Here's a bunch of stills from Adult Swim's upcoming stop-motion-animated series Titan Maximum. From the creators of Robot Chicken, Titan Maximum is a comedic take and homage to all those 1980s giant-robot anime shows like Voltron. Unlike the quick A.D.D fueled sketches on Robot, Maximum has a permanent set of characters and continuous story lines.
Titan Maximum is set a hundred years in the future and revolves around an elite squadron, who must defend Saturn's moon Titan. The young brash pilots spaceships combine to form the giant robot Titan Maximum.
Here's the series description:
As the series opens, the team has been disbanded due to budget cuts, but must hastily reassemble when a former team member turns rogue and tries to conquer the solar system with an assault of giant monsters. Now, the fate of humanity rests in the hands of a team of dysfunctional misfits commanding a rustbucket robot.
Titan Maximum is the brain child of Robot Chicken creators Matthew Senreich, Seth Green and Robot Chicken producer Tom Root. Root will serve as the Co-Head Writer, and all three will write, direct and executive-produce the new series which premieres this fall.
Green will voice the show's villain and also features the voice talents of Breckin Meyer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Dan Milano and Eden Espinosa.
The characters look great, and the cast is solid. I love Robot Chicken, so it will be interesting to see how well these guys can continue a story. We'll see how they transition from a 15 minute run time filled with dozens of 5-30 second sketches, to a half hour show!
Titan Maximum premieres on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim Sept. 27 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
