Nicktoons adds teams to Voltron Force

Nicktoons adds teams to Voltron Force

Voltron already has the 25 years of history. The 5 (count’em, five!) robot lions. Classic Media, World Events Productions, and Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons. What else does the famed Defender of the Universe need to add notches to his franchise belt? How about t-shirts and swimwear, courtesy of the Bentex Group. Or maybe Halloween costumes from Rubie’s Costume Company. Graphic novels and manga twists from VIZ Media. Comic books from Dynamic Forces. These companies, when formed with THQ’s video games and Mattel’s action figure toys, are helping to bring Voltron Force to a whole new level of butt kicking legend.

World Events Productions, Classic Media, and THQ are merging together to form something powerful. Sure, it’s not as cool (or as visually amazing!) as when the 5 individual robot lions merge to form Voltron, but the megacompanies are certainly holding their own when it comes to Voltron Force! Recently, they’ve come together to create video games basic on the classic Voltron: Defender of the Universe series as well as Nickelodeon’s new CG Voltron Force, set to debut on Nicktoons in another few weeks. Just as Mattel begins to release the new Voltron toys, The Voltron video games are anticipated to debut this fall, following the premiere of Voltron Force series. Read on for the full press release

Just as the property celebrates its 25th anniversary, it looks like Voltron could be making a comeback. World Events Productions and Classic Media have teamed up to unveil a relaunch to the iconic 80s toon, with both a new television show and toy line. It looks like Voltron’s recent move to YouTube has helped bring about new interest! The new series, Voltron Force, (formerly Voltron Panthera Force) will be making its way to Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons sometime next year, being produced by WEP, Classic Media, and Kickstart Productions. Mattel has also signed on as the master toy licensee, developing a new line of toys they claim will appeal to fans of every Voltron incarnation; old and new.
