I have been a HUGE fan of Voltron ever since it came out in the 1980’s. I was excited to find out that Netflix came out with a new series from DreamWorks Animation, Voltron Legendary Defender, which debuted as a Netflix original series in June 2016. he series is a contemporary reimagining of the pop culture phenomenon featuring five young pilots of mystical robot lions that combine to form Voltron, the most powerful defender in the universe. I watched a number of the episodes and was really impressed with the quality and the story that was being shared.
Recently I have even seen that there are a number of very cool toys that surround the new Voltron series. I received a few of the new Playmates Toys, Voltron Legendary Defender toys.
The collection from Playmates Toys, which hit shelves at select retailers nationwide this month, features a wide range of action figures and roleplay including:
- The highly detailed and articulated basic action figure assortment includes all of the heroes and villains of Voltron, and each figure comes equipped with incredibly fun action features.
- The Legendary Lion assortment includes all 5 Lions that can combine to unlock unique phrases and sounds from the show and form a 16” articulated Voltron figure.
- The 14” Ultimate Voltron Figure features electronic lights, sounds, incredible detail, articulation and more.
- The roleplay assortment includes Voltron and Red Lion masks and swords, as well as an electronic transforming version of Voltron’s sword.
As mentioned I received a few of these and have to say that the toys are amazingly lifelike and very true to the series. The toys’ limbs move easily and I found that they made me want to go out and find the other four lions that I had not yet collected to be able to form the full Voltron character. While I have yet to do this, I hope to still do this soon.
If you are a fan of Voltron like I am I highly recommend that you check out the Playmates Toys, Voltron Legendary Defender toys, you will not be disappointed!
