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.

All Five Classic Voltron Lions

I received some incredibly exciting Voltron news yesterday. Netflix has a special series called Voltron ’84 and it is great to see those classic shows with new intros by the current cast and creators of Voltron Legendary Defender. We love Voltron Legendary Defender in our home and I’ve even got the kids to check out the classic show because of it. But as of now they haven’t been able to play with or even see the classic Voltron lions because, well, I never had any. Of all the great toys and games of the 80’s I was in the Transformers camp and therefore not in the Voltron camp and so I never had those toys. Much of this had to do with how the TV stations were set up in that time. Yes, there was a time before cable TV and you had to be close enough to a station to get the signal and so we did not get the signal for the channel that had Voltron at my home. I could only see it at my cousins’ house. So I barely ever saw the show. It is hard to have a huge connection with a show if you only get to see it every couple of months and not even full episodes. But, that all changes in January!!

This January stores will begin carrying the Voltron Classic ’84 Legendary Lions! They lions look spectacular and I cannot wait to see them and play with them. What’s more I really want to be able to form the classic Voltron in all his 16″ glory!
