    Hopefully, that will bring prices back down to normal. Have they announced if it’s a reissue of the box set or of the individually packaged lions?

    Looks like the box set for $100, limb lions for $20, black lion for $30.

    I picked up the box set for myself the first time it was offered, on Walmart.com. It’s a really nice set and displays nicely. The box is ridiculously big though. Bigger than the original Matchbox one and much bigger than the Soul of Chogokin ones.

    I held off on getting him for the longest time just due to how large he is…finally scrounged the individually packaged versions as they were disappearing from retail. I’m glad I did, he’s a fun toy!

    well kinda - it’s two clear shelves holding an empty Matchbox box because i like the look of it. but the shelf is actually securely anchored and could hold the weight of it were full.

    Nice! I use clear shelves to hold my Lego Falcons on the wall so was curious if that is what you did. Gives me an idea on how to display more stuff. Thank for the idea!

    I've got a guy local to the brewery that's gonna send me the red and blue together. But yeah that hole in that lower shelf is killing me :)

    THIS IS AWESOME! What did you use for the colored lights for the Blitzway flying lions?

    Thanks! For the light I found these which are perfect since they’re all part of the same set and play nice with my smart outlet:

    So I did the thing. And I’m very happy I did so far. Didn’t have time to do much with him after work last night but open the box. combine him up, and separate into the lions but it’s aces so far.

    Ebay:
    I only have the Metal Bear KO, so this may/not apply, but I put some clear tape squares below the heads of the blue and yellow lion, on the flat parts that touch the surface when standing in combined mode.
    Mine was starting to scuff the plastic from repositioning him on his shelf more than a few times.

    Edit: see green arrows. The areas on the rounded base are not possible to put tape on because it’s got textured details on it.
