* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeDBIwRe2AE Two]] original animated introductory films for ''Daicon III'' and ''Daicon IV'', both iterations of a major {{science fiction}} convention in Japan. These were their first creations, before they had really formed the studio. Due to the truly staggering amounts of shoutouts to both anime and American science fiction in both, plus the latter using Music/ElectricLightOrchestra's song "Twilight", any release above and beyond a laserdisc version in the early '80s have been [[ScrewedByTheLawyers vetoed by pretty much every license holder.]]
