Mattel Official Announcement of Voltron License

We posted about the new Voltron show on Nicktoons and toy license for Mattel a couple of days ago. Here’s the official announcement from With the show launching next year, I’m guessing that we won’t see anything toy-related until Toy Fair next winter, and certainly nothing at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

VoltronMattel and Voltron™ Join Forces

‘Toy Fans,

If you were a kid back in 1984, no doubt you tuned in faithfully each week to watch the original giant robot: Voltron, Defender of the Universe™. This week, World Events Productions (WEP) and Classic Media announced that a new Voltron™ animated series will be airing on Nicktoons, Voltron Force™. And who’s going to develop an all-new line of Voltron toys to go with it? Mattel!

Voltron is one of the most iconic brands ever created, and the new show is going to be an epic action-adventure series that fans old and new alike are gonna love. It’s too early to talk about toy line specifics, but I can tell you our designers are working on some seriously sweet products!

Let’s go Voltron Force!
