Can you tell me the Length x Width x Height of the white mailer box so I can find shipping boxes big enough to ship Black Lion to my friends in Germany? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks.

The size of the original Bandai GO-Lion in SOC would be at least 400.00 if not more.

That would’ve been great!
I’m also looking forward to the MP/TF VV!

He’s the one I can’t get my hands on. I recently got the mini trendmasters that breaks into 5lions, almost giving up on the mini lb.

In the one pic it’s under his arm?

I love the toy. Just with the quality was better. Paint out of lines, scuffs on the lions face….

I’m not fond of the thin wings, or his face, but he does excel at certain things, and is a really nice version overall. This new one has great hips (he can kick all the way out to the side), and the heavily ratcheted joints hold poses well, much better than the floppy Toynami version. Sadly, the proposed Bandai Soul of Chogokin version (which made it to the prototype stage prior to be scrapped for licensing reasons) might just have been the ultimate version. I’m very excited for the upcoming Vehicle Voltron from Toy Freakz.

I just can’t really imagine how Mattel’s will be more poseable without the 3 PoA’s that I mentioned. Can the lion’s even do a crouching pose?

Anyways, its really cool we are getting this, but I still think Toynami gets the gold and Mattel a close silver just for the sheer size.

This one is capable of almost all of the poses Toynami’s can do, and I think it can do some Toynami’s can’t. It also doesn’t feel like it’s going to break every time I pick it up. This was my opinion, which I feel I’m entitled to as someone who really does own almost every version of this character ever made.

That title goes to the Toynami Masterpiece Voltron. The edges it have over this Mattel rendition – bicep swivels, fully poseable lion legs (not hindered by any spring), fully poseable Black lion jaws (not spring loaded).

Please do more research before making such comments.

Anyways, I still subscribed to this line, and cant wait to get my Blue Lion this month.

It represents what Mattel was going for, cartoon accuracy.

Thanks for the suggestion. I already sent reprolabels.com an email. Here’s a template for others who want to use it. Feel free to cut and paste. I am sure they will produce the stickers if they hear from enough of us:

Hi there,

I am one of the many collectors of the Voltron Classics from Mattel. As much as I enjoy the product, like many other fans, I feel the product could use more details by adding stickers to the lions. Could you help us with this? Please let me know. I know I’m not the first to contact you about this. Thank you!

Your name
