Not the end I'd wish for, lad... by Trey-Vore
Not the end I'd wish for, lad...
If you don't know by now, the new Hasbro toy-based movie, Jem and the Holograms, had made box-office history, just not the type you would hope. 

Jem and the Holograms was about a girl's toy with a rock star theme.  Though Jem's toy could not compete with Barbie, her show, which had rock music in mind but combined it with adventure and science-fiction, made for a memorable 80s cartoon.  It was conceived by Christy Marx, who worked on G.I. Joe before Jem.

The problem they had was, while G.I. Joe, Transformers and even My Little Pony would stay in the public's mind though numerous reinventions, Jem and the Holograms was about a toy that had been inactive since 1988.  A lot of things changed during Jem's disappearance from the public's minds, so clearly some updating, and a lot of explanations, had to be done.  I was happy to hear Jem was returning after so long (even to the point of having Jem act in the 2014 Happy Honda-Days commercials with Skeletor, Stretch Armstrong and Srawberry Shortcake), but the resulting movie was... eh.  I practically forgot everything about it after I left, despite some hinting that they were building to something.  In an attempt to make Jem identifiable, they made a nobody-to-superstar story through social media and YouTube. 

But without any of the adventure and sci-fi that made the show fun, it almost felt like they were trying to remake the 2001 movie Josie and the Pussycats

I am aware that while movies based on boy-targeted toys/shows seemed to gone through a lot of changes because obviously technology had evolved since then, they at least kept what we wanted to see intact; after all Transformers was still about Autobots vs. Decepticons, G.I. Joe was still Joes vs. Cobras and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was still Turtles vs. the Foot Clan.  But when they adapt a girl-targeted toy/cartoon?  It's a total bastardization; even Christy Marx, who blessed them with the rights, wound up hating it.  The older fans will see nothing they remember, while kids now will probably be wondering why a music band would need a robot.

Not exactly a 30th anniversary tribute I that I would have been wishing to do, but the movie was pulled from theaters after only two weeks after putting up dismal numbers and failing to make back it's $5 million budget.  It kinda seems doing anything else now would be pointless as well... it seems Jem and the Holograms has flatlined. 

For this, I did this pic which I was discussing with my friend :iconmasterghostunlimited:, I have at least one character from other Hasbro series here to pay respects--Duke and Optimus Prime as they would remember Jem making her debut, and Twilight Sparkle and Blythe Baxter as they would be hoping to start working with Jem but clearly won't (I remember once asking back in 2009, how all those Recording Arts students would have felt once they heard Michael Jackson died).

Goin trick or treating
Since Roxy was so nice she let the Weiss Kittens handle an 80s property (…), she decided to go Trick or Treating as the ever-so-beautiful Krystal!

To make sure everything will go fine, her friends Sanka, Orville and Tammy agree to be her bodyguards.  They are 3 of the 4 New Challengers from Super Street Fighter 2, namely Cammy, T. Hawk and Dee Jay.

Happy Halloween everyone!

As a promotional image for Halloween, I decided to do a little pic of my Weiss Kittens trick or treating.

If you don't know, I decided to have them go as something reminiscent of one of my Halloweens: they are the Ninja Turtles!

See we have Scott as Leonardo, William as Raphael, Milton as Donatello, Keith as Michelangelo, Nicole as April O'Neil and Kim as the Shredder.

Happy Halloween everyone!

If you guys don't know about my book, The Weiss Kittens and the Family Tree (…), I have been buying my own book and selling it to my colleagues to hopefully get it out. 

Anyway the purpose of this journal is to let you all know I have a sequel coming which is undergoing copyright right now and I should hear back by late March or April.  Before Christmas I had shown my pics to a couple who was interested in one page and now I have the idea that I can scan my favorite images and sell the individual pictures for money.  Said page is the pic introducing the Weiss Kittens' upcoming villain!

Prices will be coming soon.
