Stealth Voltron

my college roommate designed this

My college roommate, Bil, joined Trendmasters so he could work on the Godzilla toys. He also got to work on Battle Planets and then he got to design this future Voltron. I was always jealous because I like to draw robots so much and of course Voltron is too damn cool.

Well if you see him again,

Well if you see him again, shake his hand for me, for whatever he did for that Battle Planets line! I've only ever see pictures of it, but it became an instant favorite and I really wana track down a bunch of sets. I miss the days of miniature "world" sets like that.

Tell him THANK YOU. War

Tell him THANK YOU.

War Planets were Dope! I loved that line. Such a great micro playset line, I rank it right up there with Mighty Max. Trendmasters also did a great job with their Godzilla Micro playsets. Those were such a thing of the 90's. I sure do miss them.

I have a Casper the friendly Ghost playset they made. I should review it. It's amazing how much stuff they crammed into it.

So non threating, i just want to pet them!

Very unusual set, I barely remember the series I was in College at the time.

Didn't even know they made a set, very cool in that unusual sort of way!

Stealth V

I've heard about Stealth Voltron before, but this is the first time I've actually seen what it looks like. (Given that it's Stealth Voltron I suppose this is only appropriate.)
I don't quite have as high an opinion on the design as you do, Josh.

I think this one looked more like super sentai than super robot.

I really like the stealth

I really like the stealth lions, but the head in Voltron mode just kills any interest for me.

I'm glad you said it

That head is seriously rough. It doesn't look too off from the front, but MAN this guy is problematic when you see it in those profile shots. The lack of any depth makes it look like he has a Guess Who tile for a head.

Agree about the individual lions though, the designs are neat.

Interesting figure. He is

Interesting figure. He is also growing on me. I like the idea of doing more with trendmasters. They really did jump in and make a lot of toys figures. I only wish I was paying attention at the time, I still need a stealth and vortex voltron.
