Details released are copy and pasted below. Be sure to read ALL the small print!!! You are commiting to spend over $300 to complete Voltron. You can read it all below and at Matty Collector.
- Subscriptions Available 7/22/11 2 p.m. PT through 8/5/11 2 p.m. PT.
- Club-exclusive for 2012 is Sven, the original pilot of Blue Lion.
- 1 Lion will be released every 2 to 3 months and each will come with a 3 3/4 scale Pilot

- Each Lion/figure set comes with a piece of a light-up Build and Collect Blazing Sword!
Based on Voltron®, the fanboy-favorite 1980s series, Club Lion Force mega-thrusts into the Matty atmosphere for the first time ever! For 2012, the Mattel Voltron line includes five Lions (black, green, yellow, blue, red) that form robot Voltron plus five Pilots in 3 ¾" scale (Pidge, Hunk, Lance, Allura, Keith). Collect all five Lions and you'll have everything you need to build an enormous 23" tall Voltron figure. Collect all the Pilots and each one will come with a piece that creates a Voltron Collect and Connect™ light-up sword!
How Club Lion Force Works
- When you buy a membership to 2012 Club Lion Force, you’re guaranteed to get all the official club figures released during the year – a total of 5 pilot figures in 3 ¾" scale and 5 Lion figures. That means you'll own all 5 lions needed to build the colossal 23" Voltron robot and all 5 pilots needed to complete the Voltron Collect and Connect™ light-up sword.
- You’ll also receive the club-exclusive for 2012, Sven, the original pilot of the Blue Lion!
- Approximately every 2-3 months in 2012 (starting in early 2012), you’re automatically shipped a Lion figure and its corresponding Pilot Figure. Figures are not billed until they are shipped.
- Figures begin shipping approximately two (2) business days prior to the official on-sale date. Along with guaranteed figures and the club-exclusive, this is one of our members’ favorite benefits because they usually start getting their figures sooner than non-members!
- Exact figures are announced approximately one to two months before each on-sale date.
- The special club-exclusive figure will be shipped sometime around summer 2012. The figure is included in the cost of the membership ($15), however applicable shipping and taxes/fees will be charged at the time of shipment.
- Please note that special convention items, reissues and other accessories are not included. Mattel reserves the right to offer those and any other Voltron® items. Subscriptions will not include any additional items beyond those listed here.
- All figures EXCEPT the club-exclusive figure will also be available at MattyCollector.com around the 15th of the on-sale month without the membership. You will have the option to buy additional figures, but availability isn’t guaranteed and the purchase limit is ten (10) per person.
- The only way to purchase the club-exclusive figure through Mattel is to buy a membership to Club Lion Force! This item will not be sold separately on MattyCollector.com.
- For 2012, subscriptions are available for DC Universe,Ghostbusters™, Masters of the Universe Classics andVoltron®. You may buy as many subscriptions of any kind and in any combination you like and they'll all ship together when purchased in the same transaction!
