Voltron Force ad by Neil B Vokes

I discovered some great info today on this excellent and colourful 1986 UK advert for Voltron Force. After posting it on Twitter I  was contacted by the artist Neil B Vokes, who told me,

“I drew this ad (with Rich Rankin) while doing the pencils on Comico’s Robotech Masters series – was paid a pretty penny for it too…;o)”

Wow, that’s so cool to hear from one of the actual artists involved in the toy advertising process, and it’s made my day. Here’s the ad.


UK. Hex. 1986.
