Animation Goes Real-Life - Fantasy Can Be Reality

Ever since I was kid, especially when I started watching animation (both Western and Japanese), I always wondered if people based their animated characters in real-life people, places, or things.  Is there really a basketball team with the line-up of characters like Shohoku High in Slamdunk?  Will I ever meet a real-life Albert of Candy-Candy?  Where can I buy a staff just like in Visionaries, that lets me become a bird, recharged by magic?  Do armies use the same technology that's in Sky Commanders, riding cables to quickly go to one mountain to another?  Can a house really fly with balloons attached to it?

Well, as years pass by, my childhood fantasies never really faded, rather, I've seen so many things that make me feel like all these made-up characters, place, etc, can be made in real-life or these characters are based on real people.  If you think I'm crazy or just naive, check out these real-life versions of the things we just used to watch on TV and the silver screen (or some from games).

Are there animation or movie characters/things/places you wish were real?  Don't give up hope!  They might come true (hopefully within our lifetime)!
