    I used to love that cartoon when I was 6-7yrs old. I was just watching my nephew for a bit and he was watching Youtube videos of Voltron. I'd completely forgotten about that cartoon, as its been YEARS since I've saw it.

    Blazing sword?:supergrin:

    He would take a beating for 5 minutes, just to haul-out the blazing sword and end the fight...

    I don't remember Voltron; I was too old. I do remember Gigantor, who could kick Voltron's *** anyday. :supergrin:

    Because both my parents worked, I'd spend the afternoon at another kid's house from my school. We were a bit too old at that point to be into Voltron but his little brother loved it. There was some episode where the team was taking a break, and diving off of one of the lion robots into a lake. The princess shows up in a pink bikini, and dives in and loses her top.

    The kid's mom happens to be passing by and seeing that loses it, and bans Voltron from the TV. :rofl:

    nobody can kick voltrons ***. they would do the 5 minute coming together seen, get hit fall apart get back together for another 5 mins the sword comes out and in one slice the ro beast would blow up. that sword was like a nuclear holocaust, 10mm, and herpes rolled into one. something bad was gonna happen when it came out.

    At the time of Voltron, animee was at full swing in Mexico, so I would watch "Mazzinger Z" (Voltron's japanese version).:tongueout:

    Wasn't the cars a gay interpretation of Voltron by the Transformers?

    Regardless, he was watching the Lions... the real Voltron. :). Hard to believe that only had 1 season, as it aired in re-runs forever. I was a bit surprised he was watching it. The entire first season is on Youtube apparently.

    No, it was actually Voltron. The series was roughly like Robotech, where they took multiple different anime series and branded them as the same thing in the U.S. (Three for Robotech, two for Voltron), but in the Voltron case I think there was a bigger barrier (two voltrons, wtf???) whereas the three series that were converted to Robotech could be made to look like a chronology.

    I once read a joke somewhere that went something like 'I don't know if MMGW is true or not, but it seems that our current culture of fifteen cars each isn't sustainable - five robotic lions ought to be enough for anybody' ;)

    Yep! This too! WAVE MOTION GUN BABY!:supergrin:

    This is another show where the good guys would take a beating for 5 minutes. Then they'd fire-up that wave-motion gun and it was all over.

    Wildstar was the hero. Yammatto was the ship.
