From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend, the legend of Voltron, Defender of the Universe! This iconic robot is the titular mecha of the hit 80’s cartoon which spanned a variety of sequels and spin-offs. The original series itself is an adaptation of Toei Animation’s two anime series, Beast King GoLion and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV; with the main Voltron, Lion Force, obviously based on GoLion.
Now, thankfully since Toei and Bandai are in a wonderful working relationship it led to Voltron joining the Tamashii Nations/ Bandai Spirits Soul of Chogokin line. For those unaware, Soul of Chogokin is a highly detailed, articulated, and complex collector’s items that attempts to recreate mecha from popular programs as they are seen on screen. In this case, Soul of Chogokin Gx-71 Lion Force Voltron/ Beast King GoLion is recreated perfectly from the individual lions, combined form, various accessories and more! So, this review will be an in-depth look at this impressive and expensive item, as well as do it all in under an hour.
