Voltron Legendary Defender (Combined)

I actually turned off the

I actually turned off the sound effects on mine while assembling it since I kept accidentally hitting the button. So I didn't even realize they made the appropriate sounds like that! Very cool. That said, as much as I love this set, there's a few things about the combined form that I didn't care for. The horns on mine were so tight that I actually had to, carefully, use a pair of pliers to get them out. I also kind of wish that there was a separate joint to turn the arms rather than having to rotate the entire shoulder. Lastly, I wish the tails weren't rubber. The tail of my yellow lion keeps sticking out and just refuses to stay inserted so it looks a bit distracting. But overall, this thing is a real pleasant surprise.

Mixed Feelings, Mostly Positive

The electronics are fine, but I'd rather not have them if only to make him less back-heavy. I wish the shoulders weren't part of the black lion and I'd like to be able to store the tails inside like on the show. But overall, it's really cool that we have these and that kids have a chance to buy an affordable combining Voltron for the first time in 20 years.

The lions individually are great, so I may break down and buy the super-poseable one so they can stay in lion form.

One More Thing

And though I know the show isn't being driven by toy sales, I'm now wondering what's next for the toys. What can we expect in the future?

Playmates announced a 9" diecast combining voltron, and VERY large lions with cockpits for normal sized action figures of the pilots. It's going to be great!
