fancy dress balls

"I didn’t feel like looking around for those balls, and frankly it’s the weakest gimmick on the toy."

Well, I'm disappointed! I expected you to review EVERY gimmick on the toy.

But I guess... you didn't have the balls.

yeaaaaaahhhhhhhhh

I Strongly Disagree

"It certainly looks better than Mattel’s large combining Voltron."

No, it does not. That Trendmaster's monstrosity should have never being conceived.

Pretty Fugly

Yeah that is pretty fugly. I will say it has wayyyy more play-value with it's gimmicks and original price-point but it is not better looking than the Matty Collector one, not by a long shot.

The concept was cool but...

The concept was cool but the final product is hideous! The only good things that particular Trendmaster's Voltron has over the recent Mattel giant combiner Voltron are the LED eyes and lack of spring loaded legs. Gosh, it is sooooo UGLY!

First of all, good

First of all, good review.

However I have to agree with the others. This toy has some terrible proportions. Yes, it does a lot, and Yes, there is a lot of play value, but it just looks wrong. Price is good, and I like the firing fists, the chrome limbs, and the way the cockpits are handled. If only you can take the GOOD of this product and add it to the MattyCollector Voltron. Imagine if that had the details from this, but the proper proportions. That would be insane.

Maybe I'm weird, I like the proportions, it screams "TOY!!!" to me.

I agree that this is a toy

I agree that this is a toy with good ideas, but it's ugly. In separated form the black lion is just plain wrong, and then in combined form that little face looks like a kid wearing his dad's clothes. Combined proportions sort of look like Srungle, but in color. Saying this looks better than the Mattel version is some BIG wishful thinking.

Maybe it was a bit much to say that the Mattel one doesn't look as good although the quality control on this toy is lightyears ahead.

While there are a few proportion issues, I'm not seeing the ugliness on this toy but that's me.
