LEGO Voltron is Everything I’ve Ever Wanted From This Sad, Stupid World
The day I’ve been waiting nearly two years for has arrived: LEGO Voltron stands revealed! The massive, multi-lion LEGO set will be available to purchase on Aug. 1 for about $180.
Oh man, I’ve been salivating over this. It’s a work of freakin’ art! I was a big Voltron fan as a kid, and I’m a big fan of the current revival on Netflix. I had all of the Voltron lion action figures as a kid. They were such fun toys.
Now Voltron is coming in LEGO form, in a giant model that stands over a foot tall! And you’ll be making each individual lion, with the ability to combine them into Voltron later. That is genius and awesome and life isn’t supposed to be this much fun.
Check out more pictures and information on the LEGO website.
If you can recall, Voltron was one of the LEGO Ideas products, which lets fans build their own models and submit them for selection. It’s the same way we got Doctor Who LEGO and Ghostbusters LEGO. I love that this thing exists and I love that it’s given us Voltron.
Granted, we don’t get the Paladins as mini-figs, which is disappointing. But I can live with that sort of disappointment.
I might have to take the day off from work. Or the week…
