All good here, I don't work that far into the city.

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

origin felt like its writer was just waiting for someone to come along and fill in the gaps for him

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

The 'acys have no excuse for their terribleness.

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

Megatron Origin gave us Megatron's lovely locks, so that's something. It wasn't horrible, but being condensed down to four issues really hurt it

Megatron Origin is super disappointing if you go in right after reading Chaos Theory/MtMtE...

@  Telly : (19 March 2017 - 09:34 PM)

just read the megatron origin series. that really shouldve been 6 issues. it was very choppy and some things couldve used some further explaining

A mullet? Really?

Typically, the hair from the 80s cartoon is supposed to be stupider.

And wasn't she the medic of the ThunderCats? Now she's a angsty gladiator?

While I hated those Wildstorm comics (save the Origins mini), I thought the name "Doberlord" was hilariously awesome. So I kinda would like it if they carried that over, yearh.

I was trying to remember earlier today if she had some kind of job. Really, after a couple years stranded on Third Earth, other lady on the team was probably role that everyone appreciated.

Previews are up on Thundercats.org as well as design sheets of Pumyra, Dobo, and some of the dog gladiators. Great designs, btw. Love how much of their armor is made of discarded technology they no longer know how to use.

Was the "mace for head" robot guy a hommage from the old show, btw?

Umm, I fail to see any significant difference in her hairstyle compared to the old version.

And the whole hatred against Lion-O (and maybe the whole royal family?) just makes her more interesting. Wonder what caused that...

Dan Norton has uploaded tons and tons of designs, sketches, and even early concept art of characters and vehicles from the show, it's worth checking out - even a lot of minor characters are there like the Drifter, the Duelist, Khamai, Shen... Oh, and guide on how the Berbils transform!

Also, LIon-O's mom was supposed to be called Leona, but much like with Chrysalis in MLP FiM, it was never used in the show.

"The Pit": Good A-plot (and unsurprisingly a bit of Panthro's background this time, albeit without the flashback scenes...just stills). Wretched B-plot.

The Thunderkittens sub-plot took way too much time away from the main story.

I really hope Pumyra sticks around beyond the freeing of the Thundarians from Plundarr Mines.

My thoughts are kinda random on this episode. I'm not sure I could make a cohesive review on it. So I think I'll just leave you all some some of these tid bits.

Cheetara: She must have survived the fall of Thundera.
Me: Now, now! Let's not jump to conclusions. It's entirely possible she died.

The cats don't seem to like the gladitorial arena...because...you know...it's so barbaric...unlike that ringing the bell game they had in Thundera.

And darn it all, Pumyra seems to have gotten my furry fetish in an uproar again.....but you'll never hear me say that out loud <_<

I absolutely must go through the entire season and count how many times Wilhelm's bought it.

I'm not really sure I care for the resolution. The build up was great and all, but it seems Pumyra and Dobo had a change of heart just a bit too easily.

Eh, it's a slight improvement, as it looks like hair, instead of some sort of weird dead animal on her head. Plus, it doesn't look like she has a bad make up job, but it looks like its part of her colorations.

Don't get me wrong, I don't love the look, but it is a decent attempt to update the horrible look she originally had.

My question is when exactly Panthro was a slave of the Dogs? It must've been some adventure he was one before he adn Grune went on their world tour. I liked how they did the flashback with lots of vague shapes; they were cutting their enemies up with axes while working around the gore. Nice bit of direction to meet BS&P.


Or not. Panthro & Grune were apparently gone for a long time. After Panthro & Grune parted company, he could have been forced into slavery. Grune & Mumra didn't immediately attack Thundera, because Mumra had to build his army of lizard people.

Or at least that a guess where you could fit this in.

I hate to say it, but I know how you feel...

I like that she's got a good deal of characterization. Bitter, a fighter, and still hopeful, as given by the ending. I just hope we keep her (and any other rescued slaves) on as part of the full team. I mean, Thundertank didn't just quintuple in size to be cool after all.

I have to admit though, as much as I get bored with the kittens antics, the Cleptovoyancy idea is something I have GOT to use in D&D.
