Based on the sites that are offering pre-orders for the whole case is ridiculous markups I'm pretty sure a case of the legendary lines has one of each of the red blue green yellow.

I wouldn't worry just yet because Target and Walmart are still going to get them they just may not put up the pre-orders

Not too worried, just impatient...ha ha. Ever since watching the series I've wanted some figures. I've been messing with the Marty version in the meantime.

I wonder if Target will have a reset soon. If these are hitting alongside the 12/2 date for Power Rangers movie merchandise, they might. Though I think the next one isn't until after the holiday.

On topic, I don't think Amazon ever had them in stock. Just third party sellers at silly prices.

Ultimateranger do you remember the price you saw them for on Amazon? Trying to determine if it was the 3rd party sellers you saw or if it was the actual Amazon listings
I saw it for 149.99 with like $18.99 shipping , and it said the seller was Playmates. I questioned though about the shipping and price for the five lions also.

Here you go this is what I saw :https://www.amazon.com/Voltron-Yello...s=voltron+lion

Yeah that's third party, Anson never listed then inn stock, but they are on the site if you include out of stock listings. And the packaging looks really good 👍

Everything's up on Target. Just not in stock. At least I could get a DPCI #, but not showing anywhere right now.

For future reference, DPCI for the Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow lions is 087-06-6487. DPCI for the Black Lion is 087-06-6492. Those are the two DPCIs you want to use when looking them up at stores.

None in my area either, btw.

I'll wait to see them in person. Never trust Playmates' press photos.

Playmate's is the master of the ol' bait and switch when it comes the paint used on press shots. I know it's not going to matter to me as long as they are good toys. Like being able to form Voltron and not fall over with the slightest forward arm position (Mattel) or have a sword too damn heavy the red lion can't hold it (Toynami).

The Let's Voltron podcast interviewed Jeff Trojan, who is the VP of Marketing for Playmates and get this. He worked on the Star Trek line and the fan-fucking-tastic Exo Squad line and JT from Exo Squad is named after him... kind of.

It's worth a listen, it's a good interview when they are talking to him and hearing his history in the toy business. They mentioned the concept of modular Robeast, and that's something that I think would just be fantastic. They've already done it for Ninja Turtles, and while I didn't care for it there, it's a different ballgame when you can create unique villains instead of just part swapping existing heroes.

http://www.letsvoltron.com/

He mentions playmates has a long year plan laid out for this line and as long as it's supported we could see a Castle Ship playset and a series of Lion's able to have pilots fit in them. Playmates were the first to go balls to the wall and make a huge sewer lair playset, and it worked for them. It still works for them apparently. They also don't mind doing villain vehicles so I'm hopeful we can see the Galra ships in the 17.99 Legendary Lion wave.

The toys are up for preorder on Amazon, sort of.

Black Lion is here: https://www.amazon.com/Voltron-Legen...ndary+defender

but if you search for the Legendary Lion (limbs) or the basic action figures, you get taken to a listing where you can't select the individual lion or figure.

I tweeted the situation to Amazon and they gave me this link that works for the Legendary Lions

https://www.amazon.com/Voltron-67003...inkId=31909982

Still waiting on one for the basic figures but I'll post it as soon as I find it.

Also Amazon is a little bit higher right now, so could everyone, even if you aren't ordering from them click the Tell us about a lower price link and give them the links to TRU and Target for the cheaper prices?

With a ship date of 1/1, I might hold off on the preorder and keep an eye out for early store appearances. Should be any time now.

It's also a pain to have to go to various places just to get all the lions!

I noticed some of the preorders are sold out on TRU. Not a lot of chatter about it online, but these seem to be some pretty popular toys.

Is there another forum devoted to talking about this?

Whether it was expected/intended or not, I suspect this will be the main competitor against the PR movie toys, seeing as they're selling their combining robots in the same method.

However unfortunately more Adults will buy Voltron as Power Rangers failed to capture the nostalgia

The Lions look very good and they're very well articulated for their price. The PR Movie zords have some real tough competition.

The basic sword attack Voltron showed up on ebay from Fl. Lots of paint apps gone, most noticeably the face is almost totally silver. Not really feeling it personally, the sword is short and stubby and it just feels very plain.
