Here is another robot CG movie "robot taekwon V(unofficial title)" very short cg demo clip.

I'm not part in this work, so don't question about this cg.

I've heard that this is released in next year.

Lookin' good. Well made giant 3D robots is something I can never get enough of.

It walks a bit like its constipated. Otherwise quite good. Is this from an upcoming film?

I hope someone makes a Mecha vs Dragons movie! I don't know, I think that would be cool!

What's the point of CG when it looks like a man in a suit?

Well it's cool I guess...but what's the context? Having a few shots showing a robot taking a couple of steps amidst skyscrapers is a good compositing exercise....but without knowing what it's actually about, it's hard to get excited for it.

Bingo! I thought it was minature work for a second. I dig giant robots but there is nothing robotic about a man-in-a-suit robot playing mocapped animation. Give us a REAL giant robot, like a Gundam, Eva or a Veritech! (I know at least two of those are on the way!)

Thanks for that clip. The design makes a lot more sense now that I know it is based on what is probably a pretty old cartoon.

That does look pretty cool. Even though the newscaster herself looks like she might be acting in a film.

Now, this iconic, taekwondo-kicking robot is set for the live action/CGI update. Planned to be released in 2009 (and to go head-to-head with The Transformers 2 in the Korean market), Robot Taekwon V (2009) is directed by WON Shin-yeon [원신연] of Seven Days and A Bloody Aria fame. Production is handled by Shin Cine [신씨네] (My Sassy Girl), and the budget is estimated at 20 billion Korean Won (over 20 million USD). CGI and visual effects are done by a consortium of Korean VFX companies, including macrograph (http://www.macrograph.co.kr/) [매크로그래프], mofac (http://www.mofac.com/) [모팩], Insight Visual (http://www.insightvisual.com/) [인사이트비쥬얼], DTI (Digital Tetra Inc.) (http://www.digitaltetra.com/) [디티아이], and EON Digital Films[이오엔].

Thanks for the links sandykoufax and Xen_Ninja, please keep us upto date if you find more, this will be interesting to watch progress. As JesseDavis and Glacierise said you can never have too many 3d giant robots. Dragons and Robots would be good as well.

The work in the news reel showing the joints and mechanical articulations looked good and the textures were ok for what we could see. It will be great to see someone else's view of this subject. I did'nt see Voltar the Invincible, what was the original like, was the story any good.

Two of the vfx companies(DTI and macrograph) working on ROBOT Tae Kwon V are also working on Jackie Chan's and Jet Li's big-budget epic ,The Forbidden Kingdom.

The first demo clip is done by "In Sight Visual", a Korean CG company, for a test purpose.
Two artists have spent about two month of time.
It was only a test version which means it lacks in filming condition. Therefore, three out of four shots had to finish completely digital.
Design for upcoming Taekwon V is still in development. which will be much different from the current version.
Feedbacks and much criticism in Korea at the moment with the demo, but with your replies at cgtalk gives me strengh, Thank you very much.

There's a whole host of japanese robots of that era who have a similar design. I grew up in a french speaking area, so for us it was all about Goldorak (or Grendizer, as he's know in Japan)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldorak

Both of those were created by the studio Go Nagai. According to Wikipedia, Robot Taekwon V was the Korean equivalent, inspired by Japan's Mazinger.

Looks very cool, love the shading and textures. It's always tough to update something that basically looked like plastic into something that looks huge.

Thanks for the updated image, ssmlc.

I'm really looking forward to see the progress of this movie.

And please don't forget the canned robot too. :)
