EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
Voltron was summoned for the first time in the 80's with the Voltron: Defender of the Universe series, but now it seems the Galra are at it again. Fight evil just like the mighty robot warrior Voltron with the Voltron Legendary Defender Electronic Transforming Sword. In the Netflix series Voltron Legendary Defender, five heroes master the power of the Voltron Lions to save the galaxy from the Galra empire. And now, kids can help restore peace in their own galactic adventures with this roleplay sword. It goes from saber to cutlass by just sliding the lever forward. When it transforms, you'll hear sound effects. The sword is also motion-activated, so as you swing it around in your pretend battles, you'll hear even more sounds. In addition, pressing the button on the handle of the sword will play a few more sounds as well as phrases from the show, such as “Let's do it! Team, form sword!” and “Let's cut the Galra down to size!” In total, there are 15 phrases and sounds.
Is It Fun?
Fans of the Netflix TV show will have fun swinging around this toy sword and going on their own galactic adventures to defeat the Galra. They'll also like playing out favorite scenes from the show with this sword just like Voltron. The transforming feature is very easy to do, and basically gives kids a two-in-one roleplay toy. Whether they are using it as a saber or wielding it as a cutlass, this toy will keep Voltron fans engaged in lots of imaginative play. And for kids who want to dress up as Voltron for Halloween, this would make a fun accessory to carry around when trick-or-treating.
Who It’s For
The Voltron Legendary Defender Electronic Transforming Sword is for ages 4 and up. Fans of the Netflix series will like having their very own weapon accessory just like the heroic space pilots in the TV show. Kids who like engaging in imaginative roleplay will have a lot of fun recreating favorite scenes from the show or making up their own adventures with this roleplay toy. It would also make a fun Halloween costume accessory for kids who want to dress up as Voltron. Parents who grew up watching the original Voltron: Defender of the Universe show in the 80's will appreciate being able to tell their kids about Voltron and learn new things about the new Netflix series from them.
What To Be Aware Of
The sword comes with two AAA batteries for the in-store try-me features, and we recommend replacing them before you play for best results.
