LEGO Ideas Reveals Their Voltron Set for SDCC 2018

LEGO Ideas has come up with some very interesting and intricate builds over the years, and just recently they've reveled their kit of the classic animated series Voltron.

Check it out:


Here's a rundown on the details of the kit:

  • 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.
  • Display or play out exciting stories from the original 1980s animated Voltron TV series and the modern DreamWorks Voltron: Legendary Defender series.
  • Voltron measures over 15" (40cm) high, 5" (14cm) long and 8" (21cm) wide.
  • Black lion measures over 6" (17cm) high, 8" (22cm) long and 5" (15cm) wide.
  • Yellow and blue lions each measure over 3" (8cm) high, 8" (21cm) long and 3" (8cm) wide.
  • Green and red lions each measure over 3" (8cm) high, 7" (18cm) long and 1" (5cm) wide.
  • Voltron's sword measures 11" (29cm) long.
  • Voltron's shield measures 6" (16cm) in diameter.

With DreamWorks breathing new life into the franchise via the Netflix reboot, Voltron has found a new generation of fans, and they're sure to enjoy this kit.

I'll admit, the non-posable legs are kind of a bummer, but it will be cool to have a literal build-it-yourself transformer. Even the sword is made of individual parts instead of one giant plastic piece. It's also kind of a waste that the kit doesn't come with minifigures of the pilots.

The Voltron set is available for $179.99 at SDCC 2018, but it will be available for a wide release on Aug. 1.

Catch Voltron: Legendary Defender on Netflix.
