So the new series has premiered on Disney XD. Three episodes were shown next week. Disney XD schedules on new episodes are sporadic at times, so not sure how they plan on releasing new episodes next week. I assume these three episodes were like the show pilot/miniseries and they are going to one episode a week next. The new show was animated by Nerd Corps (Battle Force 5, Slugterra). So the animation is pretty solid for the most part. Now I got to be honest, I never watched the old series or kept up with the toys and storyline or what have you. I only knew about in passing. The new series seems somewhat reminiscent of Generator Rex, except instead of Nanites its "Turbo Energy." It's still not clear to me what the Elementors and the UltraLinks are. I guess the Elementors are aliens. The descriptions make it sound like Steel is an alien, though early on it sounded like he was a lab experiment. I did like that Max's mom turned out to be a secret agent ninja. That was a nice surprise in the second episode. Having to watch Max constantly hide Steel and the steel suit he needs to wear would've gotten tiresome.
