Privateer Press has released the details concerning its Voltron: Defender of the Universe Battle Miniatures Game, which is due to be released in July.  Voltron is a stand-alone strategy board game set in the Monsterpocalypse Universe where players take control of the mighty Voltron, Defender of the Universe, or Lo-Tron of the fiendish Drule Empire and each monster’s forces as they battle across one of the two interactive space maps. Players launch searing energy blasts, smash the opponent into rogue asteroids, and form a blazing sword as they reenact their favorite scenes from the Voltron cartoon series.

The Voltron: Defender of the Universe Game (MSRP $49.99) contains everything that two players need to create their own galactic battles including 22 pre-painted plastic figures, 1 double-sided play mat, 24 specialty dice, 4 status counters, and one full-color rulebook.

Privateer Press has also created a Voltron: Defender of the Universe Battle Miniatures Game Launch Kit (MSRP $399.92) for brick-and-mortar retailers only. The kit contains eight Voltron games plus two limited edition Mega Voltron Figures, which are just what a retailer needs to jumpstart an organized play program.
