Form Feet And Legs!

When I was growing up I was a huge Voltron fan. More than any other cartoon, I was obsessed with Voltron. I'd leave outside playtime to come in and watch the new episode. So today's news made me squeal like a little girl.
WEP, a top animated television production company, and its representative, Classic Media – a global media company with a portfolio of some of the world's leading entertainment brands – will work with THQ to produce video games based on the Voltron franchise.

The video games from THQ, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software, will join a previously announced toy line produced under a separate agreement between WEP and Mattel, which plans to release toy lines based on classic Voltron in 2011 and new Voltron Force in 2012.

The Voltron video games from THQ are anticipated to debut this fall, following the premiere of the all-new 2D/CGI animated Voltron Force series, which is set to launch in the U.S. on Nicktoons, and with other key broadcasters worldwide, in 2011.
Video games and a new TV series?! I'm so in for this. There had been rumors floating around for quite a while that Voltron was going to come to the big screen. But the rumors I'd read about the script being shopped around didn't make me terribly happy as they were going to bring Voltron to Earth and it was going to be all current day and stuff like the Michael Bay Transformers films. This sounds more like classic Voltron.

All my Voltron fans - represent! Who else got a little giddy about this news?
