    I say get it if you really love Lego and Voltron. It really is a great kit and I enjoyed making it and like it more than my SoC Voltron to be honest. Just because it ticks both of my happy boxes.

    I doubt though that Bandai will make a SOC LD Voltron. Are there any SOC products that are originally American IP? Go-Lion/Dairugger are JP IPs first before they were known as Voltron.

    Ah yeah. Did that do well? Maybe there's a chance for LD.

    Theyve actually shown prototypes for other jaegers a few years back but they haven't seen the light of day since

    Does GameStop package and ship well? I'm tempted to send my beat-up-box Amazon one back if I can reliably get one in good condition.

    I ordered Transformers Ectotron, Marvel Legends 80th Hulk/Wolverine from Gamestop.com in recent months.

    Both times they shipped, it was packed securely with airbags.

    This is my Ectotron from Gamestop from months ago.

    But YMMV.

    Good luck!

    Thanks! At least it looks better than just loosely throwing it into a box and slapping a label on! Padding, what a concept!

    I think I'll order one and, worst case if it arrives in worse condition than the Amazon one, I return it to GameStop (I assume I can return in store right?). If it arrives better I can return the Amazon one as planned.

    Just shipped my loot with my SOC VV. It should arrive next week while I'm off from work.

    I've only ordered small stuff from them like games and action figures. No problems. But if you want, I think they can deliver it to your closest gamestop/thinkgeek in your area if your worried about the condition of your dairugger MIB being dented or beat up. Good luck!

    They are all over the place. Sometimes they cram stuff in with bent flaps. Sometimes they individually wrap each item in brown paper. Sometimes they use air pillows. Sometimes it's just a bare, but correctly sized, box. I would wait for the GameStop one to show up and ship the worst one back to Scamazon.

    Does anyone have links to any good mods for Lego Voltron, specifically for the hips and black lion’s shoulders to avoid parts-forming?
