Voltron Force: Dradin, Baby, Dradin Review

Dradin, Baby, Dradin

Remember last week how we said 5 was a magic number for Voltron? This week, the 5 “C”‘s play a big part in the episode, “Dradin, Baby, Dradin”. The 5 “C”‘s are Color, Cameo, Campy, Conflict and Convention. “Dradin, Baby, Dradin” had to be the most Colorful episode of all the Voltron Force episodes. Just like the Casinos in Las Vegas, the endless array of lights and color that are on display in Manset’s LeisureDrome Resort on Dradin are truly a spectacle for the eyes. Once I was able to see it on iTunes in Full HD, I was blown away by the amount of color that saturated this episode. There was one explosion of a tank that was particularly well done to the point that it looked almost real.

Harry Debuts on ToonBarn reviewing Voltron Force: Gary

ToonBarn Harry

Here at ToonBarn, we hope you are delighted to meet our newest sensation, a cartoon character named Harry. Harry will be popping in from time to time to talk about stories relating to cartoons and animation, or he may review an episode of a TV show, or a full-length animated feature film. Harry won’t take the place of the text that comes with a story. That will always be there. More so, he will be an additional way to view and hear about these stories that ToonBarn provides. In this first video, Harry will introduce himself, and then take you on a ride through the latest Voltron Force episode, “Gary”. Below the video, you will see that we have included the review of the episode, complete with screenshots, in case you would like to read about it. So, buckle up. Here we go!

Voltron Force: Brains Review

King Lotor in Samurai Armor on Balto

If the Zombie Apocalypse is going to occur in our lifetimes, it may as well be started with a Haggarium infestation in the most technological area of the Galaxy. Planet Balto is the focus of this Voltron Force episode (Voltron Force: Episode 16: Brains). Balto is Pidge’s home Planet, and his brother Chip still lives there. So do a ton of other Ninja Scientists. That’s right. They’re Scientists, who also happen to be Ninjas. And, in case you were thinking that’s as weird as it gets, hold on to your… brains.

Voltron Force: Rogue Trip Review

Voltron Force: Rogue Trip Review

The name, Dudley, and his grating, retainer-lisped voice, will forever be emblazened in our minds. It’s not that there is anything wrong with that name, per se, but there hasn’t been too many Dudley cartoon characters that have ever been really cool. For instance, there was Dudley Do-Right, a bumbling, clumsy, Canadian Mountie, who always meant well, but never really seemed to be the confident hero. He didn’t exactly start a craze for new parents to put that name at the top of the baby name list. Neither will this Dudley. In the latest Voltron Force episode, (Voltron Force: Episode 15: Rogue Trip), Dudley is an ultra-obsessed fan of the Classic Voltron, who meets the Cadets, and wants to show them why he is Voltron’s biggest fan. Only, his intentions get lost in the translation, as he ends up biting off more than he can chew.

Voltron Force: Inside the Music Review

Peace does not last

It feels so good to kick off the dust that accumulated for several weeks, while the memory of the first 13 episodes of Voltron Force were fresh in our minds, and anticipation built for another round of 13 new episodes. Hopefully, you were able to catch the stories surrounding New York ComicCon, where the Producers of Voltron were on hand to talk to the fans about the new episodes yet to come. And, maybe you had the pleasure to read ToonBarn’s own Exclusive Interview with the Producers of Voltron, Bob Koplar and Jeremy Corray. In that article, you would have learned about some of the great episodes we are going to see in the next few weeks.

Voltron Force Producers Bob Koplar and Jeremy Corray Interview

Voltron Double Blade

Coming this Thursday, November 3, at 8:30 PM, only on Nicktoons (anybody else have it memorized?), you can see an all new episode of Voltron Force (Episode 14: Form Green Center). In honor of this new block of episodes, as a special treat to visitors of ToonBarn, we were extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to speak with Bob Koplar and Jeremy Corray, who are responsible for producing every episode of Voltron Force for World Events Productions.

Voltron Force: Clash of the Lions Review

Clash of the Lions

If you recall from last week, Lance and Keith said Sky Marshall Wade crossed the line. We all know how Keith and Lance feel about Princess Allura. They will protect her at all cost. And by setting a trap for Allura in last week’s episode, the guys want nothing more than to get revenge on Wade. In this week’s episode, Voltron Force: Episode 13: Clash of the Lions, Sky Marshall Wade knows that “the knights in shining armor” will seek revenge by coming after him where he lives. He is ready for them.

Nickelodeon and Nicktoons Voltron Force: Hungry for Voltron Review

Wade lets loose his legions on Allura

This week’s episode, Voltron Force: Episode 12: Hungry for Voltron, showed the more diplomatic side of what it means to be a member of the Voltron Force. Larmina gets to learn how to respect other cultures and how to behave like a true ambassador of Voltron and her home planet of Arus. In order for this “lesson” to occur though, Princess Allura had to accept an invitation to the Planet Ebb, knowing that it could be a trap. Lance and Keith both saw it as a trap, but Allura was steadfast in her resolve. If there was any question about it before, in this episode, we found out who truly has the last word on the Voltron Force.

Nickelodeon’s Voltron Force: Hunkyard Review

Nickelodeon's Voltron Force: Hunkyard Review

Did you ever think, there’s just not enough Hunk in your life? Well, this episode (Voltron Force: Episode 6: Hunkyard) satisfies your Hunk craving. From the old Voltron series of the 80’s to today’s Voltron Force, it seems as though Hunk never got a whole lot of attention. That’s all changed. After this episode, it appears as though Hunk may be the one member of the original 5 that the Cadets trust the most. How does he achieve this status? By taking the cadets to the Hunkyard; a region of Planet Arus where scrap machines go to die.

Voltron Force: Joyride of Doom Interactive Review

Voltron Force: Joyride of Doom Interactive Review

The Producers of Voltron Force promised us that Joyride of Doom would be a game-changer in the Voltron Force Series. They weren’t kidding! If you were thinking this is your old Voltron, and/or just rehashed as Voltron Force, you were sadly mistaken about a great many things. Back in 1984, were you able to simultaneously watch Voltron and send tweets back and forth with the Producers of the show, getting instant information about what you were watching? No! Back in 1984, could you have had complete access to the same episode you watched, less than 12 hours later, either on the web or downloaded to iTunes? No! Back in 1984, could you spend the whole week in between episodes debating with people all over the world about whether King Lotor will ever get over his obsession with Allura, because you are connecting with people through Facebook, Twitter, a thousand blog sites, and most importantly, ToonBarn? No! This whole interactive experience is a game-changer, not to mention the Toys, Video Games, Conventions, and other good stuff that is coming with this franchise. DON’T CALL IT A TV SHOW! It’s much more than that. Take a look here at reasons why
