Voltron: Defender of the Universe picture

Trivia: The company that adapted "King of Beasts Go-lion" (Lion Force) and "Dairugger" (Vehicle Force) into "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" also wanted to dub another anime robot series called "Lightning God Albegas," but for some mysterious reason it never did.

Interesting enough, toys based on Albegas were sold under the Voltron name.
