So we all know the Voltron story by now, yes? The show was originally a Japanese cartoon known as Beast King GoLion! It got dubbed into English, the episodes were all jumbled up, new story-lines were written, and the series was released in the west as a way to sell action figures.

That’s how most cartoons were put together in the '80s; quick, cheap, and bearing little semblance to their overseas source material. Early morning TV was flooded with these Japanese imports and, if you’re of a certain vintage, you’ll remember Robotech, M.A.S.K., Ulysses 31, Battle of the Planets, etc. While most of these are long forgotten, Voltron keeps on keeping on.

Almost 25 years since the show first aired on local television, Voltron merchandise continues to roll out. The latest and greatest is USB stick Voltron – or, if you prefer, Beast King GoLion! While the 2G storage space isn’t going to blow anyone’s mind, the 3.5” PVC figure looks pretty cool, lights up in a rather satisfying way and comes preloaded with a full episode of the classic series.

Mind you, if you’re after the Rolls Royce of Voltron merchandise you’ll want the transforming camera. Released back in 1985, it’s fully functioning, fully transforming, and fully sick rather neat. Also, it costs a lot of money. Maybe start with USB Voltron first.

PS. There were three seasons of Voltron in total. Season two and three were stolen from entirely different Japanese shows and Voltron was totes different. 

You can buy the Voltron USB direct from incubot.com.

Pretty sure that's Optimus Prime doing the voiceover for Voltron.
