    Same with Latin America, every friday, already shown Dredd Ascendant which was cool.

    Agreed, the plant ultralink monster has the coolest design from the rest.

    Based off the wiki page, looks like we will finally get to meet an Ultra-Link Hunter this season.

    Sucks for Steel that all the Ultra-Links are jerks.

    I will be curious to see how they incorporate Steel and the Ultra-Links into the plot.

    I'm delightfully surprised at how accurate to the cartoon the suit is, if a little bulkier and more organic/less streamlined than on the show :).

    I wonder how many Turbo Modes will make it into the movie? I think just using Strength and Flight would be pretty limiting...

    I also wonder if Steel is going to be both CG and a physical prop?

    If there's anything that worries me, though, is that the images could be indicative of the movie being darker and grittier than the cartoon which doesn't really fit with Max Steel. Though Steel is bound to provide plenty of comedy relief :p.

    According to the Mattel rep at Comic-Con there is only one alternate Turbo mode.

    They also said there are plans for another season of the show.

    Only one? Would have being 3 at least.....

    Thought the 2nd season would be the last unless they changed their minds. Latin America already showing new episodes every friday.

    Yeah. I thought so too. The way nerd corps works, they always end of some crazy cliffhanger.

    Dragon Booster? Season 3? Nope. Onto Storm Hawks...

    Wow, I can't believe I never noticed that :sweat:.

    You'd think with how much Nerd Corps. has grown that they could manage to produce two shows at once but I guess considering the level of quality for their CGI and how much it improves series after series that they maybe don't have that luxury?

    The movie only having one Turbo Mode is weird... unless it's a very versatile Turbo Mode, but otherwise I think it's a real missed opportunity that the movie won't be featuring more.

    I wonder how many new Turbo Modes we'll be getting for season 2?

    He could've been misleading me, but he said there'd be only one for this movie. Also said the movie has a "low budget" at $120 million ;). That's just how it is in today's climate. Sounds like they want to break everyone into this world slowly. I think they are aiming for less humor and to try and make it more serious.

    Well to be fair, while Nerd Corps does great work on Max Steel, it's more Mattel and Fremantle Media's show.

    Also Slugterra technically got three seasons plus two DTV movies that continue right where the show leaves off. Not sure if they will go beyond that, but Slugterra seems to have had a decent run for them.

    I hope Max Steel gets a third season though because I want to see the status quo get shaken up more. More characters, love triangle with Jet, things like that. I feel like with the first season there are tons of story threads they could explore if they really wanted.

    Say it ain't so? Of course. My least favorite nerd corps series gets the most love :/ Ah jeez.

    In Battle Force 5, I wanted to see the new enemies teased at the end of season 2 and the new upgrades the heroes got. Who would take over for the leader?

    In Storm Hawks, I believe the team was flying into an unknown dimension? Especially after such an epic cliffhanger?

    In Dragon Booster, I was heavily anticipating the dude's partner receiving his own battle armor, but noo.....

    Did the commercial look like this? http://youtu.be/kvHwQFKueJg
    Likely not, though.
    Ya know I don't care what anyone thinks, I love the little Happy Meal characters.

    That's a good question. I don't remember what has a already aired of the show on XD, but I know a ton of episodes likely aired somewhere and have been leaked. And even a few more ended up on Netflix. Maybe they won't air on TV at all and just appear on Netflix.
