- Weapon: Indepentently Targetable Particle Beam Cannons
people voting for MMPR are 90's babies without the same nostalgia and sense of AWESOME that the older generation has.
Looking at ONLY statistics and trying to throw all of my own personal nostalgia aside, I would say:
In a person vs. person fight, it would be a close fight but I would have to give the edge to the MMPR...they were teenages granted improved strength, agility and fighting ability by their connection to Zordon. Although the Space Explorers (as they were known before being dubbed the "Voltron Force") were a specially trained combat unit, magic enhancement would trump.
However, in a robot vs. robot fight, Voltron has the clear edge. The individual Zords were never shown to have any individual fighting ability, indeed were only shown on screen for at most 60 seconds and then only as a precursor to forming the MegaZord. The lions, however, each had a full weapons compliment with flame-breath, missiles, mouth-blades, etc...and often spent alot of time ripping stuff up BEFORE needing to form Voltron.
The guys posting a "Toy versus Toy" comparison...asking about materials and comparative sizes, etc...clearly Voltron has the edge here too. The MMPR toys were made in the classic "90's cheap" mode...out of light plastic and cheap molds. Voltron, as we all remember, was diecast metal and weighed like 20 pounds when you put him together. If you assembled both robots and held them apart one in each hand and rammed them together, Megazord would shatter into a bazillion pieces and Voltron would'nt suffer a scratch.
