    The 2 disc Astron-6 Collection can be had for cheap. I haven't watched all of the shorts in the set, but most of what I've seen is pretty fun.

    According to Twitch, Father's Day was recently banned in Australia!

    "Australian Classification, the government agency responsible for the classification of films, publications and computer games has given Astron-6's horror-comedy Father's Day the dreaded RC (Refused Classification). It can no longer be legally screened or distributed in Australia.

    "The agency assessed the film as belonging to a category of films that "depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified"."

    So not so surprisingly after the whole Father's Day issues, Troma will not be releasing Manborg, but evidently Dark Sky will be.

    Amazon pre-order page says it's coming April 30, 2013.

    I watched it last night. This won't change your mind if you're not an Astron-6 fan but I thought it was a lot of fun. Yeah, it's super low budget and yeah the green screen effects are sometimes hard on the eyes but the stop motion is cool, and there are a lot of random bits and pieces that are not just funny but genuinely creative too. It's a manufactured cult film I guess, but it's a really fun one.
