This, this... thing just

This, this... thing just screams for death.
But, hey, the Ultramens were a nice addition, right.... right?

I must say, I'm always jelly when people find bootlegs like this; I never seem to find any good ones, though in actuality I should consider myself lucky for that exact reason.

Loving Voltron month :D

OMG this is the cookiest Voltron figure I've ever seen !! I was really excited when you guys mentioned the folks at Bandai seemed optimistic about the possibility of them making an SOC Go Lion ! I can't tell you how much i would kill for something like that to become a reality *Insert image of Fry yelling SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY BANDAI"

I can't put in words how much I love the tiptoeing lions.

Geez Us! It's very difficult

Geez Us!

It's very difficult to apply stickers to a toy when you have a gun pointed to your head.

You must have committed a horrible crime to be assigned to the factory that makes this.

Ultraman sentai!?!

this glorious monstrosity of a toy aside, I would figuratively KILL for a sentai styled Ultraman show... especially if the Ultra Pilots stayed Ultra-sized so the resulting UtraRobo would be massively moon-sized

Those Koreans seemed to have

Those Koreans seemed to have a knack of combining unrelated fiction into one another.

I remember there is one Korean rip-off of Ninja Turtles and they were five (yes, five) and they have a giant robot too.

Now it's Ultraman pilots into a Go-Junkion.

I was trying to think of something to say about this but I can't. It hurts to look at yet the review was very enjoyable. My thoughts exactly about the whole a Voltron III fanatic, at the time these came out, I actually turned down the offer to receive this as a gift... I got a red lion and said NO MORE, thanks

I agree. Even as a child I knew this version of Voltron was poorly designed. I passed on it as well. This bootleg version looks absolutely rediculous. I do like the gold chrome and the ultramen though. A very entertaining review. Thanks for suffering through that one for us Josh.

I have, or rather, had, this figure

I got this at one of those stores full of bootlegs when I was a kid and Cartoon Network started airing it again. I asked for it because I couldn't find any other Voltron toys anywhere, this was around 97 or so. Funniest thing is that the shopkeeper even warned me against buying it. He was in pieces after a few days, but I still have the little Ultramen and the sword, which is actually pretty decent.

This guy is freaky! I personally like the Panosh Place Voltron, it was my favorite toy as a kid. Never had the diecast "good" versions of Voltron, but now I don't really care to hunt them down. I do remember my cousins stole the Black Lion though and it bothered me so much. The stealing part, but also that they were so dumb to just take one lion because then they couldn't form Voltron. I actually would have preferred they take the whole thing. It's probably that mildly traumatic childhood event that makes me so strongly attached to the big, doofy-looking Panosh Place Voltron.

As much as we all hate this toy, I am sure this toy means a lot to kids in under-privledge countries/areas...

hate chinese products for its garbage quality, praise chinese product for its availability and affordability....
