    After binge watching the new Legendary Defender series and being full of giddy school girl love i bought the combining Voltron. After seeing that the wings can easily detach and other people attempting a wing shield i went to work. I have not completed it but i wanted to share my template for anyone wanting to give this a try themselves.

    I fabricated a custom piece to hold the wings together as shown below using instamorph. More on that when i post the final product.

    As you can see i took a picture of the combined wings and traced it and put it into autocad

    This is what the template looks like.

    And here is the uncut template taped to a case i bought from Michaels which will serve as my shield. Lines up pretty good i think.

    Printable PDF template. Be sure to print 11x17.

    That's a great idea and thanks for sharing the file! I reeeaaaally am on the fence with LD Voltron, l love everything about him except the shoulder area. To me the relationship between the head and shoulders is off.

    I was too but I must say aside from the stuff they did wrong it really is an impressive figure. I wish it had chogokin voltron articulation but I'm glad i got it. I wish there were more mods out there.
