Voltron: Defender of the Universe is a combining super robot that has captured the imagination of children worldwide. Voltron has two different incarnations: one made up of five robotic lions, the other of fifteen all-terrain vehicles. The lion variation is unquestionably more popular, though the vehicle variation still maintains loyal fans.
Voltron was introduced to the world in 1984 with the animated TV program Voltron: Defender of the Universe. The show was actually a sanitized edit of two unrelated Japanese anime series with much of the violence and Japanese cultural conventions removed.
Since the original airing, Voltron has stayed popular, spawning multiple toylines, a 1990s CGI-animated series, and a multiple comics series. Shout-outs to Voltron persist in pop culture, and a live-action motion picture is in development.
