Shout! Factory seems to know what I want on DVD even before I realize it. Then I open my email and I see this…

Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot wasn’t even on my need to watch radar, but after this friendly release reminder, It had skyrocketed up my list.

“Robot, attack! Robot, destroy!” These commands launched a thousand sci-fi fantasies for budding fans of the genre, just as they brought Johnny Sokko’s Giant Robot into imminent battle action! Under the voice control of young Johnny Sokko, the massive, flying metal behemoth would bring his fiery breath, laser eyes, finger-launched missiles and, above all, his physical strength into battle with countless menacing monsters bent on destroying the Earth!

This epic fantasy series from Toei Studios aired from 1967 – 1968 and garnered even more fans in after-school reruns throughout the 70s. Collected here for the first time on DVD are all 26 episodes of explosive kaiju battles, nefarious alien takeover plots and mind-blowing heroics from jet-packed Johnny Sokko and his equally airborne friend and protector: giant robot! This special 4-DVD collector’s edition includes a 24-page book with special essay by August Ragone.

The set will be released on March 26th, so mark your calenders or do like I did and just pull the trigger now and pre-oder your copy at Amazon or at Shout! Factory.
