TSR doesn't like random pictures!

This is where we discuss anything that is not specifically about toys. Discussion can be toy-related though. Basically anything BUT politics and religion is discussed here.

Doesn't seem likely. Seems like everybody just forgot that one existed.

Then again, the writers DO seem to really like the old stuff, so maybe they'll work something in. It would be cool to see vehicle Voltron developed by Galaxy Garrison as Earth's protector or something.

Heck, they should throw in Gladiator Voltron, too, just because. Maybe make it a robeast or something.

that's what im thinking, that Galaxy Garrison develops it for Earth. and as you say, the developers seem to be real fans, so I don't see why it should be ruled out. Definitely need to let Lion Voltron get it's legs with a few more seasons tho.

I was reading up on the whole thing the other day. Apparently, after a season with the Lion Voltron (an edited version of the anime Beast King GoLion), the show creators wanted to continue by using other shows. They made a season out of Armored Fleet Dairugger XV, a somewhat similar but unrelated series they had used for a few additional scenes in season one. This became the Vehicle Team. It was not popular, and so they instead created new episodes with the Lion Force. The idea behind Vehicle Voltron actually was that he was the Voltron of the Near Universe, and Lion Voltron was Voltron of the Far Universe, so having the vehicle team protect Earth makes sense.

A third season was going to be made out of Lightspeed Electroid Albegas, and Matchbox even released toys for it (Gladiator Voltron), but due to the unpopularity of the Vehicle Team Voltron, plans were scrapped, with Gladiator Voltron appearing only in the aforementioned toys and an issue of the comics. Gladiator was apparently Voltron of the Middle Universe or somesuch.

I would also like to see the Vehicle Team show up on the new series, but given their unpopularity and the additional legal issues that are liable to be involved (unless they completely redesign the thing) I wouldn't count on it. Probably our best hope is to get a few of the pilots in cameos.

Honestly, I'd be cool with a total redesign. Vehicle isn't nearly as iconic, so if the "Earth Voltron" was just some assortment of vehicles, I don't think it would really make that much difference. Car shoes and something red on the chest, and it's close enough.

I'm calling it now; Keith's speeder thing in the first episode is actually a reference to Ginger's red fighter.

This guy's "blog" tumblr thing is pretty good. I thought this one was a highlight.

This one's probably mostly for Darth, but whatever. It's Friday!
