    I just purchased this off of EBAY for a pretty good deal..ive always been a fan of Voltron, and I figured I should jump on this while they are still available..The last 5000 or so have been released.

    What's everyones thoughts and opinions on this set for those who have it?

    Ebay:
    I bought one when it first came out, but it fell short of 'Masterpiece' status - at least by my definition - so I let it go.

    Combined mode is great, but I felt the individual lions could have been given way, way more articulation in the legs/heads. It's not enough of an update from the original for my tastes.

    But aside from some minor quality control problems I read about (mine didn't have them) it seems like a lot of folks enjoy him. Congrats!

    Only thing I would have liked : tiny figures, cockpits and firing missiles. Head poseability is only a minor problem for the green and red lions, the other 3 have a good range of movement (especially the black one).

    I bought one a couple of days ago from Ebay using the Buy-It-Now for $110. Paid for it through Paypal. But for some reason the next day the Auction was gone from my purchase list. Contacted ebay about it and they told me they couldn't tell me why it was removed. So now I am trying to get my money back. Oh well, live and learn. If its too good of a price its probably fake. Dammit.

    It was my Holy Grail.

    Now it is among my most valued possessions, along with MP-Prime.

    It is one of the most amazing things I've held in my hands.
