    Honestly the face isn’t accurate to source materials either...it looks so gaunt compared to the animation.

    I mean I think it's been said that SoC is representative of the show while MP is of the Toy, hence the silver (show) vs the white (toy) on the lions faces, hence briefs (show) vs boxers (toy) and I'm always more about toy accuracy than show so MP > SoC lol

    But the toys are supposedly based on the cartoons so there's no toy accurate ;)

    All I know is that this is the coolest thing to me right now. This scene.

    Never appreciated it when I was a kid.

    good point in some instances, but then the question is, which came first the toy to profit off the show or the show to push the sales of the toy ;)  if we go by U.S. toy came first: In 1983 Bandai America released a Golion figure as part of their Godaikin line. First episode of Voltron was September 10, 1984. now what IDK is the Japanese toy dates as the anime was March 4, 1981

    i'm not trying to argue but i do enjoy the convo as we wait for more pics

    I'd say it only an argument if hostility is present. This is an informative debate at best.

    Now back to Voltron! <[====€]========[>

    Yeah, Voltron had a very chiseled, "handsome" face and the SOC is too soft and "Roman sculpture" in its features.

    It's like the image above iss Part 3 Dio and the SOC was Part 1 Dio.

    Oh man, now I'm wondering if mine will change as well. Or hopefully yours will change soon.

    that amazon e-mail remind me to cancel my preorder from there. Not sure what to do with my BBTS one yet, maybe sell it back or cancel that one as well.

    I honestly can’t recall what Amazon’s original estimated delivery date was for my order. I’m not bummed. I’m basically using my Amazon order as a backup in case the BBTS order flakes out or shows up with QC issues.
