The episodes seem to have been remastered a bit, because they are nice and clear and the sound quality is very good. Three of the episodes have audio commentaries (I haven't listened to those yet - just watching the episodes the first time through). Although Klone isn't quite as cool as I remembered him being, the show is still as fun as I recalled. Lots of noise and flash and Trobbits running around - all very silly, of course, very 80s, but that's what it was all about back then.
If you were a child of the 80s and remember "Blackstar" fondly, don't hesitate to get a copy of this 2-DVD set. It will bring a warm fuzzy to your day.
The basic story is relayed in the intro to the cartoon:
"John Blackstar, Astronaut, is swept through a blackhole, into an ancient alien universe. Trapped on the planet Sagar, Blackstar is rescued by the tiny trobbit people. In turn he joins their fight for freedom against the cruel Overlord who rules by the might of the Powerstar. The Powerstar is split into the Powersword and the Starsword. And so with Starsword in hand, Blackstar together with his allies, sets out to save the planet Sagar. His Destiny. I am John Blackstar."
Unfortunately, only 13 episodes were made:
1. City of the Ancient Ones
2. Search for the Starsword
3. The Lord of Time
4. The Mermaid of Serpent Sea
5. The Quest
6. Space Wrecked
7. Lightning City of the Clouds
8. Kingdom of Neptul
9. Tree of Evil
10. The Air Whales of Anchar
11. Overlord's Big Spell
12. Crown of the Sorceress
13. The Zombie Monster
While the production values were slightly less than the later He-man series, it was still a very entertaining and well done cartoon.
Pick up this classic cartoon to add to your collection. I don't think you will be disappointed.
Sadly many have not been released yet.
However, I was surprised & glad to see Blackstar on DVD.
I had never seen or heard of this one growing up. It fits right in with my collections.
