This still breaks my heart.
We were off to such a hot as hell start..... it was like the toys were selling out like crazy then they screwed up the ratios and kept pumping them out like that, and while stores had issues with peg warming.... WB kept putting these long as hell hiatus' on the show and then had no idea what to do with it and forgot it even existed.
Anyone who thinks there is still hope for the line and the show is gunna be sorely let down. Especially after the cryptic messages Dan Norton wrote in one of his drawings called "Final-O".
The new show was beautiful. There was ALOT of filler, and stupid decisions made in it yes, but it was light years better than any cartoon on TV currently IMO. Just when things were starting to even out it falls over night, much like Thundera. The new series as a show and merchandise didnt even last a year.... and its a shame.
The plus side is Mezco and Diamond are still keeping the plate warm with some beautiful statues and minimates, even if they arent your cup of tea, they are keeping the light on. The original series still has ALOT of life left in it, and prehaps WB should turn that back on. Maybe pick up where that left off with the RIGHT team this time.
Its doubtful WB will tap back into creating anything again for the Cats any time soon though, and a movie seems like a pipedream :/ It took over 20+ years for them to come back, hope it wont be as long next time.
