Whatever the end product, those are some good looking pics.

I had never seen the original.  Just watched it the other day.  Very impressive visuals for something that was made before I was born.  But I have to say I'm a little disappointed in all the mediocre CGI here.  I mean I expected some, sure, but not that much.  Hopefully it's not as pronounced in the actual product.

Granted I guess I'm a little more lenient since it's a miniseries and not a movie.

On second viewing there's actually not nearly as much CGI as was my first impression.  I'm back to looking forward to it.

I was very hesitant during the first few seconds of the teaser since they're all CGI. Quite beautiful on my big screen too. They all seemed like establishing shots though. I withheld any judgment until I could see some actual puppetry. I'm very happy with what I see here. I was expecting a lot worse, like CGI blended puppetry or something. Glad they're sticking to practical with all the main characters. I actually expected it to be a much lower production budget, but they're spending real money on this. I hope it succeeds, because it looks fantastic. Like it's being done by real fans of the original. I recognized so many of the creatures; it was really great to see them all.

The only negative thing I have to say (other than my cautiousness about the CGI) is that the title is weak and the fact that it's a prequel.

That Skeksis "hmmm" at the end cracked me up. lol

I'll have to check that out when I'm not at work. I only know Luke Ski because he's sometimes in Tony Goldmark (Some Jerk With A Camera) videos.

Considering this is based on the upcoming miniseries, I've decided to put this here...

That looks... terrible. Like, really bad. Just a boring slog with art that is just as boring. And I’m a fan of slow paced final fantasy tactics games. But perhaps I’m being mostly turned off by hearing those horrible people reading that grating canned press banter.

So it's not just me.

Quite frankly, this looks bad.

Looks Funko is making them in ReAction form if you're not a fan of Pops.

I am not a fan of Pops and refuse to buy any no matter how cheap or catered to my taste. This, on the other hand, is waaay more my style. Crazy how much they look like something out of the world of Teddy Ruxbin.
