Transforming Voltron Camera from 1985

This badboy was made in 1985. More of a Transformer then a true Voltron, this toy starts out as a mild-mannered SLR camera, but then converts into Voltron: Defender of the Universe! While in camera form the SLR is a fake, but the top part is a working 110 camera. It was made in Macau and sold by Impulse Ltd. of Missouri.

  1. Wow… How did I miss this back in the day?? I was mad about both voltron & transformers back then (I’m still pretty heavily into them, and other mecha stuff).
