Hello, and welcome!
It's nice to hear from a Thai Kimba fan! I've happened to see on the internet some VCDs with the 1989 Kimba series that were made in your country.
As for the Jungle Emperor Leo movies, if it's possible for you, both movies can be purchased online.
The only problem that the first one (the one from 1966) is available only in Japanese, without English subtitles or english dubbing. However, the second one (from 1997) has both good English dubbing and subtitles.
In case you're interested in the 1966 Jungle Emperor Leo movie, you can order it from CD Japan.com. It comes in an DVD box, together with some other rare Tezuka movies (1964 "Astro Boy: The Brave in Space" and 1965 "New Treasure Island"). But note that the DVD is coded for region 2 (Japan, Europe, Middle East, South Africa) only.
The 1997 Jungle Emperor Leo movie can be ordered from Right Stuf and from Amazon.com. However, the DVD is coded for region 1 (U.S. and Canada) only.
CD soundtrack album for the 1997 movie is also available (Amazon.com).
If you may have any other question, simply let me know (either here or by e-mail), and I'll do my best to help you.
