Well, to be perfectly honest, original Voltron (or GoLion if you prefer) was cool, but the show overall was terrible.   But being spliced between two shows and edited to death in made it into somewhat of an incomprehensible mess.  Though you are right, the vehicle team was completely worthless.
I think it was only became "spliced between two show ' when thay ran out of GoLoin episodes and made Vehicle Voltron. Also, some of the edits were for the better, such as "Sven gets killed and replaced with is identical twin brother" to "Sven gets severely injured had has to spend some time in the hospital"

Giant robot knight-suits piloted by bishi swordsmen. Planet-to-planet schoolgirl transport. Catgirls. Escaflowne was strange.

Well, you know what they say. Women are like Voltron; the more you hook up, the better it gets!

Haven't run a full on mech game in a while.  The last one I did was years ago with Mekton Zeta.  But the Manga and Mecha book for M&MS is pretty decent from what I've seen.

The Manga and Mecha book is nice for a number of reasons, not just its mecha. If you can stomach M&M combat, then go for it.

I remember Palladium Games made a Robotech RPG supplement that I owned but never got to use. In fact, I don't think any of my Rifts games made it to the point of using giant robots. Which amazes me, considering half the game is about giant robots.

You guys should play Rifts. I dare you. Just make sure Kevin Siembieda doesn't get your money and it'll be okay.

Just saw Iron Giant today. It finally gave me the full idea of how Monsters is supposed to play. Also the giant is voiced by Vin Diesel, which makes it awesome.

My favorite mech is the Rainbow Jerk.  Look it up.

I just got Jovian Chronicles in the mail, which has, among other things, martian cowboys fighting martian nazis with giant robots.
