Astro Boy Display

Here's a not so up-to-par display for Astroy Boy at Coex Mall (Seoul, Korea). I wanted to provide some background info on this 3D animation. I could explain the history of Astro Boy, but it was much better said in Wikipedia:

"Astro Boy (Tetsuwan Atomu?, lit. "Mighty Atom") is a Japanese manga series first published in 1952 and television program first broadcast in Japan in 1963. The story follows the adventures of a fictional robot named Astro Boy and a selection of other characters along the way.
Astro Boy is the first Japanese television series that embodied the aesthetic that later became familiar worldwide as anime.[2] It originated as a manga in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, revered in Japan as the "God of Manga."[3] After enjoying success abroad, Astro Boy was remade in the 1980s as Shin Tetsuwan Atomu, known as Astroboy in the United States and other Western countries, and again in 2003. In November 2007, he was named Japan's envoy for overseas safety.[4] An American computer-animated 3-D film based on the original manga series by Tezuka was released on October 23, 2009."
