Voltron Force ad by Neil D 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 D 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.”

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.
