First off, if you weren’t at GDC last week, Yukio Futatsugi and Kentaro Yoshida did a “postmortem” on Panzer Dragoon.
I haven’t found any videos yet, and the official GDC video when uploaded will require a subscription ($550 US, ouch!) BUT, I have found this:
A series of tweets that covers a number of the slides from the presentation.
Secondly, there were a couple of interviewers that met with the guys while they were in town, articles here:
Lastly, I Thought you’d like to see a couple newer Panzer Dragoon items I’ve acquired. Hopefully with the re-releases we’ll see a few more official Panzer products, too!
^ this is an imgur gallery, all pictures are in there.
Item 1: Made by a company called Smiral and sold exclusively through a partnership with SEGA at Tsutaya.
It’s an acrylic Panzer Dragoon diorama! 3 pictures: , front-on, angled with US penny for scale, and the packaging which some may find helpful to track down their own.
Item 2: Picture 4 is a handmade Azel sculpt I’ve been trying to get my hands on for about 5 years now. The artist has a deviant art page that I don’t think has been updated in quite a long time and I even managed to track down their ebay account but they never replied. Then one day I saw it for sale so I snatched it up right away. It’s hand made, hand painted and although the artist claims it’s “one of a kind” I’m 100% positive there are at least 2 on the planet. There’s just no way to tell how many he’s made, really. Unfortunate the way the artist acts, but the art itself is quite nice.
And item 3 is one I’ve been searching for a LONG time. Finally got my hands on a limited edition Orta Xbox! I cleaned it up a little bit after I took my picture, got rid of a lot of the scuff marks.
My collection is nearly complete!
