    Great shots! Really dig this set with the minifigures.
    May I ask where you acquired them?

    Etsy. No idea how they're making custom Lego figures but they came out really well. My only complaint is that the paint on the Voltron minifig's helmet is a little sloppy. Otherwise, they're all on point. I've seen a few sellers with them but this is the one I bought from.

    I got my set from eBay for something like $12 for the set.

    Built Red last night. Only thing I changed was the cheek piece to white.

    So I've been looking at red and green a little closer and wanted the faces to be a little more distinct so I made a couple minor changes. Turned the ears on green to be more like the cartoon. Also narrowed his face since he's a bit more skinnier.

    Was the green Lion's face skinnier? I have to admit I never saw much of the old cartoon. I was like 4 years old when it was on and I went straight from MOTU to TF. I meant to go back and watch the 80's show but they took it off Netflix. I like what you've done, especially with the yellow lion.

    the green lion was rounded and more cylindrical in both head and body while red was squared. yellow and blue were pretty identical except for the head.

    Flipped shoulders version. Has a slight LD look to it.

    I thought red and green had the same heads? At least that’s how the old toy was.

    To be fair, the head differences aren’t all that obvious until you zoom in like that. The differences are more readily apparent on their bodies, though.

    Yeah I clearly remembered the Red having the squared body and the Green the round body. But I thought they had the same head, kind of opposite how the leg lions were. Obviously that's not right.

    Still waiting for Blue Fin to ship my Voltron plamo, I'm guessing they're still processing orders taken from SDCC.

    As the wife might say, “It’s bigger than I expected it to be!”.

    Looks pretty good. Still debating whether I wanna pick this one up.
