    Now, I do think that the interchangeable lions would NOT allow for the new lion like shapes, but would be still cool. I know you could do it with the old box shaped lions no problem. Every cat would be built the same, with connection points and flip up Voltron combined mode heads, but just be able to slide wider with a solid area underneath when they form the chest.

    I am as old school as you get, and I loved the interchangeable update to Voltron. It changed Voltron without really changing it. In fact, I think it is actually a kind of dumbing down of new powers, because you have to move these huge robots in order to use certain weapons.

    New one! Classic got a masterpiece, time to move on! And GeeWuners just cause you werent the intended market doesnt mean the show (and thusly toy design) deserve your fan hate! So as MrOptimus said do the new one with swappability possible! Maybe store their respectice weapons in their torso cavity!

    I vote for Voltron Force! They missed a killer marketing opportunity by not producing a plethera of toys for that show. Multiple voltrons and especially clear plastic weapons would have been awesome.

    I say create one from the best elements of each or create your own version.
    FYI power rangers zords are good donors, sabretooth tiger for example.

    Mark has always Scratchbuilt everything he does.

    That's what I like about him so much.

    To do what you suggested would make the toys way too simplistic.

    Mark is heavy on detail and functionality in his projects. :)

    I'm voting with Encline, go with a Classic design but hyper detail it like this papercraft, so its badass and unique from the main release Voltron's

    Alright based on what everyone wants... go with:
    Orginal classic design
    Multi-torso construction
    Energy weapons themed to each torso
    Highly detailed!

    I miss anything?

    Yeah man. I loved this new "Scramble City" Voltron and I was really hoping to get a toy with this gimmick. I was sad when ZERO toys came out for this line. I would have to agree with the people saying Force :)

    How about Gladiator Voltron for a change? Or Voltrex, that would be sweet.

    Classics one would be sweet, but there are a lot of em out there. I like some of the elements of the new VF version (not how they are able to interchange though)....I"ve been saving up parts (lio jr mostly) to make a beast wars voltron. This thread revived my interest in it.

    But to answer your question....I'd like to see a VF custom!

    Voltron Force. EVERYONE does the classic. Try something that hasn't been done yet.

    I always thought it would be cool to see a Voltron where the limbs all had bot modes. Kinda like a Predaking/Voltron mashup.
