-Atom Timeline- by shazy -Atom Timeline- by shazy
A pic thats been in my head for a while. Done over 2 weeks.

i like all the astros really, and thought it would be cool to put all of them together, so you can see the differences. (there may be other astros i've missed out, but these are the main ones, i think, excluding things like the comic 'pluto' etc).

Also let me point out that these are like stereotypes, if you like, of that particular astro. What i mean is, there are times when the manga astro looks like the 80's astro, and vice versa. i just picked up on the features which i think kept popping up in that series.

Main features i noticed:

*Manga:

His hair bends inwards and sticks out alot. His eyes are often just full black. He has joint lines. He uses his arm rockets alot. Small ears. His dialog is often typical super hero, not really very unique.

*60's:

Has a colour to his eyes, despite the greyscale. still has joint lines. some confusion over how many fingers on each hand. sometimes 3, sometimes 4. still has bendy hair. In the anime he is very sensible, with an english voice which i think suits him. i love his interaction with the audience.

*80's:

Much shorter. He has smaller boots which start lower down his legs, and he can take them off. Still occasional joint lines. Ridiculously high voice, which is cute, but at the same time makes you cringe. not really very super-hero-ish. tiny underwear in proportion to the rest of him. Small ears again.

*2003:

Brighter eyes, much taller. Longer legs with boots pulled right up. pants are longer in proportion to his body. No joint lines. highlights on his body. Sharper hair, which does not bend inwards. hairline is further up his forehead. Hands definitely have 4 fingers, and are larger. feet more rounded, boots dont come off. Bigger ears.

*Movie:

Well...yeah you can see the differences. New design to his boots, he has a buckle to his belt. his underwear is more like black shorts. Lost the cutesie roundness to his cheeks ,and hair sticks out more. More human-like hands.

I'm hoping the images will show the differences, you know.

i dont own astroboy, silly!, i just wanted to draw him over and over XD.

(watermarked until i can find somewhere to put a sig)

80's Astro Boy was really cute, although there are so many scenes where he gets hurt XD

2003 Astro Boy was freaking adorable, his eyes and stuff and just.. :iconiloveitplz:

I really liked the 2009 version. In most of the animes people consider Toby/Astro to be 9 or 10 years old, in the movie he's 13 (When the robot put him in that closet, he mentioned Toby's age). Still adorable in this version too xD

The movie Astro Boy doesn't make part of Atom's official time-line.
Tezuka ONLY consider the animated versions made by themselves as part of Atom timeline.

Its rude to go out of your way to unnecessarily point out errors in people's work ^^'' if it bothers you so much then you dont have to look

I don't mean to be rude with you, but it's just good to know that Tezuka themselves only fill the time line till 2003 series.

Otherwise, you may end up being misleading.

It's worth to remember the movie had not granted a new series based on it and if had, then Tezuka would list it.

you're implying that i do not have my facts straight. this isnt a timeline for tezuka, it is a timeline for atom, and he has appeared in a movie, whether or not the original creators support that. And i question whether or not that is really worth remembering; it sounds as though you are just lecturing me on something which im actually a very big fan of which is quite insulting. Its all well and good to want to educate someone but not at the expense of something they have worked hard on, especially when it is not even incorrect by my own standards

What you say it's true, but it's good to provide more information about your work if either is official or fanon.
