Voltron Archive

The cartoon series known as Voltron tells the story of five pilots who are battling to save the planet Arus, and the rest of the universe, from the diabolical King Zarkon. The only thing that stands in Zarkonís way is Voltron, a mighty robot that is composed of five spaceships that look like lions.

Voltron was originally released in Japan under the name GoLion. In 1984 World Events Productions bought the rights to the series from Toei, the Japanese company that created the series. World Events Productions went on to make new season of Voltron episodes that were never released in Japan. They still own the rights to Voltron and re-released a new version of the series in 1997.

In the early 80s a Japanese toy company made a number of die-cast metal Voltron toys. Some of these toys were distributed in America by Matchbox. Not long after this, the rights to make Voltron toys were sold to a toy company called Panosh Place that made a whole new line of Voltron toys. These included a new Voltron, a line of action figures, vehicles, and a castle. Voltron disappeared from the cartoon and toy scene for about a decade. In 1997 it was resurrected, and a whole new line of Voltron toys were released by a company called Trendmasters. In 2000 a version of Voltron I was re-released by a generic toy company. The figure was called 15 in 1 robot.

Some of the pictures on the page are from the great collection of Anthony Lindgren. He had the great fortune of rediscovering toys as an adult. While recuperating in the hospital after a motorcycle accident he saw The Transformers on T.V. and was hooked. It did not take long for him to go to the toy store to pick up his favorite characters. Once he was there, he saw all of the great toys and he set out to buy all of the Transformers stuff he could find. Before long he had amassed an amazing collection. Sadly all was not well. Although he would recover from the motorcycle accident, he contracted H.I.V. from a transfusion. In the early 90s he developed A.I.D.S. After many difficult years, he lost his battle with the disease. His wife wanted to share his love of these toys with you, so she gave us these pictures of his collection.
