After three months of Crunchyroll

A little bit of Digimon Tri. A tad of Monster Hunter. A handful of Dragon Ball Super. And a heck of a lot of Kyatto Ninden Teyandee, which, for those who don't know, is the Japanese version of Samurai Pizza Cats, a franchise I adored as a kid. That was my time with Crunchyroll this year.

So, I got to thinking, should I try to do more cartoon reviews here? I mean, the main focus of this blog will always be artwork, but I've got a real hankering to watch some old and new cartoons. I did do a few episode reviews of Dino-Riders awhile ago. 

I'm just thinking outloud I suppose. ^^'

My first amiibo custom

He didn't turn out exactly how I planned. I guess you could say he's a 'training' craft. (That's a thing, right?) I'm probably not going to be selling this one either.

Waffley's sellin' stuff on the book of Faces!!

Currently, I am in the process of just figuring out which website is best to use as an online store for my crafts, my art prints and general things I no longer need. For the time being, I have decided to use Facebook. At least for the time being. So, if you like the kind of art I've been producing on this blog for almost a decade and would like to support me in my future projects, please feel free to take a gander here and see what might tickle your fancy.

Regarding "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

Fred Wolf's Ninja Turtles series lasted ten years and one-hundred and ninety-three episodes. 4Kids' Ninja Turtles lasted seven years, one-hundred and fifty-six episodes, a TV movie and countless shorts.

Neither one of these series had a colossal juggernaut like Nickelodeon backing them up.

Thoughts regarding the Beast Wars Netflix revival rumour

The initial article.

Beast Wars, or Beasties as it was curiously called in Canada, was the second-ever 3D animated series. Debuting alongside an incredible toyline, Beast Wars was three seasons long, and a sequel series, Beast Machines, and two Japanese-only spinoffs, Beast Wars the Second and Beast Wars NEO. The games...well, nevermind about the games...

Beast Wars was one of my favorite cartoons ever. I rank it up there with the Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters, I really mean it. Even today, the show holds up. Yes, it shows it's age, but the characters still appear in Transformers media to this day. So, you can imagine when the rumour about a Beast Wars Netflix revival popped up recently.

Well, this rumour got me excited. Very excited. Like, almost giddy. I like that. I like that things can still make me feel excited and giddy and something close to what you humans call "happy." Until I started to think about it a bit.

The article listed eleven characters as being apart of this new series, which I assume will be a reboot, if in fact it is true. Looking at this list makes me somewhat...wary; Optimus Primal, Megatron, Rattrap, Ravage, Scorponok, Cheetor, Blackarachnia, Terrorsaur, Inferno, Rhinox, and...Magmatron?

First off, why Ravage? Yes, the Ravage in Beast Wars was the same character as in G1, but he only showed up for three episodes. And he wasn't exactly the best designed character in the series either. (Tigatron's beast mode head's glued onto a recoloured Cheetor.) Why out of all the characters to show up on this list, why Magmatron? If you are unaware, Magmatron was the villain of the Japanese-only series NEO. Yes, Magmatron showed up in the IDW comic, alongside practically every other Beast Wars character imaginable, but not in the original cartoon. Although, I suppose, if the Nickelodeon TMNT cartoon can feature characters from all other TMNT continuities, so could this potential new Beast Wars series.

Lastly, why doesn't the list feature Dinobot? Or Waspinator? Or Silverbolt? I'm not talking about cannon fodder characters...okay Waspinator was literally cannon fodder, but you know what I mean? Why include characters like Ravage and not Dinobot or Silverbolt or Waspy? 

Regardless, if in fact Beast Wars is being prepped for a revival, I shall watch it with much anticipation. It's a series that I loved as a child and one I still love to this day.

My most desired Funko Pop toys

Funko Pop is slowly taking over the Earth.

Okay, maybe not. But they do have an incredible line-up of figurines. Literally everything from Star Wars to Star Trek, Marvel to DC, Disney to Warner, Ninja Turtles to Power Rangers, WWE to...Golden Girls?
