Kryllith: Not only a Disney one, but apparently there's some Voltron made from vehicles?
dualplains: Years ago I watched the first few episodes of Voltron when they aired it on Adult Swim. It didn't hold up.
Disposable Rob: dualplains: Years ago I watched the first few episodes of Voltron when they aired it on Adult Swim. It didn't hold up.Watch the making-of documentary on the Voltron DVDs. The writers admit to having made-up whole new stories when translating the cartoon because no one spoke Japanese.
Disposable Rob: I like it. I saw this and my first thought was this is the exact opposite of "raping my chiildhood", whatever that is.
Cagey B: OH GOD HOW COULD YOU DO SUCH A TH-Oh, wait. I'm an adult and don't particularly care what people do with intellectual properties that happened to exist twenty-five years ago. Whew.
FinFangFark: Kryllith: Not only a Disney one, but apparently there's some Voltron made from vehicles?there were three Voltrons...the lions, the vehicles and a third that was sold as a toy, but was never put on American TV. It was three giant robots that combined. I remember having all three toys as a kid, and wondering where the hell the TV was coming out to explain the third one.
FinFangFark: Remember that one time on the old TV show when the Dinobots tried to combined, but failed?Yeah, good times...
Freschel: My childhood memories (late '60s early '70s) were craptastical creations by Hanna Babara and Sid and Marty Krofft. Please violate my childhood./Okay Johnny Quest and the first two episodes of Scooby Doo was good.//Yes I'm aware of Johnny Test.
Arcangela: I started watching Voltron Force the other day and I highly recommend it to anyone who was a fan (It's available on Netflix.). I think they do a really good job of paying homage to the original cartoons... at least the good parts that i remember now as an adult. There's even a scene where one of the newer characters talks about how stupid it would be for an enemy NOT to attack during the formation sequence.
PIP_the_TROLL: On a bittersweet note, it's neither as drastic nor as awesome a redux as the new Thundercats though. nu-Thundercats blows nu-Voltron out of the water.
PIP_the_TROLL: That's a very sophisticated toy.
FuryOfFirestorm: FinFangFark: Remember that one time on the old TV show when the Dinobots tried to combined, but failed?Yeah, good times...Looks like someone made your dream come true:[www.toplessrobot.com image 639x853]More info at Topless Robot's site
