Kodykoala’s Voltron Yoshi Force

Voltron Yoshi Force

From days of long ago, From unchartered regions of the universe, comes a legend. The legend of Voltron, Defender of the Universe! A mighty robot, loved by good, feared by evil. [Voltron theme]

Voltron has always been a favorite of mine. Since I was a kid, I loved how the lions turned into Voltron and it worked so well. I wanted to re-imagine the lions into something from the Mario Universe, so I turned them into Yoshis. I tried to stay true to the colors as much as possible, and the result is this!

I used a Cletus Football robot (Version 1), 5 vinyl Yoshis, and spare parts I had left over from other projects to complete this. Total completion time was about 30 hours, and I had to do a lot of custom paint mixing, but it was well worth it in the end. Please go to My Flickr Page to see this guy in all his glory!
