Voltron – Monstariam

Any art work from the 80s anime show will surely get my blood pumping, and that is exactly what Mosntariam has done. They went ahead with some cool retro Voltron work and it looks amazing. I checked out the other items they had some of them are pretty cool, I got the Jungar piece as a gift so I was always looking for something cool. Then I saw the Voltron pieces and ordered them all, it was insanely cool to get them.

I asked for all colors of the print including the one with all of them combined. This was delivered in Kuwait in some very cool packaging, I liked what they did and then they delivered it to my office in a few days after I ordered the prints. Now all I need is the wall space to place all this amazing work, there are too many things hanging on the wall at the moment, I need more office space.

Voltron – THE END

I always have the music of Voltron playing in my head after they win, never had I thought that they would meet their end, its just incomprehensible. What if Voltron meets a horrific fate? Director Alex Albrecht ponders this doomsday scenario in his new fan movie, Voltron: The End, which stars Timothy Omundson (Carlton Lassiter from Psych).

The New Voltron

Now any news about Voltron gets me excited, I love when they remake an animation from back in the day. In this case it’s Voltron and every kid loved Voltron, I even remember picking up the 5 lion toy piece set from Shamiya Co-op and putting it together to form Voltron. This is the first look of Voltron and I think they are really bringing it the future, and keeping in mind it will be targeting an older audiences since all the fans are adults at this point. These concept drawings for the movie aren’t exactly what the movie will turn into but I’m assuming pretty similar, I’m hoping for it to be a damn good movie, its supposed to be released some time in 2013.

Voltron Movie & TV Show

Voltron

Its revival of the 80s cartoons, I just can’t believe how good this is going to be. First the Thundercats come back on Cartoon Network, and now they are bringing back Voltron, well a different bunch of people are. Now they are working on a new animated feature, and the movie is being worked on as well, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done for the movie, they want to get the right story, a character driven story, and the effects and lion robot eye candy will come together around it. It seems the people working on it will learn from the mistakes of Transformers and G.I.Joe, and Voltron is going to end up being one of the best 80’s cartoon adaptations that we’ve seen so far. Its slated to be released for the 2013 target with the TV show being a build up for it.

The new show will be called Voltron Force, and it will air 26 half-hour episodes next year on Nicktoons. I’m just hoping that both adults and kids can watch it, I don’t want it being too kiddy because its airing on Nicktoons and destroying all of my past love for Voltron, my original love of anime before I even knew that anime was. The series follows five space explorers who pilot robotic lions that combine to form Voltron, an invincible guardian sworn to defend the Universe. The series will remain faithful to the old show, while introducing new recruits to fight alongside the original characters.

My Top Retro Cartoons

ThundercatsHeroesandVillains

There was always something special about the cartoons back in the day, I would be stuck to the screen. I remember Mumra from Thunder Cats really scared me and pissed me off, I don’t know how many things I broke swinging a stick around saying “Thunder Cats, Thunder Cats, Thunder Cats! HOOOOOOO!”, I remember even hitting our Sony Tri-Color TV back in the day, and it weighed around 60 Kgs.

My List

  • Thunder Cats – The best cartoon of the 80s, Panthera was cool always making gadgets and still kicking ass
  • Voltron – The best of the 80s
  • Silver Hawks – They were really cool!
  • Centurions – Man and Machine Power Extreme! I wanted to be Ace McCloud, always wanted to fly!
