Re: Astro voice actor here

I've just contacted the licenced distributors of the 80s series in Australia (Madman Entertainment) and asked them if they can release the lost dub here. Many years ago they released the subtitled version of the cut footage, so they have a history of high quality releases and going the extra mile fo...
