You can follow the discussion on NEW BOT MONDAY: Super Electromagnetic Machine Voltes V. My most favorite Bot of all. ボルテス are the first Japanese ideograms I ever copied onto paper. Predates Voltron, with which it is confused, by 6 or 7 years. Famously banned by the dictatorial Marcos regime because of revolutionary ideas. Beloved by Filipinos of a certain age. Voltes V is the bot that made me fall in love with bots. Those toys are too highly priced to buy, but this one is a fine interim purchase. without having to leave a comment. Cool, huh?
