    I really, truly love the weekly questions.

    glad to hear

    Also it’s Question time

    with Glampire being the main Big Bad and the ruler of most of the Wasteland, he must have a base of operations. My question is what hurdles are stoping the Lightning Dogs from going to his home and reach out and touch Glampire with a high powered rifle at his own base at a safe distance?

    The reason I ask is because the new Voltron has one of the best reasons why the heroes can’t just take Voltron and punch Emperor Zarkon face in with a giant loin head shape fist and I want to know what defenses Glampire has against the Dogs

    Well, I haven’t caught up to that point in Voltron yet, but Glampire’s defenses are severe. His fortress is surrounded by a domain, much like the castle at the center of the Labyrinth (but not mazes and booby traps, more like urban wasteland and settlements/encampments filled with Glampire loyalists.) Plus once you’re in the fortress there’s all kinds of dangers. He’s got them outmanned and outgunned (the LDs have better tech, but not enough to blast through the entire domain) plus the LDs are for a long time really out of their depth. Within the span of what would be the introductory “movie” a la Voltron, Gargoyles, etc. the LDs will have already been invited deep into Glampire’s territory and know *exactly* how boarderline impossible it is to make a hit against him. There’s no safe distance really, and even with some intense snipering, Glampire won’t go down in one hit.

    that is very well thought out
    also glad to hear that Glampire isn’t going to go down with out a fight.

    and with that said I now wonder how far the robot assassins have gotten

    So, I’ve gone a little ways back in the thread and I don’t think this has been asked yet.

    As someone who has a Cobra ballcap and the Decepticon emblem on his car, does Glampire or any of the other factions have recognizable faction emblems or symbols?

    @wrldqueek I asked that when they posted the new Lightning Dogs logo

    Doug reply with this back in February
    “We’ve discussed it briefly before, but don’t have any solid designs yet. Jack will obviously have some kind of Halloween theme. We wanted to nail down the main logo first before we tackled anything else.”

    question time

    will the ninja cats from Japan be made up of just domestic cat breeds or will there be some wild breeds mixed in like Ocelots, Lynxs, and Leopards?

    Damn it this idea just popped in my head of a panther in Shredder like armor with the personality of Idris Elba’s Shere Khan(which if you haven’t seen the new jungle book, he comes off as a roaming lord who came to power through violence and fear and can snap and kill someone without warning.)

    Thanks for fielding that emblem question, Big Bad! No change in that yet, btw.

    The cats have yet to really be developed since we see them being several seasons down the line. Thus so far everything we’ve discussed has been domestic breeds. There isn’t exactly a logic in conceiving this but there might actually be something to it. Domestic cats don’t have the same variety as dogs (though admittedly they’ve undergone MUCH less selective breeding at the hands of humans), but they do share a similar ability to adapt and create variety. Whereas big cats don’t really. The Liger and Tigon for example are like a mule in that they can’t reproduce. Too much genetic difference perhaps? I’ve never really dipped my toe into this section of biology, I don’t rightly know. Smaller cats like the ocelot, lynx, serval, and jaguarundi might be able to spice things up, but I don’t know for sure. …Long story short, I don’t know that we’ll see any panthers, tigers, or lions, etc. if for any reason just that we want to create a parallel between the LDs and the cats of Earth. But then again, it’s Lightning Dogs so anything is possible.

    I would wonder if Big Cats aren’t too similar to Thundercats anyway, particularly the aforementioned Panther(o)

    good point I forgot about that
    the reason I said Panther was because I just found out that Panthers are very wierd subspecie

    I’ve been wondering this for awhile now, but what exactly are the Lightning Dogs’ short term goals with fighting Glampire? Long term seems like it’s to stop him from returning home/expanding his empire into the galaxy, but short term their goals seem less clear. Are they focusing on some semblance of the original mission, trying to determine if this truly is Earth and what happened to make things this way? Are they trying to find a way to contact their home planet, either to warn them away or call for reinforcements? (that one seems unlikely as it defeats the purpose of them blowing up their ship to prevent the technology from falling into Glampire’s hands) Are they going around liberating villages and building up an army to mount a resistance against him? (Again, unlikely, because most of the native population in their area seems to be Jack’s underlings who wouldn’t make the best allies, and making it clear they intend to overthrow Glampire would probably just barely upgrade their threat level enough that he’d use a real show of force to put them in their place and not just constantly let minions handle it for him.) Maybe it’s just because I’m barely too young to remember what the Thundercats did week to week besides fight Mum-ra’s latest plan, but it seems like as things are the LD are only reacting to their surroundings, without any goals they’re working towards of their own.

    Great question, @delphi!

    Within their first encounter they’re made plainly aware that Glampire is super evil and no matter what they can’t let him get to their homeworld – hence them blowing up the Farfetch. Once they’ve stranded themselves it becomes about survival. The first season sees them tapping into the strangers in a strange land kind of storyline, with them coping with limited resources and trying to figure out how to get back home – or even send a message. During this time they’ll learn that on Earth there’s things worth fighting for, and in the course of defending themselves from Glampire’s minions, they’ll find their actions have a positive effect on the world and the people of the Wasteland. Answers about the fate of humanity string along other interests, while the goal of getting home remains paramount.

    The Thundercats were stranded from day 1, so they were basically castaways trying to make a life for themselves in a strange land. They were usually doing things like finding thundrilium to power the Cats’ Lair, exploring, or stumbling across people who needed their help against Mumm-ra and/or the Mutants. Wily Kit and Wily Cat were often getting themselves into trouble. I don’t recall why the Mutants allied themselves with Mumm-ra offhand though; they were enemies of the Thundercats from the planet Plun-dar prior to either race landing on Third Earth, and Mumm-Ra was already there hibernating. The TCs crash land, and the mutants followed them there, presumably in a ship that could have left at any time? Season 1 is on Netflix Instant, but I didn’t make it out of the first episode the other day.

    Question time

    why is their Dingos on the Dog’s homeworld? Did some human really bring wild dogs to a new planet or is the Dingos on the dog’s homeworld just dogs that got loose and became wild before humanity left the dog”s homeworld and are call Dingos as a namesake?
