Hmmm....

I'm a little aprehensive about this figure. Are these photos just a test shot? It really looks floppy. I guess i'll wait to see a review and if it's not sold out pcik one up.

Floppy?

This guy is not floppy at all. These were quick shots, and not much care was put in to the pose. Stay tuned!

The Colors are Still Wrong!

After all these delays with this product and the supposed color tuning, the colors are still wrong on this thing:
- Blue helicopter has a red cockpit.
- The horizontal silver stripe on the chest is missing.
- the "cross" on the pelvis shouldn't be a red cross, the vertical stripe should be blue.
- Still on the pelvis, the front should be yellow not silver.
There are so many other paint issues that I will spend a whole day listing them. Seriously, did the MP folks watch all 52 episodes as reference or they just based the paint on old toys/kits?

And what is up with the abdominal section? I now that in the anime and in the Popy toy, the middle ship that makes the abdomen section had rounded corners, but those curves were so subtle that did not make the toy look so floppy.

And finally, MP didn't fix the Electro-Whip, it's still backwards (handle used as tip).

All these waiting and frustrating delays for nothing...

It is most likely a prototype, at least I hope so...

The front wheel on the Red Tank (Left forearm) is gone! ;D Yes, I hope this is just a prototype!

I noticed that Miracle Productions mentioned a release this month of April or maybe the next month of May at the latest. Is that still the case?

Look at the last photo. It hasn't even been released, and already they've lost the chest airplane!

You saw it here first folks

Some Vehicle Voltrons to ship without heads, but if you're really unlucky, all you get is a pair of legs.

I noticed something strange...

All the comments Dave Oaks (Toyfreakz.com) had on the Miracle Productions Facebook page regarding this Vehicle Voltron are GONE! Same thing with the MP Vehicle Voltron comments in the Toyfreakz.com's facebook page. I hate to quote Han Solo but "I have a bad feeling about this..."

Lets just say perhaps the licensing situation wasn't as settled as we thought it was. I'm sure we'll have more official info soon.
