Can't believe this hasn't made it on here.

http://www.collectiondx.com/news_item/111811/chogokin_vehicle_voltron

Miracle Productions is producing a Vehicle Voltron for the Asian market. It's a controversial release as US-based online retailers were sent cease and desist orders from WEP and are not allowed to offer it for order. The only way to get it is to import it but it's been difficult to find.

The release looks great, is more than 60% die-cast and looks to be very poseable. I think it'll be 13" tall.

This is going to be a hot item.

I'm not even a fan of the Vehicle Voltron and that thing is all sorts of Awesome waiting to happen.

Yeah, I'd give it Toy of the Year awards as well, probably even if it never makes it out of the proto-stage...

I thought we had a thread on this, but apparently not. This is the latest news on it...

Quote:
Classic Media, on behalf of WEP, sent cease and desist letters to Toyfreakz and BigBadToyStore, prohibiting them from selling the Vehicle Voltron in the US due to licensing agreements.

Miracle Productions has the legitimate rights, granted from WEP, to manufacture and sell the toy in select Asian markets, including, but not limited to Hong Kong and Singapore. These rights do not extend to retail sales outside of those areas.

At this time, the toy will still be produced.

It's been reported at collectiondx that Toyfreakz seems to be the only place to get this. You'll have to email the owner directly at sales@toyfreakz.com. I believe they are still honoring the promotion of getting a die cast blazing sword with any preorder. I don't know how long they will be doing it.

As of yesterday, I haven't seen it on any other import sites. Since it seems it's not produced for the Japanese market, I don't think a place like HLJ will get it either (it wasn't on the site).

I'd actually been working behing the scenes with Toy Freakz to review and promote this, until the C&D thing happened. I know of a place or two that plans to import this cool piece ;)

Cool! Hopefully you can still get your hands on it for a review. I'm hoping my order sticks. I was always fond of this Voltron incarnation.

Do you know if Miracle was also working on, or thinking about, a Lion Force toy next? Obviously, that wouldn't be easy to import either but I read that on a board somewhere and don't know if it's true.

I have no knowledge of a Lion Force Voltron in development, but I hear your pre-order should be filled without worry. If it isn't hit me up with a PM once it's made, I can probably steer you in the right direction.
