Animation Magazine Pictures
Thanks to Mario R. a.k.a. GRIMLOCK, I have these scans of some of the images
from the cartoon, as they appeared in Animation Magazine. For now,
that'll be it for the page, because I'd rather not review the cartoon myself
(I review too many things already, I need to have some entertainment forms I
simply sit back and enjoy). I may bring in a guest reviewer if someone posts
good reviews to Usenet and needs a web home for them.

L.H. Wells, who runs a Jim Byrnes fan page,
provided me with some information on Byrnes as relates to his voice work as
both the Vizier of Planet Fire and as the Predacon Inferno. Click here for her letter to me. Watch her page for the opening of
a separate section for War Planets.
- Cover Image - Graveheart leading a charge of
the very heavy brigade. This is a better quality version of the picture I
had up earlier from the Canadian TV Guide.
- Page 1 of the article - Rock warriors run
through the background of this page.
- Graveheart Closeup - A tight shot of
Graveheart's rocky face. The lipsynch on the show is very good, and the
article mentions a new software package called GRIN that helped with this (I
reduced the image size and cropped out the words).
- Jade and Prince Pyrus - Jade is Graveheart's ex,
apparently. Judging from the conversation they had in the second half of the
season opener, I'd guess they were lovers until his leaving the military
drove a wedge between them. Prince Pyrus is the leader of Planet Fire,
although he's underage (and apparently meant to be a companion for King
Kryos's daughter) and mostly controlled by his Vizier.
- Jade alone - A full body shot of Jade carrying
one of the sonic cannons that proved so useful against the Beast Drones.
- Princess Tekla of Tek - I'm not sure on the name,
I should rewatch the ep. She's the last survivor of Planet Tek, which is
devoured Lithone-like in the first minutes of the opening episode. Her
arrival in the middle of a Rock/Ice battle, followed by Beast forces,
catalyzed things. In this shot, she's hugging her doomed father goodbye, a
tear running down her face.
- Tek Fighters - The extremely doomed doublejet
craft of Planet Tek. They didn't split apart like the toys, tho.
- Femur - Ruler of Planet Bone, a slimy political
hack, self-aggrandizing and lecherous. The kind of guy who's good at getting
into power, but not good at using the power well.
- Darklord Blokk - This is the Ahnuld-like leader
of the Beast Drone forces, one of three Darklords. All three Darklords
(Lamprey and Voyd are the other two), and most Beast tech for that matter,
are formed from "null matter" held in shape by a glowing forcefield. Much
nastier looking than the toys.
