    Yeah they really irritatedvme when then did that. I have a masterpiece version numbered in the 300s why wouldi buy a new one for the display. I know the eyes light up. But what's the point of a masterpiece edition if you just upstage it with an update.

    Now the dirugger photos look awesome. Can't wait for mine from image anime. Even though i paid way more than I'd of liked seeing these cheaper offerings popping up.

    Yeah same here, no charges yet either. Also I pre-ordered mine the first day it was up.

    It came in the usual Amazon box. GX box was perfect, no dents, scratches, smears or smudges.

    I pre-ordered mine within the 1st 45 min. I got mine so early probably because I was in the 1st batch.

    Yah same here. I had a program monitor the page every 5 mins, so I should have gotten it in the first batch no problem.

    Finally got one and it's bought & paid for. :) 

    I just hope it doesn't disappoint given the $340 price tag! I'm aware of the articulation and so forth. I'm mainly getting it to compliment my Lion Voltron as they look fantastic together. I do like Dairugger but the Lions are my #1 Voltron team & robot. I never had VV so this is also a first for me. A (hopefully) very nice high-end collector's piece to where quality matter more than quantity. Going straight to robot mode and staying that way.

    Woo! My Vehicle Voltron from Amazon shipped! Now I can breath easier knowing they didn't oversell like some said they sometimes do with toys.

    My Amazon GX-88 showed up this morning. Two issues: 1). the small chopper blades are hella loose (the larger ones are sufficiently snug, though), and 2). One of the diecast hip pegs that you have to fold out had an extra nub of metal on the end that prevented the tip from folding out completely straight...fixed with a needle file.

    Voltron family picture time! Playmates 16” Classic Voltron not pictured due to plastic incarceration...

    I just dripped a little Future into the one loose rotor hole. Worked perfectly.

    The usual "liquid that makes stuff tight" or do like me and use magic (magnets).

    Oh man, I love this thing.

    My biggest gripe is why the hell does the left/blue copter jut out so much in robot mode? I thought mine was busted but I guess that's the way it is.

    This is gorgeous.
