The commercial says it all
80s toon classic Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors was released on DVD in 2008 in a box set containing the first 33 episodes of the classic series, courtesy of Shout! Factory.
It sadly remained at those 33 episodes and a 2nd volume with the last episodes was never released.
On February 21st Mill Creek will be re-releasing Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors with 2 releases. The first one is a box that will contain (again) the first 32 episodes, the second release is a “Best of” with 10 episodes. The price is more than reasonable: $ 12,98 for the box set and $ 9,98. This sadly also reflects in the packaging, by re-using the horrible artwork that’s been used on previous releases.
No word when and if the remaining episodes will also be released on DVD.

The idea is quite simple: send a sketchbook around the globe so that different (high profile) artists can make a sketch in it. You often see this at comic conventions as well where fans bring their sketch books and ask artists to put a sketch in it.
The name list is quite impressive with the likes of Glen Keane, Bill Plympton, Hayao Miyazaki and 67 more artists.
Amazon FR has a copy of the book listed. I hope it’ll also be available on other Amazon sites as well. Below is a short cartoon explaining the concept.
The Transformers have had various incarnations including several animated series after the original series from the 80s ended. Most of these spin offs suck, but Beast Wars is one of the few that is actually good.
I’m still not a big fan of the CG animation in Beast Wars, but in terms of Transformers designs and story it’s good.
Coming November 1st a complete box will be released via general retailers. Earlier it was only available via Shout! Factory’s site.

Computers have made our lives so much easier and complex at the same time. One of the industries the computer’s had a big impact in film making.
Practically everything is possible to visualize nowadays with the help from a computer that we often forget how people in the past used to make movies and how complex it sometimes was without the use of a computer.
Cartoonbrew has posted a very good article how the Fleischer studios made a 3D feel possible in their cartoon without the use of a computer 70 years ago.
Art in its finest form.
The finished piece:
Any spin off or reboot attempt for the classic Looney Tunes is looked at with great skepticism.
When WB announced that a new show starring Bugs Bunny and Daffy was in the works I was very skeptic.
Now the first few video clips have been released and after seeing these all I can say is: WTF?
The design looks ok, but the animation looks like it pre-dates even the original Looney Tunes which is already 60 years old!And what’s up with the dialogue? It looks like two boring old farts talking! Where is the humor and craziness?
Sure, the clips are short and not an entire episode, but this doesn’t look promising.
Who needs dedicated animation software when you can also use Google Docs
Three guys managed to do exactly that.
