Mattel Voltron Classics Blue Lion and Princess Allura Figure Review
Tuesday, August 14th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Mattel’s massive Voltron is getting ever so close to being complete! This month we get the 4th lion which makes up the right leg!
Join me for an in-depth look at the Blue Lion and it’s royal pilot Princess Allura!
Video after the jump!
I bugs me when to call the lions "he". The lions arn't alive and the legs are backwards. I do miss the numbers.
Ahhh, but it is hinted at many times that the lions DO have a life force. They recognize their pilots.
When? If it's in Voltron Force, I'm not sure if I count that. Besides that's after these.
I don't know if it counts as the lion's life force, but remember the episode with the guy Prince Bokar who was really an awesome cobra robeast in disguise? At one point Bokar tried to hijack the lion and the spirit of King Alfor busted him in the cockpit. Also, it does seem that Voltron shows some personality in the fight with Bokar. Voltron seems legitimately pissed off at the robeast as evidenced by the big superimposed lion roaring and then Voltron crackling with energy and his eyes glowing as he split Bokar with the Blazing Sword.
PS-Voltron busts out a flame thrower at point blank range to Bokar's face. Old School Voltron did not F around.
After watching that one all of that did happen, but it's iffy. I need something clearer, like dialog.
And Dan forms the head! Hilarious.
LOL! Loved the 'I'll form the head' gag. I think I'm still generally okay with my decision to pass on Matty's Voltron lions, but it does make me wish I'd been able to get ahold of Toynami's Masterpiece Voltron a few years back when it was available and before the secondary market prices shot through the roof.
Toynami's Masterpiece Voltron is still the best Voltron to date, hands down. It sucks that it's gotten so expensive on the after market. Every Voltron fan needs one!
Great reveiw as always but now we need one for Sven.
When I get Sven, I will probably review. But he's going to be the same as all the other pilots, just with a different head. 🙂
What about the assembled sword?
Still have one more piece with the black lion. I'll show the fully assembled sword once I get that final piece.
Great review. Looks awesome but you forgot to show how the key works the cockpit
probably gonna just get the blue lion, looks cool by itself, except it has a little primary coloration, but its mainly blue
My blue lion is on its way and I will not open Sven he is staying on the card
