Legendary Blue Lion

May not be out yet

Looking at the scarcity in brick'n mortar stores and e-tailers still having them for pre-order, I'm starting to think they aren't supposed to be out till the 2nd season drops. Some have just been lucky with some stores that didn't care about the street date and threw what they had on the shelves anyway.

I found the black lion at my local Wal-mart, but it was the only one and mixed in with the Legos and board games.

Good sign

That's a good sign then probably. I actually just checked my e-mail for the first time in two days and got one from the official Voltron site. They said the toys were now available, so I sped to my local TRU and found the rest of the legendary lions. They actually had everything except the legendary black lion.

So hopefully everyone will have an easier time finding them now or soon.

The neck

I read elsewhere that the Blue and Yellow Lions have proper necks, but they're collapsed in the box, and have to be manually extended.

That's true! And I didn't

That's true! And I didn't realize that until after I sent this in, so you can imagine I feel a little sheepish. The extension doesn't particularly increase the range of motion in the neck at all, though.
