Archive: Skull Scavenger - Commands the Skull Tank

Thursday, February 2, 2012

The Skull Scavenger 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.

The Skull Scavenger is a soldier in King Zarkon's army. Though designated as the driver of the Skull Tank, the Skull Scavenger's appearance is similar to both the Drule foot-soldiers and their robotic look-a-likes, who also fight for Zarkon. When the Voltron: Defender of the Universe animated series was imported from Japan, there were a number of scenes involving the killing of Drules and Robeasts that producers knew would need to be re-imagined to get past U.S. child safety censors. By classifying these characters as robots--and even editing and re-animating some scenes--producers were able to get around the censors, though it made distinguishing a Drule from their robot doppelgangers a bit difficult, at times.
