    Nice Dinner guys!

    I totally forgot about the MOTU commercial raps in 1987...MOTU tried to become hip. Gone are the warrior chants, now we got raps on the beach...

    I like the insights into Faker being used more in Filmation, especially because Filmation likes to re-use so much stock footage. The Eternian junkyard cracks are priceless! "Go to Randor's junkyard and see what he throws out!" Faker is the equivalent of an artist balling up a bad drawing and throwing it in the trash.

    I think Mattel is trying to make the Trollans and Orko into more serious characters. It's really apparent now with the whole Orko ad and bio, which references the idea that Orko's "Jar-Jar Binks" stuff is an act and that the Trollans are serious characters. I think it works--instead of rolling your eyes whenever Orko takes up screentime, he's now someone you want to watch.

    I totally forgot to say something to my POP loving bretheren on the podcast.
    I'll try to raise it nest time as I think it's valid point.

    You are very welcome Lee-Man!

    The New Gods parrells you're looking for are definately there. Zodac is the most obvious, as the New Gods have a character named Meteron who is an (supposedly) unbiased observor who flies around in a cool chair.

    Not really.

    In Vintage and MYP he's still a clown that doesn't do that much of serious note. He was intended as comic relief and his new bio doesn't change his role in older media.

    Perhaps if we EVER get some kind of media for MOTUC, my opinion will have the opportunity to be changed.

    Nah, not really. At least, it's not working on me. He's still a goof...and not in a good way.

    MYP Mer-Man was voiced by Scott McNeil, who also did the voice for Waspinator on Beast Wars. That's why he sounds so similar.

    That's what I mean. If any new show uses the idea that Orko is actually competent and is only pretending to be a clown.

    These are coming fast! Downloading.

    EDIT

    Ok, right off-the-bat...why it being stated that we missed She-Ra's 25th anniversary by one year? While the toys are copyrighted 1984, didn't the toys and cartoon get released to the public in 1985?

    How could you guys not know that the voice of Mer-Man in the 200x cartoon WAS the same guy who did Waspinator (Scott McNeil). He didn't just do Waspinator on Beast Wars, though. He also did Rattrap, Dinobot and Silverbolt.

    Speaking of Beast Wars, Man-At-Arms was voiced by Gary Chalk, the guy who voiced Optimus Primal (making bother characters sound nearly identical). For fans of Beast Wars like myself, MOTU felt a little bit like some weird reunion of voices.

    EDIT: I should read the thread before posting, lol.

    True, but you guys seemed to at least know what Waspinator sounded like. I honestly thought that bit of trivia was common knowledge, or at least known enough that one of the four of you would have spoken up.

    I could have swore they had an initial release at the end of 84.
    But if not, that one is totally my fault because I swore by it, even though Emiliano was like "Are you sure?"

    I had prepped the show with that info because I had read the voicemail ahead of time, and the rest of the guys didn't have reason to double check.
    I should have listened to Emiliano and let him go through his records.
    Sorry.

    Because I've never kept up with actor names or their credits.

    Gary Chalk was also He-Man on New Adventures. He was also the chief of security for Bartok Industries in The Fly II. It was weird hearing Man-At-Arms curse and say sexual innuendoes.

    Yeah, I should have insisted more for double checking about that!

    Yep, sorry. Dunno where my brain was at.
    I dunno why we've always had them listed as '84 on the Toy section as well.
    Must just be an old hold-over from the early days, and it hasn't been updated since.

    I fixed my mistake on the show.
    And looks like I'm making a blanket apology at the beginning of episode 5.

    Yeah, I knew he was NA He-Man. Wasn't he also Optimus in the Armada cartoon? I think I know that, because that cartoon came out at the same time as 200x MOTU, and I remember some talking about it.

    FYI - Ragnarok was indeed a robot Thor clone that first appeared in the Marvel Civil War series a few years back...he was also referred to loosely as "Clor"...and if memory serves, Thor has since destroyed him...

    That was always one of my biggest problems with the new cartoon. I just couldn't listen to the Adam and Man-at-Arms dialogues without thinking "Leonardo is talking to Optimus Prime."

    Yeah, Gary was Optimus for almost 10 years, voicing the character in Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Armada, Energon and Cybertron.

    I knew there was something I forgot to mention...Thor seemingly destroyed Ragnarok at the end of Siege.

    Kind of surprised to hear no mention of He-Ro's appearance in Hordak's bio.

    The bit with Mer-Man having a cloaking device was my favorite.

    I'm listening to this right now on my Itunes and I'm getting some overlaps in voices here. Is that you guys or my Itunes? I'm at 22 minutes in. I also got a like a long minute of silence. At 24 minutes it's clear and fine.

    And of course, I'm going to get razzed for it, but just thought I would mention it.
    We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!
