Jem and the Holograms, Micronauts return for Hasbro

Rumors have been swirling for the past couple days, but Hasbro held its 2009 Fall Investor Event last week showing they were committed to television content, toylines and movies for both Jem & The Holograms and Micronauts. As soon as that announcement was made, it appears that JJ Abrams made a bid for the Micronauts movie. Rumor has it that Micronauts’ appearance in Mattel’s fan poll on licenses they should acquire prompted Hasbro to act quickly to keep Mattel away from Takara and the series from which Transformers originated.

Poweteer Tekwych linked us to this informative blog post made by a Micronauts fan featuring some background and a little speculation.

You can join in our active discussion of the announcements here.

My sister was a big Jem and the Holograms fan, so I saw my fair share of the Holograms and Misfits. I’m happy to see them make a comeback. What do you Poweteers think? Will you watch new Jem and Micronauts media? Buy the toy lines? Let us know below in the comments!

L is for Lost

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

In the fall of 2004, amidst a general lackluster lineup of programming on TV, my brothers pulled me aside to watch this new show everyone had been buzzing about. After watching just the first episode, I knew there was something great about this show with a simple concept about a plane crashing on a deserted island, but that obviously was up to much more. For me right off the bat the show keyed into something I’ve always been into, which is a kind of survival show idea, but then as it goes on the show kept me hooked with great drama, intriguing mysteries and original ways of tackling sci-fi and fantasy elements.

Powetcast Episode 10: War of the Prequels

powetcast We’re facing a prequel-heavy year in entertainment: Star Trek, Wolverine, Terminator: Salvation, the upcoming Caprica (based on the new Battlestar Galactica), and shows that involve so much time travel it’s hard to say which is the beginning or end. Some of those shows won’t even be coming back next year, thanks to a slew of announced cancellations.

Rock it out with us in the Powetcast for the week of May 18th, 2009!

Star Trek Trailer

The trailer showed up over the weekend in front of the latest 007 film, but those that want to see it again or missed it in theaters can watch it on Apple’s movie trailer site

Doesn’t look like any of the usual video sites are hosting a good quality embedded version, but the link above will get you HD versions of the trailer.

Now I love Star Trek — LOVE IT. But this trailer does something Star Trek has never done, which is look exciting. I’ve always cared about the drama and suspense of Star Trek, but the action has always been lacking, its best moments carried out by older captains and slow space fights. This new Star Trek is going for Star WARS fans, and that cool. As long as they stay true to those characters and this universe, it’ll be a thing worth celebrating for Star Trek fans. Engage.
