Right on troop, you took the words right out of my mouth. There was a report last year that a Starblazers movie was in the works, but nothing since. I wonder with the way things are these days if they'd get away with calling it the Yamato. Maybe that is going to be the story for the ID4 sequel.

I loved Voltron as a kid. I liked the lion version the best, vehicle voltron was ok, never saw gladiator volton but my cousin had some of the toys. Voltron was acutally an amalgamation of several japanese cartoons (like Robotech) which included Go-lion (5 lion), Diarugger XV, and Light Speed Electric God Albegas (which I never remember actually seeing up north). That all said Vehicle Voltron was based on 3 vehicles Air, Earth, and Water. Those three vehicles in turn could break into smaller vehicles and all together I think there were 15 vehicles. Also the pilot that got killed in the lion voltron was Sven, but he wasn't the leader. In the American version he didn't die, but left the team to help lead a revolt on some other planet. In the original japanese version he was killed.

You guys all talk out of your butt. the guy said "It's Alive", not "It's a lion" Oh, wait, this is actually a real Voltron news. Sorry.

Well, I found my seizure medication (after the report of a Johnny Quest movie). Now I get to up the dosage. Thanks, Hollywood!

HA..HA ha HA! I knew there were 3 of them. HA! by the way the OFF THE SUBJECT. Whoever came up with the expanding window advertisements n this site sucks a dick! I can't stand it!I cant even fucking cruise this site with out some goddamn ad I dont care about popping up! If I was Fucking interested in Flash Gordon(which I was before this annoying, and invasive advertising) I would click on the ad. The same goes for that fucking stupid Who wants to be a superhero! I don't want my computer to slow down because the tip of my mouse gets to close to a freakin ad! MANIA STOP THESE ADS! now this is how I feel if any other site users feel this way please let Mania know it. I gotta feeling this won't work which will prove my point to all of you who hate when I say you can't change executives decisions by complaining.

This is a really bad idea. Lion robots, I thought it was kind of rediculous even when I was a kid. Now Battle of the planets was cool.

SHOGUN WARRIORS anyone? When VOLTRON first came out in the US they were bad ass Matchbox diecast figures. In 1985 Toy biz made some really shitty actfigures and plastic lions but never did the 15 ships or 3 Robots. Were the 3 robots ever on TV. I remember Christmas 84 Voltron 3 was all you could find in stores. In regards to the plot synopsis THAT IS JUST AS BAD AS CHRISTIAN TERRORIST BUSH CONSIDERING A DRAFT FOR THE WAR HE WANTED AND STARTED. The plot sounds like Starblazers meets Futurama. Will Bender be the red or green lion

An awesome VOLTRON comic series was published by DEVILS DUE comics in Chicago in 2002-2003 I believe. It took the lion series TV show frame by frame and put it to paper but expanded it and made it more violent and dark. The 5 guys are sent to use force if necessary and take the 5 lions back to earth. They chose to stay and defend Voltrons home world. The 5 lions have a mental connection to each pilot. Sven cannot handle it and he gets sick and is replaced by the Princess. Zarkon recruits him but he does not turn traitor but he is pissed at the team. Earth scientists build the 15 ship Voltron but it is not as strong as the lions. The 15 ships are sent to recover the lions when it is found the original team disobeyed orders and is not brin ging the lions to Earth. There is a pretty good battle going on when some robo beasts show up and both Voltrons have to fight together. The series lasted about a year and a half and began a great storyline telling King Zarkon' s story as a child and soldier leadin to how he became ruler. The witch was also wriiten in a very dark and graphic manner but the series died due to lack of sales even though the reviews were nothing but positive. Check the $1 bin at comic shops because alot of stores have the issues there. Its a great read.
