Ministry Of Science ID Badges

With thanks again to Felix Ip, the creative and art director of the Astro Boy Movie, here is a look at the Ministry of Science ID cards made for the film. You can see that Dr. Tenma's full name in the movie is William Umataro Tenma, but please, just call him Bill.

Felix's own name appears as a character too, a member of the Elite Special Forces. It's quite amusing that his ID has a picture of him with his helmet on.

Oh my goodness, that's so cool! X3 Quite a nice hommage to Tezuka's original characters.

My driver's license photo shows me with my motorcycle helmet on and the tinted faceplate down. Not.

Yes, the fact that the soldier Felix was pictured in his I.D. with his helmet on is quite interesting; I think that perhaps the I.D. card may be a standard-issue card to all soldiers, which only shows his/her name but not their photograph.
