It's nice to see you review

It's nice to see you review a vintage piece, especially of one of your favorite chogokins. I love seeing these toys in their original configuration. Thanks

Very cool. Even now, I didn't realize the original was so different from the Matchbox version. I also really like that the name and number of the toy seem to be printed on the sticker closing the lid!

price

This was originally 1850 yen?
I wish I could find spring loaded diecast so cheaply now!

Great review of a classic!

Great review of a classic! I'm jealous of that box... I've got the styro, but no cardboard.

Weren't the Matchbox

Weren't the Matchbox versions recalled for lead paint poisoning?

Only the Lion Voltron version got recalled for lead poisoning, Not Vehicle Voltron.

Now when is Bandai going to make a SOC version of this guy? It would be amazing.

As much as I dislike SoCs, I

As much as I dislike SoCs, I have to admit, I'd be hard-pressed not to pick up an SoC Dairugger. My Voltron I love trumps all. I adore my Matchbox DX combiner, but the thought of a combining, diecast, poseable Voltron I tickles a part of my brain that doesn't get much titillation.

I was busting on JoshB just yesterday: this review inspired me to pick up a mint GB-73! I had been "satisfied" with my Matchbox one for a while...it's time to upgrade, though.
