OK, that's pretty interesting. What does this mean in the long run?

For one thing it means Haim Saban no longer owns it, so maybe Japanese games like FF 15 are free to make sentai inspired costumes again without fear of his zealous legal action

Really odd question that I have no faith in it being an actuality regardless, but just a thought; does this make the White Ranger an easier license to get for Warner Bros/Netherrealm for the next Mortal Kombat?

I recall along Spawn and Hellboy, the White Ranger was hotly requested, which I'm guessing came solely from the ridiculousness that was this.



And I'm sure people have moved on and forgotten about that by now, but you never know.  They've been getting pretty out there with the people joining Injustice 2.

Considering Hasbro is first and foremost a children's entertainment company, I very much doubt that the first thing they're going to do with their new property is license it out to the goriest video game franchise in history.

Aren't they also the same ones that gave a Transformer testicles to aim at?

But yeah, I wasn't expecting it to pull through, just Hasbro has been more lenient to risqué use of their properties than Saban was with Power Rangers.

Hey now, Michael Bay gave that Transformer nuts. Hasbro just made sure the money was still rolling in.

I think Injustice is there specifically for characters like the White Ranger, so I don't see it likely that they would use him in Mortal Kombat. When you think about the guest characters in MK there's a reason it usually skews to horror movie villains like Freddy Krueger and Jason. The one outlier is Kratos and he had so many restrictions on fatalities it was laughable

Well it’s official. Cartoon Network has lost its creativity (and will lose the entire fan base soon)

I know the mandatory reaction to any new kids show is for adults to rant about it being a harbinger of the death of all art, but let's not pretend that fucking Thundercats ever had a ton of artistic integrity in the first place.  It was a toy commercial from the '80s.  If they want to make it goofy, then I say go right ahead.  Who cares.

I am super excited for that Thundercats! I mean, I love the original but I'm really glad that it's living on in some way.

Plus, that animation/art style is really great, I have no doubt I will enjoy it.

Rhis reminds me how surprised I am over the isekai genre not doing a thundercats homage like they did to heman. I mean, it's fuckign cat people you think it would have been done right away, instead we got "reincarnated as a polar bear"

Y'know the animation looks decent, even though a good deal of it comes from the simplistic redesigns.

Is there any point to be positive or negative about it given it's just gonna be buried under endless TTG reruns

I love this idea. If anyone remembers, the last time they did a serious take on Thundercats, it didn't even last a whole season. Why not give this a shot?

Surprisingly tamer reactions than I was expecting after learning about this.  I can't agree with it looking good, like, at all, copying what works for Adventure Time or Steven Universe and pasting it over a previous entity will not work.  I'll give it a look simply because I loved the original and curiosity will bug me if I don't, but it's gonna be hard to expect it not to land somewhere between O.K. K.O. and Teen Titans Go.

It's just funny to me to consider the latest relevancy for Thundercats actually wasn't that long ago, with it finally crossing over with He-Man and going dead serious with Lion-O getting his eye gouged out and He-Man just straight-up gets murdered, and before that was the interesting if fairly different 2011 anime, which even lasted some time after it ended with reruns on Toonami, so it's not like it's a long forgotten franchise.  Heck, isn't there still a supposed theatrical movie in the works?  Likely to come out when the Spawn movie and Half-Life 3 do, but still.

I just want to say this now though, that smooshed body on Lion-O and to an extent the rest makes it really hard to take seriously he's supposed to be an adult, even with the more child-proportioned WilyKit and Kat as comparison.  The Sword of Omens not extending to an actual sword, just staying in dagger form, doesn't help either.

very relevant post since people are freaking the fuck out on the internet over a reboot meant for kids.

"It’s okay to see a reboot of a thing you loved as a kid, decide that this new version isn’t for you, and leave it to the next generation without comment. Encouraged even."

"I’m not into the design of the new Ninja Turtles cartoons, but I went to a friend’s house and his kid was obsessed with that show. That version of those characters is the only one he’s ever known. It’s cool, they’re his turtles now. Tastes change. Life goes on."

thank god someone has common sense about all of this

personally, im glad that its getting this kinda twist to it. the last reboot sucked ass, it really did despite the gorgeous art style

I was more focused on reading the comments than watching the video since its mostly the same complaint with Teen Titans Go.

So fans are calling this reboot tumblrcats or tumblrcucks?  :lol:
