Voltron/Golion collecting and fandom?

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.

I just preordered the 30th anniversary MP Voltron. I was curious for those that have it already if the know what the dimensions of the packaging is off hand? Strange request, I know... I'm not even sure what the 30th box will look like, I think they packaged it differently for different releases of it.

I'm not sure there really is a definitive Voltron out there yet, but I think the die cast is what I like about it, it is like a more articulated version of the 80's die cast toy.

This seems to have flown under the radar. I wonder what the final size will be. He looks gigantic, even next to the 30" jumbo Voltron.

I saw this as well. Love Voltron and currently own the Matty Collector version. $300.00 is crazy steep otherwise I would be saving were it not for TF purchases I want to make this year.

This looks incredible. I really wish it was 12" instead of 18", but I have no complaints otherwise.

Next to TF, Voltron was my next favorite cartoon growing up. I spend enough money on TF, but would really like 1 nice Voltron set. Any recommendations?

Can someone explain why Toynami and Bandai both make Voltron toys? What are the major differences between the two? I noticed Toynami has a few versions as well, which is confusing to me. And Bandai has the SoG version coming out, which looks amazing. While I love the Netflix series, I'm not sure Playmates version is an option given the low quality of toys I've seen from them.

Anyone know if there's any plans on making Voltron figures based on the Netflix cartoon? I mean, I know the current design isn't exactly a far cry from the original, but still.

Quick question. I saw this in the description for the SoC Golion: "Voltron, defender of the universe returns! the single best-selling character in the history of the chogokin series is back...."

I'm not familiar with the different iterations of Voltron/Golion from Bandai. So there have been other previous versions within this line? So I take it this is the "definitive" version from Bandai, their equivalent of Masterpiece?
