Years in the making (okay, two -- it was originally proposed as a LEGO Ideas set in 2016, then approved for production about a year ago), these are the pics just unveiled by LEGO of their upcoming (August 1st) release of an official 2,321 piece Voltron construction set. The set will build five complete lions (black, blue, red, green and yellow), which can be combined to form a 15-inch tall Voltron with posable head, shoulders, arms and wrists. No word on price yet, but if it's based on six-year old me's personal excitement, it'll be around a million bucks and I won't be able to afford one. "It's $180." That's a steal. "You're cool with that?" No, I meant I'll have to steal a friend's.

Keep going for shots of all the individual lions.

Thanks to Webdoctor (I have cancer, don't I?!) and Jeffrey S, who can't wait till we're all hanging out in the basement building our Voltrons together. How sweet it will be!

    ITS - like other personal possessive pronouns like his, hers, theirs, and ours, "its" does not have an apostrophe. "It's" always means "it is" or "it has," neither of which would make sense in that sentence.

    Looks....blocky.

    Time to superglue the pieces together too. Some of the key joins only have 1 circle of friction.

  • Meh

    Terrible. What happened to all the good designers at Lego??

  • Jenness

    Pretty sure I'd unpack the pieces and 5 minutes later I'd be the older yet hot (*pats herself on the back*) female version of this kid reevaluating their delusions of lego-building competency: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2...

    Voltron > Power Ranger Zards

    What are "zards"? I remember the giant robots being "Zords."

  • KingCraigers

    I think he was being funny and calling them zord retards. Zards.

  • Bling Nye

    On the one hand, I really want that.

    On the other hand, I really want that.

    Are both hands lions?

  • Doc

    All four limbs are lions - red, yellow, blue and green; the black lion is the head and main body.
