I figured this sub was a good place to start since Tigersharks is the forgotten little brother of the Thundercats and Silverhawks series. Hopefully it doesnt get taken down. I have been working on restoring the audio and video of the existing episodes. The couple released on VHS are not bad, but the others are not great. Most of the episodes seem to be lost at the moment, but there are about 8 episodes that exist, just dubbed in a foreign languages. I found someone who translated the episode that was dubbed in Greek for me. While subtitles are better than nothing, with the advances in AI i wanted to take it a little further and Re-Dub them back to English. I used an AI program that worked remarkably well and took out the vocals, leaving the background sound effects intact. Then used AI voices to record the English Translation vocals and place it over the background track. it will take some time but the small snippet i have so far exceeded my expectations. I am doing the Greek one on my own kind of just to see if it can be done and watchable. The remaining 7 lost episodes are all Spanish dubbed. I was going to setup a Patreon to see if there was enough interest to translate those. the going rate seems to be about $300 for that length (seven ~11 min episodes). Or if there is a Spanish speaking fan that is willing to translate it, even better. If there is enough interest I can also use the higher end AI that matches voices. Since all the voice actors for this series also voiced main characters on Thundercats and Silverhawks, there is plenty of audio samples available to get a good match. Im hoping there is either 30 or so fans like me who loved this lost treasure growing up and wouldnt mind crowdfunding this project, or one dedicated Spanish speaking fan.
Is there any place that has videos? I have them all on DVD, but some of my pals want to watch them.
Hi Has anyone got the electrocharger of Mandora by Super7? I got mine and it seems I can’t fit the antenna on the back side of the vehicle. Anyone has tried it? Seems. Like the hole is not big enough.https://imgur.com/a/rfSmFTo/
I’m kind of new to this franchise, but I’m just curious, what makes this franchise unique or cool or interesting. Let me know in the comments
Im only now seeing the remake (still on ep 6, no spoilers please), and Im surprised of how good it is so far.
(dont even know if people liked it, or hated it)
About the comparisons:
I watched season 1 of Castlevania and Dota2, and was mega disappointed by those 2, the story is always stalling, the action is boring and overly quick (we can see they dont have the budget to animate high quality action/fight), characters are bland and passive, and we can feel so deeply that no one is ever in danger, nor there are any stakes.
Basically the writing is not good at all.
Then there is the He-man remake, that is well written but... its not at all about he-man, he is just a macguffin for the story, a secondary character that only appears in the cliff-hangers and still not the hero. They basically made other characters the main heroes, in a show called He-man... fuck sake.
And now, Thundercats, looking amazing so far, good world building, and good re-imagining of the characters we knew in the 80s, loving the art style, and the redesign of the suits.
Yet they didnt renew the show for a second season... damn :(
