Mattel's 23" Voltron

Ok, so yesterday was the big day for Voltron fans. It marked the date subscriptions became available to purchase the set. I jumped on it of course. The damage came out to $75.55 including shipping for subscription fee, the Red Lion and Lance the pilot.

Well, now that I'm thinking about it, it does seem really really pricey. Granted $15 was for the sub fee (probably the payment for the Exclusive Sven figure too.) and $10 was for shipping. Still, I slapped down money without knowing if it's really going to turn out nice. I did bad mouth the SDCC Blazing Sword Voltron and it actually turned out to be a pretty badass fig. I'll be taking a look at that figure here on my blog soon. Anyways, back to the 23" Voltron. So get this, you pay the close to $80 and you have to wait until the end of January to get the first set?! WTF? Wow, we must be funding the production in advance. Look, as long as it turns out good and faithful, Im good. I'm just not happy at how expensive it will turn out to be.

First issue release of the Voltron

If you want to sport a transforming 23" Voltron with 3.75" figs, make sure to visit Or you can try your luck at buying it without a sub but you run the risk of not getting the complete set. And you can forget about getting Sven as he is a subscription doubt he will end up on eBay for big bucks.
