Starwars Solo movie released this week and it is good time to do review on this TakaraTomy Metacolle Starwars Carbonite Han Solo.
First I have to say this could be the best Carbonite Han Solo thus far. Why? Because this is really metal and it has the weight!
The toy comes with the Carbonite Han Solo and a 2 pieces stand which you can assemble very easily.
At the back of the Carbonite you can see there are 2 holes for the stand to fit in either vertically or horizontally.

At the side you can see the detail of the Operation Control Panel that you can control the carbonite condition.
Placing it horizontally was easy as the stand balance the weight of this diecast piece well.
All that is missing is to put some figure beside this to make it as a delivery mode. :P
The detail on the side give a good prospective of the carbonite Han Solo like never before. Hehehe
I have to say this is one of the best Carbonite Han Solo for collectors as it is metal and it comes with stand that is good looking for display.
Whether the new SOLO movie is good or bad, we all can agree the original trilogy have everything that make Starwars we loved. So let's just freeze that in time and let's see if the Solo movie have something iconic that fan will remember it for.
So for all who have not read about the news that release last week, there will another cartoon series of Thundercats and it will be named as "ThunderCats Roar".
When the trailer was announced, many of the old fans were not happy as the new Thundercats take on kiddy / cute form with comedy.
Personally I find the new drawing style is very much like "Steven Universe" style as most of the cartoon now were drawn in this way. I do wonder however, when the kids of this age grow up, will they still love these series?
I don't want to sound like a old man but here are some compilation of Thundercats of the 80s, 2011 and the coming Thundercats. Take a good look at the style of the characters.
In time like this, fans really need the eye of Thundera to have sight beyond sight to see how this Thundercats franchise would be in years to come.
Sadly such decision made by the TV studio who want to make appeal to the newer generation as the 2011 did not response well to the audience. Then to be fair, most children and teens would have much more other series offer on video on demand.
Just like many DC fans sound out they did not like Teen Titans Go style but yet they are having a movie in a few month time. I guess they do have some following.
PS: Teen Titan Go producer are in ThunderCats Roar as well.
Sadly I have seen way too many 80s cartoon reboot and some for a few times with different style! Sooner or later, it will wear off the franchise of it novelty. End of the day, old fans have not much say as the one paying are the studio. Whatever it is, just have to take a step back and see how the kids response to this new series then. Till then Thundercats....HO!!!!
