    TBF, Choryujin kinda has to parts-form if you want any sort of articulation and proportions.

    But I'll wait until we see official pics of Voltron before I decide. Could be replacing the lion legs is merely optional. That said, Minipla Daizyujin didn't impress me with it's frankly lazy partsforming and separation, but Voltron's so incredibly simple by comparison.

    So, is Allura part of the team? I was curious sense she wares the paladin outfit. I don't have Netflix and haven't been keeping up with the series.

    Yes she is part of the team, it’s been awhile but if I remember correctly Keith went off to work with the Blade of Mamora.

    It actually started earlier, when Shiro went missing, Allura had to step in to pilot a lion, and bonded with Blue, leaving Lance without a Lion until he bonded with the Red Lion.

    It was actually the opposite, wasn't it? Lance had already bonded with Red, and Allura then took Blue.

    Ah you’re right, I recall Blue locking Lance out first but he did get Red before Allura took Blue.

    Yep, I watched the episode the other day. I like the show, wish they would throw in the original US music from time to time as my only gripe.

    Thanks, I guess they are trying to be as close to the original series as they can. I have seen several of the classic lions at both Walmart and Target. Though Target seems to be the only store getting the black lion.

    Yeah I really miss the original music but IIRC there are apparently rights issues so they’re unable to use it.

    Hey all...i just got ultimate ex voltron...one of his silver/grey shin pieces refuses to pull down his leg...like its wedged between the leg itself and the black cover piece. I dont see any screws to get at to loosen it.. i spent a little while w a tiny flathead screwdriver to try and pry it free to no avail. Anyone else have this issue? How to fix? Ty!

    Don’t be afraid to push the tails ALL the way in. The rings around the “laser emitters” are meant to go inside the body in order to hold the tails in place :)

    I hear ya man! It’s like they give you JUST enough space for the tails with ZERO wiggle-room. The tails are molded with a slight “S” curve to them, so that might hinder their insertion. Try twisting them as you insert them next time. This might help you “feel” any snags that may occur. Plus, if you open the “connector peg” first, that will give you a window into what’s going on in there. Hope that helps some. Good luck :)

    Sooo, I liked this picture so much, I had an acrylic print of it made. I didn't know how it would turn out, but after I received it, I was like "Wow!". So you could say I was pleased.

    If anyone has a good Voltron pic that my friend can run through the filter for you, let me know.

    I'm still waiting for my copy of color icarus through lcm toy.

    Where did you get it printed? Costco now offers this too, but I haven't seen any prints in person.

    That is awesome. What program and filter was used. I have experience with multiple photo editing programs.

    Awesone! How close is it to the original art on screen file? Are you using a calibrated monitor? That's always an issue for me. Pay a lot more through a print house and get it close to screen accurate or pay a lot less via Costco and have shadows crushed. They still do a good job though.
