Review: Playmates Toys Classic 84′ Voltron

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Playmates Toys has actually been doing a fantastic job in my opinion when it comes to the Voltron Lions. Both the Legendary Defender (albeit a bit finicky) and these Classic Voltrons are amazing releases and I can’t wait to see if they will be making another versions. The paint QC issue is something I really wished Playmates Toys really looked into, but overall the lions turned out much better than I expected. In conclusion I recommend…

Review: Legendary Voltron Week Day Six- Voltron

Today is the final day for Legendary Voltron Week on my channel as we look at the full combination of Voltron. Today we will be looking at the combined form of Voltron.  The individual lions may be limited in their functionality on their own, but they work well together when they fully form Voltron.  Most of the articulation utilizes the articulation of the lions, which works decently for the main form of Voltron.  While I am okay with the articulation on the figure mostly, however I am just glad a Voltron…

Voltron Week – Day 6: Voltron Legendary Defender Deluxe Voltron Review

For Day 6, we assemble our Legendary Lions to form Voltron, Defender of the Universe! This new incarnation is a hefty 16″ inches tall and now activates further sounds within the Black Lion featuring dialog between our pilots, the other paladins besides Shiro. However, the Deluxe Voltron does have significant flaws! There is quality issues among the toys where Blue’s and/or Yellow’s front legs cannot endure the weight of the combination as the heels; it is a rare occurrence that is now being noticed further by the fandom too.
