of the galaxy and back in an effort to save earth from radiation bombs...

looks nice, Zero..

I remember the series i mentioned as having a ship that would get critically damaged almost every episode. it wasn't anime, more with dolls like Thunderbirds.
there were even some Star Wars- ripoffs on there, now that i think of it, with some droids that looked suspiciously like the ones we know and love..
