Can you believe it’s been over 36 years?
On September 10, 1984, the animated Television series Voltron captivated kids’ imaginations in the US. In 2015 Voltron: Defender of the Universe movie was released by DreamWorks. The Voltron series was adapted from two different Japanese anime, Beast King GoLion (Lion Force Voltron first season) and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV (Vehicle Team Voltron second season consisting of a Voltron force of 15 members). GoLion means five lions, which combine into the super robotic universe defender Voltron.
King Alfus from the planet Arus had created the lion force Voltron, but the evil Haggar had divided the robot into five separate lions. Five peacekeeping space pilots (Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge, and Sven) searched and found the five robot lions. The legendary Voltron was reawakened (in Voltron III) to protect the planet Arus against King Zarkon from Doom, the witch Haggar and the robeasts army.
We have spent days tracking down the five lions and kids’ Voltron gear to help courageous Voltron fans compile the super robot Voltron for hours and hours of roleplaying fun. There is even a Voltron wallet to consider.

Voltron Toys from DreamWorks Movie and Television Series

The DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Exclusive Lions of Voltron Set is the best Voltron toys for kids eight years and older. Assembled, the Voltron action figure stands about 8 inches tall and 12 inches with the wings facing upward. The size is perfect for collectors and not too small for an 8-year old.
Putting together the robot, Voltron requires skill, which means the lion toys are safe from younger siblings. Your third grader has the muscle control and motor skills to assemble the five lions into a Voltron action figure. The task may improve and strengthen coordination skills.
The package consists of the five lions that make up Voltron, the black lion, red lion, blue lion, green lion, and the yellow lion. The lions are made from quality die-cast metal parts and plastic. The product is sturdy and durable and consists of the right amount of metal to avoid the toy from toppling. The completed figure measures 8.5 x 13 x 8.5 inches. Three AAA batteries are needed to activate the 15+ articulation points.
The Voltron action figure also separates again into five lions. Some joints could be tight, like with any new toy, and will loosen with use. Make sure you push the legs until it clicks; otherwise, the legs may fall off. The wings rotate upwards in robot mode but do not flip from side to side.
