    Okay, I like the full-face visor-helmets than the bird beaked visor of the original. Makes a whole lot more sense

    well i expected them to have armor like suits due the fact that Shinji Aramaki Was involved with the project. they luckily don't look as horrible as the Imagi version. still dissapointed that they don't look somewhat similair to the older suits (i wasn't exptecting it either). again I'm Hoping that Yuusuke Watanabe will deliver a great story for this movie. and that the director would direct a decent action movie.

    Also one thing i have to add, the trailer reminds me of the style that the tv drama bloody monday had. which means the trailer implies a action driven story that doesn't rely too much on action scene's which means the story itself will or should not have a boring moment.
