GIGANTOR IN THE PC AGE

Here's a series of ads featuring Tetsujin No. 28 — aka Gigantor to us Yanks — that brings the character into the PC age, along with his nemesis, the Black Ox. I love how steam-punk Gigantor looks, and the icing on the cake is the use of the classic original theme music. (The Gigantor theme that we got here in the States was clearly written by and for Americans, while the Japanese original displayed the martial "march" feel common to heroic anime of that era.)
