“And I’ll Form The Head!”
While originally announced last year, LEGO has finally moved forward with their plan to release a special edition LEGO ‘Voltron’ set! This set was part of the ‘LEGO Ideas’ platform, which allows fans to submit ideas to LEGO that other fans can then vote on to determine which sets get made! Once a set gets enough votes, it moves forward to be reviewed by LEGO who determine if it’s a set they feel they can actually make or not. Thankfully for us all, LEGO ‘Voltron’ is now officially a thing, and it is beautiful.
The all new LEGO ‘Voltron’ will go up for preorder on August 1st, 2018 with an anticipated price of $179.99! It may sound a bit outlandish in price, but when you consider you get a 15″ LEGO ‘Voltron’ figure that is fully articulated, can separate into the five individual Voltron Lion Force Lions, and is made up of over 2000 pieces, it seems a small price to pay! Check out the full release info from LEGO below!
It’s time to defend the universe so get ready to form LEGO® Ideas 21311 Voltron, the biggest buildable LEGO mech ever! This awesome set features buildable and highly posable black, blue, yellow, red and green lions with specially designed, extra-strong joints to combine them all and create the Voltron super robot, plus a huge sword and shield that attach firmly to Voltron’s hands. Ideal for display or to recreate thrilling action from the original 1980s animated Voltron TV series and the modern DreamWorks Voltron: Legendary Defender series.
- Features 5 buildable and posable lions that can be transformed and combined to create the giant Voltron super robot.
