The Unofficial Fan Page is moving!
Written by Arus   
Tuesday, 19 July 2011

ImageTime to update your bookmarks! The Unofficial Voltron Force Homepage will be moving to a new domain, with all new content and updates. Arus.org was always a personal domain for me, and I started this site nearly 15 years ago, in an attempt to show my love and provide a resource for other fans to come to. It has been years since I've updated and I wanted to take this chance to start anew.

The new site will cover all the old and the new. Much of the content you see here will be on the new site as well, but I've taken the time to update the content on the new site.

For more information, please bookmark the new url:

http://www.voltron-force.com 

 

I'm looking to open the new site on August 1st. Till then please be sure to check out the official Voltron site at http://www.voltron.com

 

UPDATE: NEW OPENING DATE IS AUGUST 15, 2011

 

See you all in a few!

Wednesday, 19 November 2008

Image Watch this awesome painting done by Robert Burden! Its a 11 foot tall, nearly 7 foot wide, Oil on canvas painting. Robert is an amazing artist that lives in San Francisco, CA, and has based much of his work on the toys that he played with while growing up! Glad to see that Voltron was among the many toys that he remembers!

 

You can see some more of his awesome work at his website, Robert Burden's Toy Box

Hyaku Ju Oh Golion Volumes Available
Written by Arus   
Friday, 31 October 2008

Image Apologize for not updating this site as I should. Busy with work...having a life...jk. A lot of things happen, and priorites shift, but Im trying to return to updating the sites that I need to. 

So to start, Hyaku Ju Oh Golion DVD Volumes are now on sale. As you know, this is the original Japanese animated series that the Voltron: Lion Force was based on, and heavily edited from.

Product Description:

 From days of long ago... from uncharted regions of the universe... comes a legend... The legend of Golion, the original Japanese show that started it all in the world of Voltron. The five pilots may look the same, but their names and the events that occur are galaxies apart from the series you think you know. Were people evacuated safely? Do robots die? And what really happened to a certain main character?

Revisit the Voltron series as you've never experienced it before, and see what really happened in this newly restored and uncut version.

CHUD.comVoltron Screenplay Review
Written by Arus   
Friday, 31 August 2007

Image Chud.com has posted a review of the screenplay draft by Justin Marks , and the reviewer spares no expense at ripping it apart. He provides more details into the story thus far with the script and also agrees that is just the makeup of several other movies into this diatribe of boringness.

 

 

 

    Speaking of suicide, there is an oppressive emptiness to Marks's 5/23/07 draft of Voltron; though it cribs heavily from Star Wars, the creative desperation plunges the reader into a metaphorical River Ouse. "If this is the future of mainstream filmmaking," one drones above the pocket-muffled clatter of stones, "then let me be done with it."

    As mentioned above, Voltron takes place five years after the Earth has been ravaged by their Robeast overlords. Marks flatters himself by depicting his world as "a cross between Escape from New York and a Vonnegut apocalypse fantasy". He does not cite a particular Vonnegut tome because he clearly has not read one. Better, then, to rephrase his post-apocalyptic setting as "a cross between 1990: The Bronx Warriors and Tom Sizemore's bedroom"
.


     

If the excerpt above doesn't give you just the bad vibes about this film, then you'd hate to find out that, The DRULES are the robeasts responsible for attacking the Earth in a 1 day war; that Coran is Allura's father, and they're both over 12,000 years old, and Pidge is a kid who had to fend for himself, making him reminiscent of Molly Ringwald's character in Spacehunter : Adventures in the Forbidden Zone - remember that horrible film?

Okay, I really think its time, just to put the Voltron Live Action movie on the back burner, and let it stew for the next five years. Really, WE dont need a movie about Voltron on the big screen, if its not going to get the due justice it deserves. I rather save all this energy and money and get the series to be redone in animated form, than to waste time on a movie, that is just turning many fans stomachs sour.

Justin Marks, no offense, I know you claim to be a fan, but your "track" record is lacking. Yes you're young, yes you have stars in your eyes, but with your treatment of Voltron, Im not impressed. Get a few films under your belt, first, then come back to handling the "big" licenses so that you learn to respect the material from which you are trying to adapt it from. I think its time that you hand over the writing and take on a partner, so they can go over your work to make sure that you're not getting carried away with stealing the plot devices from 20 movies to make this one movie. Voltron can be ORIGINAL, if you just step back from what you "think" it should be like and realize "WHAT" it should be like.

For now, I wanted to give this a chance, but as more details are released, the more I really do not want to see this film. Its disheartening to see something, you grew up with be destroyed. As I always will state, a movie doesn't have to be made. I do dream of a good live action movie, but I want a movie that captures the magic that I felt when watching the show. And none of that is present in the current version of this screenplay.

 

Hope to keep up to date with any new movie information that is released.

 

 
Updates Coming Soon!
Written by Arus   
Saturday, 18 August 2007

Image Whew! I've been on a whirlwind of so many activities that I've barely had time to settle down and get down to updating this website! For that, Im sorry. But good news! I was able to attend San Diego ComiCon this year, and caught the Voice actors panel on both Saturday and Sunday. Featured were two cast members of Voltron, Neil Ross (Keith, Pidge, Jeff) and Michael Bell (Lance, Sven). Both were amazingly nice! I recorded both of the panels, and hope to have them posted once I find the cable to capture the footage to my computer.

Beyond that, real life has also kept me busy; my company's soccer team is in 4th place for our first season of play! We hope to do well in the play-offs! And I've been making some custom made items to sell. Im getting ready to get an Artist Table at Kawaii Kon 2008, so Im playing around with what items to sell. I have list ready; I just need to now sit down and make them.

 

Well, sit back and check back often! Updates are just around the corner. And remember September marks the 23rd year of Voltron!
