BLAST produced < BRAVESTORM >, an SF special effects movie featuring < Silver Mask > and < Super Robot Red Baron >,
two popular special effect programs in 1970s.
It became BLAST’s first full-length feature film, in which representative Junya Okabe worked as producer,
scenario writer, and director, and the entire special modeling unit and CG & VFX unit under BLAST were mobilized.

In addition to the development of elaborate hero suit, the special modeling unit created futuristic guns and
numerous other gimmicks, using a large-scale, high-precision 3D printer.
The story frequently involves synthetic images, with the full-CG depiction of the emergence of giant robots and
battle scenes providing entertain-ing highlights.

The film was released in TOHO Cinemas across Japan in early November 2017 and screened in five other countries.
BLAST also independently handles paid online distribution of the film and sale of Blu-ray and DVD.

< 2018 / "Silver Suit Type R2" Independent development and sale of Statue Figure >
BLAST’s CG creator produced the digital prototype of the figure from the 3D data used in the film,
which was then output with the company’s large-scale 3D printer. The final brush up on details and
color sample production was taken care of by model creators at Zeppet, BLAST’s special modeling studio.
The result is a figure that achieves uncompromised quality.

Among a handful of survivors, the five brothers of Kasuga family [Shunsuke Daito, Chihiro Yamamo-to, Soran Tamoto,
