Playmates Toys sent me a partial selection of the new Voltron Classic Lions figures for free to check out and review. Opinions are my own.
I was asked if I’d like to receive a partial sample of the new Voltron Classic ’84 Legendary Lion Collection. I figure, a partial sample is better than no sample so I agreed. I have been watching the new Voltron: Legendary Defender and the Voltron ’84 shows on Netflix and I am enjoying them very much. I had heard that there would be some Classic style Voltron Lions being produced and I am really impressed.
Here is some official information on the Classic Legendary Lions figures.
- Combine all five Classic Legendary Lions to form a fully-articulated 16″ Classic Voltron figure with a chest that lights up and unlock over 60 sounds from the original 1984 show!
- Each lion is fully articulated, with the Blue, Red, Green, and Yellow Lions including jaw blades and projectile firing battle accessories. Also, the Red Lion comes with Voltron’s sword and the Green Lion comes with Voltron’s shield.
- The Classic Legendary Black Lion has electronic lights and features over a dozen phrases and sound effects from the original 1984 show. Unlock the Black Lion’s 60+ sounds by assembling the 16″ Classic Voltron figure.
- The Black Lion transforms into the head and body of Voltron, while the four other Classic Legendary Lions transform and combine to form Voltron’s arms and legs.
- Recommended Age: 4+
- MSRP:$17.99 each for the Blue, Green, Red and Yellow Classic Legendary Lions
$29.99 for the Black Classic Legendary Lion

These lions are large. They look like the Classic Lions from the original series and have some great articulation and details as well as weapons that fire projectiles. I received the Green and the Blue Lions. These two lions belong to Pidge (Green Lion) and Allura (Blue Lion). Green Lion is the left arm of Voltron and Blue lion is the right leg. I may have to get the other three lions to complete the set and build that 16″ Voltron. Of course, then I’m going to want all the Legendary Lions from the current series to make that Voltron, too. I’d love to compare them. I included some Box shots so that you can see what you need to look for in stores.

The lions also come with additional accessories. The Green Lion has a blade that it holds in its jaws. It also comes with Voltron’s Shield which also can be held in the jaws. There is a battering spike and a missile launcher that can be attached to either side of all four of the lion’s legs. The Blue Lion comes with a jaw blade, beam emitter and a missile launcher.
I thought it was a funny shot so I put the shield on the green lion and now it looks like some sort of crazy umbrella.
Now I am more curious then ever to get the rest of the set and “Form Voltron!”
