31 Days of Halloween - VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER Pumpkin Stencils!

Written by

There isn't much that's mightier than five robotic lions that come together to form an even bigger robot. That said, VOLTRON is timeless, and VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER is bringing that goodness to Netflix with a second season kicking off this coming January. I've been championing the series since getting an early preview on a visit to DreamWorks Animation back in May, ans something that came up during that visit is that I once was VOLTRON... for Halloween back in 1985. ""You were like a cross between KUNG FU PANDA and VOLTRON!" declared actor Tyler Labine as he and castmate Josh Keaton checked out a picture from the archives of my homemade costume. Funny enough, here we are 31 years past the night when I hit the streets ready to fight off evildoers with my blazing sword, and VOLTRON is big again... and now you can get some FREE Printable VOLTRON Pumpkin Stencils to deck out your mighty gourd as your favorite member of the team.

Now, what I'd like to see is someone put the additional effort into combining five pumpkins into a full-on pumpkin VOLTRON. Can it be done? See a full gallery of VOLTRON pumpkin carvings on the official site.
