Not sure how many die-hard Voltron fans there are here, but in case you're interested, there was a video game based on the original Lion Voltron (featured in this site's title banner, even).

Unfortunately, the game isn't particularly good, but if you're dying for a little nostalgia, it does have a few nice touches. The best feature of the game is the intro and pause screens, which have voiceovers from none other than Peter Cullen, the original narrator of the show (and Optimus Prime!). There are also clips from the show itself, including the intro.

The game is available via digital download on either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 consoles, and costs $10.

Wow- a Voltron video game? And it supports multi-player? Looks pretty cool to me. Very Happy
I can't say I'm a huge fan of Voltron or anything necessarily (I probably would like it pretty well- just never really grew up watching it as a kid) -but yeah, this game looks pretty sweet. And always good to have Peter Cullen involved with voicing his classic characters.
