Had the Toys as a Kid and now Watching Show for First TIme
If anyone is listening...
I have been dredging the dark reaches of the web for War Planets info after I thought of them earlier this week. I had the Fire and Remora planets as a kid and LOVED them. Only one other kid I knew had the toys but he left school in 5th grade. I discovered the TV show upon some research today and was taken completely off guard. I had watched ReBoot as a kid a bit and played with the toys yet never heard of this. I am downloading the two seasons now and plan to watch em tonight. I will post impressions in the morning or maybe just live blog the series watch here. What the hell. Why not?
Hope somebody is out there...

Hey all, i hope ppl are still active here... anyways, I have found a very interesting video on youtube. Its the add tot he war planets toyline. The link is:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73k-3iWQGlk&feature=player_detailpage
I'll provide soem backstory. The makers of the original warplanets toyline(they were called trendmasters) were so impressed with "Mainframe Entertainment's" TV series based on the old transformers beast wars toyline (which i think were made by matell) that they got in contact to make a war planets TV series which is the one that we all know and love. In a way, that little TV commercial started it all.

Is anyone aware that September 16th, 2013 will be Shadow Raiders' fifteenth anniversary?
I really kinda want to gather people and do something, it would be a bit depressing if it came and went and no one said a peep about it. :/

"On the Rocks" liveblog finished... finally.
So, eight months later, I finally got around to liveblogging the second episode on the SR Tumblr rewatch blog I started. Link here!
I'm going to make a conscious effort to update more often from now on. But probably only an episode a week. It takes me a rather embarrassingly long time to take screen caps. :P Current Mood: accomplished

Age of Chaos gameplay on YouTube.
Something I stumbled across on YouTube that might be of interest to somebody. A while ago isocz_sector
posted videos and images from the Age of Chaos DOS game based on the original toyline.
Seems another YouTube user - Alshoff - has recently been posting actual gameplay videos. Check it out. Current Mood: curious

Well, having just finished a complete rewatch of the series about a week ago, I naturally started trawling the internet for War Planets/Shadow Raiders goodness, and was delighted to come across the LJ community. :)
I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to point me in the direction of their favorite WP/SR fics, as I am absolutely dying to read some upon finishing the series. I do write a little fic myself as well, so perhaps sometime I can turn the lens onto this show.
Actually, I enjoy all the Mainframe/Rainmaker shows from this era, including ReBoot (finally a full boxset, yay!) and Beast Wars. I find it interesting to note that Rainmaker's bread and butter these days seems to be producing the Barbie movies. While those are not bad per se, I would love to see them return to making fully realized shows like they used to back in the 90s. Well, I can dream anyway.
Sorry that got so long winded! Anyway, please to meet you all! Cheers!
Tumblr rewatch blog
Last night I got insomnia and promptly started picture blogging SR starting with the first episode.http://shadowraiderswatch.tumblr.com/
I fully intend to blog the whole series. But I'll probably just do two episodes a week for now. I take/edit all the caps I use from scratch so doing even just one episode takes a few hours....
If you have a Tumblr, feel free to follow. I apologize in advance for the rather large amounts of sarcasm...
On second thought, no. No, I don't. ;)

New to this group
Hey all, writing from Australia,
I decided to watch the whole epic series of shadow raiders the other day (I do this a few times a year), and got the war planets itch...so naturally when I had gotten through the series...I went over to the fanfics...wish there were more...I have a few favourites among the short list, but it was nice to see some new ones. Cheers to pixelframe, who told me about this group...it's very cool to find others who can't seem to get rid of the itch for this amazing story to continue, even if we have to write it ourselves...
If others are interested in reading some new fanfics, I'm happy to write some.... Current Mood: artistic

Let slip the dogs of war
Hey all, a bit overdue, but here's the next set of dialogs for your pondering enjoyment. Mid season 2. Just to make life easier, Pyrus didn't say any of these. Absent for 3 episodes in a row :(( Read more...Collapse )

It kinda makes me sad because I know it will all end in a handful of episodes *whimper*. This dialog set is from the start of the season including, imo, Cryos' best line and stuff from one of the funniest episodes.

I couldn't space the quotes properly as punishment for pasting from word -_-
