This afternoon I decided to unbox all of my remaining Classic Voltron Lions. I received the green and blue lions from Playmates Toys. I did a review of the blue and green classic Voltron lions on the blog at back in January.
These Voltron ’84 lions are part of Playmates line of Voltron toys. I was in Target and saw that they put the last three figures on Clearance. I had to complete the set. I’ve been eager to unbox the remaining three lions and form the Classic Voltron of 1984. These toys are inspired by the Netflix series Voltron ’84 which is the classic series with intros from people who are working on Voltron: Legendary Defender, the new series on Netflix.
There is another series of Voltron figures that are out there, too. These are the five lions for Voltron: Legendary Defender and Toys R Us has a boxed set but it has not hit a deep enough discount to go and pick it up. Once it does I’ll try and grab it so I can compare the two. There is also another powered up set that is coming out later this year. The lions are going to be powered up by quintessence. Lots of translucent blue accents. They look fantastic!
For now, take a look at my live unboxing video and below that more details on this series of Voltron toys.
