    We've got Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, ATLA (aka the movie that shall not be named) G.I. Joe, George of the Jungle (that was a great movie)even the craptastic Smurfs movie. What would you like to see get its own movie?

    She-Ra would be cool.
    Jem-truly outrageous! but with the 80s look and sound please.
    Biker Mice From Mars might be fun
    Gargoyles! X3

    That's all I can think of atm

    I'll throw in a vote for She-Ra, and also DragonFlyz and Shadow Raiders.

    I'm going with that one as well. While occasionally one of these films can bring the joy you had for something from childhood for the most part these type of films just disappoint because the studio wanted the name without really understanding why people liked it in the first place.

    While MASK might seem cool at first it's likely the studio would end up making it a mess like the GI Joe movies.

    Already underway, dude. From the same guy that directed the last GI Joe.

    No more, seriously. They've not really been anything more than decent at best and more often then not they're missing the spirit of what made them good in the first place. If anything, the movies are distorting the childhood series of old, since it's pretty much what's killed off GIJOE.

    Like, the first two seasons that were good, or the questionable third season that had them all racing for some reason instead?

    1- Dino Riders
    2- Dino Riders
    3- Dino Riders

    Look at the bright side. It will revive the interest in the franchise and we will get re releases of the old cartoons and overall it'll be cool to talk about it again after years of obscurity and very small fandoms.

    To be honest, as I've already been saying for years, I'd kill for a properly done live action version of Gargoyles. If there is any cartoon that is perfect for live action movie transition, it's that one. Keep it gritty, ensure every gargoyle is done with motion capture, and use all the original cast of voices since they're all still kicking around. Hell, even the script(s) could be directly based off the original show - just chopped up & rearranged where/when necessary.

    Gatchaman should get a GOOD movie.

    GI Joe should get a GOOD movie.

    Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors could be cool.


    Mighty Orbots as a live-action movie would be great if only because it would force them to get off their ass and release the cartoon on dvd. :D

    Dragon Ball (done right for God's sake)

    The Centurions (Man and Machine, Power Extreme!)

    Captain Planet (with James Cameron in charge)

    Birdman (not the Attorney at Law cartoon, its HB predecessor)

    Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt :) D it'd be the greatest thing ever!)

    Johnny Quest (the ultimate kids' adventure)

    Gargoyles (with Jonathan Frakes as live-action Xanatos and the the clans returning to reprise their voices)

    The Rose of Versailles (a dramatic cartoon with a sad ending - just right for adaptation)

    Please, just no. They've done enough to desecrate great cartoons in recent history.

    Off the top of my head
    M.A.S.K
    MegasXLR (because if they are going to keep doing Giant Robot movies, they might as well make a fun one)
    Space Ghost Based on the DC Mini Series from a few years back.
    [​IMG]IIt's basically Space superBatman Warner should be all over this.

    That could either be great or the worst abomination yet.

    Wasn't Pole Position an old videogame?
