Aliens and felines—or should we say, extra-furrestrials—are the theme of this week's episode of Syfy's Monster Man, tonight at 10/9C. The family business is tasked with turning Wee Man into a being from beyond Earth, then building a one-story high statue of Puss in Boots.
We've brought you the astounding action figure oil paintings of artist Robert Burden before, but the dude just keeps getting better. He's done Voltron, Battle Cat from Masters of the Universe and even G.I. Joe's Serpenter, and now he's back with a 6-feet tall, 11-feet wide ThunderCats masterpiece.
It might be a little blurry, given that it was snatched on the run at the London Toy Fair, but this is the first good look at what Cartoon Network has in mind for Lion-O and the refugees from Thundera.
It seems like, these days, the best way to pry first looks at beloved geek franchises from the studios is to have someone grab a shoddy, not-ready-for-primetime image and post it all over the net. Worked with X-Men: First Class and now it's worked for ThunderCats.
Lion-o is back, and so is the slimy (really, really slimy) Slithe, in this test footage for the CGI movie version of Thundercats. Although the words "Thundercats reboot" is enough to send shivers down most spines, this clip will actually make you smile.
We've seen still images, we've seen the toys, we've seen the test footage, but here's the first official trailer showing Lion-O and his merry band of Thunderans in action. And a couple of characters we weren't sure were going to make an appearance raise their snarfy heads.
At this past weekend's WonderCon la-di-da, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network unveiled a deeper look into their updated ThunderCats series, which has an distinct Avatar: The Last Airbendery vibe. And that is not a bad thing in the least.
