This morning brings about an impressive new LEGO reveal, coming from the LEGO Ideas platform, based on the iconic Voltron! The massive set comes in at a little over 2,300 pieces that allows you to build the five individual lions (that can be posed and played with on their own) which can then combine and transform into at 15 inch Voltron figure. Seriously, this is all sorts of cool. Even if you’re not a huge fan of Voltron, there’s no denying how impressive the LEGO set is overall.
It’s time to defend the universe so get ready to form LEGO® Ideas 21311 Voltron, the biggest buildable LEGO mech ever! This awesome set features buildable and highly posable black, blue, yellow, red and green lions with specially designed, extra-strong joints to combine them all and create the Voltron super robot, plus a huge sword and shield that attach firmly to Voltron’s hands. Ideal for display or to recreate thrilling action from the original 1980s animated Voltron TV series and the modern DreamWorks Voltron: Legendary Defender series.
• Features 5 buildable and posable lions that can be transformed and combined to create the giant Voltron super robot.
• Play with the lions individually or combine them using extra-strong joints to form Voltron—the black lion forms the head and torso; the red and green lions form the arms; and the yellow and blue lions form the legs.
• Pose the head, shoulders, arms and wrists of Voltron (legs are not posable).
• Also includes a sword and shield (each with silver-colored elements) that attach firmly to Voltron’s hands.
• Includes a booklet with building instructions, plus information about the set’s fan creator and super force of LEGO® designers.
• This set includes over 2,321 pieces
The Voltron set will launch on August 1st for $179.99 BUT a limited number of sets will be available to purchase for SDCC attendees next month.
