    Depends. I've been to Targets that have three Black Lions to one set of limb lions.

    Some people have been able to get them, but they've had to ask.
    Last time I was at Target, the associate just used the app and didn't check the back.

    Going by what people have written on Reddit the Target's that have gotten the black lion get multiple black lions but one limb lion.

    Got the Action Toys mini Voltron from BBTS last week. Opened it up. It’s small but really cool though.

    Watched a review from Pixeldan about the Playmates 40th anniversary Voltron review and he said the toys are the exact same as the 2017 versions.

    I’ve only seen these at 1 high traffic Target store in the collectibles/anime toy section and they didn’t last long. I could be wrong but I think the limb lions ship in a case of 4, with 1 of each lion. At full MSRP($20 per limb lion, $30 for the black lion), I think they’re worth it.

    Correct.
    The Black Lion is two (2) per case.
    The Limbs are four (4) per case, with one (1) each of each color.

    They'll be worth it..IF I CAN FIND EM.
    Gracious sakes, this is so frustrating...

    Yeah, that explains my experience too. Saw a single Black Lion at Target but no limb lions anywhere.

    Also, I don't know if other's Targets do this, but the Targets I go to have essentially 2 toy sections, I guess a "kids" section and an "adult" section. This was stocked in the "adult" section along the Gundams and Neca figs.

    Some Targets will also stick some of the adult overflow in the kid's section too. Mostly NECA. Lucked out and found a Toony Terrors Captain Spaulding there. One Target I go to does that.

    Man, the Quest for Voltron is not going well. There are soooooo many funko pops, I don’t think there’s even room for new lions…and this store is not shy about letting the collectibles area be stacked like an xmas ross, haha

    Dunno if this has been posted or not but I'm assuming it's cheap but hey for $6.89 it's worth a shot for anyone looking for something random to checkout.
    Remember: You pay for what you get folks lol.

    It's a "Choice" item too meaning Free shipping if you find other "Choice" items and total is atleast $10.

    That's actually a surprisingly good figure for what it is! You can occasionally find them at closeout stores here in the U.S. I used to see them at Tuesday Morning. It is worth that asking price for somebody looking for a basic Vehicle Voltron to have on the shelf that won't break the bank.

    The only problem it doesn’t split apart all the way and you can’t form the teams.

    And it even looks like they could have done that with just a little more work too. I know it's supposed to be discount store fodder...but they could have added a few extra bits, doubled the price and it STILL would have been a bargain.

    I know they didn’t complete the team…not sure what the quality was like, though. Playmates is really frustrating. I know they have the ability…just don’t seem to have the desire. Since WEP seems to be handing out licenses to any swinging dick that comes down the pike these days, maybe somebody like Jada or Jakks could give us a set of pilots.
