SilverHawks: Tanktimus Becomes Partly Metal, Partly Real


Recommended Posts

Two challenges ago I did a Thundercats theme. The SilverHawks are basically Thundercats IN SPACE! It’s the same animation studio, same voice actors, same formula, similar characters, a bad guy who transforms into a more powerful bad guy, with a cowboy colonel who flies a spaceship. What’s not to love?

 

While Thundercats had more staying power and was probably the better cartoon, I do prefer the theme song from SilverHawks.

 

As an added bonus, here’s the first episode.

 



+Steelwill_24+WEB.jpg

Steel Will: No surprise that the Silverhawk whose face mask is a football facemask is the strongest. Again I will be going for 10 lift days. For zero week I’ll be doing NF yoga when I would normally do lift day to let me recover from my gains from last challenge when I finally put the total of my big three lifts over 700 (got it to 715). Next on the horizon is 800.

Steel Heart: Steel Heart is also strong, but I needed someone for the speed goal. 10 run days. At the end of last challenge I dropped plans to train for a 10k so I could focus on a faster 5k time. I’ll be working through a 5k training program on Runkeeper that will run through the challenge.

Commander Stargazer: While Commander Stargazer’s upgrades are from a previous generation of tech, he sits around in headquarters so he might as well be cooking (plus I never liked the copper kid that much). I’m going to stick with my goal of cooking paleo and no more than three variances a week.

 

silverhawks__quicksilver__by_carlosdatto

Quicksilver: Quicksilver was the leader (despite the fact that he was a lieutenant and bluegrass was a colonel) and I usually pick the leader character for Domestic Rangering. Clean bathroom, kitchen, mop, vacuum, take out trash, do laundry 1x per week. Quicksilver was my favorite, as I generally gravitated towards the leaders of these cartoons as my favorite characters.

 

Bluegrass_10_Color+No+ImpastoPSD+WEB.jpg

Bluegrass: Bluegrass was the pilot of the Mirage, the spaceship the Silverhawks flew in. He didn’t have wings, but he make up for it with a weaponized electric guitar, becuase 80s. Any combination of Foam Rolling and an NF mobility Session for a total of 3 times a week.


Here’s episode 2 so I don’t leave you hanging.

Following because I loved thundercats and this is a new one on me. 

I thought this might be unfamiliar for a lot of folks.

Following. This is uncharted cartoon territory for me. So please no spoilers in case I want to watch it.

I'm not sure there's much to spoil ;)

That is a good theme tune; never heard of this so I'll have to watch those episodes.

 

Following for more awesomeness (and for once doing it before the thread explodes into a thousand pages)!

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

Thanks. Watching those episodes has reminded me of how much fun life was at 5 and 6 years old.
