This is only a suggestion but once you get the Black Lion and review it, you should immediately sell the lions and track down the18in COMBINING Voltron that Trendmasters did in the late 90's.

Hideous

That thing is hideous, I'd never spend money on that.

Really? It has chromed parts, firing weapons, light up eyes (all five lions) and a Blazing sword that's can almost double as a child sized roleplay toy.

Price versus Value

The biggest error is the price. As glaring as the QC problems are, I think they could be overlooked if it just wasn't $55.

Does the yellow lion also have such a noticeable seem in the cockpit?

Yes

Yes but not as bad or obviously ill-fitted. Yellow Lion has uneven and thin paint apps. As I write this I can see the light going through the back of the lion and through the seat.

I do agree if this was half the price I might be more forgiving. Remember to include the shipping charge in the cost and it's $70 bucks.

In addition to believing that the QC errors would be more forgivable if the toy was less than $55, I also believe that the QC errors would be more forgivable if the toy was less than $70.

The whole line is lame on an aesthetic level anyway. People will be dumping these within the year.

Some things Testors can't fix!

Wow. Just... wow. I know Hasbro has a certain lack for QC, but this takes the Lion's share of the cake.
I remember my last TFCC figure's paint job was a little lacking, but I could at least fix it with some Testors, but this is a job for a complete overhaul for the mold.

Wow! Prince Allura's head

Wow! Prince Allura's head looks so soft, almost as if Mattel sculpted it out of Play-doh.

All I want from a Voltron toy:

Two things;
1) Relatively affordable.
2) Not sh!t.

I would maybe settle for one of these things. Point is, I don't own a Voltron and I'd like to :s

It's not that bad.... Yet

These lions are not THAT bad, yet. I don't HATE them.
I've been super lucky with paint apps and sturdy construction. I will hate them if the Black lion comes, is plugged into the rest of the lions and falls apart...

Looking at the gravity-based rectal recepticle "engineering" of the yellow and blue lions, I may have an interesting video to post come early November. I live in a condo with a balcony...
