More about Voltron
Voltron is the king of robots. It is made up of five robotic lions that combine to form a mighty metallic warrior, sworn to defend the universe. Voltron is capable of inflicting colossal blows, making giant leaps, and is armed with lasers, sabers, missiles, and the invincible Blazing Sword!

Fueled by the Power of the Lions, found within the new Voltron Force cadets, Voltron returns more powerful than ever. Key to the mighty robot’s new abilities is the power to reconfigure, allowing each lion to form the head, and arming Voltron with the specific powers of that lion.
