    Looks pretty cool. Check it out here...

    I don't think I saw Pidge, either...

    wow, that was a super tiny video. but anyway, no cgi, no anime styled characters...I love it! the quality looked really good, the only thing I didn't like about it was how voltron seemed to have the updated thinner look. I much prefer the stockier, older style. when is this supposed to be coming out?

    I dunno... it was passed along to me through an email. I remember some small animation company saying they were hard at work on it a couple months ago, but I haven't heard anything yet. Wish it were bigger, but I really dig the old school vibe of it.

    Doesn't look too bad. Voltron's face seemed a little off, but other than that he looked good. Doesn't look any thinner than in the original show. The old toys were always a lot chunkier than the cartoon was drawn.

    Ditto.

    Looks pretty cool, mostly. I'm not digging the new design for Lotor's face.

    Would anyone besides me be a lot more excited to see an uncut release of Go Lion?

    Hmm guess you dunno that Voltron WAS AN ANIME CALLED GO LION!

    Anyway I'm waiting on it to download to see it.

    I'd love an uncut release of Go Lion, finding out about all that was cut, ending being used too much, DEATHS (Sven HE DIED, that was just somebody that looked like him and he died with Lotor)

    Okay views and I noticed some goofs, Lion colors were really off. The colors being Black, Red, Blue, Yellow & Green, I saw 2 red lions, black, green & blue. What was Keith doing getting into the Green lion? Also notice the outfit colors were off but won't get into that. Art style reminds me of Megas XLR. ( I really MISS that show, the ONLY good Cartoon Cartoon next to Courage)

    I'm a huge anime fan, and I have loved Go Lion/Voltron when I was young. This new look of the Voltron is imo a big let-down. For starter, it's not anime, and has a rather generic American cartoon style. The colors of the pilots seemed off (I counted 2 reds), and it has none of the energy of the old show. Just the way the sword is conjured alone is not that great, because in the old show it was a big deal when the sword is brought out, but here it is almost like an after-thought.

    I'll buy the MP Voltron, but I probably won't check out this new Voltron show.

    I'm all for the return of Voltron (again ;) ) , but something just threw me off.......I guess I don't much care for the way Voltron forms, or for that matter, looks.

    I know it's the animation style, and that the clip is only a promotional demonstration, so hopefully Voltron doesn't look like that. Also, not liking the mixing of the colours on the uniforms.

    Everything else looked pretty good though. :D  I like how they got the lions right. :thumbs2:

    I always wished they would have released that mouse Voltron as a toy.

    Looks like a combination of drab suck and He-Man.

    They could atleast have placed the "camera" more effective and given it a bit more kinetic juice.

    Yeah, pretty sucky. This just blows. A Voltron cartoon just doesn't work as anything other than an anime. Lots of it looked more like someone's flash animation than a real cartoon.
