This is a Korean version of the ST Popy / Matchbox Voltron 3 (aka golion). It is a 1:1 scale replica of the original toy, but is made entirely out of plastic. It is interesting to note that they decided to use the US name, "Voltron", instead of the Japanese "Golion" name. You would have thought they would have gone with Golion, seeing how close Korea is to Japan.
What makes this toy unique is the additional weapons and shield. The 4-headed lion shield is an original Korean design, not found on any other version. The waist guns are original as well.
Voltron comes packed in a nice styrofoam tray, inside of a window box. It also includes with a set of trading cards.
This is one of the higher quality Korean bootleg robots I have come across. The pieces are molded nicely, the paint is good, and there are minimal sprue marks.
