I got one from nippon yasan
Wow. I missed the preorders from all those shops.
They're selling extremely fast and I'm having no luck at all.
This blows. Just want one.
Does this release come with the Voltron cover for the box and name plaque?
20% off all orders at checkout through 3/17, code: PATS20 Voltron Store
Not sure when Entertainment Earth went live, but they are all sold out as well. Window slowly closing, good luck to all.
Looks like the ebay scalpers have nothing to worry about after all. I can't believe how limited this re-release seems to be thus far. Pretty depressing really.
Maybe some of you* will have a shot in August? Like I said, this is the sort of stuff I often got shorted on so it's possible places doing preorders are being conservative.
*I'd say us but I have the original so I'm not _totally_ screwed by this debacle.
Did AJP ever offer PO’s for this?
Most popular SOC ever?
Voltron Soul of Chogokin GX-71 Voltron (2nd Production Run)
Quite possibly. Voltron is one of the few robots in the SOC line that is iconic on both sides of the Pacific.
Good lord. It sold out again in 2 minutes after your post. I had it in my cart too!!
Not ideal, but NY has it for 37,000 Yen.

Pay up front is required. A shitty deal all around, but still better than the $800 some paid for this.
Crazy how Voltron is still selling this fast! I figured the reissue shouldn’t be as crazy as the first release. I was looking to get a second set but I may just scratch that. Here’s hoping I can preorder Vehicle Voltron with minimal hassle...
That one shouldn't be a problem. hell, Go Lion was available everywhere until people started getting them. It is a very nice toy, best Lion Voltron ever.
Vehicle Voltron was nowhere near as popular as Lion, as far as I can tell. I could be wrong, but most toys up to this date have been all about Lion.
I hope so
I missed the first release because Fanstoys omega was coming out and I chose him instead. Then after seeing all the reviews I regretted not picking up the SOC Voltron when I had the chance. I was quite nervous I’d miss the reissue as well when the foreign sites sold out instantly. I was lucky enough to get an order in yesterday with bbts though so I’m happy. Although I’m more looking forward to Dairugger because he’s the toy I had growing up and currently. I hope I get in on that preorder when it’s announced. These two will look fantastic together.
My trigger finger was itching yesterday with those LV POs, but I opted not to get one. I just hope Dairugger is easier to obtain...that's the one I really want. I have the Matchbox, Playmates and Minipla versions, so, I think I'm actually good on LV for the time-being.
You could try to get your hands on the Icarus Voltron or Mad Toys Voltron. Both are made with decent die cast and have a premium feel to them. I had the Mad Toys one and only sold it after I got the SOC. I regret selling it as it is a really fun version with tons of accessories. You should be able to find one on ebay
