Vimeo user Grimbot has taken the 200x Masters of the Universe pilot, and mashed it with the 80's cartoon sound effects. The results are suprisingly awesome! Take a watch, and visit the man's channel HERE
In a vein similiar to the Mortal Kombat: Legacy webseries from a few years back, Director Joseph Kahn and Producer Adi Shankar (Dredd) have recreated and reimagined the Power Rangers franchise into something a bit darker......
The era of the geek may be arising, but that doesn’t stop us from remaining the butt of the joke most of the time. Most of the humor from show like The Big Bang Theory stem from mocking the neuroses and inadequacies of the geeky main cast. While many fans of the series feel that this enables them to laugh at themselves a little, others fail to see much a difference between shows like The Big Bang Theory and common schoolyard bullying. Similar criticisms were at the core of campaigns against shows like Heroes of Cosplay as well.
That’s where The Great Fandelirium comes in. With the hopes of bringing audiences a fan-centric show that respects geek and nerd culture without making them look like unacceptable weirdos, host Anthony Brownrigg visits and highlights conventions of varying fandoms. Brownrigg wants to unveil what makes fandom work, how does it drive the market of the mundane world, and just how many people really are mundane? And how many simply hide it? “If anyone’s going to look like a fool in this, it’s gonna be me,” said Brownrigg, “because I just still don’t get all this stuff. But hopefully by the time I’m through living it, I’ll understand why millions of fans can’t be wrong”
The show is expected to debut either online or on a network in the coming spring and feature interviews with celebrity convention guests like Jim O’Rear (Hospital, Don’t Look in the Basement 2), Theodus Crane (The Walking Dead), Richard Hatch (BattleStar Galactica), Gigi Edgley (Farscape, Jim Henson’s Creature Challenge) and Vic Mignogna (Star Trek Continues, Full Metal Alchemist). However, they are still looking for feedback from the fandom community on what they would like to see featured on the show. Feedback can be submitted via their Facebook page.
What do you think? Is television failing to give fandom the respect it deserves? Keep an eye out for The Great Fandelirium!

Unfortunately, this comes from the Mirror.
But its a interesting look at the child actors of British UK Children's programs are up to these days, and reminder of who we used to watch.
The characers shown, whilst obviously the Machine Robo versions, seem to be based on chactaers that straddled the two series. Seen so far are:
The scale of these guys is looking like the current Hasbro Deluxe.
So. Excited? Can those Powerful Living Rocks be far behind? Keep an ear open for Welcome To Kimia's next episode to hear more about this as it develops!
