UPDATE 7/23/18: THE VOLTRON SET IS NOW LIVE FOR VIP MEMBERS CLICK HERE
LEGO just dropped a major bomb on us with an approved LEGO Ideas Voltron set. The Voltron set consists of 2,321 pieces, but unfortunately for me no minifigures of any kind to mess around with. The LEGO Voltron is available exclusively to VIPs from July 23 – 31, 2018.
This is major news for me as I love collecting LEGO and own a closet full of them. I generally only collect sets from MARVEL, DC, Star Wars, and misc ones such as Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, and now most definitely this.
Anyways more information taken from the official LEGO site:
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.
