OptimusMagnus is, if you couldn't guess by the Username, a pretty big fan of many portions of the Transformers franchise, but not all of it-there are portions or elements within portions that I can't stand. I am also something of a Voltron fan, though admittedly it's not one of my more involved franchises.
Voltron and Me
My first encounter with Voltron came in the form of Voltron: The Third Dimension; looking back now it was terrible CGI and undoubtedly horrendous plot, but I remember loving it when I watched it. I've seen maybe one episode or so of Voltron: Defender of the Universe, and saw quite a few episodes of Voltron Force, but have to say that I'm not the hugest fan of the latter. I haven't seen anything that isn't Lion Voltron, so I honestly can't say anything about the Voltron Vehicle Force or Voltron Gladiator Force lines. However, so far I am loving Voltron: Legendary Defender and hope it continues to be as enjoyable as I've found it thus far.
- Favorite Voltron: Lion Voltron, though mostly it's because it's pretty much the only version I've seen; Stealth Voltron was an interesting if lackluster variant. I don't know if I can pick out a favorite Lion given their similarities, but green is my favorite color.
- Favorite Voltron Pilot: depends on the series, I guess:
- Defender of the Universe: ...haven't seen enough to know, though I'm intrigued by Sven.
- The Third Dimension: don't remember much, but I imagine Pidge was pretty high up there; the green thing and his nerdiness were big influences.
- Voltron Force: Gonna say Keith; the kids seemed more annoying than anything.
- Legendary Defender: I'm loving Shiro, though honestly the majority of the team is pretty sweet apart from Lance, but he's supposed to be annoying so it works. The fact that
