Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

Alright, here we go.

Usual disclaimer about me being terrible at taking photos, and having a messy desk.

I've used the same Wheeljack for size comparison.

I've also used the same cat. She's loose but in fairly good condition, and for once, was able to sit still for more than 2 minutes.









So all up, pretty nice.

I'm really concerned about space though. I don't have enough room for these monstrosities!

I watched it all from start to finish and, in all honesty, I found it to be the best of all three series.

V:DotU was unwatchably painful for me since the voices, dialogue, writing, editing, and certain plots all wrecked of the some of the worst 1980's cartoon styles that made them absolutely atrocious. The animation was good, though. Never saw the Vehicle Voltron series since the reruns only aired the Lion episodes. but I did see the Fleet of Doom special, in which Vehicle Voltron seemed criminally underportrayed, since it seemed to be the cooler of the two Voltrons in that special.

V:T3D was a bit subpar in the animation department, but EPIC in the writing and voice acting! Tim Curry was an excellent Lotor and Kevin Micheal Richardson turned Zarkon into a Magnificent Dastard. Also helped that the returning voice cats had significantly improved since their time on the first series. The whole angle of the Voltron Lion Force being gradually viewed as renegades by Galaxy Garrison was cool, especially when they were put on trial and it was Coran who (in his shining moment of all time) defended them diligently. And I LIKED Stealth Voltron. Especially in that one episode where they go to an "almost-but-not-quite-Shattered Glass-type" dimension in which we got to see two Voltrons face against each other. icon-ironhide.gif

With Voltron Force, I got the best of both. Decent (but not terrible) animation with intriguing (and at time engaging) plots and character arcs, as well as top notch voice acting. Of all three series, this one seemed to be the one with the most effort put into it, with plenty of homages to the previous shows, along with some new appeal to it. The cadet were not bad in the slightest, and were oftentimes used competently. They were not kids, but teenagers (with attitude icon-waspy.gif ), and each added something new to the team that came in handy quite often.

And, no matter what anyone says, Pidge was completely a child in in the first series, not a small person, a child. So these cadets get a pass since they are older than Pidge was when first he started piloting in V:DotU.

The homages were spread throughout the series, each one coming when least expected. Off the top of my head, a few examples include playing the classic theme song for the combination sequence starting at episode 13, Wade taking over the Galaxy Alliance and labeling Voltron as an enemy a la Zarkon in V:T3D (this notion is what made me kinda hope Wade was a still-alive King Zarkon in disguise, but nope), Haggar's face in the Haggarium nebula, Commander Cossack returning (with a more militant personality instead of the eccentric coward he was in V:DotU), a King Zarkon statue in Lotor's throne room, King Alfor's spirit ghost mentoring Allura in his tomb, the Lion Head Attack in the final episode of season 1, and the Castle of Lions turning into its warship mode in the same episode. icon-fire.gif

The animation honestly did not bother me. The designs seemed to fit their personalities well enough, and the CGI was just fine. Well, okay, the CGI movements were a bit shaky at times, but not unbearable.

The voice acting was superb! I think people has said enough of Garry Chalk as Sky Marshall Wade, so I'll instead talk about Mark Hildreth as Lotor. In a word: PERFECT! Forget Lennie Weinrib, Mark Hildreth IS Lotor! While Tim Curry was also very good, and even made him come off as being charasmatic in a way, Mark Hildreth just excellently captures Lotor's menacing side, along with his charm and ambition.

Something else I really liked was how this show does not try to hide death. AT ALL. The characters casually use the words "death", "dead", "die", "died", "kill", "killed", etc. They even shoot Lotor dead in Lance "I'm forming the head?!" episode. On screen murder, ladies and gentlemen. icon-bee.gif Of course, he's resurrected (again) later in the episode, but still, they *shot* him dead on screen.

Now, all this praise isn't o say that there aren't things that I don't like. For starters, I kinda felt Green Center being ninja-themed was kind of a icon-blitz.gif moment. Black is normal (energy-based?), Red is fire-based, Yellow is earth-based, and Blue is water-based, so wouldn't Green better fit as an elemental base as well? And "Boomerang Shield" is probably the silliest of the five finishing attacks, so it kinda bugged me how easily and quickly it disposed of the Predator RoBeast during it rematch with Voltron (which, BTW, was also rather abrupt). There's also the fact that season 1 really felt like it was building up to something bigger for another season and ended with aquick cliffhanger, so if there's no season 2, this new plot thread will be left unresolved. And the theme song is icon-kicker.gif . I always fast forwarded through it. Imaging how much cooler another update to the original opening sequence with Garry Chalk as the narrator (like what they did with V:T3D's first opening with Kevin Michael Richardson as the narrator) would have been.

But, all in all, Voltron Force was, IMHO, the best of all three Voltron series, and I do wish to see it continue. And, who know, should it continue, maybe the makers have heard these criticisms and will work to make it better for future episodes to come. One can only hope.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Really a lot of us here have some very large Nostalgia glasses on around here. When I was a kid I loved DotU and had about 3 or 4 pairs of little Voltron Tennis Shoes (I was very young during the first run so toys were still a ways off). Today while I love the concept still I can't get myself to sit through more than the first few episodes. Despite obvious animation flaws which some of us seem not to be able to forgive, Voltron Force isn't that bad of a next gen series. I'm not married to the One version of Voltron combining and having the other four forms save for Green center was pretty cool. Yellow center barely passes for good.

My biggest beef other than the cadets replacing the classic characters just for the sake of giving it to the next generation was the horrible character retcons. Namely Pidges's home planet being home to scientist ninjas icon-blitz.gif But I really want them to finish their whole origins of Voltron deal here. If they cut this off before exploring the last planet I'm gonna be a tad irked.

Not really sure how that would work with the whole changing center gimmick. Either option (lions all the same size or keeping the sizes as they always have been) would likely lead to a Voltron with horrible proportions in at least 4 out of 5 modes.

As someone who didn't grow up in the 80's and finds the original Voltron, Thundercats, G.I. Joe and even G1 Transformers goofy as all hell... It's because it wasn't just a bad reboot, it was also simply a bad show. Renegades, TFA and New!Thundercats all had great animation, solid writing and characterization, and/or actual effort put into the series (Renegades had the best balance of good animation and writing, Thundercats had the best animation, and TFA had the best plotting). This show had none of those.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.
