    Heres another custom from my own personal collection ive been working on for atleast 4 years. VOLTRON is my all time favorite combiner. I think i was a fan of Voltron before transformers. Finally got it standing, stands 29inches tall from tiger head to tiger head should be close to 4 foot tall once complete. Fully transformable, will have a lot of functional features, lights, sounds, and cockpits for figures. Should be done this year just needs some bulking up its a little on the lanky side right now.

    I will be integrating and modifying these figures as well as their vehicles within this voltron.

    I'll be modeling this custom after the reference pic below:

    I can't wait to see this finished. I had the toynami mp voltron, but had to sell it. This looks like thee lions will be a lot more stenciled than those though. However, will you be able to heaver the necks of the red and green lions retract somehow for voltron? The look out of place as is.

    Not sure found it online somewhere, just another reference pic.

    yeah still have to bulk those up a bit, i wanted to extend the heads a bit to give it more of overall lion figure and also more of a proportioned wrist for voltron.

    No i dont, you got a sneak peek link for that:) ?

    The Trendmasters base figure. I have the yellow lion just about done. It's the black lion that's going to have to be pretty much 100% rebuilt, because as you know, it's a shit heap.

    Great to see you back in action!

    Easy fix! luckily their interchangeable.

    Yeah I can tell you do have this figure...lol. Yeah the black lion has only 40 percent of the original figure left. it is a pile of crap...lol. I pretty much gutted out the insides to make it stable enought to hold a lot of the extra weight.

    Thanks DEz glad to be back!

    not sure when it's coming out, but i believe it's going to be released individually as part of mattycollector. Each one has a pilot that can fit inside...and it's expensive. Like 100 a limb or something. i was very exctied about it until I saw the price.

    R!

    Nice. Building a big Voltron compatible with GIJOE size figures is one of the many things on my long term project list, I look forward to seeing what you do with this.
