Clearer video of the SDCC trailer. Mute the volume.
This should last us until next week. Perfect.
Lance's short b-day will be tomorrow at noon, and next week will be the 7 new episodes of Voltron as is Netflix's new show policy.
4 second clip
Voltron: Game of thrones
I think that's everything.
>All those screeching landwhales
We'll never get a good Voltron thread free of tehse fujoshits, will we?
Convention trailers 101 mate. This one is a bit better, but the OG paladins are still flaring my tism. The big guy looks pretty clearly to be yellow to me, and the chick in the back looks blue. Was Alfor the fucking green paladin all along?
>Zarkon wants to misuse lifeforce
>Guardian of Life throws hands
oh shit, this is plausible.
it's honestly pretty weird that no one can seem to agree on which paladin Alfor was, i've seen decent arguments for every color BUT green so that would be funny
The main trailer was released on the day of SDCC on a site called nerdist, and then they released it on Youtube. What's posted on the OP is a trailer that only con-goers got to see.
Here are all the trailers:
Could you give us the colors of the OG paladins elder?
I legitimately don't remember. I remember they met ninja resistance aliens and the villain king died and red learned he was actually an alien and girl learned her brother was dead and they hinted the prince would return and the witch was fine still.
But I can't remember anything about black lion guy.
Oh sick I can actually tell what's happening at all.
I'm betting those new galra fighters are going to be piloted by the galra waifus + lotor and be a huge pain in the ass for the paladins. Might lead to more interesting robot fights too, since usually they fight either giant single enemies or fleets of disposable mooks.
>Zarkon's head sinking out of despair at his waifu's bedside
I wasn't ready for these feels
So maybe it goes a little something like this
>Planet Doom gets fucking glassed by something Voltron couldn't stop or forsee, possibly due to inaction by Alfor
>Zarkon's waifu and maybe a fuckload of Galrans are hurt and killed by this
>driven to the edge of sanity by the swiftness of the impending death of his wife and home planet Zarkon starts dabbling in black quintessence magic to try to help her/survivors
>goes a bit too far in a few places (Zarkon's a funnier character than we've ever had before)
>suddenly it's Galra and their allies vs Alteans and their allies
>Alfor realizes that Voltron is essentially an atom bomb in the wrong hands and due to the div, so he breaks Voltron into its component lions and hides it all + Allura
>Zarkon decides he's going to free the shit out of the rest of the galaxy and provide peace and security to everyone by conquering all the things
How much you want to bet he's keeping his waifu alive in some kind of stasis pod like Mr. Freeze
>Alfor realizes that Voltron is essentially an atom bomb in the wrong hands and due to the possible divided loyalties of the team and his former allies, he breaks Voltron into its component lions and hides it all + Allura
I think something else spurs the big conflict and Zarkon ends up wrecking planet Doom himself, because he's a giant evil vampire turtle. Like the Alteans are about to stop him doing ~whatever~ and he sacrifices the planet to destroy 99% of their military or something.
Also waifu is either dead or turned into some freakish quintessence monster before they refined the technique enough for Zarkon to use
Yeah yeah, they said Alfor is going to do something terrible, but I think the people who think he's fully/mostly responsible for the entire planet getting iced are just villainfagging too hard. The staff are also insistent that the backgroundian paladins are going to get fully fleshed out and that Lotor is 3deep5me, and we all know that's bullshit too.
Bara will avenge him
Their love will survive this.
>I think the people who think he's fully/mostly responsible for the entire planet getting iced are just villainfagging too hard
In my defense, I wasn't implying that Alfor did it on purpose and his implied guilt would either stem from it being something he couldn't have predicted but people assume that he should have, or something he was alerted to but chose not to act upon.
I don't actually think that Alfor is the secret villain of the show, but if you asked Zarkon/Haggar/others from that time period they might argue that he is. That's just their perception though.
probably just answer some mild questions/reblog some fanart.
I hope they have an intern picking stuff out for him to respond to, because you couldn't pay me enough to dig through the garbage pile of shitty shipping questions he's going to get flooded with. let alone all the terrible art of Lance as an obese jew-haired genderblob with insane nigger lips
But the questions and fanart will be on twitter. Will he have a camera pointed in front of him? Guess I shouldn't ask these questions since we'll find out tomorrow.
>Do you respect Lance
>What's Lance's last name
Oh man, the comments are going to be a shitshow.
They're also missing Hunk and Pidge. I guess they're satisfied with how Keith, Shiro, and Lance came out so they're releasing them. The Zarkon action figure looked good though, they should've released it along with these three.
Like I said, the Keith,Lance, and Shiro toys look better than they used to so they're releasing them now. The Zarkon toy looked finished imo.
Meanwhile Hunk's and Pidge's toys had hilarious expressions on their faces so I'm assuming they'll be released later along with Zarkon.
Wish they had a set for adult collectors. I'd be willing to shell out for S.H. Figuarts versions or something comparable. The best we'll probably get is Funko shit, though.
It's like I'm being oppressed personally.
The Paladins need to get shirtless more often.
I agree....though they could always get him to voice a male Galra relative if his, if we learn more of his family.
I met Michael a few weeks ago at a con. Definitely one of the best VAs ever.
>"Aren't they rivals?"
>"It's a big happy family! Lance always feels loved by them."
>"I relate to Lance. We both love the ladies and think we're smooth."
The next day, tumblr, twitter and instagram all explode with "Shada the snake" memes and "We can only trust Steven Yeun".
Cute. I can see him saying this.
>"I relate to Lance. We both love the ladies and think we're smooth."
I wasn't looking forward to the stream before but now I'am if he'll permanently shut down the rapid shippers.
It's okay to like a gay ship, but it's not okay to hate canon Lance
The daddy issues is strong with this one.
Any more squares? Remember this is not like a con bingo. This one can be a bit more far out.
I want to pet his fuzz.
Bara seeks revenge
Pidge gets an episode about her family angst.
Pidge gets incest undertones with Matt.
It wasn't the Keith show so much as they threw a bunch of plot points at Keith and somehow managed to go absolutely nowhere satisfying with it, meanwhile everyone besides Shiro kind of fades into the background and Shiro himself feels like he's just used as a prop for Keith's arc.
Me too. I wonder if he sheds. Or does his fur just grow and grow, but he has to keep it trimmed.
>People cheering for Lotor's harem
>Silence when red girl appears
>Pidge gets incest undertones with Matt.
Don't be retarded either.
>ywn be on Sendak's grooming squad
Just let me die
Wait does this mean Allura will get a Paladin figure too?
Does this mean I can do Kallura AND piss off the Klancers just because her figure merely exists?
I think Shiro joining the resistance covers that, but I'll add it just because we're only getting 7 episodes.
alien gril flirts with Lance. this is the season, I can feel it
>ywn be covered in purple hair after a long, hot, sweaty grooming session
It would reverse Keith's arc, as well as the development Allura is going to go through in S3 to become a paladin.
You'll piss me off for being obsessed with other shippers.
>You'll piss me off for being obsessed with other shippers.
I'm just feeling catty tonight. There's a lot of great things happening next week with the media I am interested in and it'll be Friday tomorrow, so I'm extra jumpy.
Shit how could I have forgotten about the Paladin colors? This also includes Alfor.
I am fucking pumped.
I have that day off just to watch Voltron too.
Snow White is getting a new doll.
And P5 is going to have new announcements.
Next week is going to be fantastic.
I'll keep that square vague.
Alright here is the bingo card. Everyone take a look at it and tell me what needs to be changed. I tried to make sure any contradictory squares were not in the same bingo lining.
Lotor looks kind of ugly. Not a fan of vld's style.
They give the characters strong pointy shaped chins. Look at what they did to Allura, she looks nothing like pic-related
show me on the doll where your jimmies were rustled, anon
This is why Allura looks better in fanart than she does in her canon art.
I like his outfit, but the hair looks dated, and not in the good way like the other designs. I hope he puts on his helmet later or something to make up for it. The sharp angles aren't great for the bishie look but I think it's workable as long as they do something with the hair.
OG Lotor/Sincline was kind of a buffoon though.
>OG Lotor/Sincline was kind of a buffoon though.
But he was hot as fuck.
>When your male lead character looks better than your main lead girl
How? How does Keith look better than Allura? They have the same shaped pointy chins, actually nevermind I figured it out, it's cause she looks like a butch and acts like one.
I don't feel like she needs protecting because she's so manly. Before anyone says anything Lauren even stated that they made sure she wasn't portrayed as her OG self. Guess I like and want to protect vulnerable characters then.
The way he carries himself is attractive
I like Allura a lot more than I like Keith but her haircut is kind of shit. Keith's is too actually, but it's easier to ignore.
He can look really nice in some shots, but his design is a bit more generic than the other characters.
>it's all about shipping
of fucking course, kys shipfag.
The hallucination scene with the BoM had him pretty vulnerable.
That's all I want anon. I just want Allura to act vulnerable around the paladins or Coran. I have'nt really seen any of that except for in the comics, and whenever she's with the mice.
Are you serious? Do you want to go there? All of Season 2 is Keith being vulnerable. In the first episode he's being vulnerable and so on and so on. When Allura hugs him especially.
Would Allura being a fail pilot also show her vulnerable and childish side? It will be good to see her become a paladin because now she will spend most of her time having to bond with other teens her age instead of sitting in the castle ship all day.
This isn't vulnerable to you? You don't want to protect him? Allura is a butch and manly. What they need to do is make her less of a butch and more soft and gentle to the audience.
The part that stuck out the most to me was Zarkon kneeling beside that Altean lady. It's a Galra bed for two so I'm gonna say that was his wife and she's dying or something.
So does this mean Haggar is not Lotor's mother? I always hated that theory.
i want Allura to plow my ass with her slimy alien dick and smoke a cigar whilst i gather up my clothes and leave the room trying not to cry. keith has resting bitch face and I wouldn't even lick his ass
It would be pretty shit if they made Haggar romantically involved with Zarkon. Can't a woman turn to the dark side for reasons other than love? Let's have the Alteans wrong her in some way.
Wait a minute. Since they'll reveal the old paladins and Zarkon and Alfors final fight then they just might reveal how Keith's mother got to earth. One of the theories is that she arrived on planet earth by the blue lion.
Lotor and Allura are possible, though it would be very dumb. Keith isn't Altean as far as we know. I really doubt any of it, but people pretending it's all about shipping are jumping at shadows, there's always been this sort of speculation in space operas, Star Wars already made it kind of a thing.
First the theory has to be proven correct. If Keith's mother never got into the blue lion then the 'The blue paladin is Keith's mother' theory will be BTFO
>Lancefag celebrating their fav's birthday subtlety
Because Hunk, Lance, and Keith are all obviously different races and Hunk and Lance aren't aliens so there's no sci-fi trickery going on with their biology that might obfuscate their non-human heritage like Keith. I get that antis are annoying about the brother line but it seems to me that you're letting your experience in the fandom color your perception of everything they do and say when some of it's just good old-fashioned bad speculation that comes with every series. Take a break or something if you're this bitter, jesus.
Okay it's all done!
It took me a while to find the right image.
>Take a break or something if you're this bitter, jesus.
Of course. It's always subject to change before the big day. Any new trailer can destroy a square so we have to update it.
We want to get a bingo like we did the first time!
You do? I'll post more as long as anons don't mind some fanart.
But he didn't?
Doesn't Lance flirting with Allura and getting jealous of her running away with Keith count?
>Keith is 100% alien
He could be, but S2 implied he was half.
Overall a good bingo
He didn't but it was like he "died."
Flirting is not the same as romance.
As for the alien bit, we'll I'm sure he's 100% alien now that the ethnicity question was asked in SDCC.
If I ever get to go to a panel again, I will ask the VA question, as in the DotU VA question.
I remember there was some debate over whether Azula was the Weblum Galra because that Galra had purple hands but apparently that's just part of the suit.
>hunk is not a joke
The whole season? You know this won't happen. If it's just for one scene then that might as well be a free space because we know he gets a cool moment in episode 1.
>lotor identifies keith as a galra
I think he's going to know already from the beginning. His lackey from the Weblum seems very loyal and probably reported it right away. I'm betting they'll try to recruit Keith to their side and it'll play into the season cliffhanger.
We can't expect too much out of this show but I really hope we get to have some flashblack to how Lance and Hunk became friends. Maybe even a line or two will suffice. They are so cute and I want to see how they became close buds.
thoughts on this? besides the last part on shiro, what do you anons think about altea still existing, possibly?
>So Tyler Labine just had a really short Live on Instagram where he said there wasn’t much development for Hunk in season 3 or 4 but in the fifth season he gets more development apparently!!
God that's dumb.
I'll believe in Pollux before Altea.
By the way that scene was not a "bright light." Obviously there is a light but it wasn't an outdoor light. If it was, then it would be a sun-setting light.
This bitch is one of the shallurans that was talking shit about Romelle and how she shouldn't be Shiro's love interest. Well if Shiro got transported to some place full of Alteans (or Polluxians) then I hope he ends up falling in love with Romelle.
this is #1 on my wishlist for the show. it is also the only thing on the list
>There’s just not that much room in this season to develop for Hunk. There’s seven episodes.”
>Which isn’t to say that Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos aren’t aware, and actively moving in a direction to develop Hunk, but it won’t happen in the seven episodes hitting Netflix in August.
>“That’s not to say there’s nothing,” Labine added. “And obviously we are, and I know because we’ve been recording future episodes that there are things coming, I think I teased that on Twitter, and it’s true. It’s just that we’re going to take a while to get there. .
Sheith shit. Keith gives Shiro his BoM blade for protection, like how Romelle gave Ryou her dagger, if they do this then according to heero, Keith is Romelle and sheith would be canon since they'll get together in the end.
She's blacklisted but I'll post the theory just for you if you want.
My stupid theory was Zarkon as loving husband who was compelled to do bad things because his waifu died. People on these threads were calling it lame and stupid shit but now I guess it looks like there's some truth to it.
Eh, I guess I just didn't see Zarkon as the affectionate and romantic type. I thought Haggar would be his wife, and if she wasn't then Zarkon's wife wasn't going to be that important or a motivator towards his imperialism.
To me it seemed obvious they were going to go that route because of the old Golion rape elements they they wouldn't want to touch at all.
>I guess I just didn't see Zarkon as the affectionate and romantic type.
Zarkon is a gentleman above gentleman.
I hated whenever someone mentioned test tube babies or clones.
Even worse, though it didn't happen here, were the people that theorized Shiro is part Altean because of genetic experimentation and that's why his hair is white.
>They made Lotor a fucking feminist.
I need an edit of Lotor with a fedora right now.
Garrett will show up, but as a sentient A.I. that Coran helped design. He'll install himself on the castle-ship and do sassy bantz.
After overcoming a galran sleeper virus in the final battle, he will heroically sacrifice himself/the ship after telling Coran he is like a father to him
I know a lot of people here are against Lotor getting a redemption arc. If that's the case then how will the main character deal with him? You think they will kill him? Or maybe make some sort of deal with him?
I just don't want some stupid Zuko shit, but we're going to get stupid Zuko shit right down to the daddy and mommy issues. Not that original Lotor didn't have those, but my argument still stands.
>Voltron is trending #1 on tumblr
>check to see why
>it's Lance's birthday
I only gave this show a cursory watch a year ago and dropped it after season 1, but I fucking hate this terrible character and his fans.
>y'all really don't care about your characters? imagine letting your latino character not be reduced to a flirt...imagine caring about him
>imagine this complex, sensitive boy being valued for so much more than just comic relief and flirting :^)
>imagine this caring boy who misses his moms hugs protects people he Just met calling them His Friend not reduced 2 a stereotype 4 his bday
>imagine this boy being allowed to celebrate his latinx cultura in a way that isn't stereotypical, but rather reflective of his experiences
>imagine this insecure and anxious boy being surrounded by his friends and slowly realizing that he is important, both to voltron
>mfw I think of my perfect boy getting the treatment he deserves
It's like Lancefags are parodying themselves at this point
>Finally got around to getting Netflix
>This was the first show I started watching on it
I hope Lance gets some alien pussy next season so these morons will fuck off already.
You can like Lance without being a lancefag.
Not to sound like a shill, but Netflix has tons of underrated cartoons, so I hope you have fun with it.
>not a single girl
>no fat brown dude
>lance has the same skin color as Keith and Shiro
I love these toys alreas
Cutting his needle-chin makes him way hotter
The closest thing we have to go on is a scene from a flashback where Alfor was still alive. There was a shot with a crowd of Galra and they all looked much more similar than modern Galra do.
Don't even hope, they'll just ingore all of his "Lance likes girls" inplications and will tweet for weeks how Shada confirmed klance being canon by just mentioning Keith once. Like always
they repeatedly get BTFO by the staff, the comics, the marketing, the show itself, etc. and still can't understand why canon doesn't reflect the made-up snowflake fanon Lance. it's frustrating but also kinda funny i guess
real Lance is a little shitter
and that's cute
isn't there literally just the one in the pilot? what kind of subtle, high-concept fart jokes is vld making that go over my head
ah yeah, I forgot about that. most of Hunk's stuff is the running joke about him having a delicate stomach so it's confusing when people bang on about fart jokes like it's a show staple or something
Where has Allura been bossy? The closes moment I can remember is near the beginning of season one when she was trying to prepare the paladins for Voltron and they started a food fight with her.
Birthday smooches for the birthday boy.
I think she's bossy, but that just comes from her being royalty and the ship captain, she's just inexperienced so it's often Shiro who makes the calls, the only time she standed up to him was the Galra ship infiltration. As the Blue Paladin she'll be "under Keith" as a team member, so I think we won't see her make decisions, but I wonder how they'll handle the castleship commandment.
>I wonder how they'll handle the castleship commandment.
Finally, it's Coran's time to shine.
He's not a special Altean tho, will they have to rush Allura back whenever they want to warp away, or will Slav update the system so that they'll able to hold 5 Allura-charges in the system?
She's our special old guy, but he doesn't have those superior genetics.
When will we get to see The Gorgeous Man throw down?
I want Coran to be my daddy and
give me a proper upbringing full of love and emotional support, that provides a firm moral compass while also allowing me to forge my own path as an individual

I KNEW IT I FUCKING KNEW THAT GODDAMN COW WOULD COME BACK BASED VLD BRING ME THAT FAT SWEET MILKY HANGER
>>But he also said Lotor and Lance won't like each other
I figured as much since he's kind of trying to destroy them and all but part of me still wants a scene where they go to the same spa and don't recognize each other because of the face masks/towels and hit it off trading beauty tips. I still can't take Lotor seriously, I need to see him in action more before I can accept that he won't be in any jokes.
>>Lance will be getting better with his sharpshooting skills

Why are all the VAs so fucking
Lance has some nice lil tiddies in that pic tho
cop drama/10, would re-watch in syndication for years
she's 1/64th cherokee princess
Both of them would be really bad at either role but I think they'd settle on Coran as bad cop and Lance as good cop. Coran would try to scare the criminal with all sorts of threats about elaborate Altean torture contraptions they have waiting in the other room and Lance tries to cut deals with the criminal in exchange for information but he makes the deals too good and one-sided so the criminal winds up walking out the door with a giant bowl of Hunk's cookies and a ticket to an all-expenses-paid space cruise, promising them he'll call back in a week with the info they want (he doesn't and they never hear from him again).
Next thursday morning will be our pre-season 3 threads.
>Keith getting to use that throne of a bed
What a lucky empress
Once these toys hit my TRU I assure you I'll take all the Zeith photos.
Might custom Keith's ugly face though.
