    Hasbro Micronauts cartoon coming 2019

    Goes into production 2018 for a 2019 release.

    Scroll down. It's 19 on the list. Concept art plus a brief description of the show.

    "When fate brings an unlikely team of alien space explorers to earth in pursuit of the evil Baron Karza, they make a shocking discovery—on our world they are the size of action figures! The Micronauts are small heroes in a big world but the stakes are higher than ever as their miniaturized size presents dangerous obstacles at every turn. Fortunately, they forge an alliance with teenager Cameron Ruck, who will join them in their pursuit of justice. Although the Micronauts are small in stature, their bravery and adventurous spirits remain larger than life."

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Looks interesting sort of. The age group it's targeted for is 6-11 and the concept art looks like a radical redesign of the characters, so I am guessing any toy line that comes out to support this series will look nothing like classic Micronauts toys. This will be the third try at using the Micronauts come to earth and hook up with a young person as a guide-the original Micronauts series from Marvel used that element, the Image/DDP/novels relaunch in 2002 used that element, and here again, but I have always found the stories to be more interesting when they focused on what was going on in the Micronauts native realm rahter than the "gee they're tiny on Earth" type stories. But we'll see. I'll likely check it out at least if it comes to fruition.

    The four armed alien looks cool. I dont know. I hope they succeed but the property has been through a few reboots and I dont think any of them warrant a new toyline or animated show.

    the four armed alien looks like a cross between Membros (the head shape) and the four-armed character from the Image series seen on this cover...




    as for the concept art, I think I prefer the Dave Johnson character designs for the naimated series that never got off the ground about 15 years ago...





    but again, I'm taking a wait and see approach on this one.

    I'm not sure why they dont try and tie it in directly with the Transformers and even introduce them as something related to their planet and race. At least that might capture some of the same audience. That four armed alien in the preview looked like he might have a glowing brain as well (fingers crossed). I like those Dave Johnson designs better than the current IDW designs as well.

    I'd love to see the Marvel comics come to life but I have a weird feeling Hasbro's main demographic won't be guys in their mid 40s who won't buy any merch.

    The Micronauts were the coolest toys before Transformers came out. I’m actually really surprised that no one has attempted to bring the Micronauts to the big screen. I used to watchcartoonsonline but since there are a few restrictions i moved to CartoonsOn as an alternative of watchcartoonsonline CartoonsOn streamlined and straightforward interface and high-quality content make this website kind of a top choice for cartoon lovers now.
