voltron new tv show and toys

I'm gonna need a bigger toy shelf.

The producers of Voltron have scrapped plans for a big screen spinoff and are developing a TV reboot and a new toyline instead.

The new Voltron: Defender of the Universe animated series will debut on Nicktoons next year, just in time for the franchise's 25th anniversary. The cable net has given the new show a 26-episode order, reports Variety.

Mattel will also celebrate Voltron's anniversary next year with new toys based on the classic cartoon series as well as the new show, which, of course, is billed as an "edgier" version of the '80s sci-fi 'toon.
