Archive: Robeast Mutilor - Commands the Coffin of Darkness

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Robeast Mutilor 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.

A creation of the evil witch Haggar, Robeast Mutilor is deployed to Planet Arus, in the Coffin of Darkness, to battle Voltron. If you don't recognize Robeast Mutilor from any episodes of the Voltron: Defender of the Universe animated series, it's with good reason. Both Robeast Mutilor (and Robeast Scorpious) are more amalgamations of several Robeasts than actual on-screen characters; they never appeared in any episodes of the animated series.
