    Just search lionbot on ebay that's where I bought mine, and it's really good quality imho, not your typical ko transformer brittle plastic, tbt it's better quality than what Trendmasters gave us in the 90s

    Sorry to sidestep current thread excitement, but im really interested in finding a set of the fantasy jewel dark voltron lions. So far cheapest ive found is aliexpress but i havent used them very much, if at all. Any other suggestions? For taobao, maybe a total to the u.s.a. so i can see if its worth figuring out how to use (i know there are detailed instructions in another thread). Thanks!

    Is there any downside to POing with bababobo? I haven't seen it go up for PO at either Sideshow or BBTS.

    Yea man, no one should expect this to be affordable given the other products the company has produced. Getting interest and hoping for it would be a losing battle. I just want to see more of the features being integrated as this seems like a Voltron toy where the design team isn’t holding back. I had no idea they were going to implement LEDs for the eyes.

    Totally. This is badass for sure, but I need to weigh how much I actually want this thing because it's going to be hella expensive. I know for some this will be a must like it would for me if it were Macross. As someone who grew up on Voltron, and as a collector in general, this is turning out amazing. But is it $1000 amazing? Not sure for me.

    I believe you can survive with one kidney and only part of your liver, haha…

    This reveal
    Alright. This one may actually be where I tap out. LED eyes are cool and all, but I’d remove (or never install) the 5 sets of batteries, so that’s ponying up for electronics that’ll never be used. Still, props to Blitzway for seemingly pulling out every stop, and I’m stoked to see more of it.

    What is the deal with the black lion also having a light between its eyes? That was never a thing and just looks odd, goofy, and like a cheap kids toy gimmic just adding extra lights just to add them. It could easily be painted over but still its an odd choice

    Thought I likely wouldn’t use that feature, it is pretty boss and makes me wonder about the robot head and a possible light up blazing sword.
