Jesús Barrero, remarkable Latin american voice actor dies at 58.
This is a very sad day for me and for every Spanish speaking anime fan. The legendary Mexican voice actor Jesús Barrero has lost his battle against cancer. He was one of the most beloved and respected Latin american voice actors and he voiced some memorable characters from anime, TV and movies, including:
Koji Kabuto in Mazinger Z
Jan Kugo (Galáctico) in SF Saiyuki Starzinger
Pegasus Seiya in Saint Seiya
Yamcha in Dragon Ball series
Rick Hunter in Robotech
Nube in Hell Teacher Nube
Taro Misaki (Tom Misaki) in Captain Tsubasa
Jason the Red Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
In the Star Wars universe individual Stormtroopers don’t stand out from their fellow soldiers. Their distinctive white armor bears no personal distinguishing markings, but that doesn’t mean there might not be a trooper inside a set of armor quietly wishing they could express their individuality somehow.
We like to think that one trooper’s secret dream has now been realized thanks to this awesome custom paint job by Japanese artist and Twitter user @yononaka_poison. She used fine-point paint pens to adorn her Stormtrooper action figure with beautiful designs styled after traditional Japanese tattoos, including sakura cherry blossoms and petals, demons, ornamental koi, and what appears to be Darth Vader as a samurai, which we’ve previously seen as a stunning action figure.
But in the world of Star Wars toys, Rey’s been hard to find — and fans took to social media, under the hashtags #WheresRey and #WhereisRey, to complain about all the movie merchandise that left her out.
Target’s Star Wars figurine 6-pack? Finn, Chewbacca, Poe, Kylo Ren and two unnamed characters: a Stormtrooper officer and a First Order TIE fighter.
