Good news! Dreamworks and Netflix’s updated take on Voltron isn’t just coming back, it’s coming back even sooner than we expected: Season two will begin in late 2016.
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.
Because Sideshow Collectibles has created a 27-inch-tall(!) statue of Voltron, Defender of the Universe, that will take care of $1,250 of the dollars that are apparently burning a hole in your wallet, purse, or checking account.
Voltron fans have been waiting to see their favorite property resurrected for a long time. Rumors of movies have come and gone, but finally, on June 10, a new show is coming to Netflix. To celebrate, Voltron is coming to another new medium: an art gallery.
What we’ve got is the sizzle reel that was originally shown during the WonderCon panel for the upcoming show—no dialogue, but the animation from Studio Mir (Legend of Korra) is just as good as you’d expect from them.
Summer always feels so full of things we should be doing, and yet, when there’s so much new television, why should we even bother to leave the house? There’s a bevy of new series about the supernatural, there are some welcome returns, including Mr. Robot. But this summer’s biggest show is the long-awaited Preacher—…
Netflix is bringing back Voltron, and they’ve just revealed the first glimpse of the cartoon, and it looks awesome.
We’ve known for a while that the planned Voltron reboot had evolved from a Dreamworks movie into a Dreamworks TV series for Netflix—but now the streaming video company has lifted the lid on how Voltron: Legendary Defenders is taking shape. And good news, lion-robot fans: It sounds and looks a hell of a lot like Voltron…
Netflix’s animated Voltron reboot just took a step in the right directon. Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos have been named as the showrunners for Voltron: Legendary Defender, both known for their work on Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel, The Legend of Korra.
Voltron was one of the original ‘cool transforming toy robot sets that combined to make a bigger, awesomer, toy robot’ but given the restrictions of ‘80s manufacturing techniques, the giant robot had some limitations when it came to posability. But Toynami’s new Ultimate Voltron EX doesn’t.
The instant DreamWorks Animation acquired Classic Media’s stable of animated properties in 2013, it started talking about a Voltron reboot. Given the decade(!) of talk about a live-action Voltron movie, most people generally assumed DreamWorks would also be making a film. Apparently not!
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…
