It’s more moody than anything, but  hey, Voltron hype is real! And if you’ve been holding off all this time, here’s your chance to watch the whole darn thing in one sitting! Good luck with that.

And Here’s a Bunch of SDCC TV Trailers!

San Diego Comic-Con keeps rolling along, and it keeps producing quick and easy trailers on YouTube that I can share! I love trailers, and I hope you do too, because here’s a bunch of them for upcoming TV shows!

First up, a full trailer for Disenchanted, the new cartoon from Matt Groening. It looks…OK. A lot of simple jokes. But I have faith. The show goes up on Netflix on Aug. 17.

Then there’s a trailer for the next season of Voltron, which looks awesome. I love this series and can’t wait to buy the Voltron LEGO set in a week! Hopefully I’ll have it in time to watch this new season on Aug. 10!

Then how about the new season of Young Justice. Looks pretty neat. I enjoyed the show the first time it was around, but wasn’t such a super fan that I’m foaming at the mouth over Outsiders. But hey, I’ll always take some nice DC animated superhero stuff.

Then we’ve got a new season of The Venture Bros. coming up. I love the show, but I continue to be annoyed at the release schedule. Every other animated show produces new episodes every year. What is it about The Venture Bros. that requires several years between seasons?

The new season starts Aug. 5.

Finally, here’s a glimpse at upcoming DuckTales episodes. Further fuel for my Disney Expanded Cartoon Universe hopes and dreams!

Oy vey, that was a lot of trailers. And I’m sure there will be more today! So keep tuning in to the madness as I try to keep up!

LEGO Voltron is Everything I’ve Ever Wanted From This Sad, Stupid World

The day I’ve been waiting nearly two years for has arrived: LEGO Voltron stands revealed! The massive, multi-lion LEGO set will be available to purchase on Aug. 1 for about $180.

And people think we’re not allowed to have nice things

Oh man, I’ve been salivating over this. It’s a work of freakin’ art! I was a big Voltron fan as a kid, and I’m a big fan of the current revival on Netflix. I had all of the Voltron lion action figures as a kid. They were such fun toys.

Now Voltron is coming in LEGO form, in a giant model that stands over a foot tall! And you’ll be making each individual lion, with the ability to combine them into Voltron later. That is genius and awesome and life isn’t supposed to be this much fun.

Check out more pictures and information on the LEGO website.

The individual lions look a little small

If you can recall, Voltron was one of the LEGO Ideas products, which lets fans build their own models and submit them for selection. It’s the same way we got Doctor Who LEGO and Ghostbusters LEGO. I love that this thing exists and I love that it’s given us Voltron.

Granted, we don’t get the Paladins as mini-figs, which is disappointing. But I can live with that sort of disappointment.

I might have to take the day off from work. Or the week…

Holy Guacamole! Voltron LEGO!!

Stop all the presses! Hold all your horses! Pump all the brakes! LEGO is going to make Voltron! Freakin’ Voltron!

Jump to 1:35 in the video!

This will be through that LEGO Ideas program, which previously gave us Ghostbuster and Doctor Who LEGOs. Now they’re going to make a huge, expensive, Voltron model.

And I’m going to buy it and I’m not going to regret it. Holy heck.

Voltron Trailer Seeks to Reclaim My Childhood

Voltron was one of my favorite cartoons as a child…but I don’t remember anything about it. Obviously I remember the basic premise and stuff, but I can’t recall any episodes or storylines or when I watched it or what I liked about it. But hey, Netflix is bringing it back for a Voltron revival!

Looks like fun, I’ll probably watch. I’ve watched all the other attempts to revive Voltron, either via cartoon or comic book. And I’m a big fan of Netflix binging, so count me in! Hopefully they do justice to the Princess Allura storyline in the beginning. It looks like they might be trying to make it a surprise.
