Lions were found and heads were formed when Voltron returned to TV this month with the arrival of Dreamworks’ reboot, Legendary Defender, on Netflix. Even if you were never a fan of the classic cartoon, it’s well worth a binge-watch, but there are still a few bugs in this debut season. Here’s what worked and what…
The Men at Arms folks can retire now. Not only did they faithfully recreate the blazing sword from Voltron, but they took “blazing” in the best, most literal way, in the sense that the blade itself is always enveloped by flames. It seems extremely dangerous but it’s also so damn cool.
With the Netflix-funded resurrection of Voltron, there’s a renewed interest in toys that all merge together to form a giant menacing mech. But menacing isn’t quite the best way to describe this towering robot made up of transforming characters from Disney’s Toy Story. Cute? Colorful? Must-have? Those are all better.
Netflix is bringing back Voltron, and they’ve just revealed the first glimpse of the cartoon, and it looks awesome.
Ah, Giant Robots. Who doesn't love giant mechanical creations stomping around and kicking butt? Over the years there have been many badass robots and mechs that have wormed their way into our hearts, but some are just especially great. So here are our picks for the 10 greatest giant robots, ranked.
Voltron turns 30 this year, and to celebrate Toynami are releasing this Jumbo-sized toy of the marvellous Robot - with a pretty eye-watering price tag.
Second only to the Transformers and G.I. Joe as the greatest cartoon/toy lines of the 1980s, Voltron broke new ground in marketing, demanding kids beg for not one but five different toys in order to assemble one giant robot. In hindsight it was pretty sneaky, and now that us children of the 1980s are all grown up, we…
Completing the triad of 80s cartoon and toy perfection, Voltron proudly stood alongside G.I. Joe and the Transformers as the best ways for a kid to relax on a Saturday morning after a long week of school. And since the holidays are just around the corner, if you know someone still holding a candle for a childhood…
How do you create the world's largest virtual optical telescope and the most advanced visible-light astronomical observatory? Teamwork. The Very Large Telescope at the Paranal Observatory combines the visual prowess of four huge telescopes—for the first time ever—to mimic a 130-meter-wide mirror.
I call my socket set Voltron. Not because I love the show (I do!) but because my current socket set is comprised of my five previous sets—I lose sockets constantly. But with the B&D ReadyWrench it's a physical impossibility.
If I ever have a daughter, I'm letting her wear any costume she wants. But—in the name of all that is sweet, sugary, and adorable—I hope she wants a Voltron one like this. Update: Now with how-it-was-made pictures!
Sony's Voltron iPhone game looks interesting, because you get to pilot the separate lions in 2/3 isometric view, and in a head to head fighter mode, but ultimately disappointing. Why? Because you can't get four friends and make a Voltron.
If you thought that Voltron or Power Rangers was entertaining, wait until you see Engine Oh G12. Its robot is assembled from twelve different vehicles, including a shark car.
Fact: One day we'll have mechanical super squadrons that can assemble into giant, even more super mechs motivated by the sole goal of either destroying or preserving humanity. But of course they'll all require sponsorships.
