While the powers that be get the officially sanctioned Voltron movie up on its robotic feet, a band of committed fans—and a genre-friendly actor—have cooked up Voltron: The End, a requiem for a fallen Lion.
Robert Burden LOVES action figures. He loves them a LOT. "I remember these figures as being magnificent," says the artist. "They represented power, beauty, good and evil, and they captured every aspect of my imagination." Guess that explains why he took 900 hours to paint an amazingly detailed 11-foot-tall portrait of the massive robotic defender of the universe Voltron.
That live-action Voltron movie probably won't hit theaters until 2013—but thankfully some concept art has just been released for those of us who don't want to wait until then to check out the makeovers of the film's famous robots.
