Who needs a plot about memories being wiped when you've got Steel and Spot the plant? This is Beast Morphers' best episode yet!

Power Rangers Beast Morphers Episode 19

We’re almost to the end of the Power Rangers Beast Morphers season so I can say without question that Steel is the Mvp of this season. I don’t know what it is with Power Rangers' robot characters but they’re always great! Blue Senturion, Robo Knight, and now Steel. Just seeing them try to interact with humans in childlike ways never fails to make me smile. Steel might edge out over the other robots because he was able to take the spotlight in an episode that in any other season would have had nothing to do with him.

The premise of ‘Rewriting History’ is fairly simple; the Rangers lose

‘Robotech Remix #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

  • Nerdly
Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics

I really didn’t want to like this reboot, or remix, of Robotech. I was so enjoying Simon Furman’s run that when it came to an end I was a bit annoyed. Yet another reboot I thought. Another cash grab first issue to tempt those speculators. I couldn’t be happier to say I was completely wrong. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into this remix, story threads old and new have been tied together, and the art style, though a complete contrast to the last run, is probably more appealing to diehard Robotech fans. It just works. Profuse apologies to editorial, who clearly knew what they were doing.

So far.

The theme of the first issue was beginnings. Big beginnings, in the sense that this was a new timeline, and smaller beginnings for Dana Sterling,

Power Rangers Beast Morphers Episode 17 Review: Gorilla Art

Power Rangers Beast Morphers Episode 17

The start of this episode has, hands down, the most effective scene of Power Rangers Beast Morphers yet. Ravi just having a quiet conversation with the comatose Roxi about his art. Unlike a lot of Beast Morphers that’s filled to the brim with dialogue explaining exactly what you’re seeing, this scene says so much with so little. He’s just casually pouring his heart out because, as we learn, she’s the only one in Grid Battleforce he ever confided in about his art.

There’s no question in his mind his mom will hate this idea so it rings painfully true when he desperately tries to hide it from Smash. He’s panicking, horrified someone would find out. This

The Dragon Prince Season 3 Review (Spoiler Free)

Back in my review of The Dragon Prince season 1 I said the series had a lot of potential. “A rich world, captivating characters, a beautiful score, and a central conflict that can drive seasons worth of stories.” Now, having finished the third season of the series, I can confidently state that no other show has lived up to the promise inherent in its first few episodes more.

The Dragon Prince season 3 is firing on all cylinders. Every single element of the series has clicked into place perfectly. Every line, every shot, every background, every music cue, everything just works. It’s a joy to watch. All the build up over the past two seasons is paid off in ways you won’t expect but will delight all the same. Plotlines other

She-Ra Season 4 Ending Explained

Shamus Kelley Nov 5, 2019

With the ending totally shifting the world of She-Ra, we go over exactly what happened in order to figure out where Season 5 will be going.

This article features nothing but She-Ra Season 4 spoilers. Read our spoiler-free review here.

Phew, have we all recovered from that ending yet? Boy, it took She-Ra Season 4 a few episodes to get going but once it did we got nothing but revelation after revelation about the world of Etheria, Hordak, She-Ra, and Horde Prime. That ending was so intense you may have missed a few details or have a ton of questions. I’m going to do my best to answer them.

What Happened To She-Ra’s Powers?

As Light Hope’s First Ones weapon was activated, She-Ra was being pulled into its power. It seemed that Entrapta was right, that Adora would have no say in being used as its conduit.

Where's Waldo Goes Full Power Rangers (Exclusive)

Shamus Kelley Oct 24, 2019

Waldo is ready to take on kaiju with a little help from a longtime Power Rangers writer!

We need to recruit a Waldo with attitude! The new animated series, DreamWorks Where's Waldo?, is about to pay tribute to the long running Tokusatsu genre in their newest episode 'Big in Japan.' Written by longtime Power Rangers writer John Tellegen (who worked on everything from Ninja Storm all the way through Rpm), the episode contains numerous sendups to the famous franchise. We've got an exclusive clip that features Waldo and Wenda pulling off some very Power Rangers like moves.

Robotech Finds New Home at Funimation

Shamus Kelley Oct 21, 2019

The cult classic sci-fi series may be leaving other streaming platforms as Funimation takes more control of the franchise.

Robotech will soon find itself a new home. After years streaming on various platforms including Amazon and Netflix, the sci-fi anime series has been licensed by Kew Media Distribution to Funimation. This includes the original 85 episodes and the films Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles and Robotech II: The Sentinels.

The press release states that, "upon expiration of existing third-party deals, this expansive agreement gives Funimation all rights worldwide, excluding Japan, to over 45 hours of the cutting-edge CGI anime."

Let's break down what that all means. First off, Robotech won't be leaving Netflix, Amazon, and other streaming services just yet. Those deals are still in effect and will be allowed to continue until the existing terms of them run out.

‘Robotech Remix #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

  • Nerdly
Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That was my first thought when I heard that Titan were replacing the excellent Robotech book with Robotech Remix. Since 2015, Brian Wood, Simon Furman, Marco Turini and Hendry Prasetya routinely turned in outstanding stories, both script and art wise. The characters were as well fleshed out as could have been expected with the animated source material. Like all good things though it came to an end, and on the plus side it never outstayed its welcome.

So, Robotech Remix clearly isn’t just going to be more of the same. At first glance, the art has reverted to the manga/anime style most commonly associated with Robotech, and the book is supposed to be a sequel of sorts to the last one, both of which liberally took as their

The Dragon Prince Is Getting An Art Book (Exclusive)

Shamus Kelley Sep 30, 2019

For fans of The Dragon Prince’s gorgeous world, you’re in for a treat.

The Dragon Prince is without question one of the most beautiful animated series on the air right now. Everything from the backgrounds, characters, props, creatures, it’s all amazing. Fans of the series have been clamoring to see more of The Dragon Prince's world and they’re about to get their wish.

Dark Horse and Wonderstorm are patterning together to create The Art of The Dragon Prince, a hardcore art book set to be released next summer. This book was assembled in consultation with co-creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond and executive producer Justin Santistevan. It promises to be “the ultimate window into the work behind the beloved show!”

"Aaron and I are excited to announce Wonderstorm's partnership with Dark Horse," said Justin Richmond, Wonderstorm founder and co-creator of The Dragon Prince.

‘Robotech #24′ Review (Titan Comics)

  • Nerdly
Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics

I’m still mightily impressed that, 24 issues in, this book not only continues to please long term and casual fan alike, but that it also can still throw surprises at us. Virtually every issue also brings a payoff for a long term simmering subplot, some that I’ve even forgotten, and that’s some great writing right there. The book has always been as much about the personal interactions as it has been about the widescreen space battles, and the balance has always been just right. I would imagine not too many mainstream comics readers thought to pick this book up, outside of already established Robotech fans, which is a shame, as it deserves more praise than it receives. Still, those of us who do read it can keep it as our little secret.

Event Horizon, the big Robotech event,

‘Power of Grayskull’ Review

  • Nerdly
There’s been a whole slew of television shows and documentary films about nostalgia lately, with many focusing on a number of toy-lines from the 80s and other decades of the past. The Toys That Made Us is likely the most well-known of the lot, landing on Netflix with two seasons so far, talking about toys from Star Wars to Lego to Transformers all the way to He-man. I am a nostalgia-head, a toy collector and a fan of the 80s, so when a chance to see this documentary, Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, came up, I jumped at it. A film talking about the history of the famous line of He-man toys from Mattel? I’m in. I grew up playing with wrestling figures, smashing Robotech toys together in a battle for supremacy, busting poltergeists with my Ghostbusters and kicking butt with my Hero Turtles.

Robotech: Remix Exclusive Nycc Variant Cover (Exclusive)

Shamus Kelley Sep 2, 2019

We've got an exclusive look at a cover for the new Robotech: Remix comic!

Robotech: Remix is fast approaching and fans are beyond hype. Following up on the events of Robotech: Event Horizon, Robotech: Remix will shift the focus onto Dana Sterling, the main character from the Masters Saga of the franchise. This is the first time in quite a long time a Masters character has gotten the spotlight in a Robotech comic and the fact that it's Dana? All the better, since she has the most potential to be explored, especailly after Event Horizon.

The Dana that will be starring in Robotech: Remix is from the future, well after The Masters Saga and even Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles. The fact an older Dana will now be hanging out with her parents... before she's even born? We can't wait to see all the things that will come with that!

‘Robotech #23′ Review

  • Nerdly
Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics

Last issue maintained the incredibly high standard that somehow this book has managed to continue over the last 2 years. With licensed properties it is so easy to just coast along on character and brand recognition, phone in some generic scripts and know the book will sell to diehard fans whatever. None of that with Robotech. From the start there has been a conscious attempt to build on previous stories, to really give the characters distinct voices, to provide a newer, different set of scenarios while maintaining the essence of Robotech itself. It’s worked well, and nothing emphasises this ‘bigger and better’ philosophy better than the current Event Horizon special event. It took an already excellent storyline and managed to supercharge it more.

So how do you build on a great story featuring alien invasions, clones,

Remixing the Robotech Saga

Shamus Kelley Jul 30, 2019

Writer Brenden Fletcher discusses Robotech's place in remix culture and how that influences his new comic.

For anyone fearing that the new Robotech: Remix comic will be headed up by a new creative team, don’t worry. A hardcore fan is at the helm. Writer Brenden Fletcher, known for his work in comics such as Gotham Academy, Batgirl, Isola, and Motorcrush loves Robotech.

Not just the Macross Saga like many more casual fans. He loves anything and everything to do with the franchise, including the various Japanese series that spun out of Macross and the original versions of the three anime that made up Robotech. Even thought Fletcher is a big fan that doesn’t mean he’s sticking too close to what we’ve seen before. Robotech: Remix will be making big changes to the Robotech franchise that comes in the wake of recent events in the comic.
