I used to freakin’ LOVE this ‘toon! This was an amazing and rejuvenating re-visit. Cup of nostalgia anyone?
Back in the heyday of Hasbro and every toy has an action figure. Each company trying to outdo the competition with gimmicks and tv shows dedicated to their product line. It was fun being a kid in the 80s, and holograms were the shit back then!
And what a surprise, only now i find out that most of the voice talents of this cartoon came from G.I. Joe and The Transformers.
The iconic (hard to forget even if you try) Chris Latta aka Cobra Commander aka Starscream does the voice of Cravex. AND Peter Cullen aka Optimus Prime is in this too!
Virulina will forever be the HOT evil ” shark” chick.
NOTE: The voices of the “extras” were HILARIOUS!!! Like bad porn.
It’s a shame the show only lasted 13 episode… Solid start but the latter episodes were laughable. Besides the cliche dialogue and silly humor, this had some great action and creative weaponry. A nice mix of Magic and technology.
