For those of you who do not know what VOLTRON is, it was a cartoon (a cartoon my parents grew up with and loved) about a team of 5 space defenders that rode around in mechanical lions but then the lions combined to make VOLTRON the awesome evil fighting robot. I actually have a VOLTRON toy. :) This book explains the awesomeness of VOLTRON well and would be pretty interesting for anyone interested in anime. This amazing collection of all things Voltron – TV shows, the beginning, toys, comics, etc. The book is in 2 parts – the first one about Voltron’s behind the scenes creation, and the toys, and the second part about the TV Show history of Voltron (what goes on in the TV Show). I believe that any fan of Voltron really needs to get the book. It is attractively bound and would make a great collectible. There is even a bonus comic at the end of the book! *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
