New "Voltron" coming from Netflix!

Recommended Posts

I did love Voltron as a kid. Really, really wish I still had my Voltron toys! They were highly coveted when I was in primary school.

 

 

I'll probably give it a bash, but something makes me think I won't be as into it as I'd like to be.

I think they both originally kicked off in the early 80s, and Voltron was pretty much an immediate success. I'm pretty sure I faked being sick an kinder to go home and watch it.

Didn't it take until the mid-90s for Zoids to really hit the Zeitgeist?

Either way...it's a way old property.

Dunno. By the mid nineties I was doing drugs and rooting shielas. Never heard of Zoids.

 

Voltron was early primary school time for me, along with Astro Boy and shit.

 

Edit: yeah, just chcked. Voltron was '84...I was 8.

I've watched the trailer now...I think it might shit on my memories of the original show. Which are no doubt rose-tinted, but still :(

So much makes sense - I was 32 , a couple nieces and nephews were really into that stuff :)

Really? Damn...I reckon it looks amazing!

I'm more than willing to be proved wrong!!!

(It Looks good, but the dialogue grates...of course the trailer is not a lot to go on. Besides, I won't be able to watch it til it gets to disc or FTA, so yeah, hope my first impressions are proven incorrect).

Awesome. I'll be watching it with my kids

 

The earlyish 80's, the golden age of kids cartoons. Fucking Voltrons (both of em), thundercats, astroboy, robotech, mysterious cities of gold, and STAR BLAZERS.

It looks like it might be aimed at... adults, moreso than kids? idk.

 

Sorry to say, stuub, but... that's a netflix original. It may never appear on FTA.

Watched the first few eps with the kids this afternoon. Better than I expected; kept getting comments like 'are they copying Attack on Titan? Because they just said x', hah

Oh, yeah...this dropped on AU Netflix last Friday evening.

I binged the entire 11-episode season that night.

*LOVED* it. Plenty of nods to the original series, while solidly sticking the landing as a fresh, new cartoon. Great design work, and a ripper of a score.

Looking forward to watching it again.
