You are correct sir! The Netflix Lion Voltron is awesome, but back in the ‘80s, Vehicle Voltron/ Dairugger XV had better enemy robots, better animation art, and no silly space mice.
True, the mantises (Kamacuras) and spider (Kumonga) were the best part of Son of Godzilla. It was an unfortunate decision on the part of Toho to try to save money on the Godzilla movies of the later ‘60s by featuring tropical island settings to lessen the need for extensive miniature cities to be built. Fortunately…
The trouble with the concept of Godzilla and his Kaiju pals existing in their present gigantic forms back in the earlier eras of humanity (as opposed to being smaller and more primitive themselves, eg: the Godzillasaurus in 1991’s “Godzilla vs King Ghidorah”) is that they’re already pretty much invulnerable to modern…
It’s also interesting how the witches signing their names in Satan’s book during their “Dark Baptisms” replaces the concept of them actually having sex with the Devil, as is traditionally considered a prerequisite for witchhood. Obviously the author/showrunner is occasionally playing fast and loose with historical…
“The last of the V8 Interceptors.”
Stand alone episodes set in the Star Trek universe: excellent idea.
As dorky as it sounds, it was a big thrill when I finally got a car (2005 Subaru WRX) that had actually been a Transformers toy.
-Ahem - we prefer “Morlocks”, thank you very much.
Despite the challenges that would exist around plotting a Boba Fett movie, I still feel that should’ve been the second SW Story film instead of Solo. Rogue One established that a creative departure from the typical SW formula could still make money, and if a Fett film continued that (eg: a plot that focused on…
I actually prefer Predator 2, in spite of its flaws and over-the-top action cheese. I never really bought into Danny Glover’s character as being a worthy match for a Predator, even a young and inexperienced one, as the one in P2 supposedly was, but it was still a fun movie that mostly honored the rules of the first…
Looks like there’s still going to be only two legit Predator movies in my universe. Duly noted.
Yeah, the Soul of Chogokin Golion is pretty much the definitive toy of the character, IMO.
I was referring to the transformation of the individual parts, like the red/green lions forming the arm-shapes and the black lion forming the shoulders/head. This is done on the Bandai toy, for example, via perfect transformation, but apparently not on the Lego version.
NEW! - this fall from CBS All Access:
“-But other components, like the black lion’s four legs, need to be completely removed, pivoted, and re-attached in order to transform Voltron into a robot.-“
I suspect that the majority of Voltron fandom - those who just enjoy the show for what it is without even being aware of the behind-the-scenes intricacies and debates - is not being “torn apart” quite so dramatically.
Indeed - kind of weird none of that was mentioned in the article. I kept expecting to see Whitaker’s name at least.
Curious to see if the actress playing Kim is going to complete the look by wearing lipstick on her upper lip only.
