I recall having one of these.

I recall having one of these. I liked it because it was similar to the small rubbery Vehicle Voltron. You might have some luck searching for the same thing from LJN. IIRC Irwin is/was the Canadian counterpart to them.

LJN also made a rubber Lion

LJN also made a rubber Lion Force Voltron. Josh reviewed it HERE. This one has a diecast torso with plastic limbs. It was also heavily bootlegged, so if you had one loose, it might not be the same as this. I'm particularly interested in hearing from people who specifically and definitely remember this particular packaging.

I wanna say i've seen it before, perhaps in a White Elephant in Spokane WA like...........23 years ago or so?

We used to vacation there alot and White Elephant had every single toy and hard to find you could wish for, if hindsight was 20/20 i would have bought everything.....cept i was 7 lol.

I deffinatly remember the shot from the back of the card, could be from one of the other Matchbox products. I know i had the ful size Vehicle Voltron and at least 1 of the Voltron 2s.

From Canada and don't recall see'ing anything like it up here.

Can I just say that using

Can I just say that using "Voltron" as a search tool to catch mislabeled items is a little bit of genius? LOL

I get the same thing when I search for one of my favorites, Robby the Robot. To some folks, every robot is "Robby".

I feel like I've seen this

I feel like I've seen this loose before but always thought was a KO.
Was the common gladiator guard ever released on a card like this?
Cool find
