So, who is biting on the new Voltron figures?

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

So, who is biting on the new Voltron figures?

I was only a so-so fan of Voltron growing up, mainly because the station they played it on didn't always have the best reception in my house. However, I've been watching re-runs of the original series and have since become a bigger fan.

For those who don't know, MattyCollector.com has starting putting out new versions of the Lions, complete with pilots. Once you have all 5, you can form a nearly 2 foot tall Voltron.

I ordered the Red Lion and Lance yesterday. Did anyone else?

Voltron is pretty cool. I too watched it on a static filled UHF station out of Chicago when I was young (channel 60 I think).

I don't know much about this current Voltron, and the red lion is already sold out, but the one that came with the sneakers looks awesome. I've thought about trying to get that one.

I've got some bits from past Voltron forces lying around, but nothing complete.
I really miss my Voltron camera and have no idea when I lost it. Checked one out on ebay a couple of weeks ago and was like "Whaaaa?".

Well, as Delicon already knows, I picked up Red Lion and lance too.


Didn't even know they went on sale until he mentioned it during our chat. Went on mattycollector and ordered it right there and then.

Now the main issue is waiting for the rest.

Well, it's obviously going to cost more, but you can still pick up the Red Lion from site sponsor BBTS.

As far as the shows, the DVD sets are pretty cheap these days, not to mention there being episodes all over Youtube. I've personally been watching them on Netflix, they have the complete series up there.

As payment for this service I did you, I expect you to name your first child (or hamster) after me.

Well, the Red Lion will cost that much now, but here's a breakdown for you if you buy the rest on Mattycollector:

Red/Green Lion are each $50 a pop pluss $10 shipping

Blue/Yello Lion are each $55 and I'm going to guess $10 shipping

BLack Lion is $65 and I will assume another $10 shipping

So a 2 foot tall Voltron with all the pilots will cost you $275 before shipping.

Not that bad compared to what some of us dropped on Hercules.

Even if you don't get Red Lion now, I'd highly recommend grabbing the other lions cause this will definitely be a desirable set later on.

How does this new one compare to the Masterpiece Voltron released a couple of years ago.

I don't have Red Lion in hand, but I can tell you size in one thing. I will assume Red Lion is about the size of one of Fort Max's arms.

I'm also thinking that there's no diecast in this one. I have the plastic version of the MP Voltron and I think to handle size and weight issues, the mattycollector Lions will be plastic.

Also, the lions open up to have the pilots sit in them and the pilots themselves are the 3 3/4 inch figures.

So yeah, the Toynami Voltron has got nothing on this one.

I have seen the Red Lion side by side with the MOTUC Battle Cat and they are about the same size.If people want pictures I can post them as soon as I get mine in the mail


People are already talking about what would be next after all the Lions are released...Well we could be getting the bad guys next year along with some vehciles like the Skull Tank and maybe even a Robeast.There are still other versions of Voltron that could be released

I might need that number.

My order shipped today, but 1 major problem. THEY CHARGED ME TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I got charged on the day of the sale and I got charged today! Now I have $60 in limbo.

And before anyone says I wasn't paying attention, I was. I keep very good track of my purchases and expenses. I know what I spent and I know what they charged me. bank account records don't lie.

I would love to have this Voltron, but it just isn't going to happen. Too expensive.

On a related note, if anyone has a complete Voltron figure that they want to get rid of because they are getting this new one, let me know!

I got mine like 5 days after I ordered. Much less hassle than Red Lion.

Black Lion is gonna be massive.

That slow service caused my Yellow Lion to be two weeks in getting here. Matty won't allow me to change to UPS I guess when your locked into a subscription your can't change the shipping method

I agree Black Lion will be huge

I;d like to get them but they are too expensive for my liking. Plus i feel the designs are a little too simplistic and "toy" like. My favourite Voltron is the original die cast version and these new Matty lions don't really have that same flavor goin on for me. I feel it's a bit of a missed opportunity to make a really cool/bad ass Voltron. At the very least they should have chromed the legs for crying out loud. But for the most part i feel the molds just need more detail. The only thing i think they have going for them is the enormous size. Which is pretty cool though.

Either way......i'm not biting.
