Dustin first reported the big screen adaption of “Voltron” here, noting that “In short, it was retardation epitomized.” In short, I would quibble with that assessment. Because when I was short, “Voltron” was awesome.
Words cannot convey just how incredible the concept of giant robot lions that transform into a giant robot with a sword is to a six year old. The only way they could have made that concept better to a six year old would be if the cats pooped ice cream. That doesn’t mean that I think a live action adaptation of “Voltron” would be anything to write home about, any more than the desecration of Transformers was. In fact, I am comfortable going on record as saying that the result will be horrible, so horrible that there isn’t the slightest chance I would bother seeing it if Dustin doesn’t send me to review it (oh great, I know what I’m doing in May of 2013 now).
In any case, some concept art has been released, showing properly edgy versions of Voltron (click to embiggen).
Yep I do believe that giant robot lion is trying to make love to the Statue of Liberty.
