Haggar the Witch was released in 1984 as part of the first series of figures in Panosh Place's Voltron: Defender of the Univse collection. Panosh Place - a small toy company based in Cherry Hill, New Jersey - was awarded the license to manufacture a line of Voltron toys for the popular animated series and released a single wave of 12 figures, several vehicles and a Castle of Lions playset. Although a second wave of items was planned and shown in a 1986 Panosh Place catalog, it was canceled prior to production, as Voltron's popularity waned.

Haggar the Witch serves King Zarkon. She uses dark magic to conjure up the spells responsible for the Robeasts that Voltron must fight. Deploying her Robeasts to Arus by space coffins, Haggar hopes to deliver the critical blow that will destroy Voltron, once and for all. Haggar includes a staff accessory that resembles the gold staff held by King Zarkon, in episodes of the Voltron: Defender of the Univese animated series, more closely than the plain wooden staff she frequently uses.

Release Date: 1984
Retail Price: $2.99
Accessories: Staff, Coffin Clip-On Badge (HAGGAR THE WITCH)

Profile: Foul, abominable, dangerously diabolical. Haggar's witchcraft is enormous and so are the powerful Robeasts she builds to defeat Voltron.
