LEGO reveal their new, massive Voltron set… and it’s a thing of beauty

June 29th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Holy heck!

LEGO have delivered this time! Based on one of the LEGO ideas winners, we are finally getting a Voltron toy we can be proud of… and it just happens to be made of tiny bricks!

Based on the design first seen in the classic 1984 animated series, rather than the modernized update with Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender, this truly collectible toy is composed of a whopping 2,321 pieces, and the kit is one of the biggest mech-based sets LEGO has ever produced, measuring in at 15 inches tall.

Featuring buildable and highly posable black, blue, yellow, red and green lions with specially designed, extra-strong joints to combine them all and create the Voltron super robot, Voltron’s huge sword and shield will also be included, and can attach firmly to the hands.

Priced at $179.99 USD, availability is scheduled for August 1, according to LEGO’s website.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
