  • Do you have any TMNT figures to pit Dio against? Because this is the transforming Mouser toy I never knew I wanted until now.

  • That seems surprisingly well matched to the Stormtrooper.

    I just wanted to point out that the black lion's legs can spread apart as well. Actually, using that joint is how I unpeg the shoulders when I want to take Voltron apart (the amount of force required to get those shoulder locks all the way in is ridiculous).

  • This figure is very good visually, and while the schoolgirl look is a bit much for me, I am planning in giving this line a try with the upcoming police girl figure.

    There's some great detail work, but as a whole it just has a lot of odd proportions. The arms look way too small and skinny for the rest of the body, and I just can't get down with the synthetic human skull laziness. It's a shame because the accessories probably would have looks killer on a better base frame.

    I kind of hate it.

    Nice review, interesting design. It'd be a different take, but being synthetic would be a new spin on the injuries that muted him and caused him to don the mask.

    Just a tad. Nothing a spot of polish won't fix.

    There's a good chance they currently have the Dairuger XV/Vehicle Voltron license should they choose to use it. They picked up the Voltron License when Mattel's license ended. We know Mattel technically had the VV license as that's what blocked Miracle Metals from getting one after they finally completed their overly delayed design work. By the time they were ready to proceed Mattel had come along and purchased the licensing.

    I'm hoping that Bandai would be able to secure the rights to make an SoC Vehicle Voltron. I think that Voltron needs more appreciation since I always liked the Matchbox version as a kid and would love to see a modern representation of it.

    As near as I can tell the reason why the different lions have different connection types is an absurd level of detail attention, in the show the two right-side lions (red and blue) have circular holes at their shoulder joints, while the two left side lions (green and yellow) have slots. The difference is reflected here correctly for I think the first time ever, I'd certainly never noticed it before. It also means you can attach the weapons to the lions without memorizing or referencing which ones go to which, as they will only mount on the lion they belong to, which is a nice touch for play.

    I hope those universal figure stands work with The Black Series from Star Wars

    Great review!

    I only have two gripges, the shoulder tabs & black lion's tail. The shoulder tabs don't lock in as tightly as I'd like, at least on mine. And I wish they'd implemented a way to either hide black lion's tail or fold it out of the way ala KoB. But at least it's easy to remove, which frees up waist articulation. With the removable heads, everyone's excited because this is the first Voltron toy that can do the complete lion head attack. The classic could only fire the heads off the arms, which is the same route KoB took. With the weapons, it's animation-accurate. In the case of red-lion, they did separate pieces of plastic so the weapons won't cause chrome wear.

    And on the lion legs, another review made a good point. Though hiding the legs would be animation-accurate and feasible, it may be that they didn't do away with them for a better design in the first place, but rather to streamline the model so the animators would have an easier time drawing the combined form. Either way works for me though.

    This toy is fantastic, and easily the best Voltron toy ever made. They got all the proportions and articulation right. He's not a gymnast, but he can do everything I'd expect and have seen Voltron do. Now, it's time for the waiting game with the Megazord, and any news on whether they'll tackle the vehicle force in the near future.

    I bought the bootleg version released a couple of years ago, that got a great review over the toynami re release at same time...anyone remeber that version link?
    Nevertheless, wonderful review and the movement of pictures for combining created great sense of how to combine it.

    Nice review. You might want to play with your black lion/Voltron head a little more. When it's fully transformed the base of the neck should sit flush with the shoulders. It should not look like the neck is going down into a hole. Once you get it extended up you find you also have much more head articulation as he has a bit more look up/look down movement.

    Arm articulation isn't that bad. It looks like you discovered the red and green lion waist expansion joints. You can get quite a bit more cross chest range by unlocking those shoulder tabs. They don't just prevent the shoulders from rotating. They also lock in the shoulders forward pivot. Unlocking them lets the shoulders flex forward, much like the Toynami Masterpiece. Just be warned, if you will be playing with the shoulders unlocked, take the red and green lions tails off. They can get pinched by the shoulder flex and come off inside.

    I'm pretty much of the same mind. Whatever its (very minor) flaws, this is the best Voltron there's ever been.

    I took a look at mine for my new YouTube review series, Silent InvenTOYry.

    I don't have many g1 figures really but I do have blurr, double cross, and kup so I will definitely be getting those two! And yeah, I totally agree, Titans Return is great!

    That being said, I'm sorry it bothers you so much that you felt compelled to make an account just to say that! Maybe I'll work on it in the future if there are more people on the site who feel that way!

    Thanks for the input, but I don't know, I've been a little conflicted on what background my pictures should have. I decided on this desk because, I feel that it keeps them dynamic and engaging. So many pictures on this site stick with a white back drop, and while that has it's place, my pictures like that never really satisfied me. I like my pictures better now due to their (what I think is) dynamic and involved nature. I just feel like the desk shows what I'm doing, gives you insight into what my photo area or whatever is like, and helps them stand out among other reviewers' images.
    Kind of like optimal III's pictures!

  • Yeah, I forgot to mention that. The waist isn't terrible, but the ridge in conjunction with black lion's tail is a significant hindrance. KoB & SOC did it best, and in different ways to boot.

  • Sadly the ball jointed hips are what I categorize as a critical flaw at the MSRP price point. No way an 18" plastic robot will last the years with 5" plastic action figure type hips.
