I'm really disappointed that

I'm really disappointed that we haven't seen any new toys from the new series since the initial sculptures....

either their spokesperson

either their spokesperson isnt a Voltron fan or Mattel isn't happy with this license. He kept his answers short and business like. It seems they went over their heads with this as if someone on the inside was a big enough fan to get them to do all this and now they regret it and are just waiting to sell what they produce and then sit on the license. No Vehicle Voltron and no news on toys from the new Voltron series.. Knowing that Bandai is gung-ho about wanting to make a Dairugger and Golion SOC (and cant due to Mattel having the license, makes me a bit unhappy if Mattel doesnt continue cranking out Voltron stuff while they have the license

bath toys

"For the size, each lion looks very simple. The details are soft, and sort of remind me of bath toys."

That's just about how I felt when I saw the display at New York Comic-Con last year. I wouldn't have thought of the bath toy comparison, but I was really not impressed with the visual design of the toy.

Pointing Fingers!

What's up with the guy pointing the finger at the other guy in the background of picture 1?

We should come up with dialog for that conversation

I still have high hopes

I Still have some faith in this line, the gimmik is intressve but i dont think iw willl be as bad every one is saying it is, from what i have seen the "auto-transform" is only relising the leg that are locked in place. With that in mind i don not belibe it force them to be bricks looking a boxes you see the posiblity is there, not as much as the Toymoni one but i dont mind so much.

guy in picture 1

looks like he is being chewed out because there is no vehicle Voltron. The guy pointing is saying," Josh B is not going to be pleased!"

I received my Red Lion & Lance Figure some days ago and I must say that I am very happy with them.

I simply can't wait to have all the parts to form VOLTRON and for the first time an accurate Blazing Sword and pilot figures, including Sven!!!!

Thank you MATTEL!!!!

I feel an urgent need to watch the entire series again on DVD!
