    Something happened to my model kit Voltron. Some piece of plastic must have broke off and now the one Black Lion front leg always falls out easily and doesn’t stay put in combined mode. Not sure what to do...not sure Future or nail polish will do the trick?

    Have you compared it with the other leg to see what the difference is?

    Since I can't afford the extremely high priced SOC, I ended up preordering the Icarus Voltron reissue due out in March (hopefully). It will go with my Miracle Metal Works Dairugger I got a month ago from a fellow member here.

    Major QC issues on the SOC's are thankfully rare. About the worst recent one was the GX-75 Mazinkaiser had a fragility issue with the chest crest which could break in shipping. Voltron is pretty QC free, save 2 things to watch for. The Yellow or Blue lions rear legs have been known to pop off in shipping. They easily pop back on no problem, so long as you don't lose the teeny little spring in the packing materials. The only other thing to watch for is the inner trays don't have a unified orientation in the box. Check with side is the open side on yours before sliding it out. Otherwise you will dump the robots on the floor. Don't just assume the tray is facing the boxes front.

    Am I alone in thinking that looks terrible?

    I'm curious as to what it may have hidden up its sleeve....need to do some googling

    Edit: 12" tall...non transforming...light up effects in lions' heads...somewhere north of $120...

    Those painted cat whiskers reminds me an awful lot of those Panosh Place lions.

    Yeah...the two things I don't care for are that and those cat slippers he's wearing. They aren't horrible...but removing those whiskers might make them a bit less prominent.

    I just think it looks dumb as hell. The lion heads on the feet are ridiculous, and they're huge yet the head is way too small.

    The problem as it were with Voltron is everything about the transformation is evident, so you can still see the lion legs in combined form, and the bodies, and those are the most disproportionate, doofy looking lions I've ever seen.

    That depends on which version of Voltron your comparing it to.

    If it’s the toy, then your issues with it is valid. If your comparing it to the animation, than no.

    The arm lions have no front or back legs showing, it’s just not there. And the leg lions only has perfect circle details for both their front and back legs.

    Just wanted to point that out, is all.

    Wouldn't it be DreamWorks at this point? Do they co-own the IP or...?

    I feel it’s obvious what I meant from the context of my post.

    If you look at the figure above, you can see the entirety of the limb lions folded up, and they’re incredibly disproportionate.

    Now that I had some decent sleep, I don't know why that was such a sticking point for me. :dunce  But I do agree with you, it's still a bad figure no matter how I slice it. LOL :lol

    Does anyone recall this Robotech/Macross + Voltron Cross-over comic?

    I don't have any Robotech/Macross stuff, but was wondering if anyong knew of a Valkryie that scaled well with the SOC Voltron.
