G.I. Joe, Transformers... these days it seems that Hollywood is always clamoring to take advantage of aging nerds by offering us souped-up versions of our favorite toys on the big screen.  It doesn't matter if they're any good (so far, not so good), they'll always be successful because suckers like us will line up to see 'em.  Not only do they make a lot of money, but they prove that you actually can shine a turd.  We put our heads together to come up with a list of our own turds that we'd like to see grace the silver screen.

10. JEM

9. Volton


8. Turbo Teen


7. M.A.S.K.


6. Strawberry Shortcake


5. Snorks


4. Snorks


3.  C.O.P.S.


2. Care Bears


1. Thundarr the Barbarian

I think He-Man may have the only chance of succeeding as a new movie based on action figures right now. M.A.S.K. and Voltron would probably be a lot like Transformers, but then I liked M.A.S.K. and it might make a cool movie if they actually decided to make one. I think C.O.P.S. could make a cool movie too. That was a good series.

I think I'd like to bang Strawberry Shortcake, and yes I'd be first in line for Thundarr the Barbarian. I'd drag my nieces and nephew with me kicking and screaming. Demon Dogs!

i like that Turbo Teen poster myself. Careful, they just might actually make that. Or ANY of these for that matter!!

Nice...I think if Hollywood is intent on making movies based on old cartoons though, why not try some of the ones that only myself and 3 others remember?  Not only could you do as much reinventing as is needed, but the less people know about it, the less people would bitch about it.  Anybody besides me remember "Blackstar"?  How about "Visionaries"?  "Visionaries" had a really cool premise...in the future, technology simply stops working because another age of magic has come about, and a wizard bestows powers to good and evil knights.  The guy who voiced Starscream and Cobra Commander did the voice of one of the bad guys who could turn into a spider.

Oh, and underneath Chuck Norris' beard, there is no chin...only another fist!

Strawberry looks like a creepy porn movie.  Which I'd take a peek at.  Oh - shit - Chris Hanson is here!

At least  3 of these posters look like 90's porn flicks.

Some good laughs in here. Gaga as Gem would scare the crap out of me.

Darkknight2280 5/14/2010 4:31:04 AM

I can totally see Gaga as JEM! lol

C.O.P.S was one of my fav cartoons! loved the toys and the animation was great! I need to get those on DVD if its even on DVD.

Voltron..wasnt that actually going to happen? What ever happened to that project?

SarcasticCaveman 5/14/2010 5:23:54 AM

I heard that the proposed Voltron movie would have taken place on a post-apocalyptic Earth...no thank you.  Even in first grade, I was able to appreciate how cool sci-fi with elements of fantasy is.  Did they ever even mention Earth in the two Voltron cartoons (that were popular in the US anyway)?
