Netflix is bringing back Voltron, though it appears that he might have got a demotion from being the ‘Defender of the Universe’ to a ‘Legendary Defender.’
I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for the robot, though for some reason when growing up I thought that it was selfish that only one of the four lions could be Voltron’s head, when they were all essentially identical, except for their color.
Then there’s the practicality, or the lack thereof. Most robots, no matter what they transform into, tended to retain important physical features, like hands.
But not Voltron, which were replaced by the heads of lions. I guess I shouldn’t be very critical, after all it is a children’s cartoon, and besides, he always managed to hold a sword pretty well.
Which is all a giant robot assembled from four lion robots needs.
