Created by "God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka in 1952, Astro Boy was a Japanese comic book character who made his way into an animated television series in the early '60s, eventually outstripping his popularity in Japan and achieving global name recognition. To celebrate the robot boy's 60th birthday, Casio is releasing a commemorative limited edition G-Shock 56-00. Special features include Astro Boy's flying silhouette in red when the watch is backlit, as well as a special 60th anniversary logo etched onto the metallic back case. Limited to just 1,000 units, the watch is available to pre-order for the Japanese market through Charamono, with delivery scheduled for late November. via: G-Street
